Arranging airport transfers in Greece isn’t difficult. Many tour operators and independent hotels offer their own complimentary transfers to and from Greece’s airports. You can also pre-book your own transfers ahead of time with a private hire firm, or simply flag a taxi at the airport.
Taxis should be clearly marked and will be lined up outside the arrival doors of the airport. Just remember to negotiate the fare before getting in: taxis in Greece are generally fairly cheap, but many drivers ignore the meter so it’s safer to fix a price from the start.
Fares are controlled, so there should be a fixed price for your journey. But don’t be shocked if a taxi driver picks up other passengers along the way – this is perfectly normal in Greece and your fare won’t be affected.
Buses are a cheap and convenient way of getting around Greece. Prevalent on the islands, they can get very busy during peak daytime hours, particularly late in the afternoon when everyone at the beach decides to head back to their hotel.
The main bus operator is KTEL and unlimited-travel day tickets are available on most islands for about €5. Route schedules are usually posted at the bus stop, or in local shops and post offices. Just bear in mind when making your plans that services are much more limited on Sundays in laidback Greece.
The ferry is the preferred mode of transport for island-hopping in Greece, and ferries here run all year round (although some of the more remote islands may only have one service a week). Schedules and tickets can be found at the port, and peak season for sailings is between June and September, when the islands are at their busiest.
