"We just did the package thing,..." Greece Transportation Tip by teflon1961

Greece Transportation: 232 reviews and 175 photos


We just did the package thing, albeit last minute.

We went to Kos at 10 hours notice at a cost of 180 each, including Insurance and transfers.

We went to Corfu at 3 days notice for 160 including insurance, transfers and the now, newly installed airport security tax.

Both times we had excellent flights with good service and inflight meals, but AT ALL COSTS avoid early morning flights from the resort to home. The airports are fairly sparce and the queues are endless at 3:00 in the cold of the morning.

We did incur a 10 hour delay from Corfu back to Birmingham, but who can complain...that's the luck of the draw...
Mopeds are okay if you're brave and taxis are okay if you're rich

If you're not, like us... then car hire or bus at a push... and you probably would end up doing just that!!

Our car, which was the smallest Seat, cost around 60 for 4 days, the petrol is cheap and we even got a refund for the half tank we didn't use.
