Kefalonia Airport Guide

Car Hire

Visitors to the Greek island of Kefalonia will arrive at Kefalonia Airport, which is located around five miles from the island capital of Argostoli. Many flights which land here are charters from Athens; however, the airport also receives a number of flights from mainland Europe. The airport is only a short drive from the capital and a quick, scenic ride to a number of other tourist destinations on the island.

Who to Book With
There are a number of car rental companies found within Kefalonia Airport, such as Hertz, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Thrifty, National, Sixt and Alamo. All rental companies supply a wide array of vehicles which can be rented either on the day or pre-booked online.

Need to Know Essentials
In order to collect a pre-booked vehicle, you must supply the following documents:

- Both sections of a valid driver’s licence
- The credit card used when completing the booking
- Your passport
- A utility bill as proof of address
- The booking confirmation email

Driving in Greece is on the right, while overtaking is on the left. Driving defensively is advisable in Greece as local drivers often drive dangerously. The highways are well maintained and there is a clear distinction between lanes. The fast lane should never be obstructed and the middle lane is always used for overtaking. Outside of the main cities, roads can be slightly more careworn. A road map is useful as not all roads are signposted. Many petrol stations close on Sunday, although by law one must be open on Sunday in each area. Heavy fines are enforced for drivers who run red lights, cross double white lines or do not stop at stop signs.

See our guide to Greece for more information on driving here.


The airport is poorly serviced by public transport. There is no train station or bus terminal at the airport, meaning those who opt not to hire a vehicle will be left with taxis as their only transport option.

As there is no train or bus service linking the airport with the surrounding areas, taxis are the only option for those who do not opt to self-drive. The taxi rank is located outside of the main terminal. Although some taxis have meters, it is best to agree a price with the driver beforehand.

Taxi prices:
Kefalonia Airport to Argostoli is about £10
Kefalonia Airport to Katelious is about £25
Kefalonia Airport to Fiskardo is about £30

There are no bus services linking Kefalonia Airport with the rest of the island. However, Argostoli bus station is only a short ride away by taxi, as is Fiskardo bus station. From these stations, a number of buses run to popular destinations across the island. Tourists should be aware that services are infrequent and stops are limited. Timetables and pricing information can be found at the bus stations.


Kefalonia Airport is small for an international airport, but the one terminal adequately serves outgoing and incoming flights from across Europe. There are flights every hour to Athens. There are three check-in desks and two baggage claim belts. Flights arrive daily during the summer with airlines such as EasyJet and Thomas Cook.

There is a small car park directly outside of the terminal, only a short walk from the main entrance. This car park is used for both long stays and short stays, and charges are applied by the hour. There is no discount for long stays. There are a number of ticket machines where payment can be made as you exit the car park.

There is no Wi-Fi within the airport.

Information Services
There is a small information desk in the Arrivals hall, which is found in the centre of the terminal. Here, visitors can get information about local events and sights, arrivals and departures, as well as help with hotel reservations. It is also possible to report lost luggage or other airport-related issues at this desk.

Useful Numbers

The airport is reasonably small and easy to get around, having been adapted for those with reduced mobility. There are a number or disabled persons’ parking spaces in front of the terminal, along with disabled persons’ bathroom facilities in both Arrivals and Departures. Those requiring further assistance can contact the information desk.

Restaurants and Bars
Although there is no main restaurant, there are a handful of cafés within the terminal for passengers wanting to purchase hot and cold sandwiches, along with confectioneries and crisps. Most cafés serve alcohol, particularly local brands. There is also a small newsagent where customers can purchase a quick bite to eat.

VIP Lounges
There is no VIP lounge at Kefalonia Airport.

Money and ATMs
There are a number of ATMs in Arrivals and Departures and next to the information desk. The airport also has a currency exchange facility which can exchange pounds sterling into euro and vice versa. Further to this, there is a post office which offers a number of other currency services.

There are no major brands represented at the airport; however, there is a small duty-free section where customers can purchase duty-free alcohol and perfume along with tobacco, confectioneries and local produce.

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 Carrentals.co.uk 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?
