Airport and hire cars

Hi all,

Could anyone please tell me if kefalonia airport is the type of place we would be able to sit and have a drink/food if we are waiting for some friends who arrive on a flight an hour or so after us?

We are all hiring a car together rather than pay the hefty taxi fees to aghi effimia but will have to kill some time...

Also, can anyone recommend a car hire company? Ive seen them for about £250 for a week which seems pretty steep? Also, would we be able to fit 4 people and 4 cases in a hire car/taxi?

Cefalonnia airport has only a restaurant for coffe and snacks sandwiches etc. I think that pre booking taxi is a good idea but in Greece you can play with the prices everywhere. So if you don't have a problem ask for a better price.

There is a cafe about a 2 minute walk from the airport. Just turn right out of the airport and the cafe is on your right hand side as the road bears to the left.

It overlooks the runway so you can see your friends arrive.

Also forgot to say in my previous post.

Best place I have seen to hire a car is www.economycarrentals.co.uk.

to fit 4 people and 4 cases you are going to need a big car!!!

Hi SkyBlue,

As markview says the nearby Taverna - Ikarus is a great place to while away the time while you wait for your friends flight. Food and drink are reasonably priced and theres even a swimming pool.

I'll respond seperately to another post about taxis from the airport.

We have always hired a car in resort because our transfers were included but this year travelled independently so shopped around for carhire from the airport & most of the price comparison sites came up with Argus as being the most competetive. There were four of us too so we went for a group C car which easily accommodated our 4 cases, hand luggage etc. Although booked through Argus the car itself was provided by Express rent a car, their site is just down a little lane next to the Taverna but they do meet you and drop you back at the airport on return. Their service was excellent and we would have no hesitation in using them again.

They have their own website www.expressrentacar.gr but as we only returned last night I've not checked to see what difference, if any there is between booking direct or through Argus.

Have a great holiday, you have chosen a beautiful island and lovely resort in Aghia Effimia .
