Fast and reliable Santorini airport transfers
Why start your vacation on the beautiful island of Santorini by stressing out over your Santorini airport transfer. You don’t need to spend any time waiting in queues or trying to figure out the local public transport. Instead, why not take a fast and reliable Santorini airport taxi directly to your hotel.
When you land at Santorini airport, your pre-selected taxi driver will be there to receive you. They will be waiting for you right outside of your arrival terminal, carrying a sign with your name written on it. If your flight is delayed, your driver will be notified with the rescheduled arrival, so they will always be there when you land. After greeting you, your driver will help you with your luggage and escort you to your pre-paid Santorini airport taxi.
Throughout the ride, your driver will give you handy information about some parts of the island you may want to visit, along with guidelines for an enjoyable stay. At Welcome Pickups, we hire only five-star taxi drivers and all of our employees are qualified English speakers. All you need to do is relax and enjoy the journey to your hotel.
You can still book a ride with Welcome Pickups to get around the island, hail a Santorini taxi from the street, find a taxi rank near one of the main tourist spots or call a taxi.

Directions for your Santorini airport transfer
Santorini airport (JTR), also known as Thira Airport, is the largest airport in the south Aegean Sea. The shortest route from Santorini Airport to the city centre of Fira is 7 km, so the total Santorini airport taxi ride takes approximately 20 minutes. Once your driver exits the airport compound, they will turn right to merge onto the Mesarias/Archeas Thiras highway. Later on, your driver will turn right onto Firon/Ormou Perissis Avenue, which heads directly to the city centre of Fira. From here, they will use the local roads to take you to the door of your hotel, or as close to it as possible if it’s on a pedestrian road.
Why a Santorini airport taxi is the top choice
The most secure and reliable option to take you from Santorini’s Thira Airport to your hotel in the city centre is a Welcome Santorini airport taxi. What makes these Santorini airport transfers stand out is the outstanding customer service offered at any day or time. Furthermore, with a Santorini airport taxi, you prevent having your luggage exposed and avoid delays that may come up when travelling on public transport.
Santorini airport taxi prices
The local drivers at Santorini airport don’t offer a flat-rate fee for the transfer from Santorini airport to Fira. Instead, you will be charged around €35 using a taximeter based on distance. There may be additional fees added for travelling during the holidays and if you have excess luggage, so we recommend booking your Santorini airport taxi with Welcome Pickups to avoid these extra charges. At Welcome, we always offer set-rate fees for your Santorini airport transfers.
The benefits of booking a Welcome Airport Taxi
Booking your Santorini airport taxi transfer is just the start. At Welcome, we want to provide you with all the tools you may need to make your vacation one to remember. That’s why we offer travel extras such as our skip the line tickets for some of the most famous attractions in Santorini, such as the Museum of Prehistoric Thera, The Santo Wines, a beautiful winery, and the Santorini Arts Factory. You can pre-book with us and your driver will hand-deliver them on the day of your pickup. We also offer exciting Sightseeing Tours throughout Santorini so you can see more of the city your way. You can choose between a full or half-day tour and explore some fascinating spots such as the sunset city of Oia or the Ruins of Kasteli Fortress. You pick your stops, how long you spend at each and when you begin and end your tour.
