Kalamata Taxi Tips

  1. Tipping in Kalamata is not obligatory but it is always appreciated if you received good service.
  2. Make sure that the metre is on before entering the taxi and that it is reset to the correct base fare for your safety.
  3. Not all Kalamata taxis accept credit/debit cards, so it's recommended to check with your driver before getting in the taxi, or if calling for a pickup, you may request they send a vehicle equipped with a POS machine.

Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles in Kalamata

Kalamata is becoming more wheelchair accessible with time, however, the regular taxis you will find driving in the streets don’t have special ramps, lifts or plenty of space for wheelchair users. If you’re comfortable folding up your wheelchair, there’s plenty of space to store it in a standard taxi.

If however, you need a fully accessible vehicle, you can contact Radiotaxi Kalamatas at +30 2721 021112 and ensure you specifically request a wheelchair accessible vehicle or simply reach out to AMEA Taxi stating your location. It’s worth booking this service 24-48 hours ahead of time to ensure availability.

Safety and Complaints for Kalamata Taxis

Kalamata taxi drivers are usually polite and honest, however, as the service you receive completely depends on the company and the driver, if you come across someone not using their taximetre or you feel unsafe or uncomfortable at any point, you should note down the taxi plate number and driver’s unique ID number and ask for your receipt. Then you can head to the local Tourist Police Station to file a complaint.
