Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

Ercan International Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Pick up your rental car Northern Nicosia Airport! Then head to the center, park outside the Old City, and explore on foot—make sure to check out the Selimiye Mosque, Kyrenia Gate, and the Samanbahçe Houses. To find out more about the island’s history, visit the Lapidary Archeological Museum, and to learn about Sufi dervishes, head to the Mevlevi Tekke Museum.

The Büyük Hamam, or Great Turkish Bath, is the perfect place to unwind. It’s been open for more than four centuries and is exactly what its name suggests. Fully relaxed, drive your rental back to Selimiye Mosque for another amazing experience—whirling dervish shows take place in Bedestan, the historical building next door, six days a week.

Northern Cyprus might be small, but there’s so much to see. Why not get a longer term car rental deal and explore its villages and beaches and more of its history and culture? You can even pick up your rental car at North Nicosia Airport and drop it off at another location. Start planning your adventure today!

Northern Nicosia Airport is also known as Ercan Airport, Lefkosa Airport, Tymvou Airport, and Ercan Uluslararası Havalimanı.

Terminals

Location

Northern Nicosia Airport is about 20 km (12.4 mi) southeast of Northern Nicosia or Lefkosa, and about 40 km (24.8 mi) from Kyrenia or Girne. Ercan Havaalanı Yolu, Gazimağusa-Lefkoşa Anayolu, Dr. Fazıl Küçük Bulvarı, and Şehit Mustafa Ahmet Ruso Caddesi are the main streets connecting the airport to the city. Northern Cyprus is a de facto independent state, albeit only recognized by Turkey. The Republic of Cyprus - the southern, Greek-speaking part of the island - considers Northern Cyprus to be a part of its territory. Despite the political dispute, the border between Northern Cyprus and the Republic of Cyprus is open for visitors to cross. However, car rental companies in Northern Cyprus do not permit crossing the border with a rental car. Most travelers who wish to visit Northern Cyprus first and the Republic of Cyprus later, pick up and later drop off a rental car in Northern Cyprus, then pick up a new rental car after crossing the border. There are many car rental companies in the Greek-speaking part of Nicosia as well as in the rest of the Republic of Cyprus.
