The best Chania Airport taxi service
The island of Crete is one of the most popular tourist destinations and a great place for soaking up some sun. However, it’s not so great when it comes to travelling from the airport, as taking public transport usually involves waiting in long queues. Instead, why not begin your vacation with a relaxing Chania Airport transfer by booking a private taxi?
The moment your plane touches down at Chania Airport (CHQ), your driver will be waiting for you just outside of the arrivals hall exit doors, holding a sign with your name on it. After a warm greeting, they will give you a hand with your luggage and lead you to your pre-selected Chania Airport taxi. If your flight is delayed, there’s no need to panic – we provide our drivers with live updates on delayed flights to ensure that they are waiting for you when you land.
During your Chania Airport transfer, your English-speaking driver will answer any questions you may have about Crete and even share a few local tips so you can make the most out of your stay on the island. With all your transfer needs taken care of by Welcome Pickups, all that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the scenic ride.
While on the island of Crete, you can still book your rides with Welcome Pickups or grab a local Crete taxi by hailing one from the street, walking to a taxi rank or calling a radio taxi company.
