Cyprus getaways not effected by crisis!!

Tourism officials are seeking to reassure holidaymakers thinking of visiting the island that the ongoing banking crisis will not impact on their getaway.

The Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) told Travel Weekly that most hotels and restaurants are operating as normal and that ATMs are working fine following the bailout the country secured from the EU.

'With a wide range of attractive packages on offer, now is the time to time to look to trustworthy holiday operators and enjoy a sun-filled break to the island and experience the warm and friendly hospitality that Cyprus is so famed for,' commented CTO UK director Orestis Rossides.

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office is advising travellers that each person (including children) is only allowed to take €1,000 (£850) in cash out of Cyprus and that you can enter Northern Cyprus with a maximum of €500 or its equivalent in foreign notes. Different rules apply for residents.

Opodo cheap flights, hotels and car hire - let the journey begin!
