Tips for driving in Cyprus

Driving in Cyprus is very similar to all other European countries, the biggest difference being you drive on the left side. As such you overtake on the right except when the car in front is turning to the right, and at intersections give way to your right You may notice a more relaxed attitude to regulations from some drivers, but that doesn't mean it is not worth being in the know on the important rules of the road. Cyprus has three main highways that all merge together and which will take you to all big cities. The A1 is the longest route running from Nicosia, the capital, to Paphos. Make sure to slow down before turning off any of these major highways. Some highway exits are rather short while others end in 90 degree turns.
