Car rental

by PeteG

Can anyone recommend a decent but reasonably priced car rental firm in Paphos please? I can get a list of them from google, but would prefer to use a firm that comes recommended.

Thanks very much.

I was there in 2007 - depending on whereabouts you are staying (or if the hire firm deliver and collect from your hotel/appt) there are several of the branded reputable ones about.
We used Europcar I think but would have been happy with any of the "proper" firms like Hertz, Avis, SixT or Budget.
Watch out that the firm you pick doesn't only have a place in the airport - although you may want that - if you want one in Town. Paphos airport is not a short walk away from Paphos!
Then again - WHICH Paphos? Paphos Harbour? Tomb-of-The-Kings? Kato Paphos? Corel Bay?
See what I mean? The car hire firm's own web sites list the rental offices - Google map them to make sure they are convenient or the few pounds you save on hire may be taken up with a taxi ride to and from the office!

I am not sure if yiu have found a suitable car as yet but here is a link that may help you. I have hired a Rav4 from this man for 2 weeks and his rates include drop off and pick up from hotel or airport. He has a small fleet but the cost is just £25 per day and includes insurance for named drivers at no extra cost.

Thanks for your help on this one, much appreciated.

Re: Car rental in Paphos

Would recommend a local firm once there; you'll find that they are friendlier with smaller, neat fleets & reasonable prices for the most part. However, If you wish to do it online, last time some friends flown in from the UK, used a portal with a lot of choice in car rental and transport "www.cyprushire.com". Have also seen it online, and looks a decently prof place for prebooking a car or transfer.



Travel Tips for Paphos


by cazz38

If you want to go on any excursions there is a shop in Paphos Harbour just before you get to the Fort that does really good trips,we all used this company and its really good value for money and much cheaper than the reps in the hotel charge.

Kourion - about 15km from Paphos

by globetrott

Kourion is just about 15km east from Paphos and you will see there some really excellent mosaiques dating back to the Roman empire. Kourion is quite a large village consisting of some good remains of several buildings with some outstanding mosaiques, so you should calculate about 2-3 hours for this sight, that you might do from Paphos as a halfdaytrip in combination with Pissouri, the Sanctuari of Apollo Hylates and Kolossi.


by leics

Of course, there are beautiful hibiscus and bougainvillea in gardens, and orange and lemon trees along the streets, but the wild flowers of Cyprus still survive in parts of concreted Pafos. And they are beautiful.

For me, coming from the grey and dead British winter, finding wild anemones in bloom on Christmas Day was really rather special. Smelling wild herbs, and seeing rosemary bushes in full bloom abuzz with a myriad of bees, really brought home the difference in climate.

Cyprus must be very beautful in Spring.

The best desserts in Paphos

by anna-m about Vienna cafe

Being a great lover of desserts, I tried them out in virtually each and one of numerous Paphides cafeterias, and I can solemnly swear that the Vienna desserts were by far the best!
They also do food, drinks and coffees (and pretty well, too), but the desserts were unparallel!
Vienna looks out to a rather busy street, which can be a drawback if you want to have your cappucino in peace, but a huge garden (with some more secluded corners) and highly professional srevice really make up for that. It is so hard for me to choose, but if I had to, I'd say ANYTHING from their dessert stand
