Car rental in Paphos

Being in the main resort city in the eastern part of Cyprus, we recommend renting a car and exploring the island in a more relaxed manner, as there are many interesting places around Paphos that are extremely difficult to reach by public transport, including UNESCO World Heritage sites!

Car rental in Paphos directly from rental companies

If you already have a trusted rental company in mind, we recommend visiting their website to see if Cyprus is listed among the countries. Most likely, it will be there, along with Paphos — alongside Limassol and Larnaca, it is a popular rental location.

Advantages of renting directly:

  • loyalty programs that allow you to start saving on rentals after some time;
  • bonus miles with airlines when booking with a specific company.

Disadvantages of renting directly:

  • limited choice of models only from the specific company's fleet,
  • cost is usually higher than through search aggregators (not considering discounts and special offers).

Top car rental companies:

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

Car rental in Paphos through aggregators

Booking through search aggregators is often more convenient than through a specific company — smaller players appear in the search offering more attractive prices. Additionally, you have access to the fleets of multiple rental companies, providing a wider selection even compared to a large renter.

The process is similar to hotel search engines. You need to enter the city, in our case Paphos, start and end dates of the rental, pick-up time, and possibly apply filters during the search query stage.

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

Aggregators differ in the number of rental companies, user interface, overall ease of use, some additional incentive programs, and other perks.

Car rental in Paphos through Localrent

Localrent is a popular aggregator with Russian roots and a limited set of countries, partnering with small rental companies. Cyprus is listed among the countries, and Paphos is among the cities. An obvious advantage is that you can make a prepayment on the website even with a Russian card. The lightning bolt icon indicates that the car is available for instant booking, while the shield icon indicates that the deposit is fully refundable if canceled a day or more before the rental start.

Car Rental at Paphos Airport

It makes sense to rent a car at Paphos Airport right after arrival if you plan to visit another city and explore the island in general. Depending on the location, transfer costs range from 50 to 150 euros, equivalent to two days to a week of car rental.

Directly from Rental Companies

Representatives of global car rental leaders, as well as major local players, have offices at Paphos Airport, which you will see as soon as you exit the arrival zone with your luggage. You just need to approach, inquire about the availability and cost of cars, and sign the contract — a manager will escort you to the vehicle.

Through Aggregators

When choosing the start of your rental, specifically select "Paphos Airport," or the corresponding option after entering the city — then you will see cars available for rent directly at the airport. These may include companies with the aforementioned office at the airport, as well as nearby small firms that will deliver the car to your flight. To do this, when booking on the website, a field will appear during contact information entry stage where you can provide your flight number and expected arrival time.
