1TL = 0.67 USD

Hotels can be at or below 100TL pp, per night for 3-4 star hotels. For 5-star resorts prices are around 130-200TL pp, per night. Since this is a summer vacation destination, low season (October - March) can be cheaper than these.

For transportation, rental car would probably be the best option. They have a 3-day minimum rule, and the cost is around 200-250TL for 3-days, including insurance, excluding gas. This amount is for the compact car class like Ford Focus, Peugeot 206 etc. Cab rides between the hotels are around 10-20TL, and to and from airport around 60TL one way. Public transportation is very weak so you're bound to rental car or cabs, unless you're a high roller, in which case you will be transported around with casinos' luxury cars. For rental cars, keep in mind that traffic goes from the left-side in Cyprus.

Since only Turkey recognizes Northern Cyprus, the only way to fly to Ercan Airport (ECN) would be via Turkey. From Istanbul, there are several flights daily from both airports (IST and SAW). Flights usually run between 150TL-250TL round-trip, of course dependent on seasonal demand, and how much in advance you purchase the ticket.

Casinos offer free drinks and free snacks (toasts, burgers, sandwiches), and some also have free buffets for table games players.

Official language in Northern Cyprus is Turkish, but as in all touristic places, English is pretty common. Dealers and casino personnel will for sure speak English, but out of casino English usage might be a little spotty.

Default casinos

english will be enough for you because almost all dealers speak english and pit bosses speak english also. food and beverage are free, if you play something like 2000 $ they will probably give you free room but of course this number is different for different casinos.
first spoken language turkish, but most cyprus turkish people knows english also but the dealers are not cyprus turkish, they are generally from ukraine, belaroussia, georgia, romania or countries like that. i hate that dealers and pit bosses speak in russian between themselves or sometimes with other players and i dont understand anything.

Default planning a trip to northern cyprus

Hi,

I'm planning a trip to northern cyprus and am very interested in getting the location of the casino offering early surrender and the exact +EV it gives the player for advantage play purposes. But I'm a new member of this site and can't seem to PM the relevant members (

Can you contact me on this topic.

Default rebate

funny, a few weeks ago i saw someone playing baccarat,
this is the only time i saw baccarat in cyprus, i bet most pit bosses and dealers dont know how to play (i dont).
i saw people get loss rebate for all the games (stud poker, roulette, BJ) but i am not sure for every casino, so you should check at the casino before playing, also every casino gives back different percentages for different amounts.
all the casinos i visited offered a loss rebate between 10 and 25 percent.
but when you go to a casino for example 10 times and you have for example 7 winning 3 losing sessions and you are up against that casino they may decide to not give you anymore loss rebates.
