Taxi Fares

Taxi fares starting from Heraklion airport ‘Nikos Kazantzakis’ on Crete.
Hints for taxi shuttles in Crete and the routes in eastern direction via Chersonissos and Malia to Sitia, in western direction to Chania and Kissamos and in southwestern direction via Matala to Palechora.

Buses and taxis
Tourist hotel transfer buses and taxis at the airport of Heraklion.
Directly when you leave the airport building of Heraklion after arrival, you stand in front of the taxi stand. The taxi drivers are willing to bring guests to every imaginable destination in Crete. Especially with 3 or – with children 4 – people this can be faster, cheaper and above all more comfortable than by bus.

Of course, it may be easier and cheaper for longer distances and shorter stays of about 7 days, to rent a car direct at the airport from one of the various car rental agency.

Important note for the ‘Corona’ season 2020: It is mandatory for masks for driver and passengers and a maximum of two passengers may be carried in the taxi.

It should also be noted that on the less ‘hectic’ days, especially at the beginning and end of the season, a cheaper fare can be negotiated if you do not give too much the impression that your wishes to go at any case by a taxi.

    1. Don’t know the airport of Chania rates, but you should have an idea by calculating the distances in relation from Heraklion. Should be around the same.
