Police, Ambulance and Fire Service in Cyprus use the Emergency number that is valid in all countries of the EU, 112.
If you are unlucky enough to be involved in any sort of traffic accident while driving on a road in Cyprus, the police should always be contacted.
When you call the emergency number, 112 it is directed to the Police in the first instance.
Police will call an ambulance or the fire service to the scene if required.
The accident and reporting procedures are broadly similar to the UK.
This means that police will only attend accidents that involve injury, driving offences or special situations where, for example, the road is blocked.
Do not move your car before contacting the Police.
If you do move your vehicle, you could be deemed to be at fault, even though this may not be the case.
Always carry with you:
In a rented car – driving licence – rental documents
In a locally registered car – driving licence – insurance.
Police Officers in Cyprus invariably speak some English and many have a good knowledge of the language.
