Before you come to Kefalonia for a visit you will need to arrange a flight and accommodation. Fortunately there are plenty of airlines that offer flights (although currently there are no budget airlines flying to Kefalonia) and flights from the UK tend to cost from £200 per person upwards.
While this may appear expensive a holiday in Kefalonia is worth paying slightly more for, infact the extra cost has made Kefalonia a slightly “exclusive/luxury” island, largely unspoilt by mass tourism. In our experience Thomson flights are frequently the best value for money however Thomas Cook also offer reasonably priced flights. To find the flight best prices we recommend you check both Thomson and Thomas Cook as they operate the majority of flights to the island.
Accommodation in Kefalonia is easy to find however as an exclusive island, hotels and villas tend to be more intimate without the mass/huge resort hotels you may find in other countries. The most popular resorts in Kefalonia are Lassi and Skala and as the largest resorts both have a great range of accommodation.
All resorts in Kefalonia offer something for everyone with cheaper 2 star accommodation to very high end 5 star villas available. Wherever you chose to stay you will find an amazing beach close by and an array of swimming pools to use. Our staff scan the net to find the best range of hotels and villas from UK agents – to find the current pick please use the Kefalonia Holiday Guide on the homepage.
As Kefalonia is a greek island and Greece is in the Euro zone the currency of choice in Kefalonia is the Euro. You can check the current exchange rate from pounds to euros online here.
Medical facilities in Kefalonia are pretty good with many english speaking doctors and good hospital facilities available to take care of you should the worst happen. It is still wise to look at travel insurance for your trip though as cover can protect you and your family not only from medical bills but also it will cover things like lost luggage.

If you are not hiring a car during your trip you may like to book your airport transfer before you come as it will save you monay and will allow you to pay a fixed price rather than finding yourself at the mercy of the taxi meter.
