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.
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.
ATTENTION: Taxi fares were significantly increased (after more than 12 years) on June 17, 2022 ! The minimum fare for a taxi ride will be increased from the previous €3.16 to €4.
The minimum fare includes an increase in the basic fare, which will rise from €1.19 to €1.80.
The price per kilometre will then be 90 cents (previously 68 cents) for journeys during the day and €1.25 (previously €1.19) for journeys between midnight and 5am.
According to the taxi drivers and the fare map still displayed at Heraklion Airport, the taxi fares will remain unchanged during the 2022 summer season despite these increased minimum fares !
The fixed taxi fares from Heraklion Airport will thus remain unchanged for 2022, depending on the destination, as follows:
Taxi fares from Heraklion airport to the east:
|Aghios Nikolaos||85 €|
Taxi fares from Heraklion airport to the west:
|Heraklion Center||11 €|
|Agia Pelagia||41 €|
|Chania airport||203 €|
Taxi fares from Heraklion airport to the southwest:
|Agia Galini||113 €|
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.
