1. Before boarding the summer ferry from Agios Nikolaos to Pessada in Kefalonia, check that your rental policy allows for the vehicle to be taken off-island. Note that there’s also a southern beach called Agios Nikolaos, so don’t mix them up.
2. As with much of Greece, locals drive fast on Zante, and often perform hair-raising overtaking manoeuvres. If a queue builds up behind you, try to keep as far to the right side as possible.
3. Ahead of red traffic lights, warning lights will flash orange to encourage you to slow down.
