Driving in South Cyprus

Please adhere to the following guidelines to drive the rented car in South Cyprus:

  1. Obtain the necessary permission paper from us, priced at £45.00. This paper permits you to drive the car from the Turkish border to the Greek border.

  2. Present the permission paper to the officer at the Turkish border.

  3. After crossing the Turkish border, you will reach the Greek border. At this point, you must show your passports and acquire Greek Insurance and Road Tax, costing 25 Euros (subject to change), required for driving in South Cyprus.

  4. Purchase the insurance and Road Tax from the Greek Border offices.

  5. Commence driving in South Cyprus.

Please note that the Greek offices are exclusively located on the Metehan Border in Nicosia, and their operating hours are limited to weekdays until 14:00, with closures during Greek national holidays. Ensure you plan your holiday accordingly as failure to acquire the necessary paperwork will prevent you from driving in South Cyprus. To check if the Greek offices are open, you can contact the Greek insurance office at +357-22-454700 or the local police at +357 22802838. Bellapais Rent a Car will not be held liable if you are unable to cross the border for any reason.

Once the car crosses into South Cyprus, it will no longer be fully insured by Bellapais Rent a Car. You must purchase insurance at the Greek Border, which will only provide 3rd Party coverage. Please read the insurance terms carefully before purchasing it at the border.
