The kantounia are Greek for the cobble stone streets that line the paths of Corfu's modern districts. More than likely, a traveler will eventually want to venture outside Corfu or late-night socialites may desire an alternative lead. Car rentals, taxis, motor boats, and buses are convenient means for accessing Corfu Island and points deeper within town.

The country regulates tariffs for all licensed taxi drivers. Licensed taxis display a rate card in the window or on the dash. If there is no rate card, proceed with caution and ask for the rate. Rural taxis are more expensive for one-way trips and waiting times accrue hourly. There is a 1.75 Euro minimum charge for licensed taxi driving. Expect the Corfu airport to town centre journey to take around 10 minutes and cost 13€.

Dinos Taxi Boat

Motor Boat
Motor boats do not require a license in any way. They simply require payment for the day's petrol and the ability to hold a steering wheel. Boats with elderly and young children, especially, should request a cabana for sun-protection. Dock at one of the nearby beachside tavernas for a refreshing drink and appetizer.

The local bus services do not adhere to a schedule and may change routes at a moment's notice. They should be saved for individuals knowledgeable in Greek language. However, KTEL is an excellent coach bus service that provides transportation to the major coastal cities. Take the bus from Corfu and enjoy an overnight party at the disco or visit quaint villages.

Mopeds are not recommended avenues for exploration, considering the disrepair of some roads. If this warning has tempted you further, think again. Then, if you still want a moped, make sure and bring a helmet from home. Most rentals do not provide good helmets and helmets are a necessity in this rocky territory.
