Hello Christine,

You'll need to check with the car hire company. Many have a minimum driver age of 25. Others do allow drivers of 21 to hire a car but you must have had a full licence for 3 years, the length of time you had a provisional licence won't count.

As for heading across the border, again, some companies will allow you to take the hire car over but many don't. You'll also have to buy extra insurance at the border crossing.

Another alternative is operated by some TRNC car hire firms who arrange for you to be picked up by taxi at Larnaca and take you to their hire depot in Nicosia. Sun Rent A Car is one such company who do this.
