          How do I get from the airport to the hotel? Is taking a taxi the only option?

          I don't know whether there is a bus. I had rented a car anyway. Ask the hotel manager whether they pick you up at the airport. The ride took about 15 minutes. The taxi can't be too expensive, then.

          Hi, My girlfriend and I are arriving to Crete(Heraklion) at 6.30 Oct 1st off the ferry. And then we have a flight the next morning 2nd Oct and have to be at the airport 0930 in the morning. As seen on your amenities you offer transportation if so how much will it cost from the port and to the airport the next day. Thank you Craig Machell
