prices

Postby marbro » Mon Jan 19, 2009 7:02 pm

hello everyone after reading topics on your informative (and sometimes very argumentative) forum i have plucked up the courage to register to ask a few questions about my favorite holiday destination, me and my wife have visited about 5 times now allways to paphos,and this year we are thinking of booking to go to ayia napa,a private rental apartment off nissi ave called rosies retreat, but all the reports we are getting are that the prices of food and drink have gone through the roof!!, one couple we spoke to said they went on a day trip stoped off to have a meal and where charged 18 euro for 2 jacket potatoes with salad :o ,and another saying he was charged 6 euro for a whisky,i know some of the 5* hotels can charge these prices because they are a bit more select but please dont tell me these prices are typical of the ordinary bars that line the streets,if this is so then we will probably have to change our holiday destination

The last time I ate out was on the 8th of this month. I dined in a fairly run of the mill tourist restaurant along the sea front in Larnaca. I had a cheese omlette, extra chips, a small bottle of water and a cup of tea. This cost 9 euro. I don't know if this helps to give you an idea.

Prices in euro have not changed much over the past six months or so; the fall in the value of the pound against the euro means that everything has become more expensive for British visitors, unfortunately.

One of the good things about Cyprus is that restaurants are legally required to diplay their prices outside. In any of the main tourist areas there are bargains to be had if you look around and compare prices before selecting where to eat.

thanks for that tim, i could quite happily go out for an evening meal and eat that and not expensive at all, i think people start scaremongering when things like the credit crunch hits,thats why i always visit sites like this because you are the people that know,thankyou :D

Three apparently accept it in Limassol, so by the standards of Agia Napa that's pretty good going!

hi tim,i hav the utmost respect for anyone trying to make a go of a new buisness idea and i hope it goes well for z4 its a catch 22 situation you have to have enough establishments who will sign up to the deal to get the punters interested,what i have to work out is how would it work for me, if i was hiring a car eating out every night at the places that accept the card and using the same company to take me on trips then saving ten persent would make sence,but if i was only using it a couple of times then it would not
