Getting around Corfu

Given the extent of the island, the best way to get around Corfu is undoubtedly the car or, alternatively, two wheels (much better than quads). You will not be subject to bus schedules, and, above all, you can turn at your leisure in search of the beach that best suits your needs.

If, on the other hand, it is your intention to spend most of the time exclusively in the capital, the bus is undoubtedly the recommended way because it allows you to move in complete tranquility around Corfu Town, and, just as easily, allows you to arrive from the airport or from the port to the city center.


Taking as a reference the splendid Monastery of Panagia, to the south, and Acharavi to the north (exactly the opposite), you have to travel a total of about 90 km. The car, therefore, remains the ideal way to move freely around the island. From Corfu Town almost to the center of the island, the main destinations can be reached in an hour.

Traffic and parking difficulties during the months of July and August are the only sore points to be taken into account. To remedy this, it is preferable to move in the early morning and late afternoon.

Corfu car rental prices are quite cheap. The main reference are the local companies, many of which offer a good fleet of cars and prices that are anything but prohibitive. It is always advisable to take out comprehensive insurance that protects against any unexpected events. Sunrise Car offers Corfu car rental with clear prices, full insurance for only €10 per day and no credit cards!

Corfu has no dirt roads or particularly prohibitive to be used in quads. Considering that they are not exactly fast vehicles, quads are probably to be avoided (unless you are a fan of this medium).

Much better to move around Corfu by scooter, preferring displacements from 125cc upwards. The costs are naturally lower than those of a car and, above all, you will not have to deal with parking and traffic problems. All over the island and especially in Corfu Town, you will find many local agencies with excellent prices.


Buses allow you to travel to all the main areas of the island, including the Port, Airport, Agios Ioannis and its interesting Aqualand. The public service is offered by KTEL and Corfu City Bus.

From Corfu to Sidari (Line A2), and vice versa, you pay €3.70

Frequencies, during the summer, can reach 20 minutes on weekdays, on the main lines. Keep in mind that, especially in the middle of August, the vehicles are always very crowded and you will have to queue up outside.


The fare system of the Capital is divided into only two zones: A and B. The ticket price for a single journey is €1.10 for a journey within ZONE A, and €1.50 for journeys in zone B. There is also a day ticket which at a cost of €5.00 allows you to make unlimited trips throughout the day.
