Make sure you choose a hire company who allow ferry travel to the mainland - & if they do check out any extra charges they may make for this. If you travel without permission you could be denied boarding & insurance would be invalid.

I agree with tsiporou.

Maybe it would be better to hire a car from the airport with dropoff at the ferryport, if you need one on Corfu, bearing in mind it's only a 15 euro, 5 minute journey in a taxi from the airport to the ferryport, and get a car delivered to the ferryport at Igoumenitsa from Parga. It would also save you about 80 euros for the car ferry ticket. Sandra at http://www.parga-carhire.com will be happy to do that for you.

Hi Spadge,

tispouro provides a good warning. You are likely to need permission to take the car off the island. If it's going to cost you extra for this permission, it might be just as economic to drive to the port from wherever you are staying, park up, just pay for yourselves to get across to Igoumenitsa and pick up a hire car for the day(s) whilst on the mainland. Plus, having watched the cars, buses, lorries, etc. reverse onto the ferry (in order to drive forward at the other end) it reminded me of sardines in a tin.

I would suggest hiring separately - Hire company in Corfu and one in Parga. Apart from the obvious hassle and cost of putting the car on the ferry - there's also the problem with when you will be crossing. If your holiday is in August the ferries get absolutely jam packed (like sardines) and you may find yourself waiting a long time. Also be prepared to have Greek men screaming at you how to park - I've even seen them get a woman (tourist) driver out of the car and parked it themselves in the ferry! Really think about hiring in both places. Igoumenitsa-Parga is an easy drive.

Most care hire companies we have used in Greece will not let you take a hire car to the Mainland. Although they do allow island to island - for example in Kefalonia we could take the car across to Ithaka but were not allowed to take to the Mainland. Probably easier to arrange two separate hires.
