Santorini Transport Company – About
It All Started with One Man
Nick had a vision for a successful transportation business. His vision was inspired from an ancient Greek philosopher. According to a Socrates’ quote; “If you want to achieve something, then first identify your goal and work towards it no matter what happens. Your reputation will automatically grow.” In 1994, Nick bought his first mini van and started providing transfer services for travelers in Santorini island.
In the first year of the company’s operation, the tireless Nick covered more than 17000 miles. He transferred with safety more than 4500 tourists! In 1997 Nick bought two more taxicabs and continued to run his company with this simple plan.
From one Van and two Taxicabs to an Industry Leader
The company today
Being in this business for many years, we have established ourselves as the leading specialists in transportation services in Santorini providing both private and shuttle transfers in Santorini. We use our own licensed and fully insured vehicles and a network of independent mini bus and cab drivers across the island. We offer destination solutions to tourists, individuals, families, small groups, large groups and frequent travelers. Among others, Santorini Airport, Oia, Fira, Imerovigli and Athinios port are only a small sample of the destinations that we serve.
We can customize any trip for any passenger size from individual to large traveler groups. We can accommodate corporate events, tour groups, wedding guests, and conventions. In addition to general door-to-door service, we offer wheelchair-accessible vans (upon request), school and university transportation, corporate account service and non-urgent medical transportation.
Highly Trained Professional Drivers
At Santorini Transport, Safety always comes first. That’s why we hire only the most highly qualified, dedicated professional drivers who meet strictly safety standards. All our drivers maintain acceptable driving records, pass medical and drug tests, and also pass a background check.
The drivers’ training includes learning all of the alternate routes to use when the freeways get clogged. In addition to that, all of them are local people; they know the routes and road conditions very well because they live and drive here all year round.
Over the years, Santorini Transport Company has built strong and long lasting relationships with global vendors – airlines, hotels, travel agencies and taxi companies. But our most valued clients are the independent travelers who have been trusting us since our birth.
