"TIMESHARE TOUTS." Cyprus Warnings Or Dangers Tip by RobMorgan

Cyprus Warnings and Dangers: 72 reviews and 50 photos

We thought the quieter side of Cyprus, Paphos, would have been free of timeshare touts (seen loads in Tenerife), but seems they have found here too.
As you get off the bus in Paphos & walk towards the old castle in the bay, they pounce on you with scratch cards, & guess what ? everybody has won !!!! so they take you then to an office to try & sell you an apartment....we sat on the seawall & watched many people being taken in by them, some even getting into taxis to be taken away.....PLEASE don`t be taken in by them, remember "THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A FREE LUNCH".

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
