  1. Do the ferry’s run in October

    • Hi Madeleine,

      Thanks for your question. The Cirkewwa-Mgarr ferry is running in October. For the Mgarr to Valleta crossing we can't see past september yet. But we expect that one to be sailing as well.

  2. I have tallinja explore flex card with gozo standard. Can I go with this card from Valetta to Gozo for free?

    • Hi Rafal, I noticed the following on the website of the Explore Flex provider:

      Gozo Standard – This package is perfect for those planning to explore Gozo. It includes 6 days of unlimited travel on all bus routes, including the Tallinja Direct routes. You'll also enjoy a return trip to Gozo from Valletta with the fast ferry, ensuring you can make the most of your visit to this charming island. You’ll save €5 on this package costing €28.

      Meaning it will only provide a small discount, if you have the ExplorePlus package you can take the ferry for free. (Source)

  3. Will they be a winter timetable for the Gozo ferry traveling to Gozo in December 2023 and back January 2034

    • Planning for 2034 will be difficult! =)

      However you probably mean 2024, and for that you'll probably have to wait a few weeks, I dropped them an e-mail about it and will update you here when I hear anything!
