5 reasons to book your ferry tickets online

Greek Islands ● 01 March 2018
 

Are you planning your vacation in Greece for this summer? Especially if you have planned an island-hopping trip in order to visit more Greek islands, ferry tickets are important for your journey. Most travellers nowadays book online their accommodation and air-tickets but in regard to the ferry tickets, many people choose to buy them from a travel agency in Greece. Of course, there is always the possibility to do so, but the thing is that booking your ferry tickets online can give you lots of advantages. Have a look at these 5 reasons, and maybe you will reconsider and organise your whole journey online.

Take advantage of ferry deals

When you book your ferry tickets online, it is very likely that you will find much better deals than if you book them in a travel agency. In order to give you motivation for online booking, companies offer you discount and attractive packages for your routes by ferry. For example, Hostelbay gives you the opportunity to book online Greek Island Pass, pay the price of only one ticket and travel to several Cycladic islands on a budget (learn here more)!


Arrange your trip in advance

It is very important that you have organised your vacation in advance, having arranged all the details. You don't want something to go wrong, and you can achieve perfect vacation with great organisation. In addition to accommodation and air-tickets online booking, when you book online also the ferry tickets, you know that everything is under control even before leaving home.


Find more routes

Many maritime companies offer more routes online. Especially if you want to organise your Greek Island Hopping, it is wise to check all the possible routes and timelines in order to make the right combinations between the islands as well as between the air and the ferry tickets. Online, you can have an overview of all the routes.


Book you tickets early

During the high season in Greece, and especially in July and August, it is likely that you won't find ferry tickets to popular islands, such as Mykonos and Santorini, if you don't book them online. So, don't make the mistake to book your hotel on an island without having booked the ferry tickets to this destination. The last thing you want to is to get to Piraeus port in Athens and not to be able to find a boat to go to the islands.


Have the tickets in your smartphone

When you have to organise the summer vacation with the numerous details, the nightmare of forgetting the tickets back home is not impossible. If you don't book online the ferry tickets, you must carry the tickets with you. There is no possibility to depart to the boat without the tickets. But if you book them online, then you will have them in your smartphone as well as via your email. That means you don't have to worry about anything!
