Location information for Cyprus

Cyprus is best explored by rental car. 121CarHire.com has over 9 pick-up locations in Cyprus. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Cyprus is one of the Mediterranean's hottest destinations, literally. Noted for its buzzing beach resorts, ancient sights, and mountains, this dazzling island is divided into Turkish and Greek halves. Compare car hire so that you can fully explore this destination's rich culture.

Transport

[transport]

Larnaca International Airport is the main entry point, serving the town and resort of the same name on the Greek (southern) side. Ercan Airport, on the Turkish side, gets fewer visitors while travel by ferry is more of a novelty. Most people drive between the island's major locations since buses are infrequent and there are no trains.

Car Hire Cyprus

You can pre-book vehicles for pick up at Larnaca Airport, Ayia Napa, Protaras, and Limassol, among other Cyprus destinations. Budget, Thrifty, Europcar and Hertz are all represented, along with local Cypriot firms. Ayia Napa is 45 minutes' drive to the east of Larnaca International Airport with car hire in Cyprus and Limassol an hour's drive west.

Driving

Driving is on the left in Cyprus and the roads are of mixed quality. The main highway between Paralimni and Paphos is in surprisingly good condition and has up to six lanes in places, but country roads are often lacking. Bends are sharp, particularly in the Trodos Mountains, which should only be driven in daylight.

Things To See and Do

Cyprus is quite large – it is the third largest island in the Mediterranean – so there is plenty of driving to be enjoyed here. Tourists enjoy visiting the beaches on the south coast, trekking the rugged north coast, and seeing the monuments and landmarks of Nicosia. For a real adventure with car rental in Cyprus, take a drive to the lace village of Lefkara in the Trodos Mountains.

Best Time To Visit

Cyprus is hot, with average temperatures of over 30°C in summer (late June to early September) and maximums in the 40s (°C). May to June and September to October are nice for sightseeing, with temperatures in the 20s (°C), while winters are mild. Popular summer events include the Limassol Beer Festival (July), the Limassol Wine Festival (August) and the Ayia Napa International Festival (September).

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is 121CarHire.com the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by 121CarHire.com? at this location
