Taxi Transfer from Athens Airport to City

 

Taxis are available at the designated Taxi waiting area, queuing outside of the arrival terminal between exits 2 and 3. 

There is a flat fare/cost from Athens Airport to the City Center, click here for the city center map.

The cost is 38€ for daytime and 54€ for nighttime and includes all applicable charges, gratuity is optional.

The cost of your transfer to the city can be more or less if your destination is outside the city ring, in that case you will pay what is written on the meter.

There are two possible routes to reach the city center. The fastest route is via Attiki Odos, a newly build motorway. You can also reach the city center by using the coastal road Leof. Posidonos, just keep in mind that there might be traffic during rush hours.

Athens Welcome Pickups

The last few years, there is a 5-star reviewed company offering pre-booked transfers with the best, English-speaking drivers of the city named Welcome Pickups.

You can pre-book here. They assign a driver for you and send you all his personal details at your email including name, photo and phone number. Drivers are waiting inside your arrival gate. What is great about Welcome Pickups is that it costs the same as a regular taxi from the line outside the Airport and you avoid any extra fees or a bad driver experience.
