TAXI ANYONE?

ZAKYNTHOS RADIO TAXI ASSOCIATION

In Zakynthos the only official radio taxi network that is in operation 24hours a day, seven days a week, working in conjunction with the Government services and is not privately operated is The Radio Taxi Association of Zakynthos, or known as ZANTE TAXI.

The association has the largest fleet on the Island therefore enabling them to cover the Island quickly and affordably. All drivers are experienced and are locals, whom most speak fluent English, whilst others can speak languages such as German and Italian. As they are locals, they can also act as a tour guide taking you to the most popular destinations or to local hide outs that are not seen by the tourist trade.

The association has affordable prices not just to and from pick ups but they offer services such as private guided tours (VIP) and wedding cars at very affordable prices as well. Each car by law can take up to 4 adults and a small child, so please remember this when booking a taxi if you have more than four adults.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR……

As you arrive in Zakynthos it will be easy to recognize the Radio Taxi Association of Zakynthos. Just look for the silver-grey coloured cars with their logo on the doors.

Whether it is at the port in Zakynthos town or at Saint Nicholas in Volimes, there will always be a taxi waiting for the ferry arrivals.

When arriving at the airport you will notice the taxi rank right outside the doors to your right as you walk out. The association has their price list shown at the rank, as they have standard fares that are not priced by the kilometer. The association has their taxi ranks available in Zakynthos town, all the tourist resorts around the Island and of course, is on call twenty-four hours a day.

PIRATING…..

To combat pirating the association has made their prices available, not only at the airport taxi rank but they have representatives within the arrival hall handing out leaflets with their prices printed on them. Look out for the girls with the red and white ZANTE TAXI T-shirts who are always with a smile and ready to welcome you to Zakynthos.

PRICE LISTS EVERYWHERE…..

EXAMPLE ONLY
EXAMPLE ONLY….prices may have changed please look below for new price list.

 

 

The price list is also available at hotels, restaurants and to any other person who would like the list. As you get into the taxi the price list is located in the seat pockets of the taxi, leaflets are also available, just ask the driver.  As pirating has become a huge problem over the years it is important for our guests to be aware of what to look out for and of course the price that you should be charged with before getting into any vehicle that is used for transport. For this reason Informer would like to point out a few things….

1) All radio taxi cars are silver grey in colour (THEY DO NOT COME IN ANY OTHER COLOUR)

2) all radio taxi cars are equipped with a radio that is connected to the operation control headquarters. (Thus if a problem arises it can be solved immediately)

3) all radio taxi cars are chipped and are connected to the GPS tracking system that is connected to headquarters. . (ensuring safety for the driver and passengers)

4) all radio taxi cars have the taxi number plate starting with the letters TAZ followed by a four digit number e.g TAZ 0000. (Avoid getting into pirate operated cars)

    Great report…….Hopefully drivers read it… Hate been ripped off by anybody & taxi drivers seem to be well qualified in this area!!! Is there any additional charge for calling out a taxi through the call centre? Again, Thank you for this comprehensive report…

    • Thank you for you kind words… The prices are a standard rate from the taxi ranks if you would like to book your taxi then there is an extra 2euros on top of the rate for the booing service. Any other additional information required concerning the Taxi Association please call Greece +30 2695048400.
