Shopping in Malta is pretty limited. It’s a tiny island and, whilst the selection of stores is improving every year, they don’t always offer the full ranges and you’ll find that shopping in Malta is often more expensive than elsewhere in Europe. For this reason, I always recommend online shopping when living in Malta. Most online shops deliver to Malta and, even better, delivery to Malta is often free and usually fast and reliable.
Online shopping to Malta is fast, convenient and even if the store is based here on the island, it’s usually cheaper online, so make sure to check before making any purchases. Save yourself some money, grab a bargain and give yourself the biggest selection of brands possible.

When it comes to online shopping to Malta I have some tips and advice;
- Always opt for recorded/tracked delivery where possible.
- Be prepared for some wait times. Deliveries usually arrive in Malta quickly but things can be slow on this end.
- Check online, even if the store is based in Malta.
- Never change the websites currency to EUR. The conversions are always bad. Shop in the native currency- your bank will give the best exchange rate.
That being said, it’s always good to support the local economy by shopping on the island when it makes sense. To see what stores and independent brands are available in Malta, check out my ‘Malta Gift Guide‘ posts.
