A Facebook group made up of around 8,600 people which discusses matters relevant to Y-plate car owners is sometimes used as an ad- vertising space for people trying to rent these types of vehicles. This practise, although seemingly common, is illegal. Transport Malta, the regulator, has told this newspaper that "LY or GY plated ve- hicles cannot be rented to third parties." A MaltaToday journalist posing as an inter- ested party reached out to one of the people advertising a Y-plate vehicle for rent to inquire about the conditions for renting the vehicles. Upon answering, the woman offering to rent her Y-plate vehicle explained that in order to start renting the vehicle, a lump sum of €3,000 had to be paid. Two thirds of the sum were part of a "deposit," while the rest of the sum would be the first month's rent.
