Car rental in Cyprus
To rent a car in Cyprus, the driver must be at least 25 years old and not older than 70 years. Driving experience must be at least three years. However, in some private rental companies, cars can also be provided to an 18-year-old driver, if he has a two-year driving experience. But they may ask for a premium to the price. Here you need a credit card, which will block about 200-300 euros. You also need a driver's license and passport. As for the rights, domestic ones are also suitable, but an IDP is preferable.
When it comes to renting a car at seaside resorts, the cost will be different. In Larnaca, for example, it will be lower, and in Ayia Napa - higher, although these places are quite close to each other..
When you are traveling on your own, you can ask to drive your car directly to the airport. But if you are flying to have a rest on a voucher, and even with a paid transfer, then the car will have to be ordered directly at the resort itself. Sometimes it turns out that in this case, two days are paid as for three.
Cyprus beaches and attractions
Cyprus is a typical beach destination. It has no unique «chips», at the same time, it does without major disadvantages. Sometimes only «bite» prices. The island itself has a rather mild climate, good service in hotels, and the beaches shine with cleanliness, having many «blue flags». Tours to Cyprus have won well-deserved popularity among tourists.
Near Paphos there is a place where, according to an old legend, Aphrodite was having fun with her lover, the god Dionysus, and with other men from the pantheon of gods. You can only get to this bathhouse on foot. The water in this bath, according to legend, gives a person eternal youth. You will not be able to check or refute this statement, since swimming is prohibited here. Just now, hands and feet can be moistened. But a path leads from the bath to the Fountain of Love. And these hiking trails are completely free. The visit to the lake and the Fontana will be free of charge. And you can spend three hours or even more here..
There is a different attraction in Ayia Napa. This is a water park. It looks like a separate small country. It is sustained in the style of ancient Greek myths and legends. There is both a Trojan horse and Atlantis. Everyone is frightened by the terrible Hydra. It is unrealistic to get bored here, but it is very easy to burn out in the sun, you need to hide in the shade or in the water so that this does not happen.
