Oct 27 2021 Share

Ever since Economy Minister Silvio Schembri announced that the government voucher scheme has been extended until the end of October, we’ve been scrambling to find out where is the best place to spend our remaining vouchers. If you’re in the same situation, fear not, because we have scoured the internet and many Maltese businesses to find some of the best activities you can spend your vouchers on until they expire this weekend.

Grab a coffee

Let’s start simple. With temperatures dropping to absolute Winter-level and school & work schedules filled to the brim, grabbing a coffee is just what you need to take a break from your busy day-to-day life and catch up with your friends.

Malta has its fair share of great coffee shops and the choices are endless, so just grab your vouchers, hit up your WhatsApp group and grab a well-deserved coffee to deal with this weather.

Cinema Tickets

The longstanding charm and cultural value of cinema has stood the test of time and after what can be called a dark period which also saw the closure of theatres around the world, it would be more than appropriate to catch a flick at the cinema!

Grab some popcorn and a drink and let the cinematic experience sink in along with one of your favourite movies. You’ll be happy to know that both Eden and Embassy Cinemas accept government vouchers.


Bowling Games

Want to switch up the usual routine with the squad? Grab your government vouchers and head to the Eden SuperBowl to hit the lanes!

You can also redefine your night out and find out if you rule the lanes or belong to the gutter with Disco Bowling every Friday and Saturday from 9PM to midnight. Unlimited bowling, neon lights and the latest and greatest tracks – pair that with good company and a few drinks and you’re definitely in for a great night out.

Malta National Aquarium

Rediscover the beauty of nature by heading to one of island’s crown jewels in the Malta National Aquarium. The project consists of 41 tanks which include reptiles, insects, amphibians and a plethora of Mediterranean fish, making it not only an educationally-conscious outing but an aesthetically pleasing one at that.

…and if you have a couple of vouchers left, you can always grab a bite to eat from the mouth-watering menu at La Nave Bistro right on top!


Early Christmas Shopping

Despite it still being October, it’s never too early to sort out your Christmas Gifts and the government vouchers are just to right incentive to get you started on your holiday shopping.

Head over to one of Malta’s many retail outlets and get your loved ones just the gift that they deserve to ensure that you are one step ahead of your friends and family and treat them with the perfect Christmas gift!

So what are you waiting for? Grab what’s left of your vouchers and enjoy the last few weeks of availability in the best way possible!

Send this to someone who hasn’t used their vouchers yet!
