Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean, and, at the same time, it is a state with a rather complex political system. 60% of the island is controlled by the Cretan government led by ethnic Greeks, and 38% is governed by the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, whose legitimacy is recognized only by Turkey. Nevertheless, the whole island is a hospitable place, welcoming over 3 million tourists annually. The most popular resorts on the island are Larnaca, Limassol, Ayia Napa, Paphos, and Protaras. If you're coming to Cyprus, we recommend visiting the Alamos reserve, with Baths of Aphrodite, the camel park, and the Hala Sultan Tekke Mosque in Larnaca as well as the ancient city of Amathus, Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates, the monastery of Ayia Napa, and the Cape Greco.
You can use public transport to travel around the island. Mostly it includes buses, which are very slow and quite uncomfortable in Cyprus. So it is better to use taxi here, however, we advise you to be careful. How much does a taxi in Cyprus cost? The most important thing you should know about the price of taxi is that fares differ a lot in Northern and Southern parts of the country. Moreover, if you decide to hail a taxi, try to negotiate the price in advance and bargain - it is acceptable here. There are several types of mandatory payments in Cyprus, such as fare for the trip to the airport, special night tariff, additional fare if you order a taxi on weekend or a holiday, an extra charge for luggage and so on.
The only way to avoid all these intricacies of tariffs is to order a transfer in Crete at a fixed price. Go to the Kiwitaxi website to find out the price of transfer for the route in Cyprus you need, and if it suits you, book a car online in a few clicks. Here you can order a transfer to the airport, hotel, or an individual transfer to other cities and destinations. The price will not change after the booking regardless of traffic jams, by-passes, and toll motorways. In addition, our driver will meet you with a nameplate at the airport or hotel, help you with your luggage and make your trip as comfortable as possible, because all cars in our partner's car parks are no more than seven years old.
