You need to buy insurance at border and also on arrival into Cyprus. You also need vehicle registration document in your name, not a copy. You also need to buy an entry visa at border. Takes about 1 hour for all.



If bringing stuff in from UK then bring receipts or remove from origional boxes and so they look used not new.

Hello wanderer,



I haven't really gone into it yet, it is now on my list along with a million other things but now you've mentioned it I will see if I can find someone. I assumed (wrongly it seemed) that our existing breakdown cover was ok

Hi

Whilst having a night out in Riaz's (Happy Valley) Catalkoy, we had a discussion with someone who had driven over and he said it cost him a fortune in back handers at every stage/country you go through (Even getting done for speeding whilst he was parked!) He said it cost him about 1000 in back handers on top of the petrol.

Someone else suggested driving through Italy to Brindinsky (I think that is how it is spelt) and getting the ferry over.

Hi Katymackem,



I think it is Brindisi you mean and not Brindinsky. Brindisi is in southern Italy and Brindinsky could be anywhere in eastern europe.

I had to pay a back hander driving through Serbia, but i found the hardest border crossing was Bulgaria/Turkey. They will stamp in your passport that you entered by car and put in reg. number. If your going to drive back make sure you go through same border crossing when leaving Turkey. I didnt , deceided on different route and that caused me no end of trouble. Ended up sleeping in car in (no mans land) area between Bulgaria and Turkey to wait for an official who started work in the morning (it was about 10pm). But all in all great road trip. You just need Vehical registration Document (log book), Insurance details, Driving License and Passport. You will arrange any paperwork at the point of entry into Turkey.
