Best places to visit in Cyprus

  • Paphos: Paphos is a Southwestern coastal region with the mildest temperatures in Cyprus. Known as the shores from which Aphrodite rose, the region is dedicated to several sites in her honour. Not only does Paphos boast gorgeous coastal lines and a busy harbour, but also some of the worlds’ most historical ruins can be found here. A history lovers' playground. 
  • Larnaca: For lovers of a lively holiday experience, the bustling city of Larnaca on the Southern coast of Cyprus is lined with idyllic beaches peppered with palm trees. With museums, castles, theatres, music festivals and water sports all being attractions in Larnaca, there is something for everybody. Perhaps visit the Zenobia shipwreck, thought to be one of the best wreck sites in the world. 
  • Nicosia: Nicosia, is the capital of Cyprus, with Northern Nicosia being the major region for arts, culture, education and finance. The city has grown in terms of tourism to make for a thoroughly entertaining trip. Gothic and Ottoman architecture lines the streets while shops, nightlife and malls are widely available to enjoy. It is also home to the legendary walled city of Sarayonu Square.

In Cyprus they were the best good and fair service, the guy who gave us the car (Andreas) was 😃👍

Mark P.

Very helpful with no problems and only a short walk to your car.

I give them 5 stars because of the free upgrade from manual vw up to automatic SUV and they waited me because the flight was delayed. I took the 50euro insurance because I didn't have enough funds on my credit card for the deposit. With the insurance you don't need to make the deposit or the deposit is lower than the requested 500euro and there is no worries about damages. It is important to know the credit card PIN to authorize the transaction. The credit card must be the same one with which the reservation was made. Debit cards are not accepted.

Stephen S.

Spot on ,can't complain, only snag first car won't start flat battery had another car within 10 minutes, good customer service there.

Dennis N.

Great deal via Jet 2. The ladies staging the desk were so friendly and helpful despite the time of night. Highly recommended.

Denise R.

Car was good, okay service overall. However, they gave us weird advice on the first gear. They told us never to leave the car in first gear and never to put it in first gear while driving, which is very weird, especially in a hilly environment.

I asked for a car with the smallest mileage, and they gave me a NEW car! Very good and fast service. My reservation was within non-working hours (on Sunday at 10AM), and from 9AM the manager has been waiting for me to give a car. Took a deposit from the debit card, it worked fine. Worth the money, especially for 1-day rent.

Couldn't really fault them.


Rented a VW Golf which was nice and clean inside and out upon collection and easily accommodated my family of 5 with 4 suitcases plus 5 rucksacks.


Car came with a full tank of petrol and although the trim was basic, it suited us perfectly for a 2 week holiday.


Pick up was easy and drop off was even easier.

At the first moment when we arrived, Vasula and Joanna welcomed us and were very kind and warm. They described us carefully whatever we need in order to start our trip in the best way. Definitely can’t be a better experience, thank you.

Domenico F.

Good customer service and excellent pickup and drop off service directly outside on the upper section of the airport

Adrian B.

Fair prices. Deposit gave back few days after, even though I rented with them for few months. All time treated well. Would come back.

Got a good deal on a Kia Stonic from Paphos airport via Skyscanner. No queue at the desk meant that sorting the car was fast and the chap in the car park had no other customers so we got our car quickly. The condition report was done in person and a copy emailed to me immediately.


Nothing wrong with the car - it handled everything we needed though some roads in Cyprus are more like stoney tracks so one needs to be reasonably confident.


Return was equally easy. Just waiting on my deposit back.


Note to drivers in Cyprus: after 5pm many petrol station shops shut and so fuel is only available via pre-pay. So if you pay for 50EUR but only use 10EU, you will lose the remaining 40EUR. Not the fault of one particular station but a general principle, certainly near Paphos airport. It's not the fault of the attendant. So try to work out how much fuel you need first.

Carl was incredibly helpful and patient

Highly recommend this company for travellers looking for great service and peace of mind

Spyros S.

The night team especially Carl are absolutely great. They have swapped cars for us if ever there's been a problem and the daytime team were so accommodating when we realised we needed an extra hour with the car. Highly recommend. 🤗
