The easiest way to start your time in Larnaca is by picking up a rental car directly at the Larnaca International Airport.

Exit the airport and drive to Larnaca via the B4.
In Larnaca, like in the UK, you drive on the left-hand side of the road. This means that the steering wheel is also on the other side of the car: the right. As in most European countries, stick shifts are still commonly used, so drivers who are neither familiar with driving on the left nor with a stick shift should invest some extra money to rent an automatic car. It will help you focus on the road, plus you won’t have to navigate the stick shift with your left hand. Be extra careful at roundabouts and intersections, as everything is the other way around.
Larnaca has a well-maintained and pleasant road system in most places but, as the city is old, there are many narrow lanes, especially towards the Old Town. There are also many one-way lanes, which makes navigating the city a bit of a challenge a first, but if you rent a satnav with the car, it should be no problem to reach all the dream destinations you had in mind.

Despite Cyprus having many street regulations that are similar to the UK, speed limits are given in kilometers per hour like in continental Europe. In built-up areas, there is a maximum speed limit of 50 km/h (31 mph), but in some places it can also be 30 km/h (18 mph). On rural roads, usually up to 80 km/h (49 mph) is permitted, while 100 km/h (62 mph) is allowed on highways. Also remember there is a minimum speed of 60 km/h (37 mph) on highways.
Gas is more expensive in Cyprus than in the US and is measured in liters, not in gallons (so it is more to pay for less content, as one liter is ¼ gallon). The average price in Larnaca for gas lies around €1.25, which is $1.41 per liter and $5.64 per gallon. You won’t be wasting too much gas on the small island of Cyprus, however, so, despite the prices, your gas bill likely won’t add up to be outrageously high.
Many hotels in Larnaca include a parking spot with the hotel room, so check that beforehand and avoid the hassle of finding a parking space yourself. However, Larnaca has a good parking infrastructure and offers municipal parking lots like the one in Pavlou Valsamaki or the Finikoudes Multipark. On-street parking is mostly metered, so check the sign for details.
