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)

Ferry reservations:

  • 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.

  • *DISCLAIMER:* The timetables, prices and availability status information presented are entered into the system directly by the shipping companies without our intervention and, therefore, Dolphin Hellas has no responsibility for their accuracy and validity.
