Useful Information About North Cyprus

  • Your apartment has been fitted with 220V electricity with 3 pin plugs the same as in the UK. Most electrical items bought in North Cyprus will come with a 2 pin plug, so you will need a 2 pin to 3 pin adaptor for these items, which are available for sale in the Tavor Management office.
  • You will get a better rate of exchange on your currency if you wait until you get to North Cyprus to change from Sterling into Turkish Lira. The best rates of exchange can be found in exchange bureau's in the major towns.
  • You should not flush toilet paper, nappies or sanitary items down the toilets in North Cyprus due to the sewage systems. There is a bin provided in most toilets for your waste paper.
