Travelling to Limassol
Bringing a foreign vehicle to Cyprus is permitted for a duration of three months,
provided that the registration is valid. In order transport your vehicle to the
country, you will need to make use of car ferries that run between Limassol and
ports in Israel and Greece, namely Athens, Rhodes, Patmos and Crete. Both standard
and international driver's licenses are valid in Cyprus.
There is currently no railway system in Cyprus itself, although there was in
the past. However, it is possible to reach the island from the UK or continental
Europe using a combination of British or European rail networks and ferry services.
Alternatively, the Cypriot bus system is extensive and connects most towns and
villages on the island.
There are international airports in the towns of Larnaca and Paphos. Both of
these receive flights from destinations in Europe and the Middle East. From
either town, you will need to continue your journey to Limassol by road.
Limassol is a major Cypriot port, and is the point of departure for ferries
leaving to Israel and to parts of Greece, including Athens, Patmos, Crete and
Rhodes. Unfortunately, direct ferries to the Greek Islands are limited, so generally
you will need to connect in Athens or another Greek city.
