    • Spectacle prices & upper driving age limit

      Cyprus May 21, 2015 at 11:00 AM

      Googled upper age limits for driving in Cyprus but to no avail - plenty of info on minimum age limits. Would be driving on a full UK licence and happy to get International Driving permit - does anyone please know the upper age limit for driving?

      Second question: are the rumours that buying prescription spectacles cheaper in Cyprus dependant on the exchange rate at the time - also heard that India was very cheap - I am well aware of the risks of buying overseas but I'm happy to give it a go

      All info much appreciated

      Hi everyone, new here!

      A group of us are visiting Paphos in June and are staying in a self catering villa. I was just wondering if anyone has been there recently and could help with costs etc. I'm just wondering what we can expect to pay for things such as meals out, costs of drinks whilst out and cost of wines/spirits etc in supermarkets.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

      I need to take an early bus from Limassol to Kalavasos. The route planner I've found on a website says, "Depart from Limassol Port (Limassol) Bus Stop and get on bus route Intercity Nicosia - Limassol towards Dionisiou Solomou Square (Nicosia)...." But it doesn't give an address of this bus stop. I need to find a hotel near to this bus stop? Does anyone know if Le Village Hotel or Harmony Bay Hotel is close to this bus stop. If not, any recommendation. Thanks.

    • Itinery N+S Cyprus 2,5 weeks with kids

      Cyprus Mar 3, 2015 at 3:45 AM

      Hi guys!

      Could I please check with you if my planned itinery makes sense?

      We are travelling with 2 kids (1x toddler of 2 and 1x baby of *just* 1). Goal for the trip is to recover a bit after a few hectic years with the kids (broken nights and so), so we would like to have some time to relax (sun, beach). However, we wish to see some of Cyprus as well. We wish to start slow, so we booked a holiday village (resort) in Paphos for the first week (something we never did before, we are used to hostels...). Due to the kids, we wish not to change accommodation too often (preferably max. 4 times or so). We have a rental-car for the whole trip.

      My questions:
      Does the itinery below seem logical?
      Does it make sense to rent another car in the North for what we plan to do?
      Is Kyrenia a good place to stay to explore the North?
      Are we too long in the Paphos / Polis area? Should we stay longer in the East instead?

      Day 1: Arrive Paphos, check into resort. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 2: Chill (at resort + beach). Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 3: Chill (at resort + beach). Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 4: Chill (at resort + beach). Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 5: Day-trip Paphos. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 6: Day-trip Paphos area / coast above Paphos. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 7: Day-trip Paphos area / coast above Paphos. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 8: Check out, drive to Polis area. Night: Polis.
      Day 9: Polis (beach / drive along coast West and East of Polis). Night: Polis.
      Day 10: Check out, drive to Nicosia. Park car, rent another one in the North, arrive at Kyrenia. Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 11: Explore villages in the area. Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 12: Chill (at hotel and beach). Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 13: Daytrip to Famagusta. Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 14: Drive back to Nicosia, change rental car, continue to Kalavasos. Found an amazing B&B there.
      Day 15: Chill (at B&B). Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 16:Governor's Beach. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 17: Day-trip to Lanarca. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 18: Day-trip to Troodos Nat. Park. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 19: Spare day. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 20: Depart in the morning (from Paphos).

      Thanks guys!!

    • Taking a rental car from South to North - contract disallows it

      Cyprus Mar 2, 2015 at 8:43 AM

      Hi,

      I am planning a 2,5 week trip to Cyprus in April, and noticed that almost no car rental company will allow to take the car into the North, not even the larger Avis/Hertz/Europcar ones. I only found one (after I checked around 20!!), and that one was really expensive and seemed dodgy.

      As I have to buy insurance at the border anyways, what would happen if I were to take the car into the North?

      Reason for me not to higher a "second car" for the North period (however silly this sounds), is that I am planning to enter in the far West (coming from Polis), and planning to go back to the South in Nicosia.

      Thanks for the advise whether I could risk being a little naughty or should REALLY stick to the contract.

      Robin.

      Cyprus Feb 2, 2015 at 7:53 AM

      I would like to find a homestay or B&B for my stay in Cyprus, I like traditional house and would like to have some cultural experience, I don't want to check into beach hotels. Grateful if someone could provide some information or websites/links that I could source information from. I have looked up some websites but the accommodation I could find were mostly hotels and apartments. I found some houses for rent but will have to rent the whole house, too big for me and I will not be able to mingle with locals.
