limassolbusstopThere are no trains in Cyprus so the only way to travel is by using buses, taxis or service-taxis.

The buses don’t run late during the evening so if you want to travel around it’s a good idea to hire a car online before you arrive.

You can collect the car at the airport when you arrive and then you’ll have the freedom to go where you want without worrying about taxis.

  • If you’re being collected, find out the exact time and place the taxi driver will collect you and make sure they know your name.
  • Prices range from 7 euros each way and pick-ups are from an allocated distance within the town or city. This of course adds time onto the journey so allow around 30 minutes (sometimes shorter), before the journey begins.
