KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Sami

  • Car hire in Sami provides you with one of the best opportunities to take control of your vacation and spend time exploring the town and the rest of Cephalonia without trying to figure out local transport networks and schedules or haggling with taxi drivers on costs to get anywhere. You can drive out to Melissani Cave or visit Karavomilos Lake before spending the day soaking up the sun on Karavomilos Beach. All of this without having to wait for anyone else. There are also several towns and villages on the island that are a short drive away from Sami, such as Agia Effimia, Valsamata and Omala.
  • Companies providing car hire in Sami will also offer the same services at Kefalonia Airport, which is less than an hour's drive away and likely to be both your arrival point and departure point for your trip. Companies like Avis, Budget, Enterprise and Hertz operate from company desks located in the Arrivals Hall of the airport as you exit the Baggage Claim area. Booking online through KAYAK is the best way to save money and time, and have a company representative meet you at the airport to escort you to your vehicle.
  • If you're used to driving on the left-hand side of the road, it might take a bit of time to get used to driving on the opposite side. For the most part, you'll need to be aware of pedestrians walking into the road and motorcycles weaving in and out of traffic. The roads in the town can get quite narrow, and feel even more narrow because of the number of cars parked on the side of the road. Make sure you drive slowly and keep your eye out for obstructions in your path.
  • Driving in Sami is similar to driving in the rest of Greece and you'll be dealing with similar difficulties. Traffic flows on the right-hand side of the road but you'll often see local drivers on the wrong side of the road or making a u-turn without warning. Speeding isn't a problem but locals are known to overtake when they shouldn't. There aren't any traffic lights or roundabouts in the town and the only thing directing traffic are stop signs.
  • Book your car hire in Sami at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Sami are around 21% more expensive than other car types, on average
