Guide to Cyprus Car Hire

Because so much of Cyprus's appeal is its natural beauty, traveling by car has long been the preferred method transportation for tourists. Many of the places travelers hope to visit in Cyprus aren't accessible by public transportation, but are connected through well-paved, visitor friendly roads that wind though gorgeous Mediterranean scenery.Finding the Best Car Hire Deal When shopping for a rental car, it's best to find an agency local to the area that offers rates and cars from 3-4 different rental companies. Local travel agencies know which car rental companies are most reputable and trustworthy in the area.

By comparing several options for pricing and packages, you can find money-saving deals and make more educated decisions about the car you choose to hire.Booking a Car for Hire in Cyprus Car hire dealers often boast money saving discount packages via the Internet. To ensure that deals and reservations are valid once you arrive, book your car hire from a third party travel company within Cyprus who has first hand knowledge and direct access to the rental agencies.

Car Hire Age Requirements To take a car for hire, a renter must be at least 21 years of age and have had a valid driver's license in any country for at least 3 years. Those with children should reserve child safety seats online when booking their rentals. Children under the age of 5 are required by law to ride in a safety seat. Cypress car hire agencies can also impose a maximum age for rental eligibility for those between 65 and 75 years of age.

Driving in Cyprus Reminiscent of its rule by the British until 1960, Cyprus driving rules follow the guidelines of those in the UK. The steering wheel is on the right side of the vehicle and driving is done on the left side of the road. Speed is measured in kilometers per hour with the maximum speed being about 100 km/h, or about 62 miles per hour.Driver License Visitors only need a valid driver's license from their own country or an international driver's license to hire and drive a car in Cyprus.

The driver's license must be valid for the same class of vehicle you wish to rent (such as a passenger car, motorcycle, etc).Insurance While many car insurance companies cover rental cars within the country where the policy is written, most insurance companies will not transfer the insurance coverage to a foreign country. In Cyprus, third party liability is mandatory up to $78,000 US dollars. When leaving the country, it's best to take insurance with the car hire package instead of guessing about various requirements or missing details with extended international coverage.Parking in Cyprus Cities You'll be able to navigate your way around some of the larger cities such as Lananca, Paphos, and Nicosia, by foot. However, since most hotels are located away from the city and require that you drive in, it's important to remember to bring change for parking meters.

Parking meters usually require one 20 cent coin per hour. Because of the low parking costs, choosing a car hire as opposed to a taxi or bus can be a smart choice economically when traveling around various cities in Cyprus.Whether you're planning a trip to Cyprus for its rich cultural landmarks or the gorgeous natural scenery, choosing a car hire for transportation is the preferred method among travelers. Finding the right Cyprus car hire deal can be simple and stress-free when you compare rates and packages through a local agency.
