Transportation in Cyprus
Getting arround Cyprus
One of the most common ways for getting arround the island is by car. There are many car hire companies arround and of course large companies from the airport like Avis etc. We highly recommend Phivos from Phelena car hire in Protaras. He can arrange a variety of cars for you and really looks after his customers. If you are looking for competitive prices, high quality cars and a family business please check him out. Alternatively we are happy to arrange car hire from him for you.
Bike hire or quad bike
side by sides / quad bikes / buggies are well known to the area as a way of getting arround. You can hire them from most areas, Protaras, Pernera, Kapparis and Ayia Napa will all have a hire / rental shop.
Cyprus by bus
There are 3 types of buses that run locally, Interciry buses usually do not have as many stops and will connect you from different cities such Paralimni to Larnaca by bus. City busses will usually be for iner town areas and can include school routes, area to area busses like Ayia Napa to Protaras for example. The third type of bus would be the tourist busses which would be from companies like EMAN / RED BUS TOUR who deal with tours and day trips.
In the area the busses may not run as frequently as other countries but we do have a good bus system and there are buses that can bring you from Larnaca airport to Paralimni / Protaras etc. You are going to need to plan a little but the Cyprus by Bus website has all the information you will neeed.
Taxis & mini buses
airport transfers are brilliant and easy. We work with amazing people to get you from the airport to the villas / apartments and are happy to book this for you. Prices range from 50euros to 150euros depending on the group size or time of arrival. Dont forget when you are in the area you can ring for the local taxi to take you where you need to go. Athena is amazing from LA taxis and tours. She will also take care of your wedding car hire needs as well.
