" The fare from Heraklion airport to Chersonissos is 36 euros and from
Heraklion airport to Stalida is 41 euros.

We charge a handling fee as follows:
for bookings till 45 euros > 3 euros handling fee
for bookings from 46-85 euros > 5 euros handling fee
for bookings over 85 euros > 7 euros handling fee

If you wish to make a booking please send us your flight details. Our
driver could then meet you at the airport arrivals.

We would also appreciate a mobile phone number if you plan to carry your
phone with you.

Please note that our taxis are licensed to carry up to 4 passengers (+ the
driver).

Best regards,
Colinda for Cretetaxi.com "

Last year in May From Heraklio Airport to Stalida 36 - just drop in a taxi
but if I ordered fare was 40

It may be different what taxi you take !!! - and the mood of the driver ... etc

No , they are not . Not even you " seems to read " .

Hi Ian,

Dear Mr Reddin


Thank you for contacting Easytaxi.gr.

Easytaxi.gr offers the transfer from Heraklion airport to Stalida at 33 Euro, for one taxi. According to the Greek law, one taxi can carry up to four passengers.

Among other things you should know when arriving in Crete is that Cretan airports are not big. There is only one arrival lounge so our drivers can easily find you supposing they have your name and flight details.

Please let me know if you are interested in this offer.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me either by email or phone.



Yours sincerely,

A. Fragkiadakis

The taxi fares list from the Heraklion airport to various towns in Crete has been updated with the latest prices:
http://www.explorecr...crete-taxis.htm
In the same page you will also find the updated list with the current taxi rates and surcharges.

The taxi fares from the Chania airport will be updated as soon as I receive the fax from the union of the Chania taxi owners.

this is probably a rather stupid question ( but that's me). I've just been looking at the explore crete page about taxis and noted the bit about sharing, but not expecting to share the fare. If I get into a taxi at, say Iraklio to go to Ag Nik with my partner, do we pay a total of E50 (as shown in the table) or is it E50 each? Or does the non-sharing of fares only apply if another couple flag down "our" taxi on the road out of the airport to share the same journey, and then the driver makes E100?
Hope this makes sense.

Hi, from my experience it would be €50 for the trip and then in the unlikely event that more passengers were taken they would pay separately.

You might like to take a bus instead, they are frequent, allow you to see more of the scenery and will probably cost you less than €7 each (couple of years since we paid €5) - there is an information desk as you leave the arrival hall and they can direct you to the right place to wait.

The bus driver will place your luggage in a special "hold" then you sit back and relax.

Have a great time!

When I joined this forum, very recently, I thought it was a friendly site. I have now re-read the above posts, just to make sure, and the answer to my question is not there. Therefore can I say that I find Antero's response both rude and unfriendly, especially to a new member. If Antero was just having a bad day, perhaps he would like to apologise.

Katharine.
