Accidents and Breakdown

Find out what to do in the event of an accident or breakdown...

By law, vehicles are required to carry a warning triangle.  Larger vehicles are required to carry two.  A first aid kit, fire extinguisher, and fluorescent jacket are recommended, but not compulsory

In case of accident or breakdown: note that while there are SOS phones on the motorways these rarely work. It is recommended to carry a cellular/mobile telephone. Most insurance companies offer a breakdown service included in the insurance policy.

The Cyprus Automobile Association is a non-profit organisation providing 24-hour emergency service to members and members of affiliate organisations.

There are several other private 24-hour breakdown service and towing companies in Cyprus.

In the event of an accident, do not move the vehicle unless it is in a dangerous position. Contact the insurance company and in some cases, the local police. Swap insurance details with the other driver and if possible take pictures of the scene. If the police are involved, a copy of the police report will be given to the insurance company.
