Santorini Airport Car Rental

RentalCars.com is the best site for reserving a rental car from the Santorini airport. Book in advance and your car will be waiting at the airport for you – literally, a 30-second walk from the arrivals door. You can also read my specific advice for renting a car in Santorini.

Santorini Airport Bus

Airport bus service runs from the airport parking lot to Fira and costs €1.80. There’s plenty of room for luggage and the bus is air-conditioned. The trip takes 10 minutes. To get to other villages (Firostefani, Imerovigli, Oia, Kamari, Perissa, Perivolos, Akrotiri) you’ll switch buses in Fira (and buy a separate ticket).

There are 11 buses every day to Fira, departing from the Santorini airport at 06:10, 07:20, 10:10, 11:10, 12:10, 13:10, 14:10, 16:40, 17:10, 18:10, 20:10.

There are no night buses from the Santorini airport to Fira.

In high season there can also be a bus between the airport and ferry port but this isn’t always a certainty.

Santorini Airport Taxi

There is a taxi stand outside the arrivals hall of the Santorini airport. But (depending on the time of day) there aren’t always taxis. Be prepared to queue and wait.

Santorini Airport Transfer

Most hotels will pick you up from the airport but it will cost more than a taxi and probably more than one day of a rental car.
