hi there,
We are staying in pafos from 8/5/2011 to 22/5/2011
we would like to have a trip to northern cyprus ie Kyrenia. What options are there for us. i gather from this forum insurance would cost a lot to go just for the day trip in a hire car.Is an organised trip a better idea than going one self?

I don't think there are organized tours from the free part of Cyprus to the part which is illegally occupied by Turkish troops. You will have to arrange this yourself.

Several care hire firms will allow trips into the north but you will need to take out third-party insurance after you cross over. It's about 35 euros but you may get fully comp for around 70 euros.

Also there are organised coach tours into the north from the south arranged by travel companies in the RoC. They often visit Kyrenia, Famagusta and other places.

I wasn't aware you could buy fully comp. insurance at the Green Line. I've never been offered it, and I would have thought the insurance companies would want to get more money out of you!

There are plenty of organised tour form the 'free' to the 'occupied' areas if you want to take up that option, but be warned many have very tight schedules, and you may not get as much free time in places you want to see.

If you're in the west of the island, don't forget there now a crossing at Liminitis which will savfe you time.
