Driver requirements

What age do I need to be to hire a vehicle in Kefalonia?

Generally, you can hire a car in Kefalonia if you’re 21 years old and have held a full driving licence for at least 12 months. If you’re under 25, you’ll be subject to a ‘young driver fee’. Car categories will also be restricted.

What do I need to hire a vehicle in Kefalonia?

You will need your driving licence, a credit card or debit card that is valid and in your name, and another form of ID – so bring your passport when you pick up your car. An International Driving Permit is not required if you hold a UK licence.

Do I need car hire excess insurance in Kefalonia?

It’s not necessary to have car hire excess insurance in Kefalonia, but it’s something you should seriously consider. If you don’t have it and you find yourself having to make a claim, you’ll have to pay the agreed amount of excess – and this can be very expensive. A standalone third-party policy is generally cheaper than those offered by car hire companies at the desk.

Can I rent a car with a debit card in Kefalonia?

Some car hire companies in Kefalonia do accept debit cards. Others will only take credit cards. When you search and compare deals online, you’ll be able to see what your options are, as well as what terms and conditions they come with.

Which rental companies are available at Kefalonia Airport?

The following car hire companies can be found in arrivals at Kefalonia Airport: Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz and Thrifty.

Is it cheaper to rent a car at the airport or off site in Kefalonia?

Generally, if you factor in an ‘airport surcharge’, off site is cheaper in Kefalonia. However, compare in advance online and you’ll find similarly priced deals for car hire at the airport and off site.

Can you rent a car in one city in Kefalonia and drop it off in another?

Yes, one-way rentals are possible in Kefalonia. Be aware that the ability to pick up a hire car in one location on the island and drop it off in another does come with an additional cost.

Can you rent a car the same day in Kefalonia?

Yes, you can hire a car the same day in Kefalonia. It’s cheaper to do this online, as you can compare a range of deals. Pay on the day and you can expect walk-up rates.

Can I hire a vehicle at 21 years of age in Kefalonia?

Yes, if you’re 21, you can hire a car in Kefalonia. But as you’re classed as a young person (under 25), an extra fee will be added and you’ll be restricted to certain types of car. Also, your driving licence needs to have been valid for at least at least a year.
