Cost of Ferry tickets

Please select the question relating to your query.

01. Ticket value

The price indicated on your ferry ticket is the FINAL SET TICKET PRICE. The ticket price is the SAME regardless of the vendor –your ticket costs the same even when purchasing it from the ferry company or a travel agency- and your location.

Whether you purchase your ticket in Greece, another European country or even outside Europe, the cost of your ticket is exactly the same.

This price may include discounts you are entitled to, but these discounts and offers are also predefined and apply to everyone that meets the specific criteria, regardless of where they book their tickets from.

The value of your ticket is directly connected to the pricing policy of the ferry company. Prices are relevant to the route, accommodation category and seasonality (low, mid and high season).

Return trip tickets usually include a discount on the inbound ticket. Ferry companies who do not offer return trip discounts only have one price per category per season in their pricelist.

Within Greece €10 5 - 8 working days

Only for international route reservation with Anek-Superfast Ferries

The unfavorable economic situation in Greece has dramatically affected maritime transports. Some Greek ferry companies have been forced, as they claim, to make joint ventures and cut costs in order to survive, starting with the reduction of their commissions towards partner agencies.

The joint venture of Anek Lines and Superfast Ferries has dramatically reduced the profit rate of our cooperation in the last 3 years. In January 2012 we accepted a reduction of 30%. A year and a half later, in May 2014, our commission was reduced yet again, this time by another 23%!

They continue this policy to this day employing new methods for cost reduction, such as the addition of fuel surcharges regardless of the decrease in oil prices, for the sole purpose of minimizing their partners’ earnings. This surcharge is collected by the partner agencies, but not only is no commission is earned, we are also burdened with the credit card commissions that arise from these amounts and have to pay for them out of our own ‘pockets’.

Our company Greekferries Club SA, is admittedly one of the biggest partners of Anek Lines and Superfast Ferries. Unfortunately the extreme reduction of commissions imposed on us no longer covers the expenses and salaries of our qualified employees, responsible for the sales and promotion of this joint collaboration.

In order to continue providing the current level of reliable services to our trusting and demanding customers as well as the 300,000 Greekferries Club members in 7 different languages, we are forced to apply a service fee to sales with the above mentioned companies. (For reservations with other companies where our commission has not been reduced, no service fees apply).

Our charges are as follows:

Announcements

Having analyzed the changes and recent developments for 2018 in Greek shipping, Greekferries Club would like to inform its respectable Members and Clients about the following:

Events:

The Company Minoan Lines S.A. announces that today, 26/10/2017, a framework agreement with ATTICA Holdings S.A. was executed in principle, in order to proceed with the transfer of all the shares it currently holds at the company HELLENIC SEAWAYS S.A. (HSW) as well as to the sale of 2 vessels.

More specifically, this framework agreement includes the following individual and interrelated (en bloc) transactions:

  • The sale from Minoan Lines SA to ATTICA Holdings SA of 37,667,504 shares of HELLENIC SEAWAYS S.A.
  • The purchase by a company owned by the Grimaldi Group, the main shareholder of Minoan Lines SA, of the vessel "SUPERFAST XII" that is owned by ATTICA FERRIES MARITIME COMPANY.
  • The purchase by Minoan Lines SA of the vessel “HIGHSPEED 7”, that is owned by HELLENIC SEAWAYS S.A.

The implementation of the agreement is, inter alia, conditional on the approval of the Hellenic Competition Commission and on securing the necessary corporate and other approvals. The aforementioned transactions will be completed upon the acquisition of control of HSW by ATTICA Holdings S.A., for which the latter has submitted a notice to the Hellenic Competition Commission on the grounds of another transaction, which is currently being examined.

Developments:

If and once the Hellenic Competition Commission has approved the agreement (to be decided in February 2018) for the sale of the maritime company HSW and the two vessels Superfast XII and Highspeed 7, major changes are to be expected in relation to schedules and sailings for certain Aegean routes and perhaps some international sailings also.

First of all, the vessel Superfast XII which currently serves the route Piraeus-Rhodes will have to be replaced by another HSW vessel. At the same time Highspeed 7 having passed over to Minoan Lines, will also be missing from the HSW fleet. Another significant development is that the currently competitive ferries of Blue Star Ferries and Hellenic Seaways operating the routes Piraeus-Paros-Naxos-Santorini and Piraeus-Chios-Mytilene, will no longer be competitive as both will belong to Attica Holdings S.A

Today:

The ferry companies in the current state, have started ticket sales, reservations and early booking offers for 2018. The worst scenario for passengers that purchase their tickets now in order to take advantage of the early booking discounts, would be for them to receive a notification later on that their vessel would depart 1-2 hours earlier or later, or that they would be travelling with a different ferry boat of the same company.

We are prepared:

Our company Greekferries Club with 306.000 Members and Clients has taken all necessary measures and is ready to deal with this new situation. All our Members and Clients that booking through our websites www.greekferries.gr www.ferries-booking.com will be informed FREE OF CHARGE and AUTOMATICALLY via SMS and Email regarding any changes affecting their trip. We have developed and implemented a specific software in our booking system for this purpose.

Always at your service,

Greekferries Club
