Corfu Car Rental
Compare & Save on car rental in Corfu
Corfu, known also as Kerkyra, is the northernmost of the Ionian Islands in Greece – and is also the greenest. Home to endless olive groves, this surprisingly sedate island is one of beautifully contrasting landscapes just waiting to be explored. To the north the island is wilder and more mountainous, with pebble beaches, while to the south the beaches become sandier and the landscape more verdant. There are heavily touristy spots along the coast at pockets of resorts, but hop in the car and off the beaten track and you’ll find a whole other undiscovered island that you can make your own.
Things to Do in Corfu
An absolute must-see for any visitors to Corfu is Corfu Town itself. Quite rightly, the older north-eastern part of the town has recently been granted UNESCO World Heritage status, and easily stands up to such stunning World Heritage counterparts as Venice and Dubrovnik. Those looking for an idyllic seaside escape should head to the west coast of the island, where you’ll find some of the best sand beaches in Greece to explore.

Music, market stalls and traditional food abounds, and you’ll see posters advertising the latest fairs around the Corfu. Families visiting with small children might want to check out Aqualand too – a fun waterpark packed with slides and rides for kids of all ages.

Drive Around Corfu
While Corfu is served by two main bus services, these are limited, and tend to halt early in the day, so to truly explore renting a car in Corfu through GoCarRental.com is advisable. You’ll find car rental pick-up points in the town itself, at ferry ports, major resorts, and at the airport too. Opt for a smaller car if you can as island roads can be narrow, and booking ahead online will tend to get you a far better rate.
