Customer feedback

Absolutely wonderful. Although my flight was a little late and luggage took forever, the driver was there. Easy to spot, as he had a sign with my name. Took my luggage and was very friendly and pleasant. I'll definitely recommend Kiwi and will use again if needed.. Many thanks
Very good driver, he answered our questions, and connected us to his colleague who talked Russian. Excellent service overall!
Absolutely great, just as you'd promised. A gentlemanly driver was happily awaiting our arrival. He warmly drove us to our destination. The driver was just a joy to be driven by. Top marks for his curtecy and willingness to assist.
The booking process was unbelievably fast and simple, the driver timely and polite and the journey, comfortable and affordable. Couldnt ask for more really.
The booking process was easy and the status update was clear. My driver arrived for pick-up ahead of time, greeted me politely and helped with loading my luggage swiftly. The ride to the airport was smooth and comfortable, gave me peace of mind. I highly recommended Kiwitaxi.
It was more than perfect! We found the driver very quickly and he was absolutely friendly. His English was very good, so the communication worked very well. Then he also helped us with the luggage, gave us tips and infos for sightseeing and helped us to find our ferry at the port. It was awesome!
the service was fantastic. Our driver was professional, early, and extremely helpful. The vehicle was clean and in great shape. I would recommend kiwitaxi to anyone traveling. Looking forward to our next trip to Charles De Gaul next week.
Our driver texted us not only where to meet him but also a picture of himself so we could easily identify him when we exited the airport. He was helpful with our bags, courteous and drove well. Vehicle was clean and comfortable. Definitely nicer than taking a regular taxi.
The trip was absolutely comfortable. The driver picked us up punctually, brought us exactly to our hotel (although we mistakenly gave the wrong address) and made sure the hotel receptionist met us. It was clear, that the driver really takes care of us. So big warm thank you:)
The driver was waiting for us when we came out of our apartment. He was very skilled at navigating the roadways and delivered us to our destination on time, if not a few minutes early. I have used Kiwi Taxi in the past and recommend them 100%.

Transfers vs. Other Ways to Get from Thessaloniki Macedonia Airport

Macedonia Airport receives up to 4 million tourists annually. It is only 15 km from Thessaloniki, so the traffic between the city and the air hub is very busy. Many people arriving at Macedonia are heading not only to Thessaloniki, but also to Chalkidiki (Halkidiki) resorts — the peninsula in the northeast of Greece. It makes sense to study the route in advance before such a journey.

How to get from Thessaloniki Airport to the city center or the other way round

At Macedonia Airport there is no intercity transport. So, if you are planning to travel to Ouranoupoli, Nea Moudania, Sani resort, and other cities, you will have to change in the city of Thessaloniki. At the airport you can take:

  • a bus № 78 or № 78N (night), which will bring you to Macedonia bus station. The interval between buses is 15–20 minutes during the day, and 30 minutes at night. On Sundays and holidays you will have to wait for transport 10-15 minutes longer;
  • taxi, which can be taken on the spot (services «Omega», «Macedonia», «EuroTaxi» etc.);
  • taxi service at Thessaloniki Airport, ordered via the local app (Taxi 18300). Uber does not operate in the city;
  • transfer, booked online in advance.

Intercity buses depart from Macedonia Intercity Bus Station (KTEL Halkidiki stop).

Transfer vs. Taxi from Thessaloniki Airport (ordered via the app)

Advantages of a private transfer

No need to figure out how the app works. Familiar Uber does not work in Thessaloniki, and Taxi 18300 has an unusual booking system. In order not to learn how to use a new app, studying the settings, order a transfer.

Order in the language you speak. Kiwitaxi booking form is available in 5 languages including English.

Transfer from Thessaloniki Airport vs. Taxi (taken on the spot)

Advantages of a private transfer

60% cheaper. A trip by taxi from Thessaloniki Airport to the city center costs 50 euro, whereas by transfer only 30 euro.

ΕΛΕΥΘΕΡΟΣ! Do you know what it means? This text on a taxi signalizes that the car is available and you can get into. There is no need to memorize this, in order to travel by transfer.

No confusion with address. Having received your order, Kiwitaxi driver will know all the details in advance in order to plan the route. In case of taxi, you can easily end up in another district: there many streets with the same names.

Without extra fees. In taxi you will pay extra not only for your luggage, night ride, starting fee, but also for ordering by phone or booking a car for the particular time. A trip fare with Kiwitaxi is fixed and does not change. For example, the economy transfer from the air hub to the central train station will cost 37 euro, and a minivan 4pax — 40 euro.

Transfer from Thessaloniki Airport vs. Buses

Advantages of a private transfer

You know where the pickup point is, and do not have to walk around an unfamiliar city searching for the stop. The bus № 78 goes to the airport (and back) taking different routes and through different streets, so it is often difficult for tourists to orientate.

You will not fall victim of a strike. Bus drivers in Thessaloniki often strike and skip work. This does not happen with a transfer.

Get to your destination in half an hour. And by bus you will get to your hotel in Thessaloniki in 1 hour 40 minutes including waiting time and changes.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

50 times more expensive. It is without a doubt cheaper to get to the city by bus: a ticket costs only 60 cents.
