With our generous baggage allowance, you can pack for all eventualities: hot days on the beach and cooler evenings dining outside tavernas. Discover all there is to do at one of the largest islands in Greece after just one easy flight.

Kefalonia flight FAQs

The flight from London Heathrow (LHR) to Kefalonia International Airport (EFL) is just under three hours and 25 minutes.

The cheapest months to visit Kefalonia during the summertime are in May and September – perfect for soaking up the island’s more relaxed atmosphere. To find the cheapest flights to Kefalonia, use our low fare finder.

Much more affordable than some neighbouring Greek islands, Kefalonia’s relaxed vibe and breathtaking scenery are easy to enjoy on a budget. Plan your trip during the shoulder season (May or September), when the temperatures are still in the mid-20s, and save on both flights and accommodation. Unassuming tavernas are a common sight on the island, making it easy to enjoy authentic Greek food that doesn’t break the bank.

When you touch down at Kefalonia International Airport (EFL), located on the south-west of the island, you’re only a 15 minute drive to the capital Argostoli, and an hour from the resorts around Skala in the south. Add a transfer to your hotel booking when you book your holiday with us, or jump in a taxi to reach your hotel. If you want to explore the island on your own time, the easiest and best way is by hiring a car.

Book a car hire with British Airways, and receive great benefits – with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support. Collect Avios on every rental.

As the largest Greek island in the Ionian Sea with 254 km of coastline, it’s easy to see why Kefalonia invites endless exploration. Famously featured in the Hollywood movie Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, take your pick from picturesque sandy beaches, pebbled coves and hidden bays or just soak in the warm, Mediterranean climate. Explore Petani Beach on the Paliki Peninsula or trek to Myrtos Beach for extraordinary views. The capital Argostoli is a charming and unpretentious town dotted with small shops, cafes and quayside seafood tavernas. Don’t miss the popular Drogarati Cave in Sami, discovered 300 years ago and featuring dramatic stalactites and rock formations in a natural subterranean cavern 37 metres below ground. If you’re feeling adventurous, Kefalonia is the perfect place to rent a scooter and explore the island’s spectacular countryside and rugged coastline. For those who want to just kick back and chill, Skala is one of the island’s most popular resorts (and originally a fishing village) offering everything from traditional Greek tavernas to cocktail bars and sandy beaches.
