Our holiday to Malta is rapidly approaching and I wondered if anyone has any input regarding the spending money we might need. The Lira isn’t changing over to the Euro until January 2008, so I’ll be getting British Pounds exchanged for the Maltese currency. I can look up (and have looked up) the exchange rates, but that doesn’t tell me what the real spending experience is like on Malta.
I’ve read conflicting reports– some say living is cheap in Malta (for local goods and groceries), whilst others say Malta is expensive because so much is imported. We will have basic cooking facilities in our poshy-poshy hotel, so I plan on prepping several meals in the room. (Honestly, as long as we have bread, cheese, and some fruit, we can pretty much survive.)
Emails or comments appreciated. Ta.
