01. How to make a reservation

We offer three ways for you to secure your places on board and finalize your ferry reservation with us.

  • a) ΟΝLINE. By visiting one of our websites:
    On the homepage of each website you will find a search form for passengers and vehicles. Simply enter the details your trip (dates, routes, if you are travelling one way or return etc) and in 3 simple steps you can finalize your ferry booking.
  • b) ΕΜΑΙL. Contact booking@greekferries.gr
    If you want to avoid booking and paying online, if you prefer dealing with a real person to explain the particularities of your reservation, then send us your travel details by email. 30 associates, speaking and writing in 7 different languages (mother tongue level) are at your disposal.
  • c) BY PHONE. Call 0030 2810 529.000 (60 lines).
    You can call us regarding any reservation or information you need. To finalize a ferry reservation, we will have to send you a written offer (fax or email). The process becomes easier if you are a Greekferries Club member and can quote your Bonus per Mile card number to our associate.
  • 02. Ticket collection

    The ferry ticket is a legal document/ receipt proving you have paid for a certain service.

    You may choose:
    a) to have the ticket/s sent to you by registered mail or courier.
    b) to collect the ticket/s from the port office (check-in) in the day
        of departure.

    If we send the tickets to you, there is an additional cost which we describe in detail under the section ‘Cost of Ferry Tickets’. If you prefer collecting the tickets from the port office on the day of departure, this service is free for all international routes. You simply collect them with your reservation code and proof of identification (ID card or passport) from the check-in desk.

    NOTE collection fees apply for the domestic route tickets. Our system informs you of any such charges before the payment step.

    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
