I have driven to Corfu the last two years and its not the cheapest way to do
it but it does give you more fexibiliy once you arrive in Corfu its great to
be able to drive anywhere on the Island.
As I said Ive done it twice thinking about again this year probably
the same as the last two years end of may the same as you.
If your planning on staying for a while this is the best time to go
as if you can get rooms on a monthly basis is a lot cheaper.
The first time I drove from Dover to Calais last time I did Dover Bologne
this route with speedferries was alot cheaper.
The most direct and fastest routes are the motorways but these are all toll
roads. I drove through France down to Switzerland then through Italy
down from milan to venice again a tollroad.
Venice to Corfu with Minoan Ferries 24hour crossing`.
Usually leaves Venice at 2PM and arrives in Corfu around the same time
the follwing day.
The ferries can be booked on the net you get booking conformations
and pick your tickets up at the ports
ON the Minoan ferry you have a choice of deck ats or cabin
Deck just that the ats is aircraft type seats these seats you can push back as you would in an aircraftfor for sleeping on are in large rooms which have a tv and showers ar just down a passage from these.
You can get a discount on the ferry fare if you belong to a motoring organisation aa /rac ect.
You can avoid the tollroads which will take longer but save you money
I took the tollroads as I had pre booked my ferry and wanted to make sure
I got there on time.
I have satnav and would make more use of it this time it does make it very
Petrol is not that much cheaper in france and italy but very cheap on Corfu.
I drive a Vectra V6 so petrol was my biggest expence as I was driving on
on my own as your sharing this will make it cheaper and easyier on the
