It is not very long ago the period when tourists would come to Greece and buy their ferry tickets to the Greek islands directly from the port, just before the ferry departure. Some tourists had not even decided on which island to go and would just buy ferry tickets for the next available trip. Today that technology has evolved, tourists can buy their Greek ferry tickets online way before the traveling date. Why need to book ferry tickets to Greece online and in advance?
Arrange better traveling details
If you have arranged your ferry routes to Greece and the Greek islands, you can schedule better your traveling details. For example, many tourists arrange their flight home from Athens airport depending on the ferry routes from the Greek islands. If the ferry schedule is not convenient, they choose to spend a night in Athens and take the flight the next day.
More ferry trips to choose
If you check online for ferry schedules, you usually find more options on ferry routes than if you buy tickets directly from a local travel agency that usually cooperates only with the largest Greek ferry companies. More options on ferry routes give you better possibilities to arrange your trip.
Find tickets for sure
Although ferry routes in Greece are numerous in summer, ferries will probably be fully-booked in high season months (July and August). This is the case especially in popular routes, such as ferries from Athens to Santorini, Mykonos, Paros, Naxos and other Cycladic islands, from Volos to Skiathos, or from Athens to Crete. This is why we suggest our clients book their Greek ferry tickets at least 2 months before if their ferry trip takes place in August.
Also in this busy period, it happens frequently that budget ferry tickets, like a deck or air seats, run out quickly. Therefore tourists will eventually have to buy more expensive tickets, like business seats or cabins, and will result in paying their tickets much more than their original budget.
Stay informed with email or SMS
Our online travel agency keeps you informed with email on any change of plans or vessel regarding your trip. If the change is last-minute or if a delay comes up, we will send you an SMS.
Have your Greek ferry tickets at hand
Upon completing your online booking through our engine, you can choose to have your Greek ferry tickets sent at your home or office or to pick them up from our port kiosk just before your trip. In any case, you will be sure that you have tickets to board the ferry and start your wonderful holidays to Greece.
