SIM Cards in Malta: The Best Prepaid Plans | 2024 Guide

Malta – known for its weather, landscapes & culture.

The country is also popular with filmmakers due to its stunning landscape, which is perfect for many types of movies.

What makes Malta even more remarkable is that it is the smallest country in the European Union.

Luxembourg, the second-smallest nation in the block, is eight times larger than Malta, and many refer to it as tiny.

So, what to do in Malta? There are plenty of cathedrals to explore, like the St. John's Co-Cathedral.

Of course, you can enjoy one of the many beaches with Roman ruins, like Ramla Beach.

And if you are visiting Malta for your Instagram feed, be sure to take photos around the Azure Window, Blue Grotto & the Upper Barrakka Gardens.

As you can see, there is no reason to be bored.

And if you somehow get bored in Malta, make sure to swim to Italy (actually – do not try – you will not survive).

What you may also not survive is dealing with an expensive international roaming bill because you forgot to turn off data roaming.

But there is a way to avoid such bills… by staying home! No, by using local SIM cards, like a Maltese one, so that you can enjoy local rates.

Fortunately, Maltese SIM cards are reasonably priced and are available to anyone visiting the country.

You can get a Maltese SIM card for 10 EUR (10.70 USD) from Epic (formerly Vodafone) and GO, and for 5 EUR (5.35 USD) from Melita in their stores. SIM cards are also sold at Malta International Airport (MLA – Epic only).

Paying 10 EUR for a SIM card is quite normal in Western Europe. Luckily, mobile data rates are low in Malta too.

In this guide, I will go over everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Malta. Let's go.

What is the Best SIM Card in Malta?

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Malta, I recommend going with Epic or GO. Epic has the best overall network. GO is the fastest mobile operator in the country.

So, who are all these mobile operators and what options are available for you?

Malta has three mobile operators offering prepaid services easily accessible to tourists:

  • Epic Malta (formerly Vodafone)
  • GO Malta
  • Melita

Anyone living in or visiting Malta can buy a Maltese SIM card with no real restrictions, but you do have to comply with the Maltese SIM card registration regulations.

Which, in this case, is only showing your passport (or European Union ID if you have one) at the point of sale.

Where Can You Buy a Maltese SIM Card (+Costs)?

You can get a Maltese SIM card in Epic (formerly Vodafone), GO & Melita stores. Some Maltese airports sell (tourist) SIM cards (at inflated prices).

You can expect to pay the following for Maltese SIM cards:

  • Epic Malta (formerly Vodafone Malta): 10 EUR
  • GO Malta: 10 EUR
  • Melita: 5 EUR

Note that SIM cards can be more expensive than those listed above when purchased at an airport.

(Travel) eSIMs for Malta

In recent years, (travel) eSIMs have become extremely popular.

Especially after Apple made iPhones (14- & 15 series) sold in the United States eSIM-only, forcing its users to use eSIMs – even when abroad.

As a result, the adoption of eSIM technology by mobile operators worldwide rose impressively quickly.

Currently, only GO Malta offers eSIMs to prepaid customers.

But if you purchase an eSIM from any of these mobile operators, you must comply with Malta's SIM card registration regulations.

Suppose you do not wish to do so for privacy reasons (for example) or want to be connected immediately without paying for an overpriced SIM card (or eSIM) sold at a Maltese airport. In that case, you may consider getting a travel eSIM for Malta.

In my Malta eSIM buying guide, I analyze various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

Buying an eSIM for Malta Guide (logos of Holafly, Nomad, Eurolink, Discover+, Maltafone, Alosim & Airalo)

Surprisingly, travel eSIMs can be cheaper than a Maltese SIM card or eSIM in specific scenarios.

Moreover, Europe-wide and global eSIM options are also available at competitive prices (without having to deal with expensive international roaming rates).

In this Malta SIM card buying guide (the one you are reading), I will stick to the local SIM cards and eSIM, but you can read my Malta eSIM buying guide for more information about travel eSIMs covering the country.

But here is a quick overview already + applicable discount codes if you are interested in purchasing a travel eSIM for Malta:

  • Airalo: Maltafone (Malta only), Eurolink (39 countries in Europe) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + up to 200 worldwide minutes & 200 worldwide SMS)
  • Alosim: Malta & Europe (32 countries)
  • Holafly: Malta & Europe (32 countries) – all variants in both options include unlimited data + up to 120 Europe-wide calls
  • Nomad: Malta, Europe (30 or 35 countries, depending on the variant) & Global (109 or 139 countries, depending on the variant)

Here are some discount codes to sweeten the deal:

  • Airalo: FEB15 for 15% off (if you have never bought an Airalo eSIM before). Otherwise, FEB10 for 10% off (for existing users) – only the first 3000 users can redeem either discount code)
  • Alosim: PTW for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)
  • Holafly: PHONETRAVELWIZ for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)

Once again, check out my Malta eSIM buying guide to learn more about these eSIM options.

Buying an eSIM for Malta Guide (logos of Holafly, Nomad, Eurolink, Discover+, Maltafone, Alosim & Airalo)

The eSIM guide is as comprehensive as this SIM card buying guide, but it solely focuses on travel eSIMs (while the guide you are reading focuses on local SIM cards and eSIMs for prepaid users (where applicable).

Melita

Melita Malta Logo

Melita is the smallest mobile operator in Malta.

It wanted to merge with Vodafone Malta (now: Epic Malta) back in 2017.

However, as the combined mobile operator would have more than 60% market share, the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority (MCCAA) had doubts.

In December 2017, the merger was called off.

Melita uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: N/A – may have been shut down already
  • 3G: 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20) & 1800 MHz (Band 3)
  • 5G NR: 2100 MHz (n1) & 3500 MHz (n78)
  • VoLTE: No

It also has the best 5G NR coverage, as it rolled out its 5G NR network at least five months ahead of its competitors.

You should consider getting a travel eSIM for Malta because they can sometimes be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Melita.

Especially if you get a Europe-wide eSIM or a global eSIM.

I discuss various eSIM options of eSIM providers for Malta in my Malta eSIM buying guide, which are:

  • Airalo: Maltafone (Malta only), Eurolink (39 countries in Europe) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + minutes and SMS) – use code FEB15 (15% off – first-time users only) or FEB10 (10% off)
