Arrive happy with Thira rides & airport transfers.

The beautiful volcanic Greek island of Santorini is readily accessible thanks to its modest yet efficient airport. The island, officially known as Thira, once sparked the imaginations of many civilisations, and is even believed to be the inspiration behind the myth of Atlantis. And Santorini National Airport is fittingly humble - only taking six civilian planes at a time – as it blends with the island’s unspoilt feel.

Whilst on this enchanting island, you can make your way around every town during your stay. Most notably Kamari, Fira, Perissa, Imerovigli and Oia all have great things to offer in terms of local culture and food. Santorini is also particularly well known for the top-quality wine of the same name, and to try it at source is the ideal treat for connoisseurs. You’ll be able to explore to your heart’s content once you’ve jumped aboard a hoppa Santorini airport to hotel transfer.

How to book a taxi transfer from Santorini Airport

We like to make things as simple as possible for our customers - including our booking process. All you need to do to secure your airport transfer in Santorini is fill in your travel details in the boxes at the top of this page and click ‘Search’. You’ll then be offered the choice of either private or shared shuttle bus transfers.

Shuttle bus or private vehicle?

If you’re unsure about how to make it to your destination, here’s an overview of what’s on offer with each option:

Shuttle bus

  • This is usually a more budget-friendly choice.
  • There may, however, be a short waiting period once you touch down at the airport. That’s because you’ll be sharing the bus with other travellers, whose flights may land after yours.
  • This also means that there’ll be drop-off points along the way, and your accommodation may not be the first stop on the route.

Private vehicle

  • You and your travelling party will be the only passengers.
  • Your e-ticket will include a pick-up time at which you’ll be due to meet the driver of your Santorini airport to hotel transfer.
  • You’ll be taken from the airport straight to your vehicle and driven directly to your accommodation, with no stops along the way.

How much will my Santorini airport transfer cost?

Once you’ve entered your details atop this page and clicked ‘Search’, you’ll be provided with a price for your airport transfer in Santorini. However, please note that these are live valuations – subject to change in line with currency rates and resort pricing – so if you leave your search and return at another time, the cost may have been adjusted slightly.

What’s next after I’ve chosen my transport?

After selecting between private and shared transfer, you’ll come to the ‘Extras’ part of your booking. Here, we’ll provide you with information on your baggage allowance, which is usually one piece of carry-on and one suitcase per person. However, if you have any additional luggage, such as extra bags, golf clubs or a wheelchair, you can add these onto your booking.

What about the e-ticket?

Once you’ve completed the booking of your taxi transfer from Santorini Airport, we’ll send an e-ticket to your email address. Please keep this document safe as it contains important information regarding your pick-up arrangements as well as any contact numbers you might need.

Please read the e-ticket carefully ahead of your flight - it may be worth printing off before you travel to keep it in your hand luggage. That way, you’ll have it to hand to show your driver when you land, and it won’t get lost if something happens to your hold luggage.

Where do I go when I land in Santorini?

Once you’ve touched down safe and sound, please check the ‘Find my pick-up’ section of your e-ticket. This should provide information on where you need to go to meet the driver of your Santorini airport transfer.

These instructions can vary depending on the travel company or the type of transfer you’ve booked, although most travellers landing in Santorini are required to head to the arrivals hall. Here your travel representative will be waiting holding a sign bearing either your name or that of hoppa.

Please read the ‘Find my pick-up’ section carefully, and if you can’t see any details regarding your Santorini airport to hotel transfer, call us on the number listed on your e-ticket for help.

I can’t find my driver

Regrettably, traffic jams can occasionally cause our drivers to run a little late. But don’t worry, if you get to the meeting point and there’s no sign of your driver, simply dial the number listed on your e-ticket and we’ll provide you with an update.

What if I’m running late?

Similarly, there’s no need to panic if you’re the one who’s been delayed – we understand that flights can be disrupted, and that bags can take their time coming off the carousel. If you think you are going to be late to meet the driver of your Santorini airport transfer, just give us a ring on the number provided on your e-ticket and we’ll pass the message on.

Your driver will wait up for up to 45 minutes after the initial pick-up time. After that point, we’ll send a new driver out to you. If, however, you’re delayed by more than three hours, you’ll need to rearrange your Santorini airport transfer with us and contact your travel insurer.

What is there to do at Santorini Airport?

Waiting for your flight at the airport can be a breeze with the airport’s range of stores, cafes, bars and restaurants. There’s something to keep everyone entertained while you bide your time before boarding and, for those looking to chat to their friends or upload their holiday snaps ahead of returning home, there’s free, unlimited Wi-Fi throughout the building.
