The allure of the Greek islands has become more accessible for travelers thanks to the Greek Islands Pass offered in collaboration with Eurail/Interrail. Now, travelers enjoying the affordable train service have the opportunity to discover the Greek islands as they hop from one island to the next, using the Attica Group’s ferry services between Italy and Greece and across the Aegean.
The popular pass – launched as the Attica Pass last year – gives holders two international ferry trips between Italy (Ancona, Bari, Venice) and Greece (Corfu, Patras, Igoumenitsa). Beyond that, it allows for free train or bus travel from Patras to Piraeus and back. The focal point of the offer, however, is the inclusion of travel to four islands from a selection of 27 Aegean destinations using Superfast Ferries.
In total, there are six ferry trips included within a 1-month period at a value-for-money rate. Users can create a tailor-made program by selecting from a wide range of islands from the most popular hotspots to remote sanctuaries. These include Anafi, Amorgos, Astypalaia, Chios, Crete, Donoussa, Ios, Iraklia, Kalymnos, Kastellorizo, Kos, Koufonissi, Leros, Lesvos (Mytilene), Lipsi, Mykonos, Naxos, Nisyros, Patmos, Paros, Rhodes, Santorini, Schinoussa, Symi, Syros, Tilos and Tinos.
Travelers who want to explore more islands can add more destinations onto their itinerary, getting a 30 percent discount on their new purchases.
The pass is particularly affordable, costing just $245-€214.5 (first class) and $177-€102 (second class) for adults over 25 years, and $211-€185 (first class) and $160-€140 (second class) for youth aged from 12-25 years of age, whereas children under 11 travel for free.
