Paphos International Airport is one of the larger airports in Cyprus, even though it handles only 1.7 million passengers per annum, and serves the western side of the country, with the towns of Paphos, Coral Bay and Limassol. The airport is known by its code of PFO, and is a hub for the popular airline carrier of Ryanair. Airport passengers have a number of useful facilities at their disposal, including car rental companies such as Dollar Paphos International Airport. Any passenger who meets the minimum car hire requirements can have their own private vehicle in which to explore the beautiful area of Paphos, with its numerous natural and man-made attractions. Historical attractions in the area are plentiful as well.
Passengers will enter the single terminal building of this airport once their flight has landed, and collect their luggage items from one of three conveyor belts. The terminal has sections for arriving and departing passengers and has recently been renovated. It now has the capacity to handle up to 2.7 million passengers per annum. Buses and taxis are available for travel into the city, however, a rented car is considered as more convenient. Most people in Paphos drive their own vehicles as the public transport services are not very extensive, and visitors ensure that they have a rented car for their transport. The car rental counters of Dollar are found in the arrivals area, and are open twenty-four hours on most days of the year, however, their hours on public holidays may vary.
In Cyprus, the primary renter of a vehicle will need to be present at the rental counters with a driving license and a major credit card. Foreign renters will often require an International Driving Permit, which can be obtained from the authorities in their home country. Credit cards usually accepted include American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Diners Club. Any additional drivers listed on the rental contract will also need to be present to collect the vehicle, and should meet the same requirements as the primary renter. Vehicles will be hired with a full tank of fuel. Fuel is usually purchased by the customer for longer rental periods, but shorter rentals may just require that the vehicle is returned full.
A customer of Dollar will also need to be at least 21 years of age. However, persons younger than 25 are subject to higher rental rates, and may not be able to hire all vehicle categories. A few other restrictions regarding payment of the rental may also apply to younger drivers, however, a debit card cannot be used by any age of renter at this location.
Besides high quality vehicles, the Paphos International Airport car hire companies hire child seats, satellite navigation systems and hand controls for disabled drivers. Dollar hand controls are free of charge, but all other items of equipment will cost a few extra Euro when arranged from Paphos Airport. Hand controls require an earlier reservation as well. While child seats and GPS units are available from over the rental counters, passengers may ensure their availability by an earlier reservation.
Vehicles in the Mini category from Dollar are similar to the Kia Picanto, and those found in the Economy category include the Ford Fiesta. The Kia Picanto can seat four passengers while the Ford Fiesta can seat five, however, neither have a very large capacity for luggage. They are best hired by small families, couples or individual travellers. Additional cars that seat five include the Ford Fusion, Ford Focus and Ford Mondeo. The Ford Focus is available with a manual or automatic transmission. Larger SUVs can be hired from Dollar as well, similar to the Toyota Rush. The Toyota Rush has room for seven passengers and two luggage items.
Passengers who are not returning to this rental location should arrange a Dollar one way hire. From Paphos International Airport, one way hires are available for most vehicle categories, and may usually be driven to all parts of the island. They can then be returned to the location specified when the reservation was made. Keep in mind, however, that hired cars may often not be taken off the island on a ferry.
Customers with a corporate rental account at Dollar can hire vehicles for up to eleven months with the Multi-Month Rental program. Reservations for longer rentals can easily be made by calling a dedicated 800#, and then the rental contract will be completed upon arrival at the airport. Vehicles need not be returned until the contract has expired, and charges for the rental will be billed each month to the customer’s credit card or Dollar billing account. Dollar has a comprehensive loyalty program as well, that is available for occasional and frequent renters. Free rental days can even be earned with the Dollar Rental Rewards program.
Further car hire details are available from the Paphos International Airport car rental companies.
