The Cost of Transfer from Skiathos Airport
This airfield is not serviced by the bus routes. A taxi service is the only means, which ensures a link with the city. The cost of transportation depends on the duration of a trip and many other factors. During the high season, the demand for taxi facilities is increased. To find a free vehicle is not an easy task and you may be offered to ride with strangers. The only and the most convenient way out is a transfer.
In close proximity to the terminal, you can see a taxi stand. The airport building is also conveniently placed in a 5-minute drive from Skiathos Port.
However, in summer season one can observe a lack of vehicles and you should wait in a queue. To get maximum profit, taxi drivers often take strangers “on a board”. In addition, they are reluctant to divide the fee and you have to pay the full price. If you take a glance at vehicles available in taxi fleet, you will notice that all cars are rather old and not able to ensure the desired level of comfort (even for an extra charge).
