Pre-Booked Santorini Taxis & Transfers

Transfers in Santorini.

If you pre-book a taxi with Welcome Pickups there’ll be a driver waiting for you at the airport or ferry port. (The above photo is from the Athens airport but it looks similar to the Santorini welcome sign.)

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.

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.

Taxis in Santorini

Santorini Taxi Cost
Taxis in Santorini do not use a meter and prices are usually negotiated before starting your trip. If a price is not agreed upon you’ll pay whatever the taxi driver requests when you arrive at your destination. Taxi fares from the Santorini airport are 30€ to 40€ to Oia, 20€ to 30€ to Fira, and 25€ to 35€ to the ferry port. Fares increase in the evening and again after midnight.

Santorini Taxi Phone Numbers
Write these 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 after you call one of these numbers is pretty fucking close to zero.
Taxi Phone Numbers: 22860 or 22555 or 22860 or 23951

Taxis at the Santorini Ferry Port.

There are sometimes taxis waiting at the Santorini ferry port. Sometimes there aren’t. That’s the bus to Fira behind the taxis. There is always a Fira-bound bus for every arriving ferry. Sometimes there is an airport bus too.

Taxi station in Fira.

There are just 25 taxis in all of Santorini and they are very hard to come by. Your best bet is to hail one in the street as they are almost never waiting at the Fira taxi station.

Taxis at Santorini airport.

Taxis at the Santorini airport line up just outside of Arrivals. There are sometimes a few. Sometimes none. And often a queue to get one.

Taxis in Oia.

In Oia, taxis typically wait at the bus station. If your hotel calls a taxi they might come to a closer point to pick you up. Or they might not. It just depends whether someone else intercepts them on there way to you.
