Before you proceed with the online booking of Ferry Tickets Greece, it might be useful to know that there are some particular cases that you might encounter issues with, for example:
- For some greek ferries, you can not book ferry tickets for a trip, where the time margin between the date of the booking and the date of the departure is less than 8 days or you are interested in a special event day (ie: Easter, 1st of May).
- In case the tickets you wish to book, concern separate companies, you should make separate bookings, one for each company.
- The cabin/seat you have selected is not available. (What might happens is that the system shows availability. But at the same time someone else is trying to book the same accommodation/type of seat. If they complete their reservation before you and there are no more seats available, you will not be able to finalize your reservation).
- There is availability but our allotment for the specific departure has run out. (On most departures there is no limit regarding the number of tickets that we can issue as long as there is availability. Unfortunately for some specific departures this limit exists. Usually we have a great allotment but in summer it is possible that our allotment runs out for a specific departure. In that case you should contact us in order to book your tickets for the grrrk ferries, off-line.)
- You try to book a special offer.
In these cases please feel free to contact us by e-mail or by phone. You will receive the best offer – Ferry Tickets Greece – from our staff for the ferries you requested or for the next best solution we can offer.
Schedules and Availability: On Line booking system is automatically updated in real time with schedules and prices but displays only approved departures enabled for bookings. Departures under the status “approval waiting” are not shown. Schedules are added gradually, usually 2/3/or 4 months in advance. So in February you might find some departures for the summer season. During March & April though more departures will appear. Finally during May the complete time tables for the coming season will be finalized. Therefore if you attempt any search and you get the message: “Itinerary Selection. No departures for this specific itinerary. Please select another itinerary or change your date of departure” just ignore it! Try again later, because this message describes the situation as mentioned up above.
Confirm your Departure: As all means of transportation, so the ferrie’s scheduled departure can change or even be cancelled due to imponderable factors (eg: engine failure, weather conditions). In some cases that the ferry company deems that this is absolutely necessary.
We strongly recommend that passengers verify their own departure 24 hours prior to embarkation, to a local agent of the ferry company they are travelling with.

Multiple reservations – Unique shipment for tickets:
