Skyexpress flights from Corfu and Zakynthos to Kefalonia


You can also search for flights in Airtickets (a nice Greek site, also in English, for flights to/from Greece)



Bus from Athens

If you are coming from Athens, bus is another option. When you buy the bus ticket to Kefalonia, the ferry ticket is included (so, you shouldn't be concerned about ferry ticket, which port the ferry goes from/to, etc). The bus gets into the ferry and when it arrives to Kefalonia, it continues to Argostoli, the island capital. The trip takes around 7 hours.
If you decide to take the bus/ferry option, let us know, so we can help you with the reservation.
