Transport from Athens to Lefkada


We are flying into Athens Airport and need to get to Lefkada on Saturday 1st September. We will probably get to Athens on the 28th or 29th August.

The flights appear only to be quite late at night. What is our best option by bus if the flights don't work out please? I read somewhere that some of the bus times are Express and others are not. Is it possible to stop off halfway somewhere interesting for the night, or best just to go straight through?

Any thoughts whether a one way car hire is possible?

Appreciate any help - I have done quite a bit of research but I don't feel confident and hope that someone "on the ground" may be able to help.

Thank you!

You take the Athens - Lefkada bus direct (not the Preveza). It's approx 6hrs but it goes quickly - there's a stop at Rio bridge for 15mins.
