One credit card is required for a standard rental, whilst up to two credit cards may be required for luxury cars. Please make sure that the credit card has enough available funds to cover the security deposit. The amount of which is noted within the terms and conditions of your car hire voucher. The deposit will be released back onto your credit card when you return the vehicle, and it is confirmed that it is in the same condition as when it left. Debit cards are not accepted for deposit purposes, but all major credit cards are – this include Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Diners.


    What insurance do I need for my car rental in Larnaca?

    All quotes provided when hiring a car in Larnaca include the basic legal protection for Cyprus. Basic legal cover includes Liability Insurance, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection (TP). It is important to note that these basic insurances do not cover everything. If you’d like to be fully protected against the unexpected, we would recommend taking out Full Protection Cover – this will cover damage to glass, vehicle roof, mirrors, towing costs, misfueling, administration costs and damage or loss of car keys.

    At location you may be offered additional insurances by the local supplier. These are optional and for the most part, if you have already taken out the Full Protection Cover, it will not be needed. Optional insurances that are offered at location include; Personal Effects Insurance (PEI), Personal Accident Insurance (PAI), Roadside Assistance, and many more. Read our full car hire coverage options to gain a greater understanding.

    Larnaca Travel Guide

    Larnaca is located in Cyprus, a sun-kissed island in the Mediterranean Sea. With amazing beaches, plenty of history and beautiful landscapes, Cyprus is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the region. Its vibrant but yet laid back towns and cities are packed with quaint coffee houses, splendid restaurants and entertaining bars. The following is just a few recommendations that we have put together for anyone visiting Cyprus.

    Best day trips with my car rental in Larnaca

    The island has reasonable connections throughout, so driving your car hire from Larnaca to other parts of Cyprus shouldn’t be an issue. The nearby resort town of Protaras has a beautiful family-friendly atmosphere, but head to Voroklini if you’re into wildlife and bird watching. This area is not only famous for flamingos, but also for being the only place in Cyprus where Turkish and Greek Cypriots coexist together. Consider the following day trips whilst visiting this amazing island:

    Ayia Napa: Long regarded as the central party area of Cyprus, Ayia Napa is a world renowned party town. Attracting a large influx of revellers between the months of May and September, Ayia Napa has an abundance of clubs, bars and entertainment establishments to enjoy. Every clubbers dream destination, the town itself also has pristine beaches and crystal clear warm waters to bath in.

    Kornos: Kornos is a rural village located only 25 minutes’ drive from Larnaca. Its claim to fame is the sheer abundance of pottery and clay producing establishments dating back centuries. The village produces beautiful pieces of clay, pots, bowls and various ornaments for purchase. During your visit you can admire the art of clay making first-hand, attend workshops and even be given the opportunity to purchase a traditional clay oven.

    Lefkara: This delightful town is famous for embroidery and lace production, which dates back to the 4th Century. Initially made popular by Leonardo Di Vinci – upon one of his visits, he purchased some lace to donate to the Duomo di Milano. This particular lace pattern has since been known as Da Vinci Pattern and has become extremely sought after. Due to its popularity, Lefkara was awarded the UNESCO World Heritage status.

    Stavrovouni: Regarded as the holiest place in Cyprus, the site of Stavrovouni hosts a church that is believed to contain a piece of Jesus’s cross, together with a piece of rope and a nail used in the crucifixion. These artefacts are believed to have been transported over by the mother of the Byzantine Emperor Constantine the Great. The site also contains a Greek Orthodox Monastery where a collection of religious objects originating from the holy land are stored.

    What to do in Larnaca

    Offering an abundance of entertainment, culture, history and tourist activities – the port city of Larnaca is located on the Mediterranean coastline. The island of Cyprus is one of the most visited places in Europe, with its sandy beaches and warm crystal clear waters – weddings are the most popular events, with many deciding to simplify their holiday with a rental car in Larnaca. Mackensire Beach, Finikoudes Beach, Salt Lake and Faros Beach are some of the more popular locations in Cyprus, and with our free additional driver offers getting there shouldn’t be much of a problem. We would recommend visiting some of the following places during your stay:

    • Larnaca Archaeological Museum: Providing an interesting glimpse into Larnaca’s past, its archaeological museum contains numerous artefacts and exhibitions. The building itself only consists of two large rooms, however, it is well kept and set out. The grounds contain some interesting historical pieces. The museum has since seen some renovations, so we do advise contacting them before your visit to confirm they’re open.

    • Larnaca Marina: Located right in the heart of the city, Larnaca Marina is packed with beautiful sailing boats and yachts. Near the marina you’ll also find plenty of excellent restaurants, coffee houses and stores to enjoy. Why not opt for a sailing excursion to Ayia Napa, Limassol or spend the night out on the water. After your excursion either enjoy the vibrant atmosphere in a local bar or some great cuisine in one of the restaurants – followed by a leisurely walk along the pier.

    • Hala Sultan Tekke: Located a short 10 minutes’ drive from Larnaca is the Hala Sultan Tekke Mosque. A historical Islamic monument we would recommend visiting this serene and tranquil place during sunset. The mosque is located on the shores of a salt lake, and it is surrounded by a lush forest. If you’re looking to get away from the hype of city activity, then a visit here will surely relax your senses. Great for photos, the mosque is the burial site of the 6th Century Propher Umm Haram.

    • Zenobia Shipwreck: Cyprus is extremely popular for underwater diving and snorkelling. None more popular, is the diving at the Zenobia Shipwreck just off the Cypriot coastline. The Zenobia went down in 1980, taking with it 104 fully loaded articulated lorry’s. Vastly considered one of the best diving locations in the world, either join a diving tour or take a glass bottomed boat cruise.

    • Larnaca Castle: This medieval 12th Century castle was constructed to protect the port of Larnaca and southern Cyprus. Throughout its existence it has been used as a fort, artillery station, prison and museum. A small fee is charged to visitors, but then you are able to wander through its castle rooms and grounds. Occasionally open-air shows are played out within the castle grounds. From its walls you’ll also gain exceptional views over the port and city.
