When renting a car with SIXT, you’re given several options from which to choose. If you’re hoping to travel in style and need a chic ride for your weekend rental, opt for a convertible, a luxury vehicle or one of our exotic models. If you’re in a large group and need a long-term rental for people and luggage, book a passenger van, minivan or SUV. If you’ll be town-hopping, rent a sedan, or even a compact or economy car.

Best places to visit in Cyprus

  • Nicosia: The beautiful city of Nicosia is the capital of Cyprus and sits at the center of the island. Having been inhabited for more than 4,500 years, the city is teeming with history and fascinating architectural relics. Wander through the streets of the Nicosia Old Town by day, then spend the evening at the Merit Lefkosa Hotel & Casino and feel centuries worth of remarkable growth all in one day. 
  • Ayia Napa: For visitors coming to Cyprus for the sun and the sand, Ayia Napa has some of the most stunning beaches on the island and there is no shortage of things to do. Charter a catamaran for a day trip or book a sunset cruise. Or, if you’re hoping to take a closer look at the natural surroundings, try scuba diving or explore the caves. There are even nearby vineyards offering wine tasting. 
  • Paphos: Located in the southwest of the island, Paphos is one of the more popular places to visit in Cyprus. The city is a UNESO World Heritage Site known for its many ruins of great historic and architectural value. There are also a host of beautiful beaches right on the city's doorstep. In the southwest of the Paphos district you'll find ‘Petra tou Romiou’ – a large geological formation known as Aphrodite's birthplace.

Summer in Cyprus

With more than 400 miles of coastline, Cyprus is one of the largest islands in the Mediterranean, which means it is chock-full of opportunities for a seaside adventure. While vacationing here in the summer, try scuba diving, snorkeling, renting a speed boat or joining a party cruise. If you’re interested in exploring the land, visitors can book safaris—either by jeep or buggy. For travelers seeking more tranquil activities, stroll through one of the many charming towns along the shore.

Spot on ,can't complain, only snag first car won't start flat battery had another car within 10 minutes, good customer service there.

Dennis N.

Great deal via Jet 2. The ladies staging the desk were so friendly and helpful despite the time of night. Highly recommended.

Denise R.

Car was good, okay service overall. However, they gave us weird advice on the first gear. They told us never to leave the car in first gear and never to put it in first gear while driving, which is very weird, especially in a hilly environment.

I asked for a car with the smallest mileage, and they gave me a NEW car! Very good and fast service. My reservation was within non-working hours (on Sunday at 10AM), and from 9AM the manager has been waiting for me to give a car. Took a deposit from the debit card, it worked fine. Worth the money, especially for 1-day rent.

Couldn't really fault them.


Rented a VW Golf which was nice and clean inside and out upon collection and easily accommodated my family of 5 with 4 suitcases plus 5 rucksacks.


Car came with a full tank of petrol and although the trim was basic, it suited us perfectly for a 2 week holiday.


Pick up was easy and drop off was even easier.

At the first moment when we arrived, Vasula and Joanna welcomed us and were very kind and warm. They described us carefully whatever we need in order to start our trip in the best way. Definitely can’t be a better experience, thank you.

Domenico F.

Good customer service and excellent pickup and drop off service directly outside on the upper section of the airport

Adrian B.

Fair prices. Deposit gave back few days after, even though I rented with them for few months. All time treated well. Would come back.

Stephen G.

Got a good deal on a Kia Stonic from Paphos airport via Skyscanner. No queue at the desk meant that sorting the car was fast and the chap in the car park had no other customers so we got our car quickly. The condition report was done in person and a copy emailed to me immediately.


Nothing wrong with the car - it handled everything we needed though some roads in Cyprus are more like stoney tracks so one needs to be reasonably confident.


Return was equally easy. Just waiting on my deposit back.


Note to drivers in Cyprus: after 5pm many petrol station shops shut and so fuel is only available via pre-pay. So if you pay for 50EUR but only use 10EU, you will lose the remaining 40EUR. Not the fault of one particular station but a general principle, certainly near Paphos airport. It's not the fault of the attendant. So try to work out how much fuel you need first.

Carl was incredibly helpful and patient

Highly recommend this company for travellers looking for great service and peace of mind

Spyros S.

The night team especially Carl are absolutely great. They have swapped cars for us if ever there's been a problem and the daytime team were so accommodating when we realised we needed an extra hour with the car. Highly recommend. 🤗

We rent the car with Flizzr, serviced by Sixt, with full coverage. On arrival Sixt desk questioned the coverage explaining that Flizzr insurance was more of a thing between us and them, all very foggy. We were offered an upgrade for 50€, which we accepted (auto shift, air conditioning) and a long series of insurance coverings, which we denied. The rent was smooth and the car very good. Check out process went smooth, with nearly no questions.

Lorenzo A.

Big thumb up for the Team of Sixt Limassol!

Very helpful, super accommodating and willing to find the best solution for your needs.

Definitely recommend if you have to rent here in town.


Quick service, pick up location next to the airport. I feel price was a bit overpriced but it is a free market

Cookie 2.

Professional. Great cars.

Omer Mohammed (.

I had a good experience, perhaps I have the corporate agreement with them, but the staff seem oaky, a little rough around the edges.. But that can be down to the type of day they are having, in my experience all good!

Leonardo L.

Smooth pick up and drop off. No pushy selling of upgrades and add ons at pick up (it was 2am to be fair). Car was in good condition and tank very full (in fact I think the petrol station at the airport routinely overfills cars).

Mark M.

We got good and welcoming service. To pick-up the car took just a minute.

The prices are reasonable and the car was satisfactory.

Big C.

Easy process and friendly staff.
