My parents are flying into Corfu on June 4. They need a taxi to transfer to Aghios Stephanos.

My Dad gets very anxious about "arrangements" and has become very unhappy at the prospect of picking up a taxi from the airport rank.

Does anyone know and have contact details for a reliable taxi service in the Kassiopi area? A good English speaking telephone manner would help.

Request repeated on the Kassiopi board.

Thank you in anticipation.

Try phoning e-mailing Cosmic travel in Kassiopi. They have helped me out in the past and are English so no probs with the language and reliable even though they are only agents.

Try Alfa Taxis, they cover the North of the island. I am assuming you mean Agios Stefanos NE as you need to be clear on this when booking as there is an Agios Stefanos NW too.

Thank you very much for such a quick response Elliemay. I'll give them a try. Their website seems pretty clear.

I would be interested in hearing your review afterwards (or from anyone else) as I am considering using them to the same area in August. Thank you.

We have used then a few times in the past with no problems whatsoever. That is why I recommended them.

We used them in September for airport transfers to and from Boukari and were totally satisfied with the service. We had a fixed price arranged beforehand which we paid on arrival at our destination together with €20 towards the return journey. Very efficient and competitively priced.

More than happy to feedback... My dad is getting increasingly nervous and it's catching. I need to get them safely in a taxi and dispatched to Ag Steph, then we're off to the port and Paxos for a few days before we rejoin them.

We use them all the time when in Kassiopi and never had a problem in 7 years.

Thank you very much for recommending Alfa.

Friendly smiling taxi driver was waiting for us in arrivals. Pristine Merc taxi easily swallowed all of my parent's luggage, and some of ours.

Drive was comfortable and uneventful. Driver carried all luggage to the door, which was a real bonus for my dad who isn't as strong as he once was.

€54 fee was a bargain and well deserving of a decent tip.

I was such a relief to get them off safely so we could relax and enjoy our break on Paxos.

Just a word of warning - in future I will just give them a call the day before return to airport. I've never had a problem before, and mistakes and mix-ups do happen, but last week we were left waiting in Kalami for a taxi pick up at 8.40am - by 9am no show - so with the help of the lady in the beach shop there (I couldn't understand a word of Greek on their answerphone!) she phoned the Alpha taxi office for me, they said the driver on his way to us had had an accident, and another driver had been sent in his place. 
They called me back full of apologies and said someone would be with us in 30 minutes. They did turn up as promised but by now we were 50 minutes later than we should have been, and getting a little anxious about being late for check-in!!
Needless to say the driver got us safely to the airport and in time for our check in but the journey was a little "scary"! Now call me cynical but I suspect we had been forgotten.
I do not mean to criticise Alpha Taxis in any way - I've used them many times with no problems ever, and will do again, but in future I will just give them a ring the day before return to confirm times etc.
