SineNomine wrote:Hi Everyone! Sorry if this is a dull question, but I am travelling to Cyprus for the first time in September to attend a wedding in Coral Bay. Should I book a taxi in advance from Paphos or is it easy to travel there? I will be on my own so don't want to be stranded!! If a taxi is the best solution, can anyone recommend a good company?



The Taxi drivers at Pafos Airport have reputation for over-charging. While the law requires they use the meter, according to many press reprots many seldom do but they charge a fixed price which is sometimes twice the meter price, so you may find the ride into Coral Bay may cost euro 50/60.There are stories that passengers who have insited on using the meter have found themslves thrown of the cab and unable to find another cab at the airport to take them. .

And they wonder why people do not want to use them???

Think about car hire instead: it will give you the freedome to move about while you are here.

Spot on Spot... You can't do CY without a hire-car... and they are very good value.

Driving much the same as GB, in that driving is on the left hand side... well most of the time.

You forgot to mention that the use of flashing lights is optional. :D
