There are scant public transfers from Kefalonia Airport, which means that you will most likely need to make alternative arrangements to get to your accommodation. Some Kefalonia hotels will provide transfers, either free or for a small extra cost, in which case you can plan to meet the driver holding a sign bearing your name in arrivals.
Otherwise, you will need to get a taxi. There is a rank located just outside the terminal entrance at Kefalonia Airport and you usually won’t have to wait long.
There are fixed fares for routes between the airport and major island destinations such as Argostoli and Lassi, which you can see on price lists displayed on taxi windshields. If you are going outside of these destinations, agree the fare with the driver before you leave.
While public transport options are somewhat lacking, KTEL runs several bus services in Kefalonia, most of which depart from the central bus station in Argostoli. Most of the key island destinations, including Sami, Lassi and Fiskardo, are covered by KTEL bus routes. And with fares running for just a few euros, it’s a very cheap way of getting around Kefalonia. But beware: departures are infrequent and schedules can and do change.
Due to the irregularity of Kefalonia’s bus services, it is pretty much inevitable that you will need a taxi at some point. The central taxi station can be found in Argostoli’s Vallianos Square, while you will also be able to find taxis on the busier streets in the bigger resort areas.
Outside of the more populated regions, have a taxi company number to hand or ask your hotel to pre-arrange a lift for you – and be aware that it is common practice in Kefalonia to share taxis, and you are unlikely to get any say in the matter!
