Hire a car in Kefalonia

The largest Ionian island, Kefalonia is the best Grecian island for laid-back vibes.

Given the island's large size, you can easily find yourself off the beaten path, even in peak season. Kefalonia is known for having some of the cleanest and most radiant beaches in Greece, as well as a richness and old world charm that links back to some intriguing mythology. Though Kefalonia suffered an earthquake in 1953, which flattened most of its town, Venetian architecture still dots the land.

Greece isn't known for its public transportation and Kefalonia is no exception. Its infrequency is less than ideal for travellers and taxi prices are sky high. Hiring a car can make all the difference when travelling around the island.

When driving, look out for one-way streets and pedestrianised roads – some streets are pedestrianised just during the evening.
