I used Welcome Pickups twice. On time and english speaking drivers.


On the island of Kos taxis are available 24/7, operate with fixed prices and offer comfortable and safe rides. Thus, they are by far the most convenient travel method to get from the airport to the port of Kos.

Editor’s Note

When taking a regular town taxi, make sure that you either agree upon a fixed price before you enter the vehicle or that the taxi meter is properly zeroed before the trip.

Useful Tips

It is advised to pre-book a taxi before you start your trip. Finding the right taxi at the last moment can be quite tedious, due to the high demand especially in the summer season.
Feel free to ask the driver for instructions about places and popular destinations since they are very knowledgeable of the island.

How to get from Kos airport to Port of Kos by bus

There is only a single bus network from the airport to the port of Kos. Since the Port is located at a walking distance from the town centre of Kos, the KTEL bus operating from the airport is the same one for both destinations.

Where do I get it from?

The bus is not the most convenient mean of transportation to get to the port of Kos when travelling with many pieces of luggage and children because of its unreliable schedule which can result in very long waiting times.

Editor’s Note

Bus drivers in Kos can usually speak sufficient English to answer any questions you may have about directions or the island in general.

Useful Tips

If you are a student, please carry your student ID on you, in case of an inspection.
The bus can sometimes be really crowded, therefore it is advised to keep an eye on your personal belongings.
