Malta in General
Q. Is Malta an expensive country?
A. In recent years Malta has become more expensive. However, restaurants have still remained reasonably cheap in comparison to other European countries and local produce such as fresh fruit and vegetables are quite cheap. The cost for repairs and maintenance is much cheaper than in other European countries, but prices need to be fixed beforehand in order to avoid unpleasant surprises.
