Why book ferry tickets to Greece online and in advance?

Share this post:

Until a couple of decades ago, tourists to Greece would go to the port and buy their ferry tickets to the Greek islands directly from there, just before the ferry departure. Some of them had not even arranged an accommodation on a specific Greek island: they just went to the port and bought ferry tickets for the first available route. Or they went to their preferred island and looked for accommodation on the spot.

Over the last years, with the evolution of technology, tourists now have the possibility to buy tickets to Greece and the Greek islands online, and way in advance before the traveling date. Why is this better? Why is it more convenient to book ferry tickets to Greece online?

Have everything scheduled

You can have your entire ferry trip to the islands easily scheduled many weeks before coming to the country. Book your ferry tickets and island hopping in Greece depending on your flight date and time. This way, you will avoid any unpleasant situation, such as lack of ferry schedules on your day of convenience or no ticket availability, especially in high season.

Avoid problem of availability

High season (July and August) is a very busy period for the Greek ferries. Especially in August, ferries are usually fully-booked many weeks before the traveling date. If you are traveling around the Greek islands in August, in order to avoid any problem of availability, you are advised to book your ferry tickets to Greece at least 1-2 months before.

In some cases, it also happens that deck or air seats for some popular routes, for example ferry routes to Mykonos, Santorini, Paros, Naxos and other Cycladic islands, run out quickly and only some expensive seats remain available. Therefore you eventually get to pay a ticket much more than you had originally planned.

Have more options in ferry trips

The online booking engines usually give more options regarding ferry trips and companies than a local travel agency that cooperates only with the largest ferry companies. As you get more options, you can arrange your schedule better.
