I am intending to travel from Paphos region to Kyrenia within the next month and am trying to establish the best way of getting there. Can anyone tell me whether there is a Taxi service in the North, who can drive to Paphos and take me to Kyrenia. Also how much would you expect the cost to be and what is the estimated journey time between Paphos to Kyrenia ? Your help appreciated. I am also trying to establish whether I can park my hire car in the South near to a crossing, then walk over and pick up a North Cyprus hire car/get a taxi. I keep hearing about getting additional insurance on your hire car in the South to goto the North but all the firms I have checked with (many) just do not allow this. Many Thanks.



Many Thanks

I wouldn't bother with hiring in the south and leaving it then picking another one up!



Just get a cab.

You CAN hire a car in the south and drive it into North Cyprus, no problem at all. You simply buy additional insurance at the border when you cross, which is only valid in North Cyprus. Thus, you are now insured on both sides of the border!



What you CANNOT do is the reverse, which is take a North Cyprus hire car into the south.



By the time you have paid for a taxi return trip from Paphos to Nicosia, let alone Kyrenia, you will be paying at least as much (if not more) than for a week's car hire in Cyprus anyway!



http://www.cyprus-car.com has great value car hire, which includes a lot of free extras, such as second named driver and kid's car seats. They meet you with your car at Paphos airport, so you can be off down the motorway while others are still waiting for their taxi! Cars tend to be newer and better maintained than other 'cheap' firms, and they have brand new Rav4s on offer if you want to drive the lesser-known roads of the Five Finger Mountains.



if you are concerned about CWD excesses, try http://www.insurance4carhire.com, which, quote, "Covers you not only for the total amount of Excess for which you are liable if the car is damaged or stolen, but also for damage to the roof and undercarriage of the car, and windows and tyres." Get the worldwide policy and you are covered for any hire car, anywhere more than 150 miles from your UK base, for a year.

Thanks for the info. Is the insurance you pay at the crossing fully comprehensive or is it 3rd party only ? Also how long roughly should I expect to take to drive from Paphos to Kyrenia ?

The insurance would be third party,and i think you would be looking at 2.5 hrs to travel from paphos.Cant you fly to larnaca or better still ercan.Welcome to the forum,

Paul.

You are giving out misleading information, the insurance you get at the border is only 3rd party whilst the insurance you have mentioned is only CDW, if you are hiring a car for say more than 14-21 days in any one year it is worth buying that rather than the hire company's own CDW.



Remember though that if the hire car insurance is only 3rd party and the accident is your fault there will be no payout. However, the policy excess (typically 300 or so) would be paid out. That will not go very far if the car is a write off!!!

We did Kyrenia to paphos in 2 hours 10 minutes but it was at 3am in the morning so no traffic on the road. Take it you live in the north and the only reasonably priced flights are to paphos? Personally if you can't get good prices Manchester to Ercan or Larnaca I think its just as easy to drive to Stanstead or Luton rather than south to north in Cyprus. Good luck and safe journey whatever route you take.

just been told by Easycar(europcar) that "you can't drive through the border - ooo you can't do that"

"yes i can" i said

The chap on the phone responded with a very unusual and surprising statement about signage at the border which i won't go into.... (well maybe one day i will).

Anyhoo the upshot of it is they don't allow their cars through. Just thought I'd let everyone know not to bother.

Anyone know how much a taxi fare would be?
