North Cyprus : Trevor’s Tips for May 2018


By Trevor Hughes……

TRNC Driving License Fee

Please note, the 5-year TRNC diving license fee, incorrectly reported last month has been increased to 555TL up from 495TL which should have read, up from 455TL.

Capital Insurance

There are several new amendments to some of their insurance products which will be extremely interesting to new and existing customers. When I have received all the information I will circulate the information to you all. Should make interesting reading.

Bank Transaction Fees

Capital Insurance are now wavering the U and I Band fees for their customers who are out of the Country at the time their insurance renewal is due. This will save our customers several pounds when making their renewal payments. This facility is open to all our insurance customers whether they are Capital Bank customers or not!

Bayram Holidays

Bayram holidays for this month are Tuesday 1st of May when Government, local Government offices, Banks and schools will be closed for the Day.

Because the Bayram holiday on the 19th of May falls on a Saturday the offices listed above will be closed, as this is their normal weekend off.

Chemist Relocation

The chemist on the main road in Karşıyaka almost opposite Benjamin Garden has re-located to a new address, which is opposite Alı Edıp on the mountain side, called Ayşen Altan Eczanesi,Mareşal Fevzı Çakmak Caddesi.

Aysen not only owns all of the ground floor for her chemist activity, she also owns the apartment above which she wants to rent out. Contact Ayşen Altan on 0533 858 5208 for more information.

Motor vehicle Head Lining

I was recommended to inspect a customer’s car head lining which had just been replaced. I must say the job was of excellent quality and you would not have believed it had been replaced.

The said vehicle was a Vauxhall Vectra which is by no means a small one.

If you are in need of a replacement head lining, if you call into the Alpet Petrol Station Opposite Lemar in Girne (by the HSBC roundabout) and the manager there will show you where the upholsterers, that completed the head lining is located, which is just opposite.

The cost for completion was only £100 and only took 2 days, much cheaper than the UK.

Akin Motors

This car dealer is located at the Bellapais traffic lights in Girne, he currently has a stock of over 100 cars of various engine size and value. His after sales programme is customer driven. And nothing is too much trouble.

Added to his latest vehicle stock is a range of Honda Motor Bikes of various engine sizes. All the motor bikes carry a Honda warranty of up to 4 years.

He can also arrange motorbike lessons for those who have never held a full licence, costing around 2000tl to include the official test.

He now offers finance packages lower than the market average, which includes finance from the UK.

For more information either go to his premises or call on 0533 887 8707 and see what he’s got on offer.
