Useful Alexandroupoli Taxi Tips
- Not all taxis accept credit or debit cards in Greece. If you want to pay by card, then we advise asking the taxi you call in advance if they can send a vehicle with an installed POS machine.

- Always ensure the taximeter is on and set to the correct base fare, before starting your trip.
Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles in Alexandroupoli
Alexandroupoli as a whole is not a very wheelchair-accessible city. This is why regular taxis you will find driving on the streets don’t have any special ramps or seating for wheelchair users. However, if you’re comfortable folding up your wheelchair, there’s plenty of space to store it in normal taxis. If you need a fully accessible vehicle, you can contact Taxi Faros by calling +30 25510 33500 and specifying you need an AMEA wheelchair-accessible vehicle.
Safety and Complaints for Alexandroupoli Taxis
Most taxi drivers in Alexandroupoli are polite, honest and friendly so it’s unlikely for issues to arise. However, as service quality depends on the company and individual driver, if you believe your driver has taken a longer route, you have been overcharged or you have felt uncomfortable or unsafe at any point during your ride, you should write down the taxi number and driver’s unique ID number and ask for your receipt. Then you can contact their company directly to discuss your experience, or if you wish, head to Alexandroupoli Tourist Police and file a report.
