The Athens airport is also known as “Eleftherios Venizelos” and it is the busiest airport in Greece, which is why many people are worried about transport to and from the airport. There are numerous ways to get to and from the airport.There are four different buses that stop outside the airport. The bus companies run a fairly frequent service, and you are able to use the buses to gain access to the bigger and busier parts of the city. However, if this is your first time in Athens and/or your first time using the Athens Airport, then maybe you shouldn't use the bus service. Knowing how to use the service, and knowing where to get off is tricky. There is a rail/metro station that is just outside the airport. The airport is very big, but once you finally find the exit, you can cross a short walkway to reach the train station. Familiarize yourself with the rail system and the rail stops, and take a short rail journey towards a location near your hotel. Travelling by rail is the second best option if you have just arrived in Athens.
The best travel option at your disposal is a taxi service. Nobody is saying you should use taxis all time while you are in Greece, but it is often best to use a taxi when you first arrive. You can use the taxi to take you straight to your hotel, and you do not have to worry about dragging your luggage around town. There are two choices when it comes to getting a taxi from the Athens airport. You may use the taxis in the designated taxi area within the grounds of the Athens airport. Or, you may use Taxileader and book your taxi long in advance. The taxis that sit in the designated areas are often busy and in great demand, so you will probably have to queue up. Plus, they are more expensive than local taxis to cover the fees they have to pay to the airport. A Taxileader taxi is cheaper, and it is able to pick you up from the designated spots either in the airport grounds or in the adjacent rail station.
Fill in the booking form on this page for a taxi transfer to and from Athens airport. Fixed price, 24/24h service all year round.
Using Taxileader means you are able to book your taxi in advance over the Internet. You are able to use the website in your own language and you may pay for your taxi in advance with your local currency. Instead, if you prefer it, you may pay your taxi driver when you arrive in Athens. If you are worried about your taxi because your plane has been delayed, all you have to do is make contact with your driver to let him or her know. If you do this, then not only will your taxi driver wait for you, but there will be no extra charge. The amount you pay is set in advance when you book your taxi, which means there are no nasty surprises when you take your taxi. There are very few other taxi companies that offer such a good deal.
