Cyprus’s Road Rules?

Cyprus’s Road Rules?

First off, the Cypriots drive on the left just like in the U.K. so you won't need to worry about going up the wrong side of the road or meeting someone coming the opposite way at a roundabout. Driving in Cyprus also means that the steering wheel is where it belongs too, in front of the driver not over in front of the passenger seat! The road signs are all in English too which is real helpful if you need to actually find your way around the Island. That's the other good news, Cyprus of course is an Island so unless you work real hard at it you shouldn't be able to get yourself lost. At worst however you could end up on the Turkish side which is not advisable if you are driving in Cyprus using a hire car. Most Cyprus car rental companies forbid the use of their cars on the North of the Island and you would be uninsured anyway.

The Island has a modern motorway network linking all the major coastal resorts and main towns including the capital Nicosia which is incidentally the last divided city in the world. The main highways into all the larger towns or holiday resorts are dual carriageways and even the minor roads are pretty well maintained too. Caution should be exercised on some of the minor coastal back roads and outlying village routes which can be a little trickier. In fact in places it is hard to discern where the carriageway ends and the footpath starts especially with the disruption that building work can cause. On the whole however the roads are as good if not better than many of those in the U.K so driving in Cyprus should be a breeze.
