Greece Taxi Fares
One of the best ways to travel around any new destination you visit is by taxi. The ease by which they can deliver you from one tourist highlight to another in relative comfort is unparalleled and allows time and space to enjoy the trip, rather than worry about traffic or directions. In fact, these days many people forego the slow, cramped conditions of the tour operators transfer bus for the relative comfort of a private taxi from the airport to their hotel so they can start their holiday in comfort.
Travelling around Greece in no exception and getting around by taxi is easier than ever thanks to the sheer number of taxi drivers and the variety of size and shape of vehicles they use.
Athens, one of the most common destinations in Greece, use yellow taxi cabs like New York with an illuminated sign saying “TAXI” on the top. Elsewhere taxis can range in colour but all will have some marking that makes them stand out from regular vehicles.
Like most other places around the world, to stop a taxi in Greece you simply raise a hand and flag one down. If waving down a moving vehicle doesn’t suit you, then head over to a taxi rank (called piatsa in Greek), or you can speak to your hotel reception and get them to call the taxi company for you.
When it arrives don’t be surprised if the taxi already has a passenger inside or if the driver stops to allow other people to board during the ride. It is common to share taxis in larger cities in Greece.
How much does Greek taxi cost and are there any surcharges?
Greece is a large country made up of a mainland and hundreds of islands each with their own governing bodies, so pricing can vary quite a bit. Generally speaking, there is a minimum fare for short taxi rides of between €1.50 and €4 and once over this the price is dictated by a meter that charges based on distance. The cost per km can also vary wildly but in general will be somewhere between €0.60 and €1.50. Be aware that in some parts of Greece taxis will double their fares between midnight and 05:00 am. Also note that there can be an extra charge for picking up from places like ports, train and bus stations, and for transportation of luggage.
