Local transport.

What is the position re buses from the airport to the bus station at Argostoli? We then need to travel onward to Sami.

Hi Ann and welcome,

The short answer is no! Buses do not run from the airport and the only buses from Argostoli to Sami, according to the latest timetable, leave at 11:30 and 13:00. Monday to Friday. Apparently there is no service on Saturdays or Sundays.

You have three choices in reality

Take a taxi to Sami that will cost about 50€ each way

Take a taxi to Argostoli costing about 20€ and taking about 20 mins if you can get there before the buses leave

Hire a car for the duration of the holiday to collect from, and return to, the airport. If you think this is for you then have a look at these companies that are recommended by regular visitors.

Have a look at their terms and conditions as they have different attitudes towards CDW.

The third possibility if you are on your own or just two is to start another thread seeing if, by chance, there is someone else on your flight going to Sami and would like to share a taxi!

Sorry my response is so negative.

Hope you enjoy Sami.
