Do your greatest summer woes involve any of the following: Not having a car to get you to your night out; not being able to park your car when you're out, because – parking in Malta; not being able to relax and enjoy your night because you know you have to drive home after; all your friends asking you for a lift out because you're the only one with a license; almost crashing every time you're driving to a party because you're checking your mascara in the rear-view mirror...?

If you answered yes to one or more of the dilemmas listed, then we have news that might just be life-changing.

Malta is getting a DISCO BUS

3. You'll make new friends

When everyone in your klikka has shagged everyone else – hop onto the disco bus.

No more swerving across lanes to apply your third layer of lipstick. No one has to die for that perfect selfie-pout. 

5. Everyone will be on your partying-level
