Zakynthos Taxis

There’s so much to see on the beautiful island of Zakynthos. Stunning beaches, quaint towns and popular tourist spots are everywhere, and the best way to see it all is by taxi. Taking a Zakynthos taxi not only saves you time, but it’s also the most convenient and one of the safest modes of transportation on the island. Zante taxi drivers use both set-prices and taximeters to calculate the price of your journey, depending on where you’re travelling from or to. You can easily catch a taxi in Zakynthos by hailing one from the street, calling a local taxi company or walking to a taxi rank. 

Base fare – €3

Rate per km – €1.65

Zante taxi prices

As with many small tourist towns, Zakynthos taxi drivers widely stick to a set price table for popular journeys within and around the city. Having said that, some drivers do still use a taximeter based on distance to calculate your fee, so it’s best to double-check when you begin your ride. If your driver uses a taximeter, you will be charged using one of two tariffs, Tariff 1 applies during the daytime hours of 05:00 to 24:00 and Tariff 2 runs during the night, from 24:00 to 05:00.

Base fare – €3

Price per km Tariff 1- €1.65

Price per km Tariff 2 – €2.30

Keep in mind that your driver may add on costs for excess luggage (over the size of 55x40x20cm), wheelchairs, pushchairs and an hour waiting time (€8). Prices may also increase during major holidays and on weekends.

How to get a taxi in Zakynthos

You have a couple of options when taking a taxi in Zante. You can choose to hail one down in the street, walk to a taxi rank or call one of the local radio taxi companies. If you choose to hail down a Zakynthos taxi from the street, just make sure to raise your hand to an empty car and look for the official silver Zante taxis with the city emblem on the front door. 

If you’d prefer to walk to a taxi rank, you can find them dotted around the city at all the major tourist stops, popular beaches, the bus station, airport and Zakynthos port. You can spot the taxi ranks by looking for a long line of silver cars with the typical TAXI sign on top. 

Finally, if you’d prefer to wait out of the sun for your taxi or if you need to take a cab late at night, you can call one of the local taxi ranks. Two well known and reliable companies are:

Zante Taxi +30 26950 48400

Taxi Station +30 2695 048400

Booking your Zakynthos taxi in advance

If you prefer to budget your trip, plan your activities in advance or simply see as much as you can of the beautiful island of Zante during your vacation, booking your Zakynthos taxi in advance is the best option. To secure friendly, English-speaking drivers, amazing set-rate fees and reliable pick up times, we recommend booking your Zante taxi in advance with Welcome Pickups. 

Zante Taxi Tips

  1. Most Zante taxi drivers don’t speak English, so it’s important to write down your destination just in case.
  2. Make sure your driver resets his taximeter to the base fare of €3 before you begin your journey.
  3. Most Zakynthos taxi drivers don’t accept credit card payments, so keep change in Euros with you when taking a cab.
  4. It’s rare for a Zakynthos taxi driver to carry change for large bills, so we recommend keeping €10 and €20 bills with you.
  5. There may be extra charges to take your stroller, wheelchair or baby seat in the taxi, so be sure to check with your driver first.
  6. If you’re worried that your driver is taking the wrong route or is taking a longer route to overcharge you, be sure to check on Google Maps and then write down his ID and licence number and ask for your receipt at the end of the journey.
  7. Zakynthos taxi drivers don’t expect a tip, but it’s appreciated. If you feel like giving one, you can round up to the nearest Euro or add on 5% to your total fare.

Wheelchair Accessible Taxis in Zakynthos

Standard local taxis in Zakynthos don’t offer wheelchair ramps or lifts for wheelchair users. However, most do have space to store a folded wheelchair in the trunk of the car. If you need a fully wheelchair accessible taxi in Zante, we suggest contacting the local tour providers and radio taxi companies to ask if they have this service in advance. 

Zante taxi complaints and safety

As Zakynthos is a small island, taxis are very well monitored and are therefore considered fairly safe. Having said that, if you do experience any problems during your journey or feel you have been scammed by your driver, take down the taxi number, your driver’s ID number and ask for your receipt. You can then report them to the Zakynthos Tourist Police by visiting their office at 62, Lomvardou Street 29100, or calling them on +30 26950 24482-4.
