Why rent a car in Cyprus?

Cyprus is a great place to visit. Known for its beautiful beaches and laid back atmosphere, the Mediterranean island country also has plenty of ancient history, unique culture, and nature to explore. Getting a rental car is the best way to explore everything that Cyprus has to offer.

Note: This article is primarily about the Republic of Cyprus, the southern part of the island of Cyprus which is a member of the European Union. 

Cyprus Car Rental

Top ways to enter Cyprus

  • Larnaca Airport: Cyprus’ busiest international airport serves flights to and from many destinations in Europe and the Middle East.
  • Paphos Airport: Small and cozy, Paphos Airport is mainly active during the summers and is popular among many low-cost carriers.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Larnaca. Although modern and developed, Larnaca is also one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities on the planet —  it was first settled more than 6,000 years ago. The city is surrounded by a number of beaches that are great not just for swimming and tanning, but also diving (it is even possible to explore the wreck of MS Zenobia, a ship that sank off the coast in 1980). Another popular local destination is the Larnaca Salt Lake, a pink flamingo wintering site.
  • Nicosia. The divided capital of Cyprus may not get the same amount of tourist attention as the coastal resorts, but is a wonderfully historical destination to explore. Attractions include the Archaeological and Byzantine Museums, a number of impressive churches, and a great atmosphere.
  • Paphos. The location of one of the two international airports in Cyprus, Paphos is known for its beaches, but also well-preserved ancient architecture that has earned it the distinction of being a World Heritage Site. Notable examples of it include the Paphos Archaeological Park with its Roman villas of Theseus and Dionysus, the Tomb of the Kings, and a well-preserved Greek amphitheater.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in Cyprus is the Kia Picanto, closely followed by the Suzuki Alto and the Chevrolet Spark.

Driver license requirements

  • The Republic of Cyprus recognizes foreign driver’s licenses if they are written in either a Greek or a Latin alphabet and if you’re visiting on a trip that’s shorter than six months. If you’re visiting on a longer trip or if you’re a permanent resident of Cyprus, you need to acquire a local driver’s license.
  • If your driver’s license is in another alphabet (e.g., Cyrillic or Arabic), you need to have an International Driving Permit (IDP).
  • Even if you have an IDP, you still need to also provide your valid driver’s license from your country
  • You must carry your driver’s license, not a copy of it, with you at all times. 
  • You need to have had your driver’s license for at least two years.
  • Some rental car suppliers charge a young driver fee for drivers between the ages of 22 and 25 and a senior driver fee for drivers over the age of 65.
  • There may be additional requirements depending on the car supplier and category, so make sure to check the rental conditions before booking.

Crossing Borders

The Republic of Cyprus, which this article is about, is a European Union member and consists of the southern half of the island of Cyprus. Its only neighbor is Northern Cyprus, a political entity that is only recognized by Turkey but is a de facto independent state. Depending on your citizenship, you may or may not need a visa to visit Northern Cyprus (even if you didn’t need a visa for entering the Republic of Cyprus), so it’s a good idea to consult your Ministry of Foreign Affairs in advance.

Most rental car suppliers in the Republic of Cyprus do not permit taking a vehicle to Northern Cyprus. You might find a few that do (always ask in advance), but even in this case, you won’t be able to drop off the car in Northern Cyprus — you will have to return to Cyprus and drop off your car there.

Most popular types of rental car

The type of car rented most often in Cyprus is a mini, but economy and compact are also popular.

Top driving routes

  • The Troodos Mountains. Despite being an island and the third-smallest country of the European Union, Cyprus is home to an impressive mountain range. Located near the geographical center of the island, Mount Olympus, the highest peak of the Troodos Mountains, reaches a height of 1,952 m (6,404 feet). Offering fascinating views of the island below, the area is also known for its hiking paths, ancient farms, and Byzantine monasteries.
  • Ayia Napa. Located even further east than Larnaca, Ayia Napa is the party capital of Cyprus. Popular with locals, it also gets a large number of visitors from the United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, and other European countries. Visit it during the day and you’ll also be able to enjoy its beaches or visit historical attractions like Ayia Napa Sculpture Park and the Thalassa Museum.
  • Akamas Peninsula National Park. Encompassing the westernmost edge of the island, the Akamas Peninsula is another popular outdoors destination. The area is home to the beautiful Blue Lagoon and the Avakas Gorge, as well as the Baths of Aphrodite, a natural pool which, according to legend, was the favorite swimming place of the Greek goddess. The peninsula is about a 90-minute drive north of Paphos.

Renting a car in Paphos or Cyprus in general is a must. The vistas are amazing, the nature is beautiful and you won't be able to see it all just by walking. The roads can be tricky though, their condition is not the best, so make sure you get a decent car or a jeep.
