Accessible Travel

Overall Cyprus is not geared towards smooth travel for people with disabilities, sadly. Most restaurants, shops and tourist sights are not equipped to handle wheelchairs, though midrange and top-end accommodation options generally have wheelchair ramps, plus rooms with appropriate facilities. Transport is tricky, but you should be able to organise a specially modified hire car from one of the international car-rental companies with advance warning. In fact, advance warning is always a good idea; start with your travel agent and see what they can offer in terms of information and assistance.
