Taxi Fares

Taxi fares starting from the airport Heraklion for the summer season 2019.

Buses and taxis

Tourist hotel transfer buses and taxis at the airport of Heraklion.

Directly when you leave the airport building of Heraklion after arrival, you stand in front of the taxi stand. The taxi drivers are willing to bring guests to every imaginable destination in Crete. Especially with 3 or – with children 4 – people this can be faster, cheaper and above all more comfortable than by bus.

Of course, it may be easier and cheaper for longer distances and shorter stays of about 7 days, to rent a car direct at the airport from one of the various car rental agency.

The fixed taxi fares (in Euros) depending on the target and are unchanged since 2016 and as follows:

Taxi fares from Heraklion airport.

It should also be noted that on the less ‘hectic’ days, especially at the beginning and end of the season, a cheaper fare can be negotiated if you do not give too much the impression that you wishes to go at any case by a taxi.

  1. Any way to get taxi rates from Chania to the rest of Crete? Most commercial cheap flights tend to land there.

    • Don’t know the airport of Chania rates, but you should have an idea by calculating the distances in relation from Heraklion. Should be around the same.
