Long Term Rentals all over Cyprus

Cyprus Taxis

Taxis are plentiful but always get a price before you get in the taxi. They run 24 hours in all towns. Taxis can be booked by phone or be hired from their base station. Urban taxis are provided with taximeters and charging commences upon the entrance of a passenger. Unmetered taxis can be found, but you are strongly advised to agree the fare with the driver before you commence the journey.

Be aware that it is common practice for taxi drivers to beep their horn at you if they see you walking along the street. Every pedestrian that may be a tourist will get honked at. By all means hail them if you want the service, but ignore them if you don't want to use them.

Taxi drivers may also offer to take you to 'clubs' if you are alone. These 'clubs' are not the type of 'club' you may want to go to!

One can travel around Cyprus either by bus, by taxi or by private car. There are no trains in Cyprus.

Visitors are requested to confirm the itineraries and prices with the appropriate companies as these are subject to alterations.
