I want to rent a car in Paphos, Cyprus. My friend will pay everything but I want to be the main driver. Is that possible?
Yes, that is possible. You should book as follow: If he has a credit card make the reservation in his name online, you can use any card to do this. Then add yourself as the additional driver.
OK, understood. Also, we would like to travel to the Northern part of Cyprus, is that allowed?
No. Cross Border Rentals to Northern Cyprus are not allowed. Should you Cross the Border all insurances lose their validity. You may see stories on the Internet where people buy temporary insurance at the border. These are also not valid!
