ActiveCabs good to use?

Does anyone have any experiences with ActiveCabs in Malta? We are thinking of booking a transfer from the airport with them. We are a group of five, some elderly, so we prefer a transfer over using the bus or the taxis.

Thanks.

Never heard of active cabs on this site seems no one else has either can’t advise!! perhaps better to let us know what area you are staying in and Hotel name. There are excellent transfer bus services (huge bendy type with luggage racks a/c)---X1/X2/X3/---they stop right outside the terminal building every half hour, cost 2 euros 60 cents see-----HTTP//GOO.9L/ MAPS/WIKP4---If you are staying in the North or Central areas maybe there could be a stop very close to your Hotel let us know? Hopefully you will have --- Phil The Bus the expert ---coming on here to advise you. Going back to the airport I advise a private transfer service local to your hotel, loads of them around don’t worry. That way you will not be committed, paying upfront and giving your credit card DETAILS online. Have a good trip and a wonderful time in Malta hope this helps you. KNOWKATS.

Hi. Thanks for the reply. Because some of us have restricted mobility, we want to avoid the bus. We will be travelling from the airport to Marsaxlokk.

The ActiveCabs website is here: activecabsmalta.com/EN/content/65/Malta_Airp…

Their can rental service (different to the airport transfers) used to be called Swansea car hire, and that firm does have some positive reviews here on TripAdvisor.

I have heard some positive reviews about Swansea Car Hire and so they are probably a good option. Since there are 5 of you with luggage you will require a larger vehicle so it is a good idea to pre book otherwise you could end up needing to take 2 taxis. It would not be easy to get to Marsaxlokk by bus since you would need to change buses en route which would be difficult with luggage and physically challenged passengers. Hope you enjoy your stay, you have chosen a lovely base for your holiday.
