Car rental in Larnaca directly from rental companies

If you already have a trusted rental company in mind, we recommend visiting their website and checking if Cyprus is listed among the countries. There's a high probability it will be. In this case, Larnaca, as the main rental point, will definitely be included.

Pros of direct rental:

  • loyalty programs, which can lead to savings on rentals over time;
  • opportunities to accumulate miles with airlines when booking with certain firms;

Cons of direct rental:

  • the choice of models is limited to the specific company's fleet;
  • the cost is often higher than through search aggregators (excluding discounts and special offers).

Car rental in Larnaca through aggregators

Booking through search aggregators is often more convenient than through a specific firm - you get offers from smaller players who offer more attractive pricing. Moreover, you have a fleet of several rental firms at your disposal, meaning a wider choice, even compared to a larger renter.

The principle is similar to hotel search engines. You need to enter the city or airport, start and end dates of the rental, start time, and also apply various filters at the search query stage.

After the results are displayed, you need to visit the car's page, read the detailed terms, fill in your details, and make a prepayment. The main amount is paid on-site when signing the contract.

Aggregators differ from each other in the number of rental companies, interface, and overall ease of use, as well as some additional incentive programs and other extra options.

Car Rental at Larnaca Airport

It makes sense to rent a car immediately upon arrival at Larnaca Airport if you are planning to visit another city and travel around the island. For instance, a transfer would cost at least 60 euros, which is equivalent to two days of car rental.

Directly at Rental Companies

Representatives of global car rental leaders, as well as major local players, have offices at the airport, which you will see as soon as you exit the arrival zone with your luggage. All you need to do is approach, inquire about the availability and cost of cars, and sign a contract — the manager will guide you to the car.

Through Aggregators

When choosing the start of the rental, select specifically 'Larnaca Airport', and then you will see cars available for rent directly at the airport. These can be companies with the aforementioned office at the airport, or nearby small firms that will deliver the car to your flight. For this, when making a reservation on the website, a special field will appear at the stage of filling in contact details to enter your flight number and expected arrival time.
