Car Hire Companies

Whilst the island is getting more popular each year, unlike other holiday destinations, the scenic roads on Kefalonia are never crowded. You can explore the island and visit the picturesque villages, places of historical interest and scenic viewpoints at your own leisure.

The best way see the island at your own pace is by car and there are quite a few car hire companies to chose from. Below are links to a selection of car hire companies, in no particular order or preference, operating on the island. Some of the companies may be near to where you are staying, some will have offices at or near to the airport and will deliver the vehicle of your choice to the airport or your accommodation without charge.

Whichever company you choose to use, be sure to read their terms and conditions, especially if you are intending to do a lot of mileage, as they may contain limited mileage charges. Before you take control of a vehicle, take the time to go over it and look for any damage, if there are any dents or scratches caused by the previous driver make sure it is recorded on the checkout form, otherwise you may be charged for the damage when you return the vehicle.

Drive on the right


In unmarked junctions and exits there is unconditional right of way for traffic on the main road or right of way for traffic approaching from the right in Greece


In signed/marked junctions, traffic on the main road has right of way unless there's a stop sign which means you must give way to the right.
