Paphos Taxis

paphos taxis

Paphos taxis are known for their reliability. Unlike buses, they’re readily available at all times, and most drivers speak English and Russian, making communication easy.

The only downside is that taxi fares in Cyprus can be relatively expensive compared to other modes of transportation.

Here are a few things you should know upfront.

Paphos Taxis Prices

Taxi drivers in Paphos typically don’t love to use meters, although they must have and use them if requested.

You can read more about it here.

In most cases, however, they provide fixed fares based on factors like the time of day, number of passengers, and distance traveled.

Still, these rates are actually pretty reasonable compared to what you’d find in other European cities.

For example, a short ride within the city might set you back around 10-12 euros, while longer trips to nearby attractions such as Aphrodite Water Park in Yeroskipou or Paphos Zoo in Peyia may range from 15 to 25 euros.

Alternatively, for a taxi from Paphos Airport to the city center, the typical fare is 28-35 euros. If you’re open to sharing a taxi or shuttle with others, you could potentially snag a lower price.

A taxi ride from Larnaca Airport to Paphos, on the other hand, is a whole different story.

With the distance between the two cities being slightly over 130 kilometers, the journey is much longer, resulting in significantly higher fares.

On average, a taxi from Larnaca to Paphos may fall between 120-140 euros, while a ride from Paphos to Limassol might reach up to 90 euros.

Here’s a quick overview:

A ride within the city10-12 Euro
A ride from Paphos to nearby villages15-25 Euro
A ride from Paphos Airport to the city center28-35 Euro
A ride from Larnaca Airport to Paphos120-140 Euro
A ride from Paphos to Limassol70-90 Euro

Just to be clear, these prices are per direction.

Important Notes

  • The fares might vary a bit depending on the taxi driver or company, so it’s a good idea to double-check this before you head out.
  • It’s also worth mentioning that taxi drivers only take cash (unless you’re using an app, but we’ll get into that later).
  • If your hotel doesn’t offer transfer services, ask them if they know a good taxi service or if they can help you get a ride for less.
  • Most taxis in Paphos are essentially private cars, so it’s not uncommon for your driver to arrive in a new Mercedes or BMW. For a larger group, they usually go for a minivan.
