    Driving in Cyprus

    Located in the Mediterranean Sea, between Turkey, Egypt and Greece, Cyprus is an island paradise famous for its ideal climate and amazing history. The island is both a popular holiday destination and a well-kept secret with an amazing range of attractions that you can explore in your car hire freely and in comfort.

    Most visitors fly into the city of Larnaca, which dates back 6000 years and has a deep history unlike any other place on earth. Drive your hire car to the Church of Lazarus, which is over 1000 years old and a perfect example of the historic architecture present in Cyprus. Heading west of the city you will find Larnaca Salt Lake, home to many species of migratory waterbirds, in particular, Pink Flamingos which visit the lake in their thousands every January and February. Keen scuba divers, head out on a dive trip in the harbour to the wreck of the Zenobia, a huge ship which sunk right near the harbour in 1980.

    The capital of Cyprus, Nicosia is an interesting and vibrant city. Check out the Ledra Observatory Museum, located in the tallest building in the area, the Shacolas Tower. The top floor of the building provides a spectacular panoramic view of the city, and the tower also houses a medieval museum. While in Nicosia, be sure to check out the Cyprus Museum. Home to artefacts collected on the island over hundreds of years, the museum is the largest museum on the island and being established in 1882 is also the oldest.

    The city of Paphos lies on the coast and is home to Kato Paphos, a historic fort built near the harbour dating back to the 13th century. Also worth visiting here is Yeroskipou, a town in Paphos, home to a Byzantine church built in the 11th century, definitely a sight to see.

    Country Essentials

    Unlike many other countries in Europe, traffic in Cyprus travels on the left-hand side of the road. Headlights must be used 30 minutes before sunrise and sunset. Speed limits in Cyprus range from 50km per hour in the city to 100km per hour on open roads. All passengers in the car are required to wear a seatbelt. Children under the age of 5 are not permitted to sit in the front seat and children aged between 5 and 10 years may only sit in the front if the car is fitted with an appropriate child seat. Similarly to Australia is it illegal to use a mobile phone while driving. Parking is prohibited at all times where there are double yellow lines painted on the curb. A single yellow line on the curb indicates the area is a loading zone and parking here is not permitted.

    Standard Inclusions

    Auto Europe includes the Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and theft protection in the Cyprus car hire rates. The CDW and theft protection reduce the liability and excess of the driver to a capped amount. Fire insurance is also included in the price of your car hire.

    Licence Requirements

    To hire a car in Cyprus you must be at least 21 years old and have held your licence for three years, however, a young driver surcharge may apply to drivers under the age of 25. A maximum age limit does apply and can be discussed with your Auto Europe agent at the time of booking.

    Tolls and Freeways

    There are currently no toll roads in Cyprus. The roads and motorways are usually classified into five different categories including motorways, main roads, roads, local roads and unclassified roads. Motorways have two lanes for each direction, main roads usually have one lane each way and roads are paved and connect rural areas through one lane in each direction similarly to local roads.

    Border Crossings

    There are restrictions when driving in Cyprus as to which borders can be crossed. Travellers who hire cars in South Cyprus are permitted to drive into North Cyprus. However, those who hire a car in North Cyprus are unable to cross the border into the south of the island due to insurance restrictions. Although one-way car hires are permitted from certain locations in Cyprus, minimal hire periods and fees may apply so be sure to check before you go.
