Kefalonia International Airport

Everything you need to know before departing from or arriving to Kefalonia Airport

Transportation from Kefalonia Airport

Krystof Hajek updated 28. 11. 2023

If you arrive in Kefalonia as part of a tour purchased through a travel agency, you will be met at the arrivals hall by a delegate and a free bus that will take you directly to your hotel.

But how to get from the airport on your own?

Rent a car

Since you can't get anywhere by bus except the cities and you'd be missing out on the best parts of the island, we definitely recommend renting a car for your entire stay.

There are many car rental companies operating in the terminal, including large international companies.

Prices for a week's rental in high season start at 220 eur. Due to the limited capacity of car rental companies, we recommend booking at least 2-3 months in advance.

We recommend avoiding Add Car car rental due to very negative reviews.

KTEL buses

There is a regular "KTEL Kefalonias" bus service to the terminal from the bus station in Argostoli, from where other services take you to the larger villages.

The timetable does not correspond to flight times and buses only run twice a day in low season and 6-7 times a day during the summer.

On Saturdays and Sundays the buses do not run at all.

Detailed timetables can be found on the official website: There is a line to the airport, which you can find on the website under the name "ARGOSTOLI - MINIES - KOURKOUMELATA - METAXATA - LAKYTHRA - ARGOSTOLI".

The journey to Argostoli takes approximately 20 minutes.

A ticket for 2 eur purchase in cash from the driver.
