How it Works

Once you've made your booking, we'll send you an email confirmation. This will contain your booking reference, the name of your car hire provider as well as the address/location of the car hire pick up point.

A word about insurance

Here at Holiday Extras, our mission is to make your trip as hassle-free as possible. Our total protection insurance for your Cyprus rental car does just that. We constantly compare and price-check all our policies to ensure we bring the best cover and great savings. All our policies include the following cover:

  • Damage and theft excess
  • Damage protection for all mechanical and exterior of the car
  • Cover for any immobilisation, admin and towing charges
  • Free cancellation and changes up to 48 hours before travel

When you arrive - picking up your Cyprus hire car

If you're collecting your hire car from Larnaca or Paphos airports, a member of the provider's team will meet you at the appropriate car hire desk in the Arrivals hall. They'll spend a few minutes running through the paperwork for the car rental agreement with you. There will be some forms for you to fill in before they hand over the keys to your rental car.

As part of the handover process, they will go through the fuel policy with you. Your confirmation will also detail whether there is any mileage limit in your agreement.

Please ensure you are carrying all of the following with you when you pick up your hire car:

  • Printed email confirmation for each of your journeys
  • A full driving licence
  • Credit card in the lead driver's name, with the full deposit amount available
  • A valid DVLA code
  • A valid passport

On your return

We wouldn't want to wish your holiday away, but details of where to return your Cyprus rental car to when it's time to come home will be detailed on your booking confirmation. Before you hand the vehicle back, a member of the car hire provider's team will just give it a once over before you head off.

Driving in Cyprus**

You'll be pleased to know that driving on Cyprus' roads won't be too dissimilar to the UK - they drive on the left hand side of the road in right hand drive vehicles. It is, of course, far sunnier than the British Isles!

The road network in Cyprus is modern and well maintained, allowing easy access between towns and attractions across the island.

There are few local laws and customs that you may find useful when driving in Cyprus. This is a rough guide and should be used in conjunction with the terms and conditions stipulated by your car hire company, as well as your own research about driving laws in Cyprus.

  • Right hand drive - drive on the left-hand side of the road, overtake on the right.
  • Minimum age to hire - be at least 18. Under 25's may have to pay a young driver surcharge.
  • Seatbelt - Cypriot law requires all car occupants to wear a seatbelt front and back.
  • Children under 1.5m - must wear a suitable safety belt
  • Mobile phones - it is illegal to use a mobile phone while driving, unless using a handsfree kit or earphones.

Speed limits

  • Major Highways - 100kph/62mph
  • Inter urban - 65kph/40mph
  • Rural roads - 65kph/40mph
  • Built up areas - 50kph/31mph

Drinking and driving

It is prohibited to drive if the levels of alcohol in the blood or breath are above the admissible limit. The admissible limit in the blood is 50 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood (BAC 0.5 mg/ml). The admissible limit in breath is up to 22 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of exhaled air.

It is important to note that drinking alcohol and then driving may invalidate your car rental insurance, irrespective of local drink driving laws. Check your policy for full details.

Driving licence

Important Information - Changes to the UK Driving Licence

A UK driving licence will allow you to drive in Cyprus, and you will not need an IDP - International Driving Permit.

Passport - You may also be required to carry another form of personal ID with you while driving.

**This information should be considered as a broad overview of things to remember when hiring a car. It is therefore very important that you read the rental terms and conditions and associated policies for your own specific policy as well as doing your own research into the motoring laws of the country in which you will be driving.
