Greece, Ticketing Information

In order to organise your holidays successfully it is necessary to have the right information on plane and ferry schedules to, from and between the islands and/or cities you want to visit. Our agency is located in Greece, the country you want to visit, and we are, therefore, much better able to give accurate information in a timely manner. Our ticketing department can provide you with:

  • Domestic Air Tickets with all major local airlines
  • International Air Tickets to/from Greece, for all destinations and with the majority of the airlines
  • Domestic ferry, high speed ferry/hydrofoil tickets to the Greek islands, with all major shipping companies (Hellenic Seaways, Blue Star Ferries, ANEK, Minoan, SeaJets...)
  • International Ferry Tickets to/from Italy (Minoan, Superfast, ANEK)

  • Our online ticket reservation system does not accept bookings on sailings departing in less than 3 days from today. If you need to travel earlier, please contact us for offline reservations.

  • It is now possible to make "Round Trip" or "Multi Leg" bookings even on different ferry companies.
