Booking Accommodation as an Intern in Malta

Need a place to live during your stay in Malta? We can help you by finding the best accommodation to suit your needs. Whether you’re interested in an apartment, host family or hotel, let us know and we can manage this for you.

How it works:

There are many different options for accommodation. These mainly include apartments (single or shared), hotels and host families. Following confirmation of the type of accommodation wanted, we will then search for the best option as close to the internship place of work as possible and present them to our clients. The accommodation agreement is then finalised between the individual and the owner of the accommodation. Upon arrival in Malta, we meet the client at the accommodation to make sure everything is in order and to hand over the keys. We also help the individual settle into their lodging. Basic information about facilities and amenities in the neighbouring area are also discussed.

As mentioned above, we are informed by our clients as to which type of accommodation and area of the island are preferred.

Once the accommodation is accepted, the agreement between the individual and the owner is made. We meet and welcome all our clients once they arrive to be able to show them the lodging and give them basic information about the surrounding area.
