Crete, the largest of the Greek Islands, has two international airports. If you’re staying towards the west of the island, the Chania International Airport "Daskalogiannis" (CHQ) is your closest, located about 20min outside of Chania. A little more central is the Heraklion "Nikos Kazantzakis" International Airport (HER).
One of the most popular places to stay from which to explore the Greek Islands is Santorini, with its central location and picturesque towns. You could fly into Santorini Airport (JTR) and stay in Thera, located about 20min from a large ferry wharf where you can catch ferries to many of the nearby islands. Another good option is Mykonos, served by the Mykonos International Airport (JMK).
If you are staying in one of the major centres on the mainland, you will find very useable public transport to transfer you to the city. Athens and Thessaloniki even have a subway system. However, as you head out to the smaller islands, buses can become more irregular. Taxis are readily available at the airports, and a great way to navigate the busy roads.
If you’re visiting the UNESCO heritage site Meteora, you will find it’s very easy to access from both Athens and Thessaloniki. Buses and trains regularly run from the cities. The train from Athens is considered incredibly scenic and takes about 4h. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay, you will find accommodation in Kalabaka or in nearby Trikala. As one of the most popular sites in the country, it is recommended to book your visit and accommodation before your trip.

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.
We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.
Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
