Getting around

Hi

We're staying in Lourdas in June- are taxi's relatively cheap to get around the Island?

Many thanks!

Three years ago they worked out about 1 euro a km for the longer journeys - not sure how the economic issues have changed prices though.

will cost a lot from Lourdas to go around most of Island would be better hiring a car . where in Lourdas are you staying we go 1st June for 2 weeks. Can recommend bar 360 views fantastic and run by some English friends. Great places to eat as well.

Car hire recommend venus we have used Kostas for anumber of years very reasonable.

If not hiring car do some day trips but book in village not with rep.

Hi there

A taxi would be a very expensive option for day trips, especially using Lourdas as a base as it's right down in the south of the island. A car rental is always going to be the best bet, around €25 a day for a small car.

Many thanks for all your feedback and recommendations. Usually on Greek Islands I've used a quad bike but this doesn't seem like a good idea in Kefalonia! I'm just hoping we find enough to do. We're staying in Aristomenis from June 25th, but have heard mixed reviews about the place. We're the get out and about type, so don't know how the owners will take us!

everyone likes to get out and about plenty to do loads of places to visit we go out and about everyday more or less odd day on Lourdas beach or morning on beach then off doing what ever we like, The owners will welcome you dont worry about that. Enjoy your stay.

Hi

We're also staying in Lourdas in the first week of June. We have two small children so hiring a car is essential. We are looking at Greekstones, Venus and Pefanis so far and Pefanis has been the cheapest so far. We stayed in Skala last time and loved it hired a car for 3 days out of 7 as we stayed local for the rest. Enjoy your holiday.

Cbr car rental is very good. You can pick a car up at their airport office or in Lourdas. We have been using them for the last 7 years.
