How to find cheap ferry tickets in Greece

Greece ● 06 December 2017
 

If you want to find cheap ferry tickets in Greece, you should take into consideration these travel tips that will help you spend Greek vacation on a budget. You don't have to pay a fortune in order to travel between the Greek islands. Travelling from one island to another at reasonable prices was never easier!

Budget vacations

Buy island passes

If you have heard about the Greek Island Hopping and you want to explore many Greek islands during your vacation, the key is to buy island passes for many flexible routes. The distance between the Greek islands is very short, and you can easily travel from one island to another within an hour or even less. However, if you buy separated ferry tickets for each route, the whole island-hopping journey will be expensive and strictly scheduled. Your best chance is to buy a pass, such as Greek Island Pass, which allows you to make several routes to many Greek islands whenever you want paying only the one route.

Book online

If you book ferry tickets online, you can find really good ferry deals in Greece. You just print or load in your smartphone the ticket, and you are ready to travel exactly like having bought an air-ticket. Without booking fees, buying your ferry ticket online is not only simpler but also cheaper than doing that in a travel agency.

Travel in low-season

During the low-season, ferry tickets are considerably cheaper than in the high-season. Plus, are being offered exclusive ferry deals that will make your whole trip affordable. The weather in Greece is warm and sunny from April to October, so don't be afraid to try this solution if you want to spend budget vacation in Greece.

Travel by boat

Ferries are more expensive than boats. Of course, boats are slower than ferries, but if you have plenty of time and you don't find the time on the boat boring, you should consider this alternative. The distance between the Greek islands is short, so travelling by boat will not take much longer than the ferry. Plus, boats are very convenient for those, who suffer from nausea.

Group or student tickets

Don't forget to check if there are special prices for some people. Many companies offer discount on student or group tickets, and this discount can be up to 50%.

Travel deck

You may think that travelling on deck may be tiring, but the truth is that this kind of trip is fascinating. You meet new people, feel the sea on your face and watch the seagulls follow the boat until your destination paying much less than travelling in airline seats.
