The Value of Booking Advance Airport Taxi Transfers During Cyprus Summer Season!
Ever since the closure of the Cyprus Government Railway in December 1951, no train system has ever operated on the island, which means travel is either by bus or by taxi. For more than 3.6 million annual visitors to the island - many of whom are likely to have arrived via the three main airports - the rush to find airport taxi transfers looks to grow ever more frantic as each season passes.
Paphos International Airport – the second largest airport, after Larnaca - is located 6.5 km (4 ml) southeast of the popular coastal town. While there is a regular bus service from the airport to Paphos Harbour station, there are only limited services to and from Paphos, Polis and other destinations. For late arrival holidaymakers or business visitors on tight schedules it’s important to be aware of the B6 Main road and the E603 secondary road, which often become heavily congested.
The value of a Paphos airport taxi, pre-booked, waiting at the arrivals gate - and who knows how to quickly get you to your destination - cannot be underestimated at high season!
Figures suddenly jumped to a record-breaking 3.1 million
Visitor numbers to Cyprus of around 2.4 million had been steady over a 10 – 12 year period until in 2016, the figures suddenly jumped to a record-breaking 3.1 million and then surged again to 3.6 in 2017. At the same time, the number of taxis had also increased during the same period, from around 1,860 to more than 1,930 estimated to be currently operating across the island, according to the European Traffic Police Network – TISPOL, 2016.
Official Republic of Cyprus statistics show that visitors numbers for the first quarter of 2018 are up by nearly 25 per cent during the same period in 2017. The tourist season at the main Cyprus resorts will shortly getting into full swing. Holidaymakers seeking sun, sea and relaxation after the recent long, cold winter in the UK and northern Europe should also think about booking their taxi transfer Paphos to hotel well in advance.
