Car rental & taxis
Rent a car
In Paphos a car is not necessary but it is highly recommended. Renting a car is a better option because it will give you flexibility and you will have the following advantages:
- You will be able to go anywhere that you want at any time.
- You will have full flexibility in your schedule.
- You will not be limited to only the places (and the schedule) of the local public transportation.
Furthermore, please note that if you pick up (and/or deliver back) your car at the airport, you will save your taxi transfer costs.
If you decide to rent a car, for your convenience, the websites of the main car rental websites in Cyprus are as follows: –
Also, try the website of your airline company; usually they offer some deals for car rental.
Please always compare similarly equipped cars. Make sure that the car has an air conditioning and that the insurance level of cover is comparable. Some companies list very poor insurance covers so that their price will be cheaper and for this reason they are listed first in the search results; do not fall for this trap, always check the level of insurance cover provided. Furthermore, take note of their fuel policy (e.g. full to empty, full to full, empty to empty etc.). Also make sure that you account for the cost of optional extras.
TIP: If you decide to rent a car we would love to help you in finding a great deal on car rental. We can help you get better prices and terms from smaller local car rental companies. Please note that smaller local companies are cheaper and they provide better service. We can contact on your behalf a number of these smaller car rental companies and ask for their best quote. There’s absolutely no obligation on your part to accept their quotes or engage with them; at a minimum, you will have their quotes which you will be able to use as a baseline when comparing with other online international car rental companies.
Get a taxi
If you are going to use a taxi, we recommend you to book your taxi in advance because it will be slightly cheaper than picking a random taxi from the airport taxi queue.
When you get the taxi from the airport, just show the directions to the taxi driver and he will be able to drive you to your destination. If he cannot easily understand the location of the villas, just tell him that “it is at Dimma Area, at Chlorakas, just 100m before Louis Paphos Breeze Hotel and exactly 300m after turning seawards from the Latin Parish Hall”. The actual address is 10 Dimma street, 8220 Chloraka. If in doubt, ask him to call us at +357 99625039.
TIP: If you require it, we can arrange for a taxi to pick you up from the Airport and drive you to the villa. The taxi driver will wait for you just after the arrivals gate, holding a sign with your name on it. He will know your destination in advance. We are only using professional, fully licensed and insured taxi companies. If you require this service, please do not hesitate to let us know.
