Taxi and Transfer from Chania International Airport “Ioannis Daskalogiannis”
Chania is a fascinating town that nestles on the Cretan shores in Greece. It is an ancient settlement, which can boast of having a saturated history and kept on most of the traditional architecture and landmarks since the times of the Turks and Venetians until today.

The Cost of Transfer from Chania International Airport
The airport is serviced by regular bus routes to Chania and Rethymno. Passengers have to pay only 2.5 euro for a trip to Chania and 8 euros to Rethymno. Pay attention that these buses run upon the established timetable (from 6.00 till 22.45). It may be not always convenient for passengers, whose planes land on different points of time. Moreover, after arrival, you will have to look for the nearest bus stop beyond the airport area.
Right near the building of a terminal, you can see a taxi stand. The taxis are on service during the hours of landing or take-off of the planes only. It will cost you 30 euros to reach the city center. In addition, get ready to experience a trip on a rather old vehicle, which doesn’t provide any features of modern comfort.
