One-Way Car Rentals in Limassol

The most popular one-way rental options for pick up in Limassol and drop off in another city include:

  • From Limassol to Larnaca - 151 offers from € 11.55 per day

Top ways to enter Limassol

  • Larnaca Airport: The busiest in the country, Larnaca Airport is the main point of entry for foreign visitors. The airport is served by more than 50 airlines (although some are only active during the summer months), providing flights to and from all over Europe, as well as the Middle East and Africa. Larnaca Airport is only about a 50-minute drive northeast of Limassol.
  • Paphos Airport: Cyprus’ other international airport, Paphos Airport is especially popular with passengers of low-cost airlines like Ryanair and easyJet. Serving the city of the same name, the airport is about 60 km (37 miles) west of Limassol and can be reached in 45 minutes.

Top destinations and activities

  • Architecture. Limassol is home to a wide variety of architectural styles, making sightseeing one of the main attractions in the city. Landmarks include the medieval Limassol Castle, Ayia Napa Church, and the well-preserved Limassol old town. Mixing local, Greek, Byzantine, and British influences, hidden gems can be found every step of the way.
  • Museums. Part of the same cultural space as the ancient civilizations of Greece and Asia Minor, Cyprus has a truly fascinating history (in fact, some of the most famous Greek legends were set on the island). In Limassol, this heritage is best preserved in the Archeological Museum which has hundreds of interesting exhibits and artifacts like Stone Age axes, ornate Greek jewelry, and Roman terracottas. No less interesting, the Folk Art Museum focuses on the rather more recent history of the Cypriot people, showcasing their national costumes, crafts, and objects of everyday use.
  • Beaches. Since much of Limassol’s coastline is taken up by the harbor, access to the beach is somewhat limited in the city (although you can still find some nice spots). But many other popular spots like Malindi Beach, Pissouri Bay, and the Governor’s Beach are just a stone’s throw away — and with a rental car, you can also explore the rest of the coastline to the east and west.

Traffic and parking tips

Driving in Cyprus can be quite hectic for the uninitiated. Most traffic regulations are often treated as mere guidelines by Cypriot drivers with laws prohibiting driving under the influence being a notable exception (due to the harsh penalties). Expect other drivers to only care about themselves including ignoring road markings, making illegal shortcuts, failing to use their signal, and taking the best route for themselves through traffic circles (roundabouts). Also note that everyone else on the road will know that you are driving a rental car due to its red license plate (all rental cars have red license plates).

Due to Cyprus’ history as a British territory, traffic is left-hand drive, unlike in Greece or Turkey. 

There are roads on the island that are mountain roads or considered off-road meant for 4WD vehicles only. It is prohibited by all car rental providers to use these remote roads. Taking these roads will violate the rental contract and void any insurance. 

Parking may cause some concern for drivers. While there is free parking, it is often times hard to find a sport without parking somewhere you are not supposed to, though many others will have done the same already. At times it can feel as if sidewalks are actually just parking lots. The city has various municipal and private parking garages. These are often a driver’s best option. Some hotels do not have parking at all and garages must be used.  

Toll roads

There are no toll roads in Cyprus.

Ideas for a day-trip

  • Paphos. Compared to Limassol and Larnaca, Paphos might strike some visitors as very relaxed, but this small city actually boasts a very interesting past. A UNESCO Heritage Site, it is home to the impressive Paphos Archaeological Park which has a number of notable sites, not least of which are two Roman villas with well-preserved mosaics. Other sites like the Odeon Amphitheater and the Tomb of the Kings are also very much worth a visit.
  • Nicosia. Not located on the coast and without an international airport, the capital of Cyprus is not as popular with tourists as Limassol or Larnaca, but the city has plenty to offer. In addition to plenty of interesting museums and galleries, Nicosia also boasts some of the country’s most impressive churches and a special, timeless atmosphere. Located some 85 km (53 miles) northeast of Limassol, the capital can be reached in about an hour.
  • Kourion. Another site of historical significance, Kourion (or Curium) is the archeological remnants of an ancient city. Affected not only by the passage of time, but also a number of earthquakes, its temples, baths, and theaters nonetheless provide an insight into what life was like for the inhabitants of the region 2,000 years ago. Located only 17 km (11 miles) from Limassol, the site can be reached in about 20 minutes. Kourion is technically inside the British-controlled Akrotiri and Dhekelia, but the territory has the same visa policy as Cyprus.

Most popular rental types and cars
