Unfortunately public bus transport is pretty much non existant on the island. There are a couple of earlier threads which highlight what sparse bus service there is 9mainly to the captial Argostoli

Hi Bernie,

In a word "NO".

The public transport on Cephalonia is not "tourist friendly" It is more for people getting to work etc.

The link below shows the timetable

http://www.allkefalonia.com/ou-buses.html

You could get to the capital Argostoli but would have to return by the last bus at 14:00

You can get to Poros and Katelios. You can get to Fiscardo but not back!

There are coach excursions from Skala

There are also boat trips by Captain Vangelis which are popular.

If you consider car hire then the roads are fairly quiet.

If you do not have transfers included in your holiday it would make sense to hire a car to collect from and return to, the airport saving you about 50 Euros taxi fare each way.

If this appeals to you then three good companies that will deliver to the airport or Skala are Greekstones, Pefanis, Venus Car Hire. There are other good companies and I have never heard of a bad local company.

Hope this helps
