Trustworthy and personalised Santorini Port taxi services

Santorini is a shiny jewel on the crown of the Aegean Sea. One of the top tourist destinations in Greece, it attracts many visitors each year who wish to experience in person the irresistible views from the caldera, the magical sunsets at Oia, and the rich culinary and cultural adventure that the island offers.

The passenger ferry port of Santorini, called Athinios, is the island’s main entry point for those who don’t arrive by plane. It is located in the southwest, 8.5 km from Fira. After a long and tiring ferry journey, the last thing you would want is to stand in the crowded line of people who have just disembarked and are looking for a ride at the taxi rank. With a Santorini port taxi transfer, you can have a personalised and comfortable start to your Santorini holiday.

The Welcome Pickups pre-booking system takes less than a minute to secure a professional, friendly English-speaking driver who will wait for you at the port upon arrival. After they help you with your luggage, you’ll sit comfortably and enjoy the ride through the stunning Santorinian countryside. And on the way back, if you have a special request such as an early morning taxi to Santorini Port, you can just book that in advance too or ask the driver to help you arrange it before they drop you off at your chosen accommodation.

The centre of Fira is reachable within 200 m from there and your driver will take the fastest route available to your accommodation.

The cost of a Santorini Port taxi

Typically, Santorini taxis do not use a taximeter to calculate their fares. Before you board the vehicle, you must agree on a set rate with your driver, which depends on the time of the day, the number of luggage items, etc. In most cases, the cost of a cab ride from the port to Fira does not exceed €35.

If you want to have total peace of mind and know the exact cost of your ride in advance, you can pre-book your private Santorini Port taxi transfer with Welcome Pickups. That way, you’ll get a competitive flat fee with no hidden costs and a flexible cancellation policy.
