Financial transactions

You may withdraw Euros from a BOV (Bank of Valletta) or HSBC ATM at the airport. This is recommended over the poor exchange rates you’ll be offered from the currency exchange stations within the airport. There are exchange houses in Valletta for converting currencies to Euros. It is difficult to exchange travelers’ checks in Malta, so you are discouraged from relying on that as a currency.

Most restaurants and stores accept Visa and Mastercard, though many do not take other cards (such as Discover and American Express). Minimum purchase with a card is often €10 as companies are charged for purchases by credit/debit.

Value-Added Tax (VAT) in Malta is 18%. It is always included in purchases.


The unit of currency in Malta is the Euro. 


There are banks in all the towns and villages with additional "Bureaux de Change" in Sliema, St Julians and Valletta.  

Bank of Valletta and HSBC banking hours are as follows:
