Having recently winessed the antics of some quad bikers recently on Malta, I would agree entirely with the last poster.They seem to forget that a quad bike is nearly as wide as a small car and force their way through gaps or make oncoming traffic take evasive action.

Don't expect a good reception from the locals if you drive one in Gozo as most think they should be banned - they make alot more noise than a bike or a car, and they are destroying the countryside by being driven over dirt tracks and walking paths

Too hot to be out in the open like that in the summer. You are better off in a car with AC. Also much safer

Since the aim of this forum is to Help travellers , I feel guilty that I may have started this thread on the wrong direction .

I think that it is difficult to find Quads for hire , but my search on the web has landed me here

http://www.goldenpagesmed.com/malta/7944

which gives a car hire company which may have Quad bikes apart from cars and bikes.

Try to contact them , if I do not before you .

I will continue to ask around for you but do not have time at the moment!!

You could also try to hire a 4WD open vehicle like the Maruti jeep.

This gozo carhire may help you

Much safer and carries up to 5 and about the same size for parking space !

This company organizes Quad bike tours of Gozo

they should be able to lead you to someone who rent Quads

I hope this makes up for my inappropriate advice , even if I stronly believe it was good advice :-)

Enjoy your holiday and always drive with the lights on and a full face helmet !

Thanks for all the links 643, il have look at them. Id like to stress though that i dont plan on going wild in the small towns and little roads. I have a car booked for my week in malta but i felt that i wont have a huge need for a car on a gozo i feel. maybe a small scooter would be more friendly :-)I forgot about the noise quads make. But i just love them!!
