Foreign Currency Exchange

Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks, exchange bureaus, some hotels as well as some larger shops and restaurants. Banks usually offer best exchange rates. Many exchange bureaus are open 24 hours. Another option for foreign travelers is to use money exchange machines that are available at various locations in Malta, mostly in the main tourist areas.
