Is it possible to fly from Corsica to Sardinia?

We are looking at booking our first trip to these islands next September and did think we would hire a car in Corsica, spend a week there then drive to Bonifacio, hand the car in, get the ferry, then hire another car for our 2nd week in Sardinia. However there seem to be a few issues to sort on order to do this, like dropping a car at a different location from where you collected it, also the ferry seems to be 6am and that's too early to drop a car off.

So... We started thinking about a flight from Corsica to Sardinia but can't seem to find anything. Does anyone know if there is such a flight? Or has anyone any advice on how to do both islands in one trip.

Thank you

Can't you drop the car off the night before?

Eurowings only flies from Calvi to Cagliari on Saturdays. The fare for that short flight is an eye-watering €400.

You are much too early to be looking to book ferries for next September. There will be several crossings a day but they won't go on sale for a few months.

Auto Europe is a useless link as it won't show you the two car rental companies that are located in Santa Teresa - autonoleggiosardinya.com/rent_a_car_sardinia/ and justsardinia.it/index.php/en/car-rental/ Both highly recommended.

Otherwise you can take a bus to Olbia where you have a wide choice of rental companies.

Thank you. We have decided to book a couple of nights in Bonifacio so we will be able to hand the car back during opening hours.

Thanks DouglasDC8. That flight for €400 isn't even a direct flight so have given up that idea. Think we will have a car in Corsica but not bother on Sardinia.

You really will need a car in Sardinia to make the most of your visit. Unless you head over to Alghero and base yourselves there.

We have booked Alghero and read that a car is not necessary there.

I had already seen your excellent article on Alghero without a car, thanks for that.

Douglas DC8 you do know that those aircraft are obsolete
