From the airport, there is only one connection to Rhodes Town. The service is managed by D.E.S. Rodos, a company of the municipality. The bus stop is located about 300 meters from the airport terminal exit. From Rhodes Town, the stop, on the other hand, is at Averof Street. In both terminals there are bus kiosks where you can buy tickets.

The ticket costs €3.00 for a one-way journey with large baggage, and €2.50 without baggage in the hold. The bus is active every day, from Monday to Sunday, including holidays, with approximately 16-18 trips a day, starting from approximately 05:00 until 22:00.


At the Rhodes airport you will find numerous agencies to rent a car. Given the extent of the island, you may probably need a vehicle to get around the island. Our advice, however, is to book in advance directly online, in order to obtain competitive rates. On the spot, the Greek agencies are cheaper.

As soon as you leave the terminal you will find the taxi rank. Generally a ride to/from the center takes just under 30 minutes with prices starting from €25. There are additional fees for the transport of luggage and additional people.

*The list is subject to change. All links, updated, can be consulted on the official website. Before leaving, it is recommended to inquire about the provisions and rules on COVID-19 in Greece, and on the mandatory nature of the Green Pass. Timetables and connections are subject to change.
