    Good morning:

    I wanted to know please, currently how much can cost me a taxi from Santorini airport to Fira, as the hotel offers us to pay €18 per way and do not know if it is better to accept or take a taxi (the haggling is not with me jejeje).

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Tamara, do not think that the price you have given is wrong, a taxi will cost you more or less that.

    You have two ways to save costs: one, share taxi with someone who goes to Fira once you land or two, take the bus line. But I tell you that the price they offer is more or less normal.

      Thank you for your answer!

  • Tamara

    Thank you very much Iñaki for your advice! 🙂

    Is that to see the price between 10-15 € for a taxi, and other forums also that transfers there are usually free if you spend more than 2 nights, did not know if they were taking advantage of us or not jejeje.

    A hug,
