Ask Cyprus Travel Secrets

While I can answer questions sent in via my contact form, I hate it when valauble visitor information is hidden inside an e-mail that only one person gets to read.

So I decided to set up ASK CTS and I now have a mini library of frequently asked questions with answers either from me or from other people. Some of them, like this one about shops selling fake tobacco have become HOT topics and have a LONG list of comments too.

If you have a question Ask one by filling in the form below.

If you know the answer to a question someone else has just asked, Answer one! Leave your answer by clicking on a question and then click on add a COMMENT to give your answer.

Make sure you leave an e-mail address when submitting your question so you know when someone has answered it. That way, you can also keep up to date with any additional comments that are made on that particular thread.

And please check the submissions already made so you don't ask the same question twice.

If you find the Cyprus travel advice you are looking for, I'd be thrilled if you would consider buying me a coffee by giving a small donation - just to help keep the site running. Cheers!
