Planning a trip to Malta can be hectic, especially if you’re super busy with the million other things currently going on in your life. Thankfully, nowadays, travel apps make things a lot easier for those of us who do not particularly enjoy wasting hours on fruitless research. In addition to serving as a source of inspiration, Travel apps transform booking, scheduling and organising into straightforward affairs.

Thinking of booking a trip to Malta?

Here are 9 apps that will make your travelling experience much more enjoyable and most importantly, hassle-free.

1. Skyscanner

Skyscanner should be your go-to app when it comes to finding and booking the cheapest available flights. This app allows you to compare flights, hotels as well as car hire, and it will notify you whenever prices change. Pretty nifty, right?!

2. PackPoint

This ingenious app is your personal stylist when it comes to travel attire. The app’s recommendations depend on factors like the length of your trip, the weather and the activities that you’ll be doing at your destination. It even takes your laundry situation into account! A must-have for frequent fliers!

3. Google Maps

You may already have Google Maps installed on your phone, but if not, install it right now. Don’t forget to download the specific city or region that you’ll be visiting so that you have the option to access the map offline – just in case the internet situation at your destination proves to be problematic.

4. Airbnb

Airbnb is one of the top travel apps for many individuals around the globe. The Airbnb app gives you access to thousands of accommodation options at your fingertips. You can filter results according to pre-existing filters such as price, specific amenities and home type. You’re also able to book local experiences such as diving, cooking classes, concerts, and many more.

5. XE Currency Converter

Malta’s official currency is the Euro. If you’re a non-EU national, you may want to download the XE Currency Converter App. This currency converter app provides all the necessary currency-related updates so that you don’t need to worry about unknowingly breaking the bank while you’re in Malta.

6. Google Translate

English is Malta’s official language – alongside native Maltese. However, it’s always handy to have Google Translate installed on your phone – just in case you’re ever in a situation where English is not understood, or you need to translate a Maltese phrase to English.

7. Tallinja

If you’re using public transport in Malta, downloading the Tallinja App is always a good shout. This app provides real-time information about the bus service and enables you to register for a Tallinja Card and top up your card on the fly.

8. Cool

Cool prides itself in being Malta’s “first on-demand ride-pooling service.” This service makes private rides affordable, as prices start from as little as €3.95 per ride. Download the app from the App Store or Google Play to request your first trip.

9. Visit Malta Plus

Visit Malta Plus is Visit Malta‘s official app and provides essential information about Malta, Gozo and Comino. Download this app to discover the best locations, restaurants, transport options and museums. It’s definitely the ultimate app when it comes to planning your trip to Malta!
