Reasonable prices all over Malta!
Malta is a small island and the local buses will take you to almost all places of interest. Bus fares are inexpensive and daily bus passes cost just €1.50 (weekly €6.50). These passes can be bought from the bus driver and entitle you to daily unlimited travel around the island. Direct buses to Valletta, Sliema, Cirkewwa, and the St. Julian's area are plentiful from St. Paul’s Bay.
Soft drinks such as coke and 0.5 litres of water costs around €1.00. A meal in McDonald’s costs around €6.50 and a sandwich in a local café will cost around €1.50. Based on these prices, the school advises that junior students have €100 pocket money per week of their stay.
