Where do you want the costs calculated from? I can't help as I drive myself but others who may be able to will need to know your point of departure.
Good luck

'Taxi' and 'approx costs' really dont come into the same equation in Cyprus.

For that trip I and most drivers I know would charge £25, day or night for a normal 4 seat taxi.
Although I pick up and drop off there all the time, I don't work at the airport so don't make trips from there to Limassol, but I'd guess it's around £22-25.

Despite the constant slagging we taxi drivers get we're not all trying to rip people off, we can make a good living without it, believe me, if a driver is found to be overcharging he can get a bad time from the other drivers.

Yes, and when customers come and ask for a price.

Last year I picked up somebody who'd been charged £35 from the airport to Ayia Napa, I found out who had done it and confronted him, these people kill the business for the rest of us.
