Transfer from Plakias to Heraklion
« on: October 11, 2017, 04:04:01 PM »
Just about the longest transfer time ever - over 4hours to get from Plakias to airport yesterday with Olympic with at least 10 pickups en route.  Worst ever and at the moment can't imagine wanting to do that journey ever again.  One couple decided to get a taxi which took 1hr 20 mins, however it did cost 110 euros!!!!

My worst was 5 hours Heraklion to Plakias. This was many years ago, and if I remember correctly it was with Thompson. Yes, there used to be a choice of tour operator. At one time there were seven different UK companies offering holidays in Plakias.

These days, you don't always get a transfer with Olympic, but we don't use them if they are offered.
Taxis are a faster and more convenient option - or get someone from Plakias to pop out and pick you up.

Our normal solution is to hire a car at the airport. If you deduct the cost of taxis each way then it costs little extra to have transport available - to go for dinner in Sellia, or seek out a sheltered beach if it's windy in Plakias.

Or, of course, you could go by public transport: very cheap, and not as bad as you think.
