Car rental in Ayia Napa through aggregators

Booking through search aggregators is often more convenient than through a specific company — smaller players appear in the search offering more competitive prices. Plus, you have a selection of cars from several rental companies, giving you more choices compared to a large rental provider.

The process is similar to hotel search engines. You need to enter the city — in our case, Ayia Napa (possibly in Latin characters), rental start and end dates, start time, and apply various filters during the search query stage.

After receiving the results, you need to view the car details, read the terms and conditions, provide your information, and make a prepayment. The main amount is paid on-site when signing the contract.

Aggregators differ in the number of rental companies, interface, overall user-friendliness, additional incentive programs, and other advantages over competitors.

Car rental in Ayia Napa via Localrent

Localrent — a popular aggregator with Russian roots and a limited range of countries, cooperating with small rental companies. Cyprus is listed as a country, and Ayia Napa is also in the city list. An obvious advantage is that you can make a prepayment through the website even with a Russian card. The lightning icon indicates that the car is available for instant booking, and the shield icon indicates that the advance payment is fully refundable if canceled a day or more before the rental start date.
