Travel to Malta:
Several airlines fly to Malta (Luqa International Airport) from most major European cities, as well as smaller airports.
The national airline, Air Malta, is kindly offering a discount to ESC2018 participants booking directly with the company.
A discount voucher is available via the registration process. Terms and conditions are available here.
Also information about how to reach the venue are available here.

Important information on accommodation:
You may find a list of suggested hotels here. The prices quoted are only valid if a booking is made directly with the hotel.
This list is by no means exhaustive, and a large number of hotels/hostels/apartments are available through online booking.
We strongly suggest that you stay in the general area of Valletta/Msida/Gzira/Sliema/St.Julian’s/Cottonera since bus travel may be quite slow especially during rush hours.
One final note of caution: Malta is very busy in the summer period, and especially because of the 2018 Valletta European Capital of Culture (V18) we expect an increased influx of tourists, and heavy hotel booking. We therefore urge you to book accommodation as early as possible .
