Freequently asked questions (F.A.Q.)
do I purchase a ticket?/ Do you make reservations?/ Can bookings be made abroad?
As a publishing company, we supply available information on
domestic sea schedules only.
For any further services, such as tickets, reservations and
bookings, you should address the shipping company operating the
route of your choice.
Details for the shipping companies such as telephone fax numbers
and e-mails are listed in our site.
you confirm the schedules?
Our main sources of information are the shipping companies and the Merchant Marine Ministry. The schedules listed in our site
are updated twice monthly after contacting and checking with the
shipping companies. In the meantime, many changes can happen
until the next time we update our site. Therefore, it is best to
contact the shipping company operating the route of your choice
and confirm your schedule before travelling.

numbers are listed in our site.
you provide me with ticket prices?
The ticket prices are only included in our monthly travel guide "Greek Travel Pages". They are the official ones, that is before each shipping company adds on any premiums, percentage for discounts and commissions that differ from one shipping company to another.
So, you have to contact the shipping company operating the route of your choice in order to be informed on the actual price.

cannot find the connection I'm looking for
If you are having a problem finding the connection you are looking for, you either:
- typed the origin or destination location wrongly or
- there is no connection between the locations you chose or
- there is no connection on the date of your travel
can I find all the connections with an origin/destination port?
If you need to find all the connections of an origin or destination port, you have to type the location in either the origin or destination box only and submit your request. You will then get a drop down list of all the connections.
How can I find a destination?
There are three ways to search for a destination. The map search, the hierarchical search and the special search. Each one of these search methods helps you trace a destination within Greece. The map search assists your search through the use of maps. The hierarchical search gives you the opportunity to search within a specific Region or Prefecture. And, finally, the special search provides tools to search by postal code or telephone code,
location name or location code, and a location by its classification.
