Hi all, I have been looking around a bit but couldn't find so far an answer to my following question. Next month I'll be visiting Cyprus for the 1st time. During my stay, I will visit both the North (Kyrenia area) and the East (Paphos Area) of Cyprus. I am looking to hire a car, but lots of companies in the East and South do NOT allow you to take the car to the North. Is there a company which has no problems with car rental for ALL over the isle ? I would not like to have to book 2 seperate cars (1 for the North 1st week and 1 for the East next week).
Anybody has ideas about this ? Many thanks ahead !
Ah just remembered the shop name - PLATOON used to thisvi.
I am going to stay at the Hylatio Village resort in Pissouri via Olympic hols. I have added car hire to the package to be picked up from Olympic. Can anyone help with some questions? Did the price of the car hire go up due to the staff offering excess waivers on the insurance? anyother payments you needed to pay up front that I should be aware of?
I apologise if this is the wrong part of the forum.
Thanks all in advance.

Used Petsas in the past but they want 145E for 2/3 days hire along with circa 100e for the full tank no doubt. Or do you always get stung for hiring for a couple of days as they want you to hire by the week?
I've only had a brief look on the site, but you could check out...............
They are in Paphos, and a typical example is........... a VW Polo, pick up Mon 23 Sept 2013, return Wed 25 Sept 2013 = £53.24. But then you have to take into account.....pick up full, return empty, question is, will you use a full tank in 2 days ? although they do some cars, pick up full return full.
I need to check out car hire for Protaras in Sept, although I've always waited and found that it's cheaper to enquire when I get there, as they will haggle despite the advertised prices.
Avoid unless No Other options are available: 1. I hired a Ford Focus or Similar for a week - they don't have those at all, they tried to give me a Suzuki Swift , in what world are those in the same category ? 2. Then They gave me and old 110000 KM Car , only after I complained.3. I had a flat Tire with the car; it turns out the equipment in the car , is not fit to replace the tire, they put in the wrong wrench ( I solved this with the help of locals, without the help of the company) , imagine what would have happened if the flat tire happened in a remote rural area.4. The tire was flat because it was worn-out (not due to anything we did) although I did purchase insurance , they claimed I should replace the tire on my own.5. Just finding this took more then half a day where I was promised help, and was moved from person to person, while their customer service did everything except solving my problem; so except all of the above I spend half a day from my trip just getting false promises and being hassled.To sum up my experience - exactly what you don't want in a car hire company : * Old/small cars - expect to get a smaller/older car then you asked for * Can't rely on them with help in case you have a problem * Unreliable in what they tell you on phone
- Unreliable in the equipment in the car
