What you get with our Athens airport transfers

English-speaking drivers

If your Greek language skills are rusty, then you’ll benefit from booking your airport transfer with one of the many English-speaking drivers SIXT has available on its staff.

Flight tracking

Make sure you enter your flight number when booking your Athens airport transfer. This allows your driver to track your flight and change the pick-up time according to when your flight actually arrives in Athens. We provide this service free of charge.

In-terminal pick-up

ATH is a sizeable airport, and SIXT understands that travelers don’t want to spend their time looking for a vehicle that matches the description of their ride. Instead, passengers can find their driver waiting for them inside the terminal.
