About Us!

Have a HAPPY Holiday with a HAPPY Car Hire.

HAPPY CAR HIRE is a British and South African family owned and run business based in Paphos.

Even though we are a newly formed company we have over 20 years car hire experience between us.   We have been in the car hire industry for over 10 years in Cyprus as employees. We have experienced first-hand how NOT to treat customers, and being unable, as employees, to make changes was extremely frustrating.  We then decided to offer quality vehicles at an affordable rate with excellent customer service, something we all want and deserve. 

Our objective is to make your car hire experience a HAPPY one!

We were very happy with the provided services. The communication was impeccable, we received a phone call shortly after submitting our rent request on the website and collected a car in few hours. We spent few days touring Cyprus, which cost us a budget friendly amount for the car rent. Highly recommend.

Tony Baccarini

Outstanding car hire company. I booked very last minute, but they accommodated me and met us at the Airport with the car. Prices are very reasonable and there are no hidden extras.
Unfortunately I caused some damage to the car (My Fault), but when I phoned the office the issue was dealt with fairly and without issue or stress, which was very much appreciated. We will definitely use these guys again, 5 Star treatment.

Just coming to the end of a month in Cyprus, and we needed to hire a care at fairly short notice soon after arrival. Happy Car Hire is well named as we are very happy customers! Very well priced, during a period when some firms charges were bordering on the ridiculous as they try to boost their profits after the pandemic, and we were really looked after well by Keith and Carol. We will certainly use them again and recommend them to friends.

Fay Smith

Keith and Carol were waiting for us at the airport coming in to Cyprus and when we were going home. The car was lovely and clean and in good order, and included complimentary face masks and sanitizer, which was a thoughtful addition. Really pleased with our car hire and will definitely be using Happy Car Hire again.

More than just Car Hire

Baby Seats and Booster Seats

As with most car hire companies we can also supply baby seats and boosters seats, but as family people ourselves, we don’t believe in kids being an huge added expense.  There for we will only charge a small fee for each day of your rental.
