Location information for Kefalonia


Kefalonia is one of the Ionian Islands off the Greek coast. The island offers much variety: beautiful beaches with clear blue water, especially Myrtos Beach and Sami Beach. These beaches can get crowded, but on Kefalonia you can also find smaller and quieter beaches such as Xi, Fiskardo, Assos and Petani. The island is mountainous and therefore you can enjoy nice walks and spectacular views. The highest peak on Kefalonia is the Megas Soros (1627 m). The spectacular Melissani Cave (actually an underground lake, formed by an earthquake) is centrally located on the island.


Kefalonia has a population of about 45,000, one third of which live in the capital Argostoli and another third in the second town of Lixouri.


Kefalonia lies off the west coast of Greece, in between the other Ionian Islands Lefkas (north) and Zakynthos (south). The island is situated in an earthquake zone. In 1953 most of the buildings were destroyed in an earthquake.


Only a small part of Kefalonia is suitable for agriculture. There are many olive groves and grains and vegetables are grown on a modest scale. Tourism is becoming more important for the local economy. The European Union has made money available to improve Kefalonia's infrastructure. This money is not only being used to improve the roads, but also to upgrade accommodations and other tourist facilities.


The island's airport lies ten kilometers south of the capital Argostoli. Especially in summer there are charters to many European cities, but in the rest of the year it is easier to fly to Kefalonia via Athens. Kefalonia Island International Airport is easily accessible by rental car via the Lassis Aerodromiou.

Public Transport

Kefalonia has bus services, but a very irregular one. It is much easier to explore the island with a rental car.

Traffic and Parking

In the major cities and tourist resorts it can be difficult to find a parking space for your rental car. When there is a solid yellow line, it is prohibited to park there. Along some busy streets you can park on one side of the road during even months and on the other side in odd months. Read the instructions! On country roads you should drive carefully. The roads are narrow and curvy and you could encounter herds of sheep or goats.


There are (still) relatively few hotels on Kefalonia, most accommodations are apartments or villas (often with a private pool). The most popular (and busiest) holiday resorts can be found in Lassi and Skala. Quieter resorts are located in the north of the island, near the picturesque towns Fiskardo and Assos. If you would like to visit Kefalonia in summer, we recommend booking your accommodation well in advance.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
