Pros: Everyone was very helpfulCons: The rental reservation was performed through carrentals.com. This Alamo had no records of the reservation. All of it ended well because they honored the agreement after seeing my receipt, but it could be a problem in other cases.

sixt gave convertible car for 115$ per day that pCons: The car was in terrible mechanical conditions and I had no choice since it was prepaid and I was very short in time. The price was higher than average but car was simply not appropriate to be rented. The convertible roof hanged during open and close. Just before going back to the airport it hanged last time and it took me about 2 hours to finally close it. As I result I returned the car 2 hours later and then these guys tried to change me full additional day. It was funny and I said them that they can try, but I will dispute with citi credit department any additional charge, Conclusion - in the LCA choose another rental car provider, I have never seen such terrible service in US and even not in Asia ...
Cons: We bought an international insurance upfront (rentalcover), which had much better conditions rather than a standard insurance offered by the rental company. When I showed it to the representative they asked to buy their insurance anyway, or we had to deposit 3000 Euros instead of 600. I read the terms and conditions very carefully and couldn’t find anything like that. So we ended up by purchasing an additional insurance from the company which was just an additional charge. I would avoid renting the car from this company in the future.
Pros: Obviously not ! I was cheated by AVIS staff , first they mentioned car isnt at all insured and we paid extra , and then they gave us a less fuel while on the documents they have mentioned a full tank , during delivery they charged us 30 euro for the fuelCons: More transparency as well as cooperation from there staff
Discover the hidden gems of Cyprus conveniently on your own four wheels. Explore the harbor or the huge Larnaca Salt Lake, as well as the many historical and cultural attractions this city has to offer, including the Archeological Museum or the Art Gallery. Gain some major flexibility and pick up a rental car when you arrive in the sun-kissed city, as the attractions and shops are quite spread out and best reached by car.
The easiest way to start your time in Larnaca is by picking up a rental car directly at the Larnaca International Airport. The five agencies offering vehicles for all tastes include Avis, Sixt, and Hertz and can be found in the arrivals hall right after the Baggage Claim area. Exit the airport and drive to Larnaca via the B4.
In Larnaca, like in the UK, you drive on the left-hand side of the road. This means that the steering wheel is also on the other side of the car: the right. As in most European countries, stick shifts are still commonly used, so drivers who are neither familiar with driving on the left nor with a stick shift should invest some extra money to rent an automatic car. It will help you focus on the road, plus you won’t have to navigate the stick shift with your left hand. Be extra careful at roundabouts and intersections, as everything is the other way around.
Larnaca has a well-maintained and pleasant road system in most places but, as the city is old, there are many narrow lanes, especially towards the Old Town. There are also many one-way lanes, which makes navigating the city a bit of a challenge a first, but if you rent a satnav with the car, it should be no problem to reach all the dream destinations you had in mind.

Despite Cyprus having many street regulations that are similar to the UK, speed limits are given in kilometers per hour like in continental Europe. In built-up areas, there is a maximum speed limit of 50 km/h (31 mph), but in some places it can also be 30 km/h (18 mph). On rural roads, usually up to 80 km/h (49 mph) is permitted, while 100 km/h (62 mph) is allowed on highways. Also remember there is a minimum speed of 60 km/h (37 mph) on highways.
Gas is more expensive in Cyprus than in the US and is measured in liters, not in gallons (so it is more to pay for less content, as one liter is ¼ gallon). The average price in Larnaca for gas lies around €1.25, which is $1.41 per liter and $5.64 per gallon. You won’t be wasting too much gas on the small island of Cyprus, however, so, despite the prices, your gas bill likely won’t add up to be outrageously high.
Many hotels in Larnaca include a parking spot with the hotel room, so check that beforehand and avoid the hassle of finding a parking space yourself. However, Larnaca has a good parking infrastructure and offers municipal parking lots like the one in Pavlou Valsamaki or the Finikoudes Multipark. On-street parking is mostly metered, so check the sign for details.
