The airport taxis have a fixed rate but they are legally required to use their meters. The meter rate is inevitably less than the fixed rate. However, dealing with a seriously stroppy taxi driver at the start of a visit puts the dampers on things.

The fixed rate is €65, the meter rate around €10 less, depending upon traffic and the private hire rate another €10 less.

When I travel alone, I usually use the bus - around €7 from the airport via Kalamata to Stoupa.

I hate been ripped off by taxi drivers, Worldwide. As much as I hate UK airports.

I wouldn't say that the fixed rate of 65.-- EUR is a rip off.
The price includes some special services from which I want to point out only a few:
  • The taxi drivers which were personally ordered and have been 100% reliable in the past will wait at the airport even if there are delays.
  • The ordered taxi drivers will know the exact location of all accommodation - even from remote accommodation in the villages around Stoupa and will bring you right there at no extra cost.
  • With your order you support local taxi drivers although the actual driver might be from Kalamata. Their interest to satisfy their customers is obvious.
  • A short stop for example for a first quick shopping at the supermarket is possible - of course there is no extra charge.
  • Especially for the return trip to the airport reliability is absolutely essential. No one ever missed his flight.

We booked a taxi through Stefan, excellent service, had a 2 1/2hr delay, driver waiting for us on arrival, thought the price was good value for four people with cases and two drop offs, would definately use again.
