If you intend to hire a car in Cyprus please bear in mind that you must have a valid driver’s license from your country of residence as well as an International driver’s license. Cars will not be hired to anyone under the age of 21 years and a minimum of 3 years driving experience is required if the driver is under the age of 25. Driving in Cyprus is done on the left hand side of the road and strict rules are in place regarding seatbelts, which must be worn at all times, and the use of mobile phones while driving is prohibited, unless it is hands free. Petrol stations are readily available in all the larger residential areas and you can travel from one side of the island to the other in a few hours. If you search on the internet, you will car hire companies in all major towns, Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca, Famagusta and Paphos. Most of these companies will meet you at the airport so you will have your rental car the minute you arrive. It is always better to book online before you travel to Cyprus as this will most likely cost you less.
