"From Airport to OIA" Transportation From The Airport Tip by INSULARIUS


I fully understand that EUR 30,00 might sound quite expensive, but this is Santorini!After having made some calculations, I think the price is right!I am going to explain that to you:

Although I have not ever taken a taxi to Oia, I can tell you that a normal price, if you want to take a taxi from Fira (the capital of Santorini) to Oia, should be around 15-20 Euros.From Fira to the airport should be around 5-8 euros.It depends on the number of your suitcases, but for a piece of suitcase, plus a small bag, should be at least 1 Euro.Plus 3 Euros charge, for taking a taxi from the airport.If you sum up all those amounts, they make more than 30 Euros!

You do not mention at what time are you going to arrive at the Santorini Airport! If it is after midnight, the principle of "the double tariff" is applied, so in that case, it would cost you more than 30Euros!

I think that the price is right! All those professional hotel owner, they know their job very well, so they do not cheat!

In your case, as you are going to stay at their hotel, it would be fair to ask for a small "reduction" of the price: 25 Euros would be perfect.But, even 30 Euros, though quite expensive, sounds reasonable.It is always better that somebody is waiting for you, instead of searching for a taxi!

Good luck and enjoy your holidays in Santorini.
