Yellow taxis in Athens = scam artists
Oct 2020
Only took two yellow taxis in Athens and got ripped off both times. First from the airport where he tried to charge us 63 euro with all extra fees such as 'airport tax ', tolls and luggage costs . Second taxi tried to charge us 48 euro for a trip from around Acropolis to Macaw beach bar which should be around 12 euro. Never used a yellow taxi again after this and used Uber which made getting around Athens stress free for the next week.They think tourists are stupid and they will get some extra money off you once or twice but they are the ones doing the rest of the other yellow taxis out of business . I travel with work all around the world and Athens yellow taxis are by far the worst taxi thieves ever .Obviously the fact they keep doing this to tourists means the taxi regulator's job is as much use as a chocolate tea pot.

DO NOT USE THE YELLOW TAXIS, AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE, THIEVES!!
Feb 2020
The yellow taxis just steal from Europeans, my journey to the hotel was 30 euros, I went to my meeting and for a journey back to the airport, they charged all of us a different amount. My friend basically had an extra 30 euros charged to him for nothing. its big scam, the man's meter said 35 euros but he claimed it was broken and it was really 52 euros my friend was charged 60 euros. its outrageous bloody thieves!!!

It would be better to be sure first where you are doing your complaints. "Taxi Athens Airport" is a touristic office and you are speaking in general about your adventure in Athens. You have not requested for a transfer with our office... You have not used one of our drivers... Although you write a bad criticism here about what happened to you. The right place where you have to place your compain is "aia" (Athens International airport). I highly recommend you to be more careful in the future and not playing with someone's "good fame". I would ask you to take it back!

NICE RIDE TO THE AIRPORT
Dec 2019
We utilized this service from Hotel Grande Bretagne to the airport. It was a flat rate €54 due to the time, 0430, we hailed the cab for our flight. The rate changes to €38 at 0500. It was an easy ride in an older Mercedes and took about 30 minutes. The price is all inclusive, luggage charge, tolls, tax, meter start, airport fees, so you do not have to pay anything more than the above flat rate.

DO NOT TAKE THE TAXI
Nov 2019
All the other reviews are correct and I wish I would of seen these comments before hand!! The taxi drivers here are scammers. They speed, don't wear seat belt or care for your well-being and don't even turn on the AC. I took the taxi twice and experienced the same issue and have been scammed twice!! When arrival at the destination the meter showed 28 euro but somehow he told me 38 euro! I saw him jacked up the meter and added a "luggage" fee which doesn't even make sense because I had one small luggage. That was my arrival, then for my departure I had the same thing happened.. this time it was 30 euro on the meter when we got to the airport but he started pressing some buttons and it went up to 40 euro. Bunch of crooks! Avoid if you can.

Taxi Athens Airport is a touristic office. You tried to find a place to say your complain but you found the wrong one. You can not accuse someone's service without using them first. The only thing you are doing is to speak in general and not for our company. The problem is that you give information about taxis in general accusing a spesific bussiness which has "taxi athens airport" as a brand name. It is not fair, don't you think?

Attention : 10€ airport surcharge ?
Sep 2019 • Solo
My taxi driver asked a 10€ „airport surcharge“ on top of the taxameter price. I asked whether this is serious, but the driver insisted. Unfortunately I paid that price without adking for the taxi licence. Next time I would photo the taxi licence „to ask authorities about the 10€ surcharge“. I would like to see the reaction.....

Another taxi story
Jul 2019 • Family
We took 4 taxis in Athens and were scammed 2 times. Try to find a reliable drivers before coming.
1st we didn’t know about the flat rate to Athens and our driver made us paid 38 euros to Holliday inn which is near the airport and it’s when arriving at the hotel desk that they told me that it is 20€. Another one auto tips himself arguing that the company is charging him too much for making a living. Really, if it’s the minority, or I’m very unlucky or there is more than they wants to acknowledge. Better to take the bus or the metro. We did this the last day from Piraeus to the airport and it was perfect and reasonable price (6€)

Robin Hood would have been proud of our airport taxi driver
Jul 2019 • Couples
It's a flat rate of EUR 38 from the airport to central Athens. It says this at the taxi stand at the airport. However, our driver insisted we give him EUR60 and said that EUR38 was not the rate. We were stupid and handed over the money.
If you are taking a taxi from the Airport to Athens, have the exact money ready so you don't need change (this is how we were robbed) and stick to your guns if they try and charge your more. The license plate of the taxi we had was TAA7384, so definitely don't go with him.
An awful start to our holiday.

Don’t ever take a taxi in the Athens Airport – they surely rob you
Jun 2019 • Couples
Me and my Girl friend took a taxi from Athens airport to our AirBNB accommodation near to the airport. We asked the driver whether he knows the place before we start and asked for a receipt at the end of the tour. He said he knows the place and will give us a receipt.
When we started the journey he said he doesn’t have GPS. We showed him the route using our GPS in the phone. The he said he cannot use this road but he knows a better route and forcefully took us in a different route. He deliberately took us away from the destination. We we shwed him the rout he kept on saying he know the place.
After taking us a round, finally we arrived at the destination. Then he kept on suggesting us not to stay in this place but to go to a place he knows (Grrrr).
He refused credit card payments. He wanted cash. He sat on the front seat deliberately till I gave him cash. I can bet I gave him EU 50 note. I changed my currency in the airport and I had 4 of 50 notes. He took it and instantly took a EU 10 note from his pocket and said, I gave him a !0. How much we argued he continued to shout. Knowing he is chatting us I gave the poor fellow his amount. He refused to give us a receipt saying his machine is broken. He took EU 38, which is the rate normally taken from Airport to Athens. In our case it is just next to the airport.
I have heard even worse cases about Terrible taxi driers in Athens. I know. Greece is a poor country with lot of poverty and drugs. No wonder extreme poverty leads these ill mannered taxi drivers to cheat, so they can have their meals for them and for their staving kids.
Authorities know this. They pretend as if they do not. We decided not to go to Athens again. And we will not touch that poor desperate country again. Those who are unlucky to go there keep these things in mind. Most common things taxi drivers do.
1. They say they do not have GPS navigation.
2. They normally will ask you, whether this is your first time in Athens
3. They take you from a long route
4. Suggest you not to stay in accommodation you booked but stay somewhere else
5. When you give money they say u gave a smaller note
I have travelled in many poor countries in Africa , Asia and elsewhere but never come across with this sort of a taxi-mafia which you can experience in Athens.
Best thing is to use Train in Athens. Especially to and from the airport. Never get in to Horrible terrified taxies in Athens, it is the worst-ever taxi service in the world.

Beware of Airport Taxis
Jul 2018 • Business
We took a fixed rate taxi from the airport to the city center at 3 PM in the afternoon. The taxi driver spoke English well, he said he had lived in the States, in fact he was very welcoming to the point we never suspected he was going to stop the taxi in the middle of the highway asking us for money, to pay him double the fixed rate. We could not believe it, he refused to drive us to our hotel the Royal Olympic in Plaka saying there was no access to the front of the hotel. He stopped the taxi and dumped us with our luggage in the middle of nowhere after we had paid him. We had to walk uphill with our luggage in a neighborhood where young drug addicts lay on the floor passed out. It was a very sad and scary scene. We finally made it to the Royal Olympic Hotel and we told our story to the Concierge who was not surprised because he's heard other guests tell him stories of criminal taxi drivers in Athens.
It was a brutal beginning of what was supposed to be a safe journey in Athens.
