Looking to rent in Malta?
One of the biggest tasks that you will likely face on coming to the islands, either on a short or long-term basis, is finding that dream property to rent in Malta that best fits both your expectations and budgetary requirements.
It is somewhat uncommon to find properties that are directly for let from the owner in Malta. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the huge variety of sources available on the internet, including Facebook pages or obscure websites, to ensure you get the best deal possible.
Malta is a country where huge amounts of information is available through various Facebook groups or pages and this can therefore be a great tool for finding accommodation.
Having a number of available flats or rooms easily accessible on the same page can be a hugely convenient as a user, however, caution needs to be taken with the people that share the information on these pages and they can often be a little disorganised.
Here are a number of pages researched by the Maltalovers team that can be invaluable when looking for a place to rent in Malta:
Trusted letting agencies
If trawling through Facebook groups isn't for you, sourcing a trusted letting agency is the next port of call.
