Things to Do


Hotel Pickup ‒ First of all, you should verify if the hotel of your preference provides free pickup from the airport. Most hotels will probably charge you for this service but again you ought to consider this option as it constitutes the most convenient and untroubled way for your transfer. Check which hotels offer Free Airport Shuttle and which ones offer Airport Shuttle upon request.

Taxi ‒ The easiest and quickest way to get to Fira or any other settlement from the airport is by taxi. Taxi rates vary according to the season, and are increased during the night, between 01:00 and 05:00. Most of the times it is cheaper than the hotel pickup but remember to ask the taxi driver beforehand. Keep in mind that during the high tourist season you may have to wait in a long queue and share a taxi with strangers. That’s the reason why the hotel pickup remains the most convenient choice. Taxis are available 24/7 outside the arrivals gate at the airport.

Bus ‒ Taking the bus from the airport is definitely the most inexpensive option any time of the year. There are some other factors that you should consider, though. Santorini has got a good local bus network but the schedules differ from summer to winter. There are frequent itineraries during the high season but the bus service doesn’t run on a regular basis during winter. You can always find the bus schedule outside the airport. Also, notice that if you want to go anywhere else rather than the capital Fira, you will have to change buses at Fira as it is the main bus station.

Airport Transfer ‒ For those who do not wish to take a bus or a taxi from the airport, in order to avoid queues, delays and troubles there are airport transfer services. You can choose between shared minivan and bus rides, and private transfers with a driver. Of course these high-quality, reliable and comfortable transfers cost more than the conventional ones. Make sure you find reasonable prices and book in advance.
