We are coming to North Cyprus in December, and wonder if anyone can recommend a company, to pick us up from Ercan airport and hire us a car for a week. We are looking for a small car to hire and feel we have been paying too much on previous holidays. Thank you

Whoever you hire from, be warned, CHECK THE TYRES!

I'm still here in TRNC with hire car. One tyre kept deflating slowly. I thought it was dust in the valve and went into the garage every other day to pump it up. One morning it was flat. Took it off and the tyre was shredded with a crack almost all around the circumference. Went to the hire co. to complain. Usual shrug of the shoulders, it's your responsibility. I pointed out that the tyre was obviously in a dangerous condition when I hired the car a week before. Again a shrug. I had driven down the by-pass the previous day at 50mph. God knows what would have happened if it had blown out. I still had to pay for a PART WORN tyre to be fitted.

Take a torch and get them to drive it slowly while you check each tyre. Sounds daft, but your life could depend on it.

I have tried a few and i find Ismail at A1 Rent-A-Car opposite the Altinkaya Hotel very good.

He will arrange pick up and drop for a very reasonable rate each way (for example, he only charges 25- from Larnaca to Girne so ask about Ercan) if you rent a car for 7 days (has very good rates incl CDW etc)

Send him an email

I'm usually out in Kyrenia every other month and he has never let me down. Reliable + Professional.

There's no doubt in my mind that the two stand-outs are A-One and Pacific. They are both reliable and efficient, with good quality near-new cars at good rates. It would pay you to email both and compare, as neither charge you to leave the car at Ercan for you.

I can't believe message 5! I had a blowout in an A-One car and changed the tyre myself. When I went to the office, they drove me around to their garage and fixed a new tyre on the car immediately, and certainly didn't charge me anything.

Sooo many posts on this if you check search.

Personally I've been very happy with Bird rentaCar in the last 2-3 years although their transfer costs from Larnaca have gone up a bit lately.

The cars have a few scratches etc but are good value and verry reliable.

Usually the cheapest on the island if u take into account taxes & insurance.

Every time we visit, usually 2-3 times a year, we use Pacific and find their service excellent. If you book a car online they will deliver it to Ercan airport for you to pick up. Free of charge, and then you can just leave it back at the airport when you leave. They will even put fuel in the car for you arriving and you just pay them cash for that when picking the car up. We have booked a small car, (Hyundai getz, or equivalent) for december at just under 100 pounds for a week.

Excellent value, excellent service.

You can find number of car rental companies in North Cyprus and it is really tough to select a genuine one. The one that I usually approach for car hire in Europe is Pointcarhire. They offer nice deals with lots of facilities at quite nominal prices.
