The routes to the Greek islands become very popular during the touristic season, i.e. from May to September. Therefore we advise you to book your tickets as soon as you plan your holiday.

Yes. If you travel with any of the following companies you can use an e-ticket:

  • Golden Star Ferries
  • SeaJets
  • Triton Ferries

Lavrio is located 25 kilometers from Athens International Airport. By taxi, the ride is about 30 minutes and costs approximately 45 euros. By bus, it takes at least 60 minutes. Buses run from 06:30 until 22:00 and you have to make a short stop in Markopoulo city to take another bus to Lavrio.

We will send you a URL where you will just have to input your confirmation code. You will then see your ferry ticket which you can either print off or download to your smartphone.
Once you have printed your e-ticket or have it on your phone you can now board your ferry directly. E-tickets are still fairly new in the Greek ferry market, so most likely most people will still use paper tickets. For bigger ferries, you may find that e-tickets are only checked at one entrance point as an electronic scanner is required. For example, stairwell one but not two. However, going forward, e-ticketing will become more popular.
If you don't get an e-ticket you will have to print your ticket. To get your ticket printed make sure you have a printout or a copy of your reservation on your phone and a valid form of photographic ID - for example, your passport or ID card.
  • On foot: Please arrive at least one hour before you travel.
  • By car: Please arrive at least two hours before you travel and in July and August allow for traffic jams on your journey.

Yes, you can take your dog or other pet on the ferry but it isn't possible to book a space in the kennel in advance. All Greek ships by law must have some kennel space.

  • On conventional ferries

    If you are traveling on a conventional ferry (not a fast ferry or catamaran) there is normally space available in the kennels and you should also be able to have your dog on all deck areas (but not inside) with you. Strictly speaking, this is at the discretion of the ferry company but in general you should have no issues - though please take a muzzle with you just in case and keep your dog on a leash at all times. Small sized dogs and cats can travel in the ship as long as they stay inside a special travel box.

    The other option, for absolute peace of mind, is to book a pet cabin. These are like normal cabins but have linoleum flooring. They are also available for day crossings at reasonable prices. This way you don't have to worry about finding space in the kennels and you and your dog or cat can relax. In July and August ferries can get very busy with people and other dogs.

  • On fast ferries or catamarans

    Fast ferries and catamarans will also have kennels but these will be limited in number. In addition, the majority of fast ferries (though there are exceptions) don't have open deck space accessible throughout the journey, so you will not be able to stay out with your pet during your crossing. However, if your pet is small and inside a travel box you will be able to keep him or her inside.

You can take your bike with you for free to or from Lavrio if you travel on large ships such as those from Triton Ferries. However, on ships without a garage, bicycles are normally not allowed inside. You'll see if the ship has a garage when making your reservation. Lavrio can be busy in the summer so it is a good idea to tell a member of the port staff that you have a bike in case you might need extra assistance.
