I'm just back from another wonderful few weeks in Paleochora ... this place is just like a drug; I can't stop going back again and again and again .....!
With various forum posts discussing taxi fares and lots of differing advice about fares I thought it would be useful to post the current official taxi fares on here to avoid any further confusion !!!
Note these are the OFFICIAL fares as printed on the boards at the airport taxi stands. Look at the official board BEFORE you speak to a taxi driver. You may be able to negotiate a lower price, but get the driver to agree the price BEFORE you agree to get into the taxi. If he quotes higher than the official price tell him you won't pay more than the official price. Or go to another driver until you find one who gives you the right price. Don't be intimidated by them!
these prices are all one way:
Heraklion Airport - Paleochora €262
Heraklion Airport - Chania €174
Heraklion Airport - Heraklion bus station €10
Chania Airport - Paleochora €110
Chania Airport - Chania bus station €23
Also just to re-iterate about KTel bus fares -
Heraklion bus station - Paleochora €20 per person each way
Chania airport - Chania bus station €2.30 pp each way
Chania bus station - Paleochora €7.60 pp each way
As for car hire - the Paleochora companies are no longer cheap and bear in mind that petrol/diesel is very expensive now. A single journey from Paleochora to Chania airport will cost you at least €15 - 20 for just one way travel plus the cost of your car hire.
Please message me if you require any further advice about either taxi or bus transfers. I am very used to doing the journey between Paleochora and both airports.
