2012 Taxi cost please

From Airport to Piraeus in the afternoon. Sure the info is somewhere on here but I can't find it. Thanks for your help.

It will probably cost you over 40 euro. Remember there is a direct bus, the X96, which of course will take a bit longer, but only costs 5 euro...

It may get over 50 euros if the driver decides to take you through the Attiki Odos highway instead of the coastal route.

Bus service is frequent and can take you there for just 5 euros per person indeed.

Of course choice depends on amount of time, amount of persons and luggage you have and location you are going to. If it's a small family / group with a lot of luggage, taxi is a sensible option. But if it's one person with a hand luggage, then bus is the good way to go.

Thanks,

I realised the Bus X96 and metro would be a cheaper alternative and was originally going to travel via one of these modes. But,now have decided against that and instead have booked a Taxi….pre-booked Merc for 55 euros which IMO is good value…reasons... we live 3 hours from London so an early get up at 05.00 and we don’t arrive in ATH airport until 17.30 …4 pieces of luggage on a busy Saturday afternoon (if not delayed) is not my idea of fun :-) sometimes ease and comfort come before cost, this is one such occasion…..this year we travel via ferry, last year by Olympic Air, so being philosophical we are saving 150 euros instead of 205 euros :-) still hurts, ouch :-)
