Car Hire in Kefalonia

We are going to Kefalonia in September and are staying in Lourdas, Could anybody help us by recommending a car hire company which is reasonable in cost and which we can book before we go so that we can pick it up direct at the airport and drop off there also.

Any info or recommendations on taferna's etc would also be appreciated.

Thanks

Every year we have used the same car hire company, there company name is "cefalonia rentacar" they will bring a car to your apartment or you can collect from the airport as we do. I can totally rely and recommend this company as we have used them for over 10 years. you can make first contact by email at

I have also booked for September and found a really reasonable local company called Pefanis Car Hire. Rather than using one of the bigger firms with god knows how many added extras to the price, this company offer a daily rate that is all inclusive with no excess. I paid 175 euros for a Ford Fiesta with air con, collect and drop off at the airport.

We always use cbr car rentals when we go to Kefalonia. They give us excellent service. We pick the car up at the airport & drop it off there. They do have an office in Lourdas if that helps.

You must visit Thornton in his quirky little shop/cafe under the large tree in 'the square'. It's a great place for a coffee, some history!! & to meet & talk to the friendly local people.

Another great place to eat is the Elionas? (The Olive Tree) near Svoranto. we were told about it from the gentleman we rent our apartments from. He goes there a lot all year round. The food & friendly service is great.....try the briam as a starter.

Also, the Kastro under the Castle is a great place for either a snack followed by wonderful home made cakes, just a refreshing drink. There too you will get amazing service. They do not open in the evenings though. Fantastic views from there.

Hi adrain

Yes, just as easy, find the deal that suits you, hand over your licence, the hirer takes a few details, you sign on the line, cough up the cash and drive away. Make sure the insurance covers you for everything, as some deals seem cheap until they then start to add on the "extras". Most garages in Kefalonia won't accept credit cards for fuel so make sure you have enough cash, and in the remoter parts of the island, garages are few and far between so if you're heading out for a long day's drive, keep the tank well topped up.

Although it has never happened to us in 20 years, you do read on here about folk who have used a credit card as payment, returned the car, and then when they get back home, find that a charge has been made on the CC for "damages". Because of this, we always pay cash, which seems to suit most businesses in Greece right now anyway.
