Pre-Booked Santorini Taxis & Transfers
The best way to get a private transfer or taxi in Santorini is to pre-book with Welcome Pickups. It’s about the same price as a pre-booked taxi and there will be someone waiting at the airport, ferry port, or hotel for you with a welcome sign. When you book, you receive a confirmation email with the photo of your driver so you know exactly who will be meeting you. Larger vehicles can be reserved for parties greater than four, and child car seats are available by request.
You can use Welcome Pickups from the Santorini Airport to the Santorini ferry port, from the ferry port to the airport, to and from Oia, Fira, and the beaches, or between any other two spots in Santorini.
Note: The Santorini bus system is excellent and as long as you have a little bit of patience it’s a great way to get around the island and save some money.

Santorini Taxi Phone Numbers
Write this number down. Then when you’re back home you can use the paper to start a campfire, because the chance of a taxi picking you up when you call is pretty close to zero.
