Taxi from Malta Airport to Sliema

  • Taxi Price from Malta Airport to Sliema = €20 | 18 min | 11.2 km

The taxi counter is inside Malta Airport Arrival Hall, located on the left side of the main exit next to the door. Behind the table displayed a board of taxi price lists from Malta Airport to various destinations.

You have to make payment at the counter first, then the staff will pass you a receipt. A female taxi driver happened to be standing around the corner. She took the receipt from me and subsequently, we walked over to her taxi outside the main exit.

The odd thing was that the taxi had another lady sitting at the front of the passenger’s seat. They took my mobile where I had stored my friend’s address in Sliema and keyed it on the GPS.

The female was showing the taxi driver the GPS route on her mobile throughout the journey. What did not seem acceptable was that there should not be another unauthorised person sharing the cab with us. The taxi driver did not ask us for permission either.
