Car rental in Nicosia


If you already have a trusted rental company in mind, we recommend that you go to the website and check if Cyprus is included in the list of countries. With a high degree of probability, it will be there.

Advantages of direct rental: many companies have loyalty programs, thanks to which you can start saving on rental after a while. There are also promotions for accumulating airline miles when booking with a specific company.

Cons: the choice of models is limited only by the specific company's fleet, and the cost is often higher than through search aggregators.

Top car rental companies:

  • Alamo
  • Thrifty
  • Budget
  • Avis
  • Enterprise
  • Hertz
  • Europcar
  • Sixt


It is more convenient to book through search aggregators than through a specific company — small players appear in the search, which offer a more pleasant price tag. In addition, you have a fleet of several rental companies, so there is a larger choice, even if you compare it with a large player in the car rental business.

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

After the results are displayed, you need to go to the car card, read the detailed terms and conditions, fill in the data, and make a prepayment. The principal amount is paid on the spot when signing the contract.

Aggregators differ from each other in the number of rental companies, the interface and overall ease of use, some additional incentive programs and other "buns".

How do I pay my fines?

If you are stopped by a police officer in Nicosia or any other place in Cyprus, they will issue a fine — the police do not take any money on the spot. You may also receive fines from the cameras for violating the speed limit. In most cases, the penalties will be deducted from your deposit, but depending on the rental company or the rental period, in some cases you can pay them yourself online. Here's how to do it.
