When making an online booking, one cannot select adjacent or specific seats because ferry companies do not provide seating charts presenting the available seats on each ship on our website’s booking platform. In any case, the system attempts to place passengers in the same booking in adjacent seats, however, this is not guaranteed. Should you wish to book adjacent seats, provided the ferry company you have selected has a seating chart, you can either make your booking over the telephone or at our establishment with the help of our customer service team.
4.5 Economy tickets
Economy tickets are usually not subject to cancellations. These tickets are offered by ferry companies in limited numbers and involve specific ferry routes. Always read the specific terms and conditions of ferry companies concerning these tickets as they are often amended by ferry companies and our company is not in any way liable for these amendments.
While making an online booking via our website’s platform, you will find the basic discounts offered by ferry companies. In order to benefit from any additional special discounts which are not displayed on our results kindly contact our customer support for further assistance.
4.7 Ferry company offers
Ferry company offers appearing during the booking process only apply if they are also available at the time of issuance of the tickets. It is at the discretion of the ferry companies to withdraw offers in the period between the booking and issuance of tickets. As a result, our company is not liable for any cancellation, change, or withdrawal by the ferry companies of any discounts during the above time period.
4.8 Collection of tickets
You can collect your tickets, free of charge, from our company’s offices during our office hours or from the central agents which are usually based at the port of departure/arrival. You are exclusively responsible for the proper and timely collection of your tickets from our offices.
4.9 Changes to / delays in ship routes
It is impossible for us to notify you about any cancellations or changes to routes (departure gate, change of time, etc.) taking place after the tickets have been issued. You should therefore contact the relevant ferry company or one of its central agents in order to be notified as to the above changes. We will make every possible effort to notify you in due time if there are any significant changes to your booking, provided that we, in turn, are notified in due time, prior to your scheduled departure. We bear no liability for any changes or charges that may occur.
4.10 Cases of manifest error
In the case of a manifest error (including any mistakes in the entry of data, calculation errors, or typographical errors) resulting in the appearance of a price that has clearly appeared by mistake, we reserve the right to cancel your booking, even if you have received automated confirmation from us. In such a case, you will be notified as soon as possible so that you can book again at the right price if you so wish. In any case, you shall not be entitled to claim compensation for the cancellation in question or claim any expenses that may have occurred as a result of the incorrect booking that has already been canceled.
In certain cases, you may be asked to provide proof of your identity in addition to the information you provide us on the charging and payment of your booking. This information may be requested during the booking process, the payment process or at any other subsequent time. We reserve the right to cancel your booking if we do not receive proof of your identity when requested, without any liability whatsoever.
We also reserve the right to cancel your booking at any time for reasons of safety or protection against cases of fraud. This comes within the framework of our company’s operation and the procedures we have developed for purposes of protection, safety, and detection of fraud so that we can receive reports on problems regarding payment cards that have been used, emails used during the booking process, etc. In these cases, we will attempt to contact you using the email address you provided when making your booking. If we do not manage to reach you, we may cancel your booking without any liability whatsoever.
4.11 Cases of pre-authorizations
In certain rare cases, it may be impossible to complete the booking process due to a technical problem or complication in the final stage of booking your tickets.
This may occur due to a lack of communication between the various systems used during the booking process or due to the expiry of the time in which the booking should have been made or due to a delay in the authorization of the booking by the bank or cardholder.
This would result in the failure to book the selected tickets, however, the corresponding amount may already have been frozen.
In these cases, the transaction is not completed by the bank and the amount that has been frozen is not transferred to our company’s account. On the contrary, it is held by the bank, in accordance with the protocol applied by banks on secure electronic transactions and cardholder protection. Consequently, it cannot be used by the cardholder until the bank itself releases the amount. Once the amount is pre-authorized and held in order to charge the amount of the tickets, it will appear in the card holder’s statement of account as having been regularly charged, even though this will not have occurred.
For as long as this amount is frozen, it cannot be used in accordance with the bank’s security protocols, so even if you wish to make the booking, you will have to make a new transaction.
You can try to make a new booking via our website and choose any combination you want. Otherwise, you can contact our customer support and make your booking through them, by charging your credit, debit, or prepaid card.
