Car rental in Cyprus

Arriving on vacation in Cyprus, you are unlikely to want to stay all the time in one place. You can order a group or individual excursion. You can travel to nearby cities by public transport (or by taxi). But only your own car will give you complete freedom of movement. You can visit the places you want and spend as much time there as you wish.

Of course, no one flies to Cyprus with his car. For this there is a car rental. Renting a car is not cheap, but it's cheaper than buying excursions or traveling by taxi.

You are advised to rent a car if:

  • You like to travel a lot (do not want to spend the whole vacation in one place).
  • You can find information about the places you want to visit (description, location).
  • Driving a car is a pleasure, not a job for you.
  • You do not want to coordinate your schedule with anyone (tourist group, bus schedule).
  • You want to visit places where there are no group tours.

You should not rent a car:

  • If you just want to spend your holidays in peace, in the hotel and on the beach.
  • If you drive badly.
  • If you like to be served (brought, told, taken away).
  • If driving is a job that you want to rest from.

Cyprus has a lot of rental offices where you can rent a car. You will find rental offices at the airport, near the hotels, in the tourist centers.

The cost of rent depends not only on the type and brand of car, but also on the season. The rental price is lower in winter and higher in summer.

At the peak of the tourist season, all the most popular car brands may already be occupied. Therefore, we recommend booking a car in advance via the Internet. (Once I managed to find a suitable car only in the fourth rolling office, at a distance of about one kilometer from the hotel in May.)

There is a left-hand traffic in Cyprus, the steering wheel in the car is on the right. But this is not a big problem. Just do not rely on driving skills and be careful. Choose the right lane after turning. (I was used to the second day.) Local drivers treat rental car drivers with understanding. We recommend choosing a car with an automatic transmission (so as not to change gears with your left hand).
