Has anyone hired a car for a few days from Igoumenitsa port?
 
We are intending to get the ferry over from Corfu as foot passengers and we want to visit Dodoni and Ioannina.
 
Experiences, hints and tips welcome.

I'm sure that someone did this last year - but I can't remember who, but there are a number of the major hire companies around the port.
 
You could consider taking your Corfu hire car over to the mainland - some hire comapnies will allow this (usually for an extra charge).  You do need to check exactly what you are getting for your money - for example would breakdowns be covered and so on.  We did  this a few years ago and it worked well.

A house guest of ours last year, flew to Corfu stayed with us for a few days, caught the ferry to Igoumenitsa where he hired a car (pre-booked from France where he lives), drove down to Prevesa where he had appointments then spent a further week doing Epirus sights before dropping it off back at Igoumenitsa, ferry back to Corfu where another hire car was waiting for him at the port, drove to the airport to pick up his family, then back to us.
All organised on the internet.
Easy.

Much easier, and cheaper, to hire in Igoumenitsa for mainland driving.

Apart from anything else think of the hassle and waste of time if you broke down on the mainland in a Corfu car!

You will find several car hire offices near the port. we pre booked with Budget, very good service were met at port (in torrential rain)  by Gregory whose wife is from leeds and sister-in-law runs the small refreshment kiosk inside the port. Excellent service and on departure we left the car inside the port and keys at the kiosk.

Thankyou all for the responses, I will look into pre-booking a car.
