Location information for Corfu

Corfu is a family-friendly Greek island tucked away in the nation's northwest corner. The tourism industry on this island, also called Kerkyra, dates back well over a century. It takes no more than 90 minutes to drive to any point on Corfu from another with a car rental in Corfu. Corfu's narrow south end contains the island's sandiest beaches, while north Corfu's beaches have more pebbles and are surrounded by mountains.

Transport

[transport]

Two imposing fortresses guard Corfu's namesake largest city, the first stop for most tourists who arrive on the island aboard the frequent cruise ships or by air from Corfu International Airport. Corfu Town, which the locals call Kastropolis, is a great place to pick up a rental vehicle. But be sure and compare car hire offers on the internet before arriving. Corfu's ubiquitous green and blue buses are the island's most popular public transportation.

Car Hire Corfu

Alamo, Avis and Sixt are among the five global companies at Corfu International Airport offering rentals, but many more places offer vehicles for rent throughout the island. Vehicles booked in advance online are generally cheaper than those rented on arrival, and smaller cars are recommended for driving along Corfu's narrow roads.

Driving

Driving a car hire in Corfu is a snap once motorists master the art of navigating the island's hilly, winding and narrow roads. It costs nothing to park in the designated areas near most of Corfu's main beaches. Drivers should keep their eyes peeled for potholes, however, as most hire car insurance doesn't cover vehicle underside damage.

Things To See and Do

Corfu visitors searching for calm waters will find them on the island's west side, while Corfu's east side contains the island's sandiest beaches. Corfu's first tourist resort, Benitses, is still going strong 12kms from Corfu Town on the island's east coast. The more traditional village of Kynopiastes, 10kms from Corfu Town, boasts Corfu's only museum, an exquisite marble church and a tavern called Trypas, where countless world leaders and royalty have quaffed drinks over the years.

Best Time To Visit

Corfu enjoys up to 12 daily hours of sunshine and average daytime temperatures as high as 31°C during the island's busy summer tourist season. However, spring and autumn visitors can avoid those pesky summer crowds while still enjoying average temperatures as high as 23°C well into October. Most of Corfu's rainfall happens during its coldest months between November and March, when average daily temperatures nonetheless rarely fall below 13°C.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is 121CarHire.com the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place.
