Top tips for hiring a car in Cyprus

  • Renting a car in Cyprus is the best way of seeing the island’s stunning views, including the mountains and coast. As public transport is scarce in Cyprus, the quickest and easiest way to travel is by car. With your own car, you will have the freedom to discover Limassol and the nearby mountain village of Omodos, which is 24 mi away, as well as the surrounding wine villages, or Krasohoria.
  • When you leave the airport, it is important to recognize that in Cyprus, children under the age of five are not allowed to travel in the front of vehicles. It is advised that, upon arrival in Cyprus, parents travel with a car seat for their children or rent one at the car rental desk for an additional cost of around 5 € ($6). All children must be placed in a suitable child seat in the rear of the car.
  • As parking is limited in major cities and at tourist attractions, particularly during the peak months of July and August, you should look for parking meters, which charge around 2 € ($2.25) per hour, or park in private parking lots, which charge 2-3 € ($2-3) for half a day.
  • Because Cyprus has a hot climate, convertibles and open-top jeeps are a popular rental choice, especially if you are exploring the mountainous regions. Four-wheel drives are also great for up to five passengers and lots of luggage. For city trips or historical exploration, smaller cars or compact models are better suited for your needs, whereas if you want to drive across the whole island, a saloon offers the most comfort for longer journeys.
  • Book your car hire in Cyprus at least 4 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
