Paphos Airport Guide

Car Hire

Paphos International Airport is a favourite arrivals hub for summer holidaymakers heading for popular western Cyprus beach resorts such as Limassol, Coral Bay and the town of Paphos itself. Second only in size to Larnaca International Airport, it’s a revamped, single-terminal facility that is linked with Paphos and Limassol towns by bus and taxi. The complex lies four miles from Paphos town centre, a comfortable drive of around 15 minutes, dependent on traffic conditions, with car hire in Paphos International Airport.

Who to Book With
Self-drive on Cyprus is one of the most popular ways to get around, with advance reservations in the holiday season a must in order to ensure the availability of your chosen vehicle. Companies at the airport with desk in the Arrivals hall include Sixt, Budget and Europcar, with Cypriot firms Astra and Petsas also represented. Most car hire firms based here do not allow travel into Turkish Northern Cyprus.

Need to Know Essentials
The following documents should be presented at vehicle collection:

- A valid UK or EU driving licence, or an International Driving Permit
- The credit card used to make the reservation
- A passport or EU ID card confirming your ID
- Confirmation of booking

For more info read our FAQ's.

Cyprus drives on the left, making self-drive for UK visitors a pleasant experience. Care should be taken, however, as Cypriot drivers are casual about the rules of the road. Major roads are in good condition, but minor roads can be narrow, twisting and potholed. In rural areas, traffic is sparse, but rush hour in the large towns and resorts sees congestion and is best avoided by visitors. Speed limits are 62mph on fast roads and 31mph in built-up areas. Headlights must be used from half an hour before sunrise and sunset, and seatbelts must be worn at all times. During the high summer season, parking in the major towns is tricky, with choosing a hotel with a large car park the best solution. Petrol stations open 24 hours, with attendants on duty during daytime hours and card payments normally accepted.

See our guide to Cyprus for more information on driving here.


The fastest access to all points on the island from the airport is by self-drive, with most holiday destinations set along fast, dual-carriageway roads or motorways. Public transport to Paphos and other nearby resort destinations is by bus, the cheapest way to travel, comparatively expensive taxis or prearranged hotel shuttle buses.

A number of taxi companies serve the airport from the rank outside the terminal, but rates are not standardised or regulated so overcharging is common. A rate for the journey should be agreed with the driver before departure or a pre-booked taxi should be used. For the under 10-minute journey to Paphos town, rates are reasonable, but for trips to island attractions, the costs soon mount up. Rates increase by one-third between midnight and 05:00.

Taxi prices:
Paphos International Airport to Paphos town centre is about £20
Paphos International Airport to Coral Bay is about £30
Paphos International Airport to Limassol is about £55
Paphos International Airport to Larnaca is about £80

Paphos bus services to and from the airport are provided by OSYPA Ltd, with timetables linking with flight arrivals. April through November sees buses every hour from 07:30 to 00:30 from a stop outside the Arrivals hall to Paphos town centre, its rail station and harbour. The journey takes 30 minutes, dependent on traffic, and costs around £1. For passengers heading to Limassol, an express bus service is offered, with the two buses daily giving a much cheaper option than taxi travel.


The airport’s single terminal, revamped and extended in 2008, serves just fewer than three million passengers a year, with the majority arriving between May and October. Budget carriers form the bulk of its airlines, with the UK especially well-served by flights from London’s Gatwick, Stansted and Luton airports, as well as flights from a plethora of regional airports including Edinburgh, Manchester and East Midlands. EasyJet, Ryanair, Jet2 and Monarch, along with charter carriers Thomas Cook and Thomson, are the major providers of seasonal routes.

Pick-up/drop-off and short-term parking spaces are available, both of which are set within easy walking distance of the terminal. Parking is charged on a scale at less than £1 for up to 20 minutes to £8.50 for between 12 and 24 hours’ parking. Payment is by machines at the entrances to the car two car parks.

Several free Wi-Fi internet access hot spots are found in the terminal, covering most areasm including the executive lounge.

What most people want to know

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.
