The over the hill gang.

Are there any discounts to attractions or transport concessions available to senior EU citizens?

Thank you for any advice.

No transport discounts, but most attractions will give a discount for 60+.

Bus ticket €21 for the week each so €3 a day about the best you will get.Ho Ho will give you a free boat trip from Sliema into Valletta and around the harbour in Valletta about 2 hours great for photos.

The HoHo bus ticket used to also entitle you to a free harbour cruise but I don't think that applies any longer. There are sometimes good offers on the "Deal Today" website if you book in advance.

There are generally concessions on entrance fees to museums and other attractions although sometimes the reductions aren't particularly generous. However we recently went to a performance at the Manoel Theatre in Valletta and were happy to get tickets at half price for 60+.

Some price lists state that 60+ reductions are only valid for holders of a Maltese senior citizens' pass, but on a couple of occasions I've pleaded and been allowed the concession (I'm from Yorkshire, you know!). This is also the case for the ferries from Sliema to Valletta and Valletta to Bormla - it only costs 50c for Maltese pensioners so I've only paid 50c the last few times. Sorry if that makes me sound a bit mean.

I think "Sir Geoffrey" would be able to pay full price even though he's a pensioner...

Many thanks for your advice and tips. I'll buy the weekly bus ticket and look into the HoHo.

All packed and ready for tomorrow.
