How much have taxi fares increased at European airports | The cost from Athens airport

The price for airport taxis has skyrocketed in Europe over the past year. According to a survey by Vliegveldinfo.nl, travellers are paying on average 10% more for a taxi from the airport to the centre of the nearest major city.

The price increase is another setback for travellers who are already faced with more expensive airline tickets, accommodation and car rentals.

Vliegveldinfo.nl – the largest airport information website in Benelux – compares taxi fares at the 50 busiest European airports every year.

On average, a taxi to the city centre cost 45 euros this summer.
The price has risen sharply, especially in Munich, which last year cost 75 euros and this year 95 euros.

In Turkey, taxi fares have doubled. But due to the huge devaluation of the Turkish lira, travellers from the euro zone are paying less than before.

According to the survey, the most expensive taxi is at Stansted airport in London, at €118.
But this airport is almost four times as far from the heart of the English capital as Schiphol’s distance from the centre of Amsterdam, where the fare is 55 euros.
