Travel to Kefalonia
Thanks to the fact that Kefalonia has an International Airport it is as easy as pie to get here, either by charter flights, or if you prefer to travel independently.
BY CHARTER FLIGHTS
It is possible to go on a package holiday from many countries, check with a travel agency in your country. Popular charter destinations are: Argostoli, the peninsula of Lixouri, Lassi and Svoronata near the airport.

BY INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS
The easiest way is of course to buy a spear seat through a charter company directly to Kefalonia. If it is not possible to buy a spear seat, you can fly to Athens, Preveza (near Lefkada) or Zakynthos.
Zakynthos is the next best option. Take a taxi (about € 50) from Zakynthos Airport to Agios Nikolaos in the northeast, and travel on by ferry to Pesada in southern Kefalonia.

If you are flying to Athens, you can go by bus to Killini on Peloponnese, and from there continue by ferry to Kefalonia. If you choose Preveza it becomes complicated: expensive taxi trip to Vasiliki on the south of Lefkada and continue by ferry to Fiskardo on Kefalonia. As you can see, it is easiest to fly directly to Kefalonia.
BY DOMESTIC FLIGHTS
Kefalonia has daily flight connections with Athens.
Buses run from Athens to Kefalonia and vice versa three times a day. (Of course, you have to go by ferry as well.)
The port of Sami on the east Kefalonia.
There are five ports on Kefalonia: Argostoli (to/from Killini), Fiskardo (Ithaca and Lefkada), Pesada (Zakynthos), Poros (Killini) and Sami (Ithaca, Corfu, Patras, Killini and Igoumenitsa).
