Discounted prices on ferries

It is often possible to buy these discounted ferry tickets in advance. We recommend you purchase these tickets in advance when planning to travel during high season. To make your booking, contact the ferry company directly. In some cases, you can buy the ticket with the discount already included. Occasionally however, you will have to buy the full fare ticket and the ferry company will refund the discount.


For free passage on international ferry routes, your Pass must be valid for the country of departure and arrival. For discounted passage, your Pass must be valid for the country of departure or arrival.

Travel days and ferries

When traveling by night ferry (Superfast, Minoan or Blue Star Ferries) you have to use a travel day and fill in the day of departure in your travel calendar. If you are still on this ferry after midnight, you don't have to use a second travel day, unless you board a second ferry.


If you're travelling on a discounted ferry, you don't have to use a travel day.


Please note that you cannot start your travel before the first day of validity on your Pass.

If you have a need for speed, or want to travel at night to save costs, we've got you covered.
