Hello, any regular taxi will be fine. You can always download the taxi beat app if you want. Their drivers are reviewed regularly and have to meet a certain level of service to be kept on the network.

Taxi fares from the airport to the city centre are 38 euro flat fare from 5am until midnight and 54 euro flat fare from midnight until 5am. If you get a regular taxi from outside arrivals just let them know that you are aware of the flat fare to the city centre.

When are you arriving? I have just read on another thread that there is a strike tomorrow by regular taxi drivers. You can still use the beat app though.

If you want a private taxi service, I have used George's Taxi in the past. Last year they charged about 55 Euro from the airport to central Athens which is slightly more than just hailing one at the airport.

Is George’s Taxi worth paying extra for? Would you get a commentary or mini tour on the way to the hotel for example. Just curious :)

Could I also suggest that you take a photo of the sign at the front of the queue line for taxis that clearly states the €38 Euro flat fee.

Unfortunately we were targeted last week by a taxi driver after naively starting out or first visit to Athens. The driver had the meter on for the trip into the centre of Athens and it clearly showed €62,he wanted €70. If I had have taken the photo, our language barrier ridden argument would have been immediately over.
