Lets put things into perspective, Heraklion airport is not the best airport in Greece but its not the worst. Every airport have their good points and their bad points.
It has recently had a refurbishment so they are trying to improve.  In the past, reviews of the airport could be quite shocking, however things are improving and getting better with time.

In the summer months it is at its busiest, so do expect large crowds at check-in, one improvement is through security control, there are now six security gates where in the past it only had two which means passing through the airports security is much faster meaning slightly less stress.

Once through, you are now welcomed with a much larger and improved duty free area which you need to pass through so grab a deal if you can.

In the past the airport did get bad reviews for seating or lack of it and dirty toilets, this has now been rectified along with lots more eateries so departing can be a nice experience to what it was.

Arriving into Heraklion, you are met by good quality air-conditioned coaches which bring you to the terminal building.
Immigration can bit hit and miss but most times you can pass through them quite quickly, one improvement we have seen is the speed of baggage reclaim, on numerous occasions we have passed through immigration only to find our bags already on the belts.

One thing to note is the lack of trolleys so please be aware, apart from that the arrival experience was quite good.

  • Covid Safe Pick up and collection thank You!


    Picked us up outside the main airport entrance - all Covid guidelines followed and adhered to. Makes much sense using this firm than sharing a coach which can take hours to arrive at your destination! On time and professional and wore a mask. Thank you

    Prompt drivers


    Prompt drivers- all wearing masks and clean cars. No hassle and extremely polite. Will certainly use again. Better than getting a coach with lots of stops and also lots of other people! Thank you

    Great experience


    Great experience. Me and my wife went to Majorca for a week. We booked with Cheap taxis and it was a dream. Our taxi driver was waiting just outside the door of arrivals with our name on a plaque, he took our luggage and drive us to the resort . On return our driver was a few mins early which was great. Comfortable ride again back to the airport. Clean car ,safe drive and no fuss. Paid exactly what was quoted. Was always kept informed via txt so never worried. Brilliant careful and considerate service from beginning to end. Highly recommend.

    Natasha used us on 28/12/2019 - Transport For Fuerteventura Airport to Corralejo - 9-12 Pax

    Simply Tremendous!



    Inbound flight was delayed, so we’d landed after midnight

    Driver met where arranged, after baggage claim, with a nice clear sign on their iPad

    Helped us with the luggage, and spoke away to our shattered 2yr old

    Driver chatted away, dealt with local diversions, and made sure we were in the Airbnb before even asking for the pre-arranged fare.

    Excellent, clean, modern and spacious vehicle. Came with car seat, as requested too.

    5 stars is more than deserved!

So I have booked my transfer, what next?

Check your emails for your eticket voucher, this needs to be shown to your driver when you arrive in to Heraklion airport.
You can either print the voucher or show your driver it on your mobile phone.
Check your voucher as it will have all your airport transfer details, if you see any errors simply let us know.

Next, just enjoy your holiday and when the sad time comes for when you need to go home, our driver will pick you up at the agreed time on your voucher, they will ensure you are taken back to the airport in a timely manor ready for you to catch your flight home.

Why dont you offer shutttle buses?

Here at cheap-taxis.com we want your holiday experience to be just perfect. Why wait for others and be driven to other hotel locations before yours, it can add up to an hour to your transfer time.

With a private transfer the service includes meet and greet services, our driver will assist you with your luggage and take you to your taxi.
The taxi is just reserved for you and nobody else – it is a door to door service.
Prices for a private transfer can sometimes equal the rates for a shuttle bus service but your transfer experience is much better.

A shuttle bus service with another company is the opposite, you will share with other people and stop at multiple hotels.
This is why we highly recommend a private transfer from Heraklion airport.
