Car rental

Renting a car is a less expensive option if you want to discover Corfu Island and don't like spending time in one place. This is because many beaches or smaller resorts can't be reached by bus at all, or only 1-2 times a day.

Expect prices in the summer season from 380 eur, and in the low season from 250 eur. In the low season, Corfu car rental prices drop to less than half. Where is the best place to book a car?

Public transport bus

Corfu Town (Kerkyra), 2.5 km away, is served by bus line 15 of Corfu City Bus (the so-called "Blue Buses").

The buses go to the city centre, the main harbour and stop at the intercity bus station Green buses, from where you can go to all corners of the island.
