Customer questions about Ercan Airport car hire

Hi, I have enquired re Hyundai Getz can you tell me what insurance cover is available I am 56 years of age with unblemished driving record

Hi, all of our rentals include basic insurance that covers you to drive the car legally, however as with any car insurance policy there is an excess to pay, you can see what the insurance excess is for each car (it varies by supplier / car type) under terms and conditions at the quote stage. We offer an excess protection policy that insures your rental excess, or you can take a policy direct from the supplier (usually more expensive), both are of course optional.

Ercan Airport Car Hire - Did You Know?

  • The airport doesn’t officially exist as it’s in a country that’s only recognised by Turkey
  • To fly to Ercan Airport, all flights have to land in Turkey before continuing their journey, extending the flight time
  • The airport is a renovation and reconstruction of the old Nicosia Airport, built by the British and Cyprus’ only commercial airport before 1974
  • The growing popularity of the country as a tourist destination, as well as a home for expatriates, has spawned an expansion plan designed to double capacity.
  • Familiar car rental agents like Avis, Europcar and Budget are not at Ercan Airport, instead you'll find local suppliers such as Cyprus Elite Rentals, Pacific Rent A Car and Trip Rent A Car.

Ercan Airport Mini Guide

Why Choose Ercan International Airport Over Larnaca?
Whilst many travellers choose to fly into Larnaca because flights are quicker and cheaper, you’ll still have possibly a two hour drive to your resort. Whilst you’ll pay a little more to fly to Ercan International Airport, you’ll be on the beach more quickly.

I’ve Heard Flights are Problematic
From the UK, Onur Air and budget carrier Pegasus fly from Glasgow and Stansted respectively. Both land in Turkey before continuing the flight into Ercan, usually Izmir or Dalaman. This extends the flight time by around an hour.

What is the Airport Like?
The airport is reasonably modern but a little shabby – the North doesn’t have much money, and it can be a little crowded and chaotic on times. There are plans to modernise it and expand the facilities including building a brand new terminal but a lot depends on raising the finance.

What Facilities Are There at the Airport?
There are several car hire desks at the airport, mainly local companies, and just one duty free outlet. Various stalls and tiny shops sell cheap local souvenirs and Turkish delight. There’s a currency exchange booth and a post box for last minute cards.

Latest Update from Ercan Airport:

21/02/17 – The new terminal for Ercan airport is due to be ready for passengers in 2018. Construction of the renovated airport is continuing.

Some travellers to the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus choose to fly to Larnaca Airport,  hiring a car there and driving across the border but it’s far more convenient to fly into Ercan, despite the longer flight time, and collect your pre-booked Ercan International Airport hire car when you arrive.

We guarantee to supply you with the style of car you want and make sure it’s a quality vehicle. Waiting until you arrive before purchasing your car rental at Ercan International Airport can often mean getting an old, unreliable vehicle and having to pay a lot for it.

You’ll also be assured that we will have searched out the best price for the best quality vehicles.
