Unbeatable prices for your Thessaloniki airport transfer

Is there anything better than getting off a long and wearying flight, having someone help you with your luggage and then sinking into the comfortable seat of your private vehicle? We didn’t think so! That’s why we suggest skipping all of the stressful public transportation and taking a Thessaloniki airport taxi to your hotel instead. 

As soon as your plane touches down, your friendly, English-speaking driver will be waiting for you just outside o the arrivals gate, holding a sign with your name on it. He will then proceed to help you carry your luggage to your pre-chosen vehicle. To make sure you’re worry-free during your Thessaloniki transfer, we provide your driver with live updates on your plane’s arrival time. So even if you’re delayed, he will always be there when you are.

While you make your way to the city centre of Thessaloniki, your driver will answer any questions you may have and share with you some of the best places to eat in the city and the top activities to do. Let Welcome Pickups take care of the stressful stuff, so all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your Thessaloniki airport transfer. 

You can still book a ride with Welcome Pickups to get around the city, hail a Thessaloniki Taxi down on the street, or find a taxi rank near one of the main tourist spots.

Directions for your Thessaloniki airport transfer

Thessaloniki’s Makedonia SKG airport is the only one offering international flights to the city and district of Thessaloniki. The distance from Makedonia airport to the city centre is 16km and the total journey should not take more than 25 minutes in a Thessaloniki airport taxi. To head to the city, your driver will take the airport highway and turn right onto the Thessalonikis Neo Moudanion highway, following this into the city. As you arrive in the city, the highway becomes Konstantinou Karamanli. Your driver will then leave this road and enter Egnatia Street, which is the central avenue of Thessaloniki, taking you directly to Aristotelous Square and towards your selected hotel. 

Why a Thessaloniki airport taxi is for you

Although taking a Thessaloniki airport taxi may be the most expensive transfer option, it’s also the most convenient, time-saving and hassle-free choice. You won’t need to battle your way through busy bus or train stations, waste precious moments of your vacation waiting in lines or putting your personal belongings at risk. Instead, you can walk off the plane, collect your luggage and hop into a private car that will whisk you off to your hotel in minutes. 

How much is a Thessaloniki airport transfer?

Thessaloniki airport taxi drivers all follow a highly regulated charging system based on a taximeter. You won’t be able to find a set-rate fee for your journey into Thessaloniki using a local taxi, as they charge each trip using a taximeter based on distance travelled.

Under normal traffic conditions, your Thessaloniki airport transfer shouldn’t cost more than 20 during the day (05:00 to 24:00) and 25€ at night (24:00 to 05:00). Having said that, please keep in mind that additional costs may apply for things such as excess luggage, number of people, travelling during holidays and transporting pets.
