KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Argostoli

  • The popular beach resort town of Argostoli is situated on a sheltered bay in southern Kefalonia, Ionian Islands, Greece. The island boasts some of the most famous beaches in the country and with car hire in Argostoli you have a vehicular passport to visit as many of them as you desire, both within the town and beyond. Myrtos Beach is a jewel some 18 miles north via Epard.Od. Faraklaton, while Skala Beach on the southern tip is about 22 miles away via Epard.Od. Argostoliou.
  • Kefalonia Airport is your destination if you want to visit Argostoli, and is a short 5-mile drive from the town. You can pick up car hire in Argostoli from one of several providers including Avis, Enterprise and Thrifty. The airport has a single terminal and the car hire centre is located in the arrivals hall, so it shouldn’t be difficult to locate if you follow the posted directions or ask for assistance at the information counter.
  • Leoforos Antoni Tritsi is the main road stretching along the entire eastern boundary of Argostoli. It attracts major vehicular congestion during morning and evening rush hours, especially near the Port of Argostoli, which is constantly active with ferry traffic. The same applies along the Bridge Argostoliou/De Bosset Bridge, which is the shortest access route to the rest of the island. Anticipate moderate to high pedestrian and cycle activity on a daily basis and watch out for weaving motorcycles which are common in Greece. June to September sees a huge influx of tourists which will further aggravate overall traffic patterns, especially on the western side of town where the best beaches are located.
  • There are three periods of high traffic activity in Argostoli. The busiest morning hours are likely to be from 08:00 to 10:00 downtown and on major roadways leading inbound and outbound from the town limits. 11:00 to 15:00 will witness a hive of activity with beachgoers, shoppers and tourists busy during the lunch period. The hours from 18:00 to 22:00 are the busiest evening hours, especially in peak summer, with returning beachgoers and dinner traffic downtown which may coincide with ferry arrivals at the port.
  • Book your car hire in Argostoli at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hire in Argostoli are around 79% cheaper than other car types, on average
