Transport Kalamata to Koroni.

Just wondered if anyone can recommend a reliable taxi/transport company to take six of us from Kalamata airport to Koroni, and back again. Thanks.

Here is a contact for that area http://www.navarinotaxi.gr/index.htm

Or you can try Fox Transfer they have a minibus, or pick up 2 taxis from the airport

2 taxis will probably work out cheaper

There are five (?) buses a day from Kalamata to Koroni, which pass the airport . Maybe a hundred metres from Arrivals to the gate on to the main road. Timetable is on KTEL Messinias The problem will be reading the destination sign in the windscreen of the bus; as some of the buses will be going to Messini or Pylos.

A taxi ,like a Merc or other large saloons , carrying up to four passengers (depending on the luggage) will cost around €40 to Koroni from the airport.

Thomas Cook fly Manchester to Koroni, also providing seats for other package operators . Their last return flight seems to be on the Sept 28 from Kalamata. The airport is on the main Kalamata road to Koroni, so driving to Koroni is easy. Any of the Kalamata car hire companies would meet you at the air port. Just to give you an alternative , both Aegean and Easyjet fly Manchester/Athens ; there is a modern motorway which takes you from Athens Airport to Kalamata , actually very close to Kalamata airport.

Hi Hotterclimes, i think you are in the same position as us! I have asked Navarino taxis for a price - following the suggestion above - and they quoted 60 euros each way per taxi. I think this is quite reasonable and we will probably book a taxi and hire a car for 3-5 days when we are there, as there seems plenty to do in Koroni.

Have a look at the apartments at http://theiconpainter.com/the-apartments.htm You couldn't do better as a base in Koroni village. Michael and Maria ( both ex-pat Scots) will even arrange to pick you up from the airport, if you ask nicely ( for a small fee but lots less than a Taxi!)

Highly commended - spent two weeks there last summer, and are going back this June.

Let me know if you need more info, but their website says it all.....

lyn054, if you are 6, you need 2 taxis, so it's 120 euros each way, total 240 euros. We don't you book a mini van to transfer you to Koroni, if you don't want to rent a car from the airport? Some friends used agni travel (a travel agent in Kalamata) a couple of years ago for their transport from Kalamata airport to Pylos (near Koroni) and they were very happy with them. Price was much less than taxi. You can e-mail them at agnitravel@yahoo.gr and ask.

Thanks Lewisloui, we did look at airport transfers for the six of us, which would be a minibus, and were quoted about 280 euros for both ways, so the taxis seemed the cheaper option. However, we will look at Agni website, many thanks.
