UK to Italy,ferry to Greece,ferry to Limassol. One Company is Grimaldis but I believe there are other routes you can take.
Ask a shipping company about regulations at port of entry.
My advice would be to RO_RO your vehicle and fly out to meet it,far safer and a hell of a lot cheaper.You would need an agent to act for you with the paperwork so look on the internet for one.

If you 'Google' R.A.C. Route Planner, you will receive all the information (and more) that you require, you can print off the maps and schedules and the details are most helpful.

Good Luck with your trip. :wink:

Salamis lines, two ships RO/RO per week from Piraeus to Limassol. If you load your car you can travel along with it, but be prepared for merchant ship conditions, not cruising style comfort. You get your own coffee in the galley, food is served crew style and the stairs are not for the physically challenged!

Louis cruise ship pricess Marissa also carries cars and passengers but I do not know their schedules.
