Electric cars to go free on the Gozo Channel ferries

You’ll be able to use the Gozo ferries for free soon – if you drive an electric car.

The week-long special offer to celebrate Santa Marija has been announced by Gozo Channel.

The idea is to encourage more Maltese drivers to switch from petrol to electric-powered cars.

Gozo minister Justyne Caruana welcomed the scheme, which will be funded by the Ministry of Gozo’s EcoGozo programme.

She said: ‘Thanks to this initiative, EcoGozo is contributing to reducing the emissions caused by the influx of vehicles on the island.’

The free offer will start at 5am on Monday 12 August and finish at midnight on Saturday 17 August.

Drivers of electric cars should show their logbook at the Gozo Channel ticket booths to benefit from the scheme.
