Athens Airport taxi flat rate

Official Athens Airport taxis calculate fares using a taximeter. This means your final fare will be based on the distance travelled, time of day, and so on. However, they do offer fixed fares for routes to and from the city centre. So if your hotel is located in downtown Athens, the fare will always be the same.

That being said, the price you pay depends on which vehicle you choose, the time of travel, and the final destination. The airport taxi service provides standard taxi vehicles that fit 4 passengers, vans for up to 8, and minibuses for groups of up to 14.

For instance, the 30-minute drive in a sedan from Athens Airport to the city centre costs €40 during the day and €55 at night (00:00-05:00). Likewise, you’ll pay €75 and €95 respectively for a minivan, or €105 and €135 for a minibus. Alternatively, a sedan to Piraeus Port will cost €60 during the day and €68 at night, whilst you’ll pay €85 and €102 for a minivan. Finally, a minibus is priced at €130 daytime and €148 nighttime.

To secure a competitive fixed fare with no hidden fees to any destination of your choice, you can pre-book your Athens Airport taxi with a trusted global provider like Welcome Pickups.
