Directions from Samos Airport (SMI)
Samos International Airport (SMI) is also known as Aristarchos of Samos airport, after the great ancient astronomer and mathematician who was born in Samos. It’s a rather small airport which hosts national flights throughout the year but only seasonal (May to October) international routes. Located at 15km from Samos town, the total taxi ride takes about 20-30 minutes, according to the traffic conditions. After exiting the airport and reaching the roundabout, your driver will take the third exit to Samos and in about 1 km, he will turn right to L. Logotheti str. He will continue following this road and after 11km he will take the exit to National road Vathiou-Choras. Finally, after two right turns, your driver will turn right once more to Sofouli str and from that point, he will use the local roads to reach your hotel.
The Best Taxis at Samos Airport
Taxis at Samos airport are constantly available during the operation hours of the airport. However, as there are no set fares, it is extremely simple to get overcharged by the local drivers. Communication problems may also occur and extra charges can apply for waiting time, heavy pieces of luggage or late-night driving.
But you can avoid all of this headache. Welcome taxis offer you the best value for money services and operate a totally hassle-free and convenient transfer to the town of Samos. All you have to do is book your taxi ride in advance, go to the meeting point at the airport and let your driver handle everything else!

Taxi Fees from Samos Airport
