Transportation Options from Hotel in Athens to Athens International Airport

We are 4 adults leaving Athens in May after a tour. We will be staying in Athens near the Prison of Socrates. What is the best means for getting from our accommodations to the Airport? It doesn't look like there is a rail station near our apartment....

Taxi. We used Welcome pick ups which you can schedule on line in advance. I learned it from this forum.

Thank you. I just looked online at the Welcome Pick Ups and it does look like a good option.... Appreciate your insight...

We have been using private transfer companies for our last few trips.

We have used City Cab. They have picked us up at 5AM and the driver was waiting for us at 10 to 5. Very reliable. Because you pay in advance on their web site there is no issue with making payment to the driver which sometimes happens with taxi drivers..

Thank You Stanbr. We are definitely going to prebook. I appreciate your information. Good to find companies that have been used and have had good results rather than just randomly choosing one...

Stan. When you booked City Cab did they require you to give them one of the Passport ID's once you confirmed your ride? I received a confirmation asking for the names of all of our adults and one passport ID number. Just wondering if that is "normal"... Thanks.

We have not been to Greece since 2019. We did not have to provide a passport number back then. We did have to pay in advance and supply flight numbers but that was it. For some reason procedures must have changed.
