Malta Independent - - BUSINESS -

On the oc­ca­sion of the 1 mil­lionth over-the-counter travel card to be sold by Malta Pub­lic Trans­port, the com­pany sur­prised the lucky cou­ple who made this pur­chase at the Malta In­ter­na­tional Air­port Ar­rivals Lounge with a to­ken gift.

Ge­orge and An­dria, from Cyprus, were on their first trip to Malta, when they landed on the 24th of au­gust, 2018. The cou­ple en­tered the Malta Pub­lic Trans­port sales of­fice to pur­chase travel cards, and were sur­prised to learn that not only were they get­ting their travel card free of charge, but also re­ceiv­ing to­ken gifts to en­joy on their hol­i­day.

The cou­ple were each given an Ex­plorePlus card, which pro­vides seven days of free travel on pub­lic trans­port buses, two trips on the Val­letta Ferry, and an op­tion of a cruise to Comino on Cap­tain Mor­gan cruises or a day-tour on City Sight­see­ing hop-on, hop-off buses. They were also given the new Val­letta Card, which pro­vides 24 hours of travel on pub­lic trans­port buses, en­trance into Mu­se­ums, her­itage sites and/or Malta 5D ex­pe­ri­ence, a trip on the Val­letta Ferry and free min­utes on the new­ly­launched Tallinja Bike. The cou­ple also re­ceived res­tau­rant vouchers and bowl­ing tick­ets to make their hol­i­day com­plete.

Malta Pub­lic Trans­port of­fers cus­tomers a num­ber of over-the­counter travel card, that of­fer con­ve­nience and added value to those trav­el­ling in the coun­try for a short pe­riod of time. Apart from the Ex­plorePlus card and the Val­letta Card de­scribed above, the com­pany also of­fers Adult and Child Ex­plore cards with seven days of un­lim­ited travel by bus, and the 12 Sin­gle Day Jour­ney card, which of­fers a bun­dle of 12 trips at €15.

The over-the-counter travel cards of­fer the same con­ve­nience as the per­son­alised Tallinja Cards, since cus­tomers do not need to pay in cash each time they board the bus, while also ben­e­fit­ting from cheaper rates than cash tick­ets.
