There is a service fee only for ferry ticket orders made through our website. Our company is obliged to charge a service fee in order to be able to provide and maintain the best possible service to its clients. The service fee is charged once per "shopping basket purchase" i.e. even if many reservations are made, they can be placed in a shopping basket and then be checked-out all together paying only one service fee.
The service fee tarriff is as follows:
|Ticket Orders||Service fee|
|Up to 260 Euros||8 Euros|
|More than 260 Euros||3% of the total ferry tickets' cost (excluding delivery)|
Cancellations: Cancellations are subject to penalty fees according to each shipping company's policy. You can find details in our "Ticketing terms & conditions" section.
Moreover, our company charges a 5,00 euro charge for each cancellation. Ferry ticket cancellation is a time consuming and costly process, which consists of letter exchange with the shipping company involved, and effort to recover the actual ticket from our client in order to be able to return it to the shipping company. If we do not return the one cancelled the shipping company charges us for it, even though we have refunded our client.Changes: There is a 5,00 euro extra charge for all changes made after the issuance of the tickets. In order to change a ticket already issued we are obliged to cancel the previous one and issue a new one. The same time consuming and costly process as for the cancellations applies. This is also why our service fee is non-refundable.
Due to the above reasons, cancellations cannot be done online. You have to contact us through email or phone in order to order a cancellation.

The large majority of ferry operators require passengers to hold a printed paper ticket in order to board a ferry. Some ferry operators are starting to provide passengers with the alternative to web check-in just like airlines do. These are:
In order to web check-in, after finalizing your booking via danae, you will need to insert the reservation number and your last name in order to check in online in the respective operator's page.
When booking routes between Italy and Greece, most shipping companies give special offers according to the season, the number of travellers and/or vehicles and the combination of trips. Some of those offers are available through the online booking system and some are not. Once you select your trip, you can find info about each offer below the search results. In case an offer is not available online, we will direct you to fill in your details and request a quotation. We will then find which offer is suitable for you and promptly reply your request. You may also see info abouth each company's offers if you click on the "Details" link on the right side of each company.
Note that offers cannot be combined. In case multiple offers apply, the one with the highest discount is selected.
