We are excited to announce the relaunch of our Ferries booking system. The new system will make booking Mediterranean ferries a breeze. You can now select ports for Greece, Italy and Turkey to quote, book and pay for Mediterranean ferries online.

Follow on for our simple steps to quoting your next ferry ticket!


Click on ‘Ferries’ in the top right navigation bar, the drop-down will appear, select Greece & Mediterranean.


You will now be on the ferry booking system. Before proceeding, make sure to select either the highlighted ‘return’ or ‘one-way’ option. Now, select your destination – Greece, Italy or Turkey.


Once a country is selected, all ports available for this destination will appear in the departure search. Select your departure port before moving onto the arrival port. When selecting an arrival port, this will automatically filter to the available routes after departure port is chosen.


Select your depart date followed by return date. If you have selected ‘one-way’ it will only prompt you to select depart date.


Use the drop down to select the number of passengers travelling. Click search.


Your search results will appear with available rates for the dates and route selected. There are a number of filters which will narrow the result. These filters include; by ferry company, departure time, arrival time. Each result will display the ferry company, from price, departure and arrival.

Click the orange ‘select seat’ button on your desired option.


You will now be prompted to add details for each passenger and select the seat type. Complete all details then click the orange ‘select ferry’ button.


The orange ‘choose return journey’ button will now appear, as well as a displayed summary of your departure trip. Simply click the orange button and follow steps 6 and 7 to fill out your return trip details.


After return trip details are completed, you will now have a summary of departure and return journeys. If you are happy with your selection, click the orange ‘proceed to booking’ button, otherwise select edit in the top grey navigation bar to adjust dates, ports or number of passengers.


You are almost at the end! You will now see a grey box on the top of the page with a summary of your booking. Once you are happy with pricing and dates, continue on, and enter each passengers details, and ticketing option. You can now choose whether you would like the ticket in the form of an ‘e-voucher’ or ‘printed ticket’ (printed ticket option not available to agents in North America). An e-voucher can be emailed to the client, who will then need to exchange at the specified departure point. Alternatively, at an extra cost the ‘printed ticket’ option can be selected and the Excite Holidays team will print and send the actual ferry ticket(s) to your agency. If opting for the printed ticket, double check the postal address listed is correct.

Make sure to read through all the important information and agree to the terms & conditions before hitting the red ‘proceed’ button.

After clicking proceed, you have now created a quote for your ferry ticket(s). At this stage, the item(s) will be quoted only, and in order to book these, full payment is required on the following page.


Your quote will appear for confirmation. To book, simply click the ‘confirm quote’ button and continue on to make payment to complete your booking.
