Directions for your Kos airport transfer
Hippocrates Airport, also known as Kos International Airport (KGS), is the main airport on Kos island, hosting both domestic and international flights. The shortest route from Kos Airport to the Town of Kos is 23.7 km, so your Kos airport transfer should take approximately 30 minutes. Once your taxi exits the airport compound, your driver will turn right at the second round-about and merge onto the Kos-Kefalou highway. Your driver will head straight until the highway becomes Leoforos Grigoriou V, before entering the town of Kos. From here, they will use the smaller local roads to reach your accommodation.
Is a Kos airport taxi for you?
The safest and most convenient transfer option from Kos International airport to your hotel in the town of Kos, or any other destination on the island, is a Kos airport taxi from Welcome Pickups. What makes Kos airport taxis a better option than public transportation, is the outstanding customer service offered 24/7 and the reliable, on-time pickups. By choosing a Kos airport taxi, you also ensure the security of your personal belongings and any children you may be travelling with.
Kos airport taxi prices
The local taxis at Kos International airport use a taximeter to calculate the fee of your journey, rather than offering a set-rate. You can expect to pay around €47 for the journey from Kos airport to the town centre of Kos. Keep in mind that your driver may charge you for things such as excess luggage, time of day and vehicle type, on top of your fare. To avoid these extra charges and to have the security of a set-rate fee, we recommend booking your Kos airport transfer in advance with Welcome Pickups.
