Location information for Kefalonia

Kefalonia, also known as Celphalonia, is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea. It is the largest of the so-called Ionian Islands and is known for its breathtaking beaches. Visitors from all over the world flock here to enjoy the white sandy beaches and sapphire blue ocean. Like most Greek islands, Kefalonia is ideal to explore by car. Make sure to book ahead after you compare car hire rates online for the cheapest deals.

Transport

[transport]

Kefalonia Island International Airport is located just south of the town of Argostoli, and is the main air gateway to the island. Although there are public buses available they tend to be unreliable. Taxis on the other hand are reasonable and safe. But of all the transport options available, car hire in Kefalonia is always the best in terms of flexibility and economy.

Car Hire Kefalonia

Self-driving is a popular choice of transportation on Kefalonia and certainly the best way to explore many of the beaches on the island. Vehicles are readily available for hire at Kefalonia's airport, with companies such as Avis, Europcar and Budget present. Other options are located in Argostoli.

Driving

Most of the main roads on the island are paved and the roads linking the main cities such as Argostoli, Proso, Fiskardo and Sami are especially good. Roads are generally well-signposted and easy to navigate. However, reckless driving in the cities is rampant, so care needs to be taken when driving on the island.

Things To See and Do

The most famous beach on the island is Myrtos Beach, located on the northern coast and easily reached by using car rental in Kefalonia. In the southern part of the island is Mount Ainos, the highest peak. Here, visitors will find the pristine Enos Forest, which is great for hiking. The city of Argostoli also has a lot to offer, such as the Archaeological Museum and Drapano stone bridge. The caves of Kefalonia, near Sami, should also not be missed.

Best Time To Visit

The Greek islands can be visited pretty much any time of the year, but the summer months are always the peak tourist season. Summer sees the least amount of rainfall, with average temperatures of around 22°C. The winter months, on the other hand, see the most rainfall but temperatures tend to be more pleasant at around 14°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. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by 121CarHire.com? at this location
