Why rent a car in Kefalonia?

The 6th largest island in Greece, Kefalonia (also sometimes written as Cephalonia, Kefallinia, and Kephallenia) is a fascinating place to explore. Travel around it in your rental car, and you’ll soon discover that there’s a lot more to this place than its world-class beaches, with stunning inland nature areas, ancient cult sites, and idyllic olive farms being just some of its attractions.

Kefalonia

Top ways to enter Kefalonia

  • Kefalonia Airport: Located near the island’s largest city, Argostoli, Kefalonia hosts flights by more than 20 different airlines and served nearly 800,000 travelers annually.
  • Zakynthos Airport: Located on nearby Zakynthos island, this airports sees more than twice as much annual air traffic as Kefalonia Airport. 
  • Patras Airport: Located in the nearby Peloponnese Region on mainland Greece, this airport serves the city of Patras which is connected to many Ionian islands, including Kefalonia, by a frequent ferry service.
  • Preveza Airport: Also located on the Greek mainland, Preveza Airport (sometimes also known as Aktion Airport) is mainly active during the summer months when it hosts flights by more than 15 different airlines.

City facts

  • Like many other Greek islands, Kefalonia enjoys a hot Mediterranean climate. The temperature quite often exceeds 30 °C  (86 °F) from June to September. Winters are mild, and the days are rarely colder than 10 °C  (50 °F), although there is a significant increase in rainfall.
  • Although the question is still hotly debated, some researchers assume that the Greek mythical hero Odysseus was supposed to be from Kefalonia. According to one version, he hailed from the island’s northwestern peninsula Paliki.
  • Kefalonia is famous not only for its olives, but also for very good dry white wines. Do try them on a day when you’re not driving!

Top sights and activities

  • Argostoli. The island’s main town might not be as spectacular as some other Greek cities, but it’s a great place for first impressions. Learn more about Kefalonia’s unique history in the Archaeological Museum and the Folk Museum, visit some of the best restaurants on the island, and use Argostoli as a base for visiting many nearby beaches and nature areas.
  • Melissani Cave. There are a number of famous and beautiful caves in Kefalonia, but Melissani is perhaps the standout one among them thanks to its azure water that fills the cave from and underground spring, the impressive stalactites, and its historic religious importance as a worshipping place for the Ancient Greek god Pan and different water nymphs. Melissani is located near the town of Sami, about 40 minutes drive east of Argostoli.
  • Fanari Road. More an experience than a single destination, driving along the picturesque and coastal Fanari Road is one of the best ways to get to know Kefalonia, whether you choose to visit the Lighthouse of Saint Theodoroi or to make for a relaxing stop at one of the secluded beaches along the road.
  • Fiskardo. Located near the northernmost tip of the island, Fiskardo is one of the most popular beach resorts of Kefalonia. The area is rather posh, developed, and busy, but the natural beauty of Fiskardo’s beach and bay, and the surrounding cypress forests still make it a lovely place to visit. A trip from Kefalonia airport takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes by car.
  • Museums and archaeological sites. The island of Kefalonia has been inhabited since Classical Antiquity, and many of the fascinating stories of its past survive to this day. The best places to hear them are Kefalonia’s museums that are scattered across the island such as the History and Culture Museum in Argostoli, the Archaeological Museum (also in Argostoli), and the Byzantine Museum in Livathos, as well as heritage buildings and archaeological sites from various eras.

Traffic and parking

  • There are no highways in Kefalonia (nor on any other Greek islands).
  • Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the speed limits are 90 km/h (55.9 mph) on roads outside populated areas, and 50 km/h (31 mph) in populated and built-up areas.
  • While the larger Kefalonia roads are in good shape, the smaller roads might have poor surfacing and potholes. Be careful when driving on them, especially after dark.
  • Many gas stations might be closed during the weekends and public holidays. 
  • It is illegal to use a mobile phone while driving.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.02% for novice drivers. Exceeding these limits can lead to high fines and a licence ban. Exceeding the limit of 0.08% is a criminal offence and can lead to up to two years of imprisonment.
  • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The general emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112. The police number is 100, the ambulance number is 166, and the fire brigade number is 199.

Toll roads

There are no toll roads in Kefalonia. There are a number of toll roads, tunnels, and bridges on mainland Greece. Many travelers find them very hard to navigate and some choose to avoid using the toll roads altogether because of the very complex toll road system that is in place. Different toll roads are administered by different private companies and so there is not a single, nationwide (or even region-wide) toll road system in place.

For most toll roads, the payment can be either made by cash at a toll gate, by a credit card, or by coins at an automatic toll slot machine. For some roads, an electronic transponder that’s in a car might be used to pay for using the toll road. Some rental cars might be equipped with such an electronic transponder. However, because of the aforementioned different toll road systems that are in place, this payment method might work for some toll roads, but not for others. Set out your route in advance and ask your car rental provider about the best way to pay for all the toll roads that you plan to use.

Find out more about toll roads in Greece on the European toll road website.

Ideas for day trips

  • Beaches. Kefalonia is nothing without its beautiful sea coast. Myrtos Beach is the most famous one, often frequently mentioned as one of the best beaches in the world thanks to its spectacular location between two high mountains. Should you ever find it too busy, the picturesque Petanoi Beach and the calm Dafnoudi Beach are just a short drive away.
  • Assos. Located just north of the Myrtos Beach, the village of Assos is a perfect place to spend a relaxing day or two. Visit one of its local taverns or, if you’re up for something more challenging, go on the steep climb to the beautiful Venetian castle that’s located here.
  • Mount Ainos. The tallest mountain in Kefalonia and sometimes also called Monte Nero or Black Mountain in Italian, Mount Ainos stands 1,628 meters (3,541 ft) high. You can drive for a part of the distance towards the summit, then make the last steps on foot through a forest of firs. The view from the top will be more than rewarding.

Most popular cars

The most popular rental cars in Kefalonia are the VW Polo, the Suzuki Celerio, and the Opel Corsa. The most popular rental car types are economy, mini, and compact.

Although the island’s territory is rather small, you’ll find decent mountains in Kefalonia. If you’re eager to explore them (as you should be), getting a more powerful rental car might be a good idea.

Further destinations

  • Corfu. Not the largest, but perhaps the best known of the Ionian Islands, Corfu is a great holiday spot thanks to its Ancient Greek history, unique cuisine, and beautiful monasteries. It’s possible to take a rental car on a ferry, but first get in touch with your rental car provider to make sure if they permit it.
  • Zakynthos. With even older roots of civilization than Kefalonia or Corfu, Zakynthos combines interesting history with spectacular nature. Many Greeks consider it to be the most beautiful place in all of the country. It’s possible to take a rental car on a ferry, but first get in touch with your rental car provider to make sure if they permit it.
  • Patras. Famous for its varied architecture, flamboyant carnival, and the nearby Mount Panichaiko, Patras is an interesting destination on the nearby mainland. Specific landmarks include Patras Castle (or Kastro), the Archaeological Museum, Turkish baths, and the Roman Odeon. As with all the other destinations, ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit you to leave Zakynthos with the car.
  • Athens. One of the most interesting European capitals not just for its splendid past, but also present, Athens is both the birthplace of democracy and a modern metropolis full of culture and entertainment. The trip from Zakynthos takes about 4 hours and 30 minutes. Ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit it

We stayed at an Air BnB in Karavomilos... so much to see on Kefalonia! Fteri Water Taxi day trip was the best... can't recommend highly enough! Also went to Melissani Lake and Cave, Zervati Cave, and Drogarati Cave (which was one of the main reasons to come and it did NOT disappoint). We went to Argostoli, walked to the Lighthouse Saint Theodoroi, and Katavothres. We saw the sunset from Makris Gialos beach one night. Drove to Antisamos beach and went to Sami Acropolis. The only thing disappointing was having to leave.

On the rental part, as mentioned, very good service and price/ quality. On Kefalonia - I must say that for me it was a beautiful experience due to the views, food, and people on the island. During 1 week spent here, I was able to travel ~700 km. I recommend the following beaches: Myrtos, Petani, Xi (but all the rest were very nice beaches). In terms of restaurants, I recommend: Platanos Traditional (in Asos - good fish, gyros, nice people, pretty cheap), Casa Grec (Argosolion - the best food I ate on Kefalonia, not the nicest people, above average prices), Kastro Cafe (near the Venetian Castle of St. George - amazing people, super good food - best tzatziki, best coffee, best sweets - beautiful view, not expensive. I feel bad that I did not have the chance to take a proper dinner here as I was on the run).

Kefalonia is a beautiful island with breath taking sights around every corner. Driving isn't really difficult although the streets in the towns can be congested and you have to concentrate on some of the mountain roads which can be narrow and have hairpin bends to negotiate. The ferry from Argostoli to Lixouri is cheap, very easy to negotiate (at both ends of the journey), has friendly staff and is an extremely useful short cut to that part of the island. Recommended beaches - Atheras (quiet and outstandingly pretty - by far the best in my opinion); Xi (don't miss a mud bath); Myrtos; Lassi - Kalamia (very friendly beach bar man). Antisamos was busy and lively if you like that sort of thing. Other places - Fiskardo and Assos (both are attractive villages with lots of atmosphere); Argostoli - both during the day and at night; Melissani Cave (outstanding experience and the boat men are fantastic guides); Fanari - the iconic light house, the strange phenomenon of seeing the sea flow inland(!) and the desperately sad story at the Italian War Memorial. A few other considerations - 1) don't miss the sea turtles in Argostoli; 2) the resort food stores are very expensive so, if you are self catering, get your fruit, veg, meat and fish from the market in Argostoli and stock up on everything else at one of the supermarkets in the town or on the dual carriageway heading out towards Pesada; 3) take a boat trip if you are able; 4) everywhere is very relaxed and laid back - a guy can walk around without wearing a shirt and get service pretty much everywhere (in and out of town), however, if you do this, remember the sunscreen!

Kephalonia is a great island not sullied by the night clubs noise and rubbish that we have seen on other islands. It has retained the great character and simplicity of a Greek island that hasn’t succumbed to the endless British pub culture that can be seen in resorts on other islands.

Kefalonia is a mountainous island so if there’s more than 2 people in the car I would recommend a high engine car!
