I have been asked by many of you from where to rent a car when coming on holiday on the Island. Most of you are experienced travelers, so you know already what company to choose from the big ones. But for those of you who want to rent a car from a local business, I had to ask for help also, because I never had to rent a car on the island.
So, after I asked on Facebook Groups of people that love this place, I came up with this list. Here you will find recommendations from people that traveled many times in Cyprus and that rent a car here. Most of the recommendations are for Paphos region and for Protaras/Ayia Napa.
If you know of other good places from where to rent a car, please do tell me and I will add it to this list here.
I hope the list will help you the best choice for you and that you will have fun visiting the Island.

🚩 And maybe you want some Tips on how we drive in Cyprus
🌞 When you rent a car, ask exactly what is covered by the insurance. Usually, if you make a scratch, you might have to pay.
🌞If you have the bad luck of being involved in a car accident, DO NOT move the car. Call the office and they will tell you what you have to do.
🌞 If you find the car damaged in the parking, DO NOT MOVE it. Call the office and they will call the insurance company. IF you move the car, you will pay for the damage.
🌞 If you decide to cross the border, you have to pay extra 25 euros insurance. And you have in mind that you are basically on your own.
🚩🚩🚩 Very important INFO from those who know better than me what will happen if you will have an accident in Katehomena.
”Just remember most higher car companies will not allow you to cross the border onto the North and even those that will allow you to do it tell you is done at your own risk the insurance you purchase at the border to be able to drive on the North is third party only in your name solely and has nothing to do with the hire car company which means you are fully financially liable for that vehicle if anything happens at all the insurance you get when you hire the car to drive on the south will not cover you in any way shape or form once you cross the border.
This also includes breakdown recovery understand the risks of hiring a car and crossing the border.”
