The cost of transfer in Greece
What is the difference between a taxi and a transfer? You can hire a taxi right in the street or request it via a telephone. A transfer is booked beforehand. That’s why the prices may vary significantly. The scheme of their calculation is different.
How is the cost of a transfer calculated in Greece
The cost of a transfer depends on two factors – the distance and a class of vehicle. You can find many price lists of the most popular tours with calculated and fixed costs. You can learn more about the prices of 2018 — 2019 after you fill out the points of departure and destination in our form of booking.
“Pay additional attention that the indicated price will be fixed stone and won’t change upon any reason».
The indicated price of a transfer includes all the necessary services. Taxi drivers usually apply additional costs for them. The range of transfer services is diverse:
- multilingual drivers;
- multilingual customer support service;
- a car seat for a child of three types;
- transfer service operates throughout Greece (not within defined regions);
- free Wi-Fi;
- the absence of strangers in a vehicle;
- a vehicle is served right at the indicated time;
- waiting time;
- help with luggage;
- help with check-in, etc. (if needed)
How is the cost of a taxi calculated in Greece
The prices for transportation by taxi are rather democratic in Greece. The cost of a trip can differ due to the time of the day, and the type of relief in the area (within the line of the city or beyond its borders). There are fixed tariffs for a trip to or from the airport. However, there are some nuances, which significantly influence the final payment.
What are the constituents of transportation by taxi:
- fee for landing is 1.3 euro;
- the cost per 1 kilometer:
1. within the city lines “Tariff 1” 0.75 euro at daytime/1.7 euro at night and on public holidays;
2. beyond the city lines “Tariff 2” 1.3 euro at daytime/2.6 euros at night and on public holidays;
- booking a taxi through a mobile telephone (via mobile application): approximately +2 euros;
- request for a car for a specific period of time: + 3-6 euros;
- booking a taxi to the airport/railways station: +3.20 euros;
- for each piece of luggage exceeding 10 kilos: + 0.5 euros;
- a car seat for a child: +5 euros;
- waiting of a customer: + 12 euros per hour.
At the same time, there is a lot of unpleasant surprises. A driver may speak only Greek. In spite of the official prohibition, they can take extra passengers and take the same price (the same price is applied from all passengers). If you won’t be lucky enough to avoid traffic jams, you will also have to pay a lot for the out-of-time service. Furthermore, you cannot choose a vehicle that meets your need: the car, which stands in the line first, goes first.
The necessary address is a totally new story. To know the name of a settlement, the necessary street and a number of a house is not enough for a foreign traveler. You should know more about a selected area and its districts. Why? Because it often occurs that the same name of the street is seen in different districts. One couldn’t stay sure that a taxi driver will know which one he should choose exactly to deliver you in, even if he heard the address correctly. He might give you a lift due to the indicated address, but might be wrong with a district.
And the last thing a foreign traveler rather often forgets about is a great love of the Greek to strikes. Rather often, tourists cannot use a taxi service because of strikes. No money can make a Greek taxi driver move from the point. They have a strike and that is all you have to know!
