Greece- Italy Ferries

we are considering ferry travel from Igoumenitsa -Italy on our road back to the UK in December.Prior to driving the Bulgaria - Balkan route home we had done the ferry route many times before but always pre booked on line with one of the ferry operators. I was just wondering whether it would be cheaper turning up on spec and buying the tickets at the ferry terminal. Has anyone done this recently and if so what was your experience re difference in costs.

We've used this route 3 times and each time found that if its booked early, there is a discount. The prices we paid were certainly cheaper than paying on the day. Good luck

Hi Jandj. Thanks for your post. Yes - you can get up to 30% reduction in price both by booking early and booking a return trip. However 3 years ago we turned up at the ferry terminal on our day of departure and booked our tickets for the evening sailing and the price was even cheaper than the 30% reduction we could have achieved on line. We mused as to whether it was a mistake so the next year we did the same and hey ho with the same result. The reason for the threadstarter was to check out with others like yourself who have done the same trip and experienced a different outcome. Personally I would think it is entirely feasible that it is cheaper to book on the day at the ferry terminal and that my experience was not a mistake or error.

Re: Greece- Italy Ferries

We have never pre booked & have always found it cheaper at the ticket offices.

One thing to keep your eye on are ferry strikes. The last time we drove back we just missed a planned industrial action by 20 mins. When we got on the boat everyone knew about it except us. The strike was actually in Italy, so we would have sailed but been stuck on the ferry an extra day.
