Driving a car hire in Kefalonia may seem a bit daunting given its mountainous landscape, but many enjoy the challenge of a nice drive along such a beautiful island. Here are our driving tips to help you get around safely during your holiday.
The Greek island of Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands in Western Greece. It is considered to be the heart of the earthquake zone and, therefore, experiences dozens of tremors each year. Driving here can offer you breathtaking views of the stunning turquoise blue seas that surround the island. Kefalonia has a mountainous terrain; therefore, when hiring a car you should make sure you get one suited for the route you plan to travel.
Kefalonia has a sister island, Ithaca. Ferries can be taken there daily, from Sami to Pisaetos, which takes approximately 40 minutes. You can also take a ferry directly to Lefkas in the north, an island that is well known for its wine. Please note that most car hire companies do not authorise the use of rental cars on ferries; therefore, we advise you to check with your local supplier beforehand. This information can also be found listed on our website under "Terms, Conditions & Local Fees", as well as on our voucher, in the Terms and Conditions.
Other popular routes include a scenic drive by car to Sami; from there you can ferry to Corfu. Easter celebrations here are said to be an experience of a lifetime. Whichever way you decide to spend your holiday in Greece, you are sure to enjoy yourself by taking in the breathtaking views and warm sunshine.
Kefalonia International Airport (EFL)
Website: Kefalonia Airport
Telephone: +30 267 102 9900
This is the only airport in the island, located about 10 km south of Argostoli. Flights mainly arrive from Athens; however, in the summer there are often a number of charter flights from all over Europe.
The ferry between Argostoli and Lixouri runs every hour during the off season and every half hour during peak season. There are a few bus lines that serve the more rural areas of Kefalonia, which usually run two times per day. Services offered are from Lixouri, Poros and Argostoli to the mainland. Please note that, as mentioned above, most car hire companies do not authorise the use of rental cars on ferries. Always check the relevant Terms and Conditions.
