When you finally land on The Island of the Winds, you will undoubtedly be excited to begin your fabulous Mykonos adventure. But first, you need to get off the airport, to the town or your accommodation. If you’re heading to town, you’ll need a taxi from Mykonos airport to town. We will explain all you need to know about this, including better transportation options for getting around the island.
When you start planning your Mykonos trip, one of the things you will have to pay attention to is getting to your accommodation from the airport. If you plan to book a hotel room or a villa in Mykonos town, Chora (which is an excellent choice, since the place is wonderful), you are probably wondering how to get from Mykonos airport to Mykonos town.
There are many options, for sure, but the first one you’ll think of is probably a taxi. But is the taxi service well-organized on this island? Will it cost you a lot? Keep reading to find out.
Conveniently enough, Mykonos airport is pretty close to Chora – the taxi will usually take just about 10 minutes to get to the center of Chora. This is the most likely case unless there’s traffic, but that is highly unlikely. The chances are that you will see this lovely little town very soon after your plane lands on the island.
The price of the taxi services in Mykonos is nothing compared to other expenses in this part of the Cycladic islands – but you are probably well-prepared for that. We all know how luxurious Mykonos is. The cost of a ride is pretty low – just about €15 to get you to Chora.
Of course, if you want to get elsewhere on the coast, the price will be a bit higher. For example, a drive to the popular Paradise Beach will be €20 – but that’s such a small price for the beauty that awaits you once the drive is over.
In the unlikely case that you want to wait for the public transport, there is a bus that can take you directly to the Fabrika station in Chora. However, we wouldn’t recommend this way of transfer.
Although the public transportation network is very well-organized in Mykonos, the fact is that you would be wasting your precious minutes here waiting for the bus – why do that when you have better options? The bus ride won’t be much longer (5 minutes more than by taxi), but it will certainly be a less pleasant way to begin the dream vacation.
Sure, taxis in Mykonos are a quick way to get where you want to go, and they aren’t even as expensive as one might expect. Still, there is one huge problem that thousands of tourists face every summer – Mykonos has less than 40 vehicles for the entire island! Knowing this, you can imagine how next to impossible it would be to catch an available vehicle. You can be sure to run into some lines for taxis in Mykonos.
There are some unlicensed drivers waiting outside the airport, but you definitely don’t want to risk it. If you end up in an accident, your insurance won’t cover the cost because the transfer service isn’t licensed. The only solution for getting a real taxi once your plane lands is to pre-book the ride, which won’t cost you anything but will save you plenty of time and nerves.
Your time in Mykonos is valuable – don’t waste it due to a lack of decent transfer service. You can save your nerves and energy simply by reaching out to The Ace Vip. We offer various private transfers across the island, and our services will provide you with a comfortable and luxurious travel experience while in Mykonos. Get yourself a professional driver and relax during your time in Greece – we’ve got you covered.
One of the best things about our services is that they can be tailored to fit the client’s needs perfectly. That’s why a driver waiting at the airport can always be a part of our transfers. The concept is simple – you inform us about your flight details, and our driver will be waiting for you to jump in the car the second you get off the terminal.
Doesn’t that sound like the most convenient solution? No waiting, and no wasting your time – and all that for a fair and reasonable price. Let us help you make your vacation as exceptional as a Mykonos vacation should be.
If you, for some reason, don’t want a private chauffeur to help you get around Mykonos, staying here for days or weeks without a car is never a good idea. Sure, the island is small, but not so small that you can get to every beach by walking. If you’re staying in Chora, most of the popular beaches will be 10-15 minutes away – by car. That’s why you should get a car rental.
The Ace Vip has outstanding car rental services, and we can make sure you have the most luxurious vehicles while in Mykonos. After all, this place is all about luxury, and that stands for transfers as well. If you’re not happy with the regular means of transport, we can also offer you a yacht rental – yachts are a fantastic way to explore Mykonos and see all parts of its coast.
Our specialties are transfers to any place, hotel, or Mykonos villa. You can rest assured that there’s no better way to travel across the coast of Mykonos than with us – our drivers are top-level and will provide a safe and comfortable drive. Hopefully, you will book their services, and they will take you to your luxury villa, one of many Mykonos villas for rental that The Ace Vip offers. We have outstanding properties near all famous beaches, and we’re sure you will find the perfect one for your vacation.
