Expedia.com - Drivers wanted!


Renting a car is relatively easy, just make sure you take your driving license with you ! In Cyprus everyone drives on the left (same as the UK)

To get to see the beautiful scenery, get to travel to beaches in Protaras, and see the history of Cyprus, then a car rental is recommended.

Car rental prices start from around £15 (cyp) per day for an economy vehicle to anything around £40 (cyp) for a luxury large 4 wheel drive Jeep vehicle. All in all vehicles are reasonably priced, it's just availability that will be the issue, so you need to pre book your car if you are going in the peak season being July and August. The longer you book your car rental the cheaper the daily rate. You will usually gain a discount on the daily rate for any rental period of more than 5 days.

All rental cars are known as Z cars because all the rental cars have a Z number plate which is in a destinctive red colour. This tells all the locals that you are a tourist. In a way this works to your advantage telling them that you are on holiday and not in such a rush when traveling around.

On the other hand be aware of the driving habits of the locals who can go to take over without much notice and then decide to slow down straight away ! ..... don't ask, it's a cypriot thing !

Full third party insurance is provided with every car by law. However, it is recommended that you take out further Collision Damage Waiver (C.D.W) which will cost you in the region of £3 - £7 per day. Check the small print for the value of the excess and note the parts of the car not covered by the insurance.

You can instantly run a search using the car search section through expedia. Select the car link and enter your details. Enter Cyprus as your location. The nearest airport for Ayia Napa is "Larnaca". You can choose to pick up at the airport or Ayia Napa.
