COVID-19 and Travel

Should I book a summer vacation to Cyprus in 2021?

We do not recommend that you book flights even if plane ticket prices are down right now.

However, you can get a great deal on hotels for next summer, since the hotels are offering full refunds without penalties, so you can always cancel and change your travel plans last minute.

We would suggest that you book through the main booking engines such as Booking.com or Hotels.com and choose from the major hotel chains such as Hilton, Best Western, Accor, etc.

Make sure you reserve a hotel room without paying for it upfront and your credit card will not be charged.
