Ferries from Killini, Taxis and Car Hire

Both the midday and midnight ferries from Patra were stopped some years ago - despite many ferry websites still showing them! The reason (I was told) is that the government subsidised the ferry and with the crisis, the subsidy was withdrawn and with it the ferries. The only ferry is now from Killini late evening and returning from Vathy at 07:00.

The taxi fare is fixed at 15 euros to Vathy from Pisaitos, however you can return hire cars from Vathy (don't know about elsewhere) to Pisaitos and save a taxi.

hi margaret, I hadn't forgotten. www.ferries-greece still show ferries from Patra, but I tried a dummy booking with directferries.co.uk who show the same times for September and October as now. Perhaps they know something that Kefalonia Lines don't know as the ferry website stops at the end of August!

best wishes Colin
