THERE IS A SECRET ISLAND IN THE HEART OF THE MEDITERRANEAN...


…A HIDDEN JEWEL IN THE LEVANT – WITH GOLDEN BEACHES, PICTURE-POSTCARD VILLAGES AND BRILLIANT WEATHER” That is how Northern Cyprus has been described in the UK press, and knowing the country like we do, it is understandable that the hardened ‘hacks’ of Fleet Street are inspired to such prose. Even in this age of mass-tourism, Northern Cyprus remains virtually undiscovered and gloriously under-populated. Considered to be the most beautiful part of the island, the north receives less than one tenth of the visitors that swarm to the better known Cypriot resorts of Paphos, Limassol and Larnaca. The stunning horseshoe-shaped harbour in Kyrenia (pictured left), is just one of the many unforgettable sights waiting to greet you in this unique holiday destination. The natural geography of Northern Cyprus is such that you can spend the morning by the sea, indulging your tan, enjoy lunch in a mountain-top taverna, taking in the spectacular views and then spend a leisurely afternoon exploring some of the most incredible historical and cultural sites to be found in the whole Mediterranean. Surprisingly, amongst all this serenity and natural beauty, Northern Cyprus has another, more lively side. The bustling resort town of Kyrenia, boasts over 300 restaurants and tavernas, serving a wide range of cuisine from traditional Mediterranean fare to gourmet international dishes. For the more adventurous, there is an excellent choice of activities, such as horse riding, paragliding, gokarting, quad-biking, jeep safaris, archery and a full range of water sports including PADI scuba diving, waterskiing and windsurfing. The wonderful thing is that in Northern Cyprus, these activities blend in with their surroundings rather than overwhelm them. The sheer beauty of the countryside, the natural friendliness of the people and the most pleasing climate in the Mediterranean combine to make Northern Cyprus a truly unique holiday experience, and one that will stay in your memory for many years to come.

WHY NORTHERN CYPRUS? When to travel Northern Cyprus is blessed with the most pleasing climate in Europe. The winters are mild and rarely extend beyond February. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, the temperature can reach into the 70s as early as March. In April, May and June, Northern Cyprus is at its most beautiful, with fields of wild flowers in full bloom, and the weather not unlike that of a good English summer. July and August are the hottest months and ideal for sun worshippers. September and October are the most popular months, when the weather is still wonderfully warm (rarely below 80째F), but the evenings are fresher and more comfortable.

Restaurants and fantastic cuisine There is a wealth of restaurants to choose from in Northern Cyprus, offering everything from simple local fare to gourmet French cuisine. Eating out is not expensive and many restaurants can arrange for you to be picked up from your hotel and dropped back off after your meal, usually without charge. For traditionalists, the cuisine of Northern Cyprus owes its heritage to a mixture of Mediterranean and oriental influences. Local dishes are delicious and prepared from fresh ingredients. Meze is a particular treat – a Cypriot speciality consisting of a large number of hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, such as different salads, meats and fish dishes. It is served either as an appetiser or as a main course. Grilled haloumi cheese and sigara borek (feta cheese rolled in filo pastry and deep-fried) are two delectable dishes often served in a meze. Other typical dishes of the region include yalanci dolma (vine leaves stuffed with rice, onions and tomatoes); shish kebab (marinated lamb, skewered and grilled over charcoal), kleftiko (leg or shoulder of lamb baked in tomatoes), mousakka (layers of mince, potato and aubergines baked with a cheese topping) and lahmacun (thin Turkish pizza, with minced lamb, salad and spicy peppers wrapped in flat bread). Fish is also particularly good, and is usually served grilled or as a kebab. Choices include sea bream, red snapper and sea bass.

Typical desserts are lokum (Turkish delight); halva (extremely sweet slices of ground sesame seeds and sugar) and baklava (made from mille-feuille pastry, nuts, honey and syrup), and finally, the traditional thick Turkish coffee. Waiters will always ask how you want it: ‘Sah-de’ means no sugar, ‘Ortah’ means medium sweet, and ‘Shekerli’ means sweet. Wine-lovers will enjoy trying the local options. The most popular and delicious dry, white wine is known as Chankaya. Kavaklidere is the tastiest and best value of the reds.

Enjoy superb value shopping During the summer months, most shops in Northern Cyprus are open Mondays to Saturdays from 8am to 1pm and 3.30pm to 6.30pm. In the winter, they keep the same hours but do not close at lunchtime. For typical souvenirs of Northern Cyprus, shop for embroidery, lacework, sheepskin rugs and handmade basketry. Try to avoid the large pottery and ceramic shops, as prices charged are often exorbitant. Better to hunt around in the smaller gift shops, where prices are much more reasonable. Shopping has an etiquette in Northern Cyprus, especially in the more traditional stores. It can sometimes be more important to accept a cup of tea or Turkish coffee from a shop owner if offered, and stay for a chat, than to actually buy anything. Food, toiletries and general day to day items can be

purchased from the larger supermarkets, which can be found in and around the main towns of Kyrenia and Famagusta. The signs ‘Lemar’ and ‘Tempo’ indicate two of Cyprus’ biggest supermarket chains.

Make your money go further The currency of Northern Cyprus is the New Turkish Lira (TRY) – the exchange rate at the time of going to press was about 3.59 TRY to the pound sterling. Please check rates with your UK bank prior to departure. You can purchase TRY before departing from the UK, but changing sterling at banks and bureaux de change in Northern Cyprus usually produces a slightly better rate. Also, sterling is quite often quoted and accepted as payment in restaurants, shops and hotels. If that is not the case, inform your supplier that you would like to pay in pounds when you ask for your bill. Most establishments will translate your bill into pounds using the exchange rate quoted in that day’s newspaper. Change will almost always be given in TRY. Credit cards are gradually becoming more accepted in Northern Cyprus and there are many cash machines in main town centres where Turkish Lira may be obtained. Using a debit or credit card in Northern Cyprus can often attract a hefty commission charge. Check with the retailer or bank before passing over your card.

Driving in North Cyprus is the same as in the UK (on the left), the road conditions are reasonably good and major routes are all signposted.

Any variation to this pricing policy will be notified to you at time of booking. c) Changes in transportation costs (including the cost of fuel, dues, taxes or fees chargeable for services such as landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports) and exchange rates mean that the price of your travel arrangements may change after you have booked. However there will be no change within 30 days of your departure. We will absorb and you will not be charged for any increase equivalent to 2% of the price of your travel arrangements, which excludes insurance premiums and any amendment charges. You will be charged for the amount over and above that, plus an administration charge of £1.00 per person together with an amount to cover agents’ commission. If this means that you have to pay an increase of more than 10% of the price of your travel arrangements, you will have the option of accepting a change to another holiday if we are able to offer one (if this is of equivalent or higher quality you will not have to pay more but if it is of lower quality you will be refunded the difference in price), or cancelling and receiving a full refund of all monies paid, except for any amendment charges. We will consider an appropriate refund of insurance premiums paid if you can show that you are unable to transfer or reuse your policy. Should you decide to cancel for this reason, you must exercise your right to do so within 14 days from the issue date printed on your final invoice. Should the price of your holiday go down due to the changes mentioned above, by more than 2% of your holiday cost, then any refund due will be paid to you. However, please note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes have no impact on the price of your travel due to contractual and other protection in place.

5. If You Change Your Booking If, after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, for example your chosen departure date or accommodation, we will do our utmost to make these changes but it may not always be possible. Any request for changes to be made must be in writing from the person who made the booking or your travel agent. You will be asked to pay an administration charge of £50 per change, and any further cost we incur in making this alteration. You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made and you should contact us as soon as possible. Note: Certain travel arrangements (e.g. Flight Tickets) may not be changeable after a reservation has been made and any alteration request could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements. 6. If You Cancel Your Holiday You, or any member of your party, may cancel your travel arrangements at any time. Written notification from the person who made the booking or your travel agent on your behalf must be received at our offices. Since we incur costs in cancelling your travel arrangements, you will have to pay the applicable cancellation charges up to the maximum shown in accordance with the table below. Note: If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these charges. Please note your booking deposit my increase or there may be a charge payable for some accommodation, holidays or flight bookings where it is necessary to secure specific facilities with full payment at the time of booking. Period before departure within which written Amount of payment notice of cancellation is received by us due to us More than 56 days Deposit 56 to 31 days 50% 30 to 21 days 75% 20 days to 0 days 100% 7. If We Change or Cancel Your Holiday It is unlikely that we will have to make any changes to your travel arrangements, but we do plan the arrangements many months in advance. Occasionally, we may have to make changes and we reserve the right to do so at any time. Most of these changes will be minor and we will advise you or your travel agent of them at the earliest possible date. We also reserve the right in any circumstances to cancel your travel arrangements. For example, if the minimum number of clients required for a particular travel arrangement is not reached, we may have to cancel it. However, we will not cancel your travel arrangements less than 6 weeks before your departure date, except for reasons

of force majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance. If we are unable to provide the booked travel arrangements, you can either have a refund of all monies paid or accept an offer of alternative travel arrangements of comparable standard from us if available. If it is necessary to cancel your travel arrangements, we will pay to you compensation as set out in this clause. In accordance with EU Regulation 2111/2005 we are required to advise you of the actual carrier operating your flight/connecting flight/transfer. Any changes to the actual airline after you have received your tickets will be notified to you as soon as possible and in all cases at check-in or at the boarding gate. Such a change is deemed to be a minor change. Other examples of minor changes include alteration of your outward/return flights by less than 12 hours, changes to aircraft type, change of London Airport (i.e. Stansted, Luton, Heathrow or Gatwick), change of accommodation to another of the same or similar standard. If we make a major change to your holiday, we will inform you or your travel agent as soon as is reasonably possible if there is time before your departure. You will have the choice of either accepting the change of arrangements, accepting an offer of alternative travel arrangements of comparable standard from us if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value), or cancelling your booked holiday and receiving a full refund of all monies paid. In all cases, except where the major change arises due to reasons of force majeure, we will pay compensation as detailed below: If we make a major change to your holiday Period before departure within which Amount you will receive from us notice of or major change is notified to you cancellation for each full fare paying passenger More than 42 days No compensation 29 to 42 days £10 15 to 28 days £15 1 to 14 days £20 On departure date or in resort £40 The compensation that we offer does not exclude you from claiming more if you are entitled to do so. Force Majeure - We will not pay you compensation if we have to cancel or change your travel arrangements in any way because of unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control. These can include, for example, but not limited to, war, riot, industrial dispute, terrorist activity and its consequences, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions, epidemics and pandemics, unavoidable technical problems with transport.

8. If You Have A Complaint If you have a problem during your holiday, please inform the relevant supplier (e.g. your hotelier) and your resort representative immediately, who will endeavour to put things right. If your complaint is not resolved locally, please follow this up within 28 days of your return home by writing to our Customer Services Department at Cyprus Premier Holidays Ltd, Rowlandson House, 289-293 Ballards Lane, North Finchley, London N12 8NP giving your booking reference and all other relevant information. Please keep your letter concise and to the point. This will assist us to quickly identify your concerns and speed up our response to you. It is strongly recommended that you communicate any complaint to the supplier of the services in question as well as to our representative without delay and complete a report whilst in resort. If you fail to follow this simple procedure we will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were in resort and this may affect your rights under this contract. Please also see clause 3 above on ABTA. 9. Our Liability to You If the contract we have with you is not performed or is improperly performed by us or our suppliers we will pay you appropriate compensation if this has affected the enjoyment of your travel arrangements. However we will not be liable where any failure in the performance of the contract is due to: you; or a third party unconnected with the provision of the travel arrangements and where the failure is unforeseeable or unavoidable; or unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised; or an event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall. Our liability, except in cases involving death, injury or illness, shall be limited to a maximum of twice the cost of your travel arrangements. Our liability will also be limited in accordance with and/or in an identical manner to the contractual terms of the companies that provide the transportation for your travel arrangements. These terms are incorporated into this contract; and any relevant international convention, for example the Montreal Convention/ Warsaw Convention in respect of travel by air, which limit the amount of compensation that you can claim for death, injury, delay to passengers and loss, damage and delay to luggage. We are to be regarded as having all benefit of any limitation of compensation contained in these or any conventions. Under EU law (Regulation 261/2004) you have rights in some circumstances to refunds and/or compensation from your airline in cases of denied boarding, cancellation or delay to flights. Full details of these rights will be publicised at EU airports and will also be available from airlines. However reimbursement in such cases will not automatically

entitle you to a refund of your holiday cost from us. Your right to a refund and/or compensation from us is set out in clause 7. If any payments to you are due from us, any payment made to you by the airline will be deducted from this amount. If your airline does not comply with these rules you should complain to the Air Transport Users’ Council on 020 7240 6061 www.auc.org.uk 10. Insurance It is a condition of booking your holiday with us that you immediately take out relevant travel insurance with an adequate amount of cover for your chosen holiday. This is your responsibility and it will not be checked by us. If you chose to travel without adequate insurance cover, we will not be liable for any losses howsoever arising. 11. Special Requests Any special requests must be advised to us at the time of booking, e.g. diet, room location, a particular facility at a hotel etc. Whilst every effort will be made by us to try and arrange your reasonable special requests, we cannot guarantee that they will be fulfilled. The fact that a special request has been noted on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation or that it has been passed on to our suppliers is not confirmation that the request will be met. Failure to meet any special request will not be a breach of contract on our part unless the request has been specifically confirmed by us in writing. 12. Building Work Northern Cyprus permits building work by law, and we cannot legally prevent this. If disruption in your resort is severe we shall offer you an alternative Cyprus Premier Holidays accommodation of the same or similar standard at no extra cost, subject to availability. 13. Prompt assistance in resort If the contract we have with you is not performed or is improperly performed as a result of failures attributable to a third party unconnected with the provision of the services, or as a result of failures due to unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised, or an event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall, and you suffer an injury or other material loss, we will offer you such prompt assistance as is reasonable in the circumstances. 14. Passport, Visa and Immigration Requirements Your specific passport and visa requirements, and other immigration requirements are your responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates. We do not accept any responsibility if you cannot travel because you have

not complied with any passport, visa or immigration requirements. British passport holders do not require a visa to enter North Cyprus. Visa is required to enter Turkey, which can be applied online via the Turkish Government website www.evisa.gov.tr prior to travel.
