Rent a Car in North Cyprus

By far the best way for the visitor to travel is self-drive hire car. All you need is a UK or international driving licence, and vehicles can be picked up and returned at Ercan Airport to avoid taxi transfer costs, which amount to about TL70 one-way to Girne. The road network is generally good and is being regularly improved, with an increasing number of dual carriageways between the main towns. Car-hire rates are cheap. Traffic drives on the left – a hangover from British administration – though it’s worth keeping watch for the occasional rebellious exception! Most cars are right-hand drive, though you will also see left-hand drive vehicles, imported or visiting from Turkey.

Hiring a car in Cyprus is definitely advisable to be able to explore this beautiful Mediterranean Island.  There is so much history with places to go such as Salamis, Girne Castle, St Hilarion Castle, or simply drive across the mountain top and take in the fresh air and spectacular views, there is so much to see in Cyprus

To hire a car you need to be over 25 years old and hold a driving licence with 12 months left running.  As in the UK, North Cyprus drives on the left-hand side on the road. At this time you are not allowed unable to take a hire car from the North of Cyprus to the South of Cyprus, but it is possible to rent a car from the South of Cyprus and to cross the border to the North. Please note that you will need to purchase car insurance at the border. All hire cars carry red ID plates. Below is a list of companies that offer rental cars and most will also sort out your airport transfer from Ercan or a South Cyprus airport
