Transportation services have traditionally been among the most frequently requested concierge services, especially when traveling abroad. This is understandable: the need for a means of transportation arises immediately upon arrival, and the air flight itself is nothing more than a transport service.
However, this category includes not only tickets and transportation services. Booking a taxi, renting a car, buying and servicing a vehicle in a foreign country - all these are special cases of a wide range of transport services.
- Train tickets
- Bus service
- Ferry service
In the modern world, each of us can order a ticket via the Internet on the page of the company of interest, or using an aggregator site. But this is only if the necessary information is presented in the native language, and the journey itself implies moving from point A to point B. When planning complex routes, it is not so easy to calculate a trip from start to finish: there may be overlaps with the schedule, too long periods expectations, the likelihood of making a mistake with the departure time, etc. The situation is even more complicated when it comes to planning a route in a foreign country using air, land or water transport.
In Greece, due to its geographic features, travel is not always limited to simply booking air tickets. The country has 15 international airports, which is significantly less than the number of islands and resorts. Most often, it is necessary to get from the airport to the final destination by land and / or water routes. Transport in Greece is diverse: each region has its own domestic airports, ports, railway and bus stations. In the summer, the schedule is quite tight, but if the route is complex and includes more than 1-2 changes, it can be quite difficult to plan a trip.
Greece Invest 's booking specialists will plan for you an individual itinerary that is optimal in terms of time and financial costs, as well as book tickets for plane, train, bus or ferry. At the exit you will receive a ready-made travel program indicating the place and time of departure, instructions on how to get to the place, and recommendations regarding the time of departure and arrival.
What is the difference between a transfer and a taxi? This is a topic for a separate article, but if described in general terms, then the transfer can be booked any time before the intended trip, its price is calculated in advance and will not change after booking confirmation, the driver will meet you with a sign in the airport arrival hall, help with luggage, and if necessary - and with check-in at the hotel. In addition, when making a reservation, you can select the vehicle class and order additional services, such as a child seat or a booster.
Taxis are usually booked immediately upon arrival, or a short time before the expected arrival date - usually a day before. Guessing the class and make of the car in advance is unlikely to work, as well as the estimated cost of the trip. But a taxi is available at any time, while a transfer must be booked at least 24 hours in advance. In addition, Greece provides for a separate type of license for such a service as transfers. This means that for moving around the city and over short distances, the transfer is not suitable - in this case, it is better to use a taxi service.

Perhaps the most radical way to solve the transport issue in Greece is to purchase a car or yacht. This option, of course, is suitable for those who often visit the country, either own real estate here or are just going to purchase it.
