- Taxis have different colors in different cities. Most taxis in Athens are yellow, in Thessaloniki they are dark blue with a white top, and in other places they may be crimson, red, or grey.

- There are flat fares to and from the airport: 40 euros to central Athens and 55 euros from midnight to 5am (including luggage, VAT and road tolls). These prices are for standard taxi fares that are not pre-arranged. If you want a luxury vehicle, an English speaking driver, or a pre-paid service, you can book a private taxi transfer online.

- Fares are charged with a meter after the initial base rate of €3.44 is applied. The tariff is €0.74 per Km and will double after midnight through to 5am. There are also some extra charges for luggage, waiting time, holidays, and pickups at certain locations.

- Taxi drivers are required by law to provide you with a receipt, but this rarely happens unless you ask for one. If you believe that you have been overcharged, you should demand a receipt and lodge a complaint by calling 1019.

- It is not unusual for a taxi driver to ask you if he or she can pick up other passengers on the way. This is not illegal but you have the right to say no and they must respect your wishes.

- Tipping your driver is optional, but it is customary to round up the fare to the nearest euro or give a few extra euros for good service.
