Hi Joe, its one of them journeys that could be anything between 1-2 hrs on the package deal transfer, all dependant on how many drops and where in line you are. We have been quite lucky and usually just over an hr.

I personally would say if you are arriving late afternoon, sit back , enjoy the view and let the holiday begin.

If you do fancy jumping a taxi, agree the price before you start, there are hundreds of taxis at the taxi rank or you could pre order, here are a couple of firms we have used.

Hi Jo.

Transfer can take anything up to 2.5 hrs where a Taxi takes around 50 mins.If you book a Taxi via your hotel it costs around 90 Euro so it can be a little cheaper to just grab one at the airport.

Hi there

It really depends if you want to await around for everyone at the airport and then sit on a coach, as the other have said for a possible 2 - 2.5 hours, a taxi is going to cost you around 80 euros one way ...of course the other alternative is to hire a car for around 20 euros a day ...it's an easy drive of around 50 mins max ...but between the four of you a taxi won't be too bad :-)

If you are late afternoon, and depending on where you are staying here, might be worth looking at a bus ride instead? Cost around 12 Euros pp and is a lovely way to see some of the other places on your way.

The bus changes at Ag Nik main station, and you can either hop the Elounda bus, or get a taxi from there (15.00 Euros roughly).

Just another thought for you...

I can check times if you have an idea when your flight gets in...

Hi Eklektos,

We are considering the bus from the airport to Elounda when we visit in July, we are due to arrive at 18:30, do the buses still run at this time of day?

Thank you.

Hi there

We usually get a hire car at the airport but here's the link to the bus timetables...but arriving at that time there will still be buses they run till around 11.00 pm, these start to run later into high season....there's also the location of the bus stop at the airport on the link too, although it's easy to find :-)

Our flights usually land around 22.00 local time and we've always gone for a coach transfer using resort hoppa - roughly around the same time as a package deal coach. It can take a while -usually between 1 and 1.5 hours unless we're really unlucky and it's actually quite nice to sit and be driven.

Remember that Greece is 2hrs ahead of us too, so although it will be 9pm local time, to you it will feel like 7pm.
