Larnaca Airport Taxi Driver first to see the  lighter mornings and early bird visitors on a minibreak

Larnaca Airport Taxi Driver first to see the lighter mornings – and early bird visitors on a minibreak!

Four weeks until Daylight Savings Time begins once again in Cyprus and the clocks go back one hour (29 March). As you might expect, a Larnaca airport taxi driver would be one of the first to see the lighter mornings as they wait for their pre-booked passengers at the Arrivals Gate. Not only business passengers but also early bird visitors on a minibreak or sightseeing tour before the Easter holidays brings the first wave of this season’s tourists.

Spring may be just around the corner but daytime temperatures are already nudging 17-18C and will soon be hitting 23-25C once the clocks go back. The warm but still comfortable temperatures is just one of the reasons why many travellers to Cyprus say “off-season” can be the best time to visit the island, and often enjoying reduced air fares and hotel prices.

Larnaca Airport Taxi often booked to visit key beauty spots and historical sites

Another big advantage is the absence of crowds. In March 2019, more than 105,000 visitors arrived on Cyprus compared to the 550,000 plus during each of the summer months. As the daylight hours grow longer, a Larnaca taxi can be often booked to not only collect passengers from the main airports of Larnaca or Paphos but also to drive their passengers to the islands’ key beauty spots and historical / cultural sites.

How refreshing to be able to take photos / selfies without a crowd blocking the view whether at a museum, church, archaeological site, mountain village, vineyard - or even a coastal beach resort. It’s certainly not unusual to see people taking to the waters in March around Limassol, Larnaca and Ayia Napa as the sea temperature of the Mediterranean reaches a pleasant 19C. It’s also refreshing to more peacefully relax and enjoy the local bars and restaurants without the long queues for a table.

Intercity Cyprus taxi transfers for unlimited transport between all destinations

Sightseeing trips by taxi at this time of the year can be more fun too. You and your Cyprus taxi driver will almost certainly have the roads almost to yourselves, However, it’s important to ensure that you do book the right taxi service for travelling around the island. There are three different types of taxi services, each restricted by their license to where they can operate.

An Intracity taxi is only allowed to offer their hire service and operate within the town and district area specified on their licence. A Rural taxi can only operate outside the borders of an urban traffic area and may not pick up passengers from airports or seaports, unless they have the approved authority to meet and collect specific customers upon arrival. Larger villages operate their own rural taxis, which can only be hired within the villages.

However, intercity Cyprus taxi transfers are able to provide unlimited transport between all major destinations, including, Larnaca, Lefkosia, Limassol, Paphos, Famagusta, Aya Napa, etc.
