Dodekanisos Express tickets

Postby ElleJay » 23 Aug 2010, 15:35

Hiya

Me again, we are planning to catch the Dodekanisos Pride at 08:30 on Sunday 5 September. What's the best way to get the tickets? On line? or at the harbour? Can we buy them in Rhodes town at all? As we are in Rhodes from Wed to Saturday we could easily buy them beforehand.

Any advise appreciated.

Thank you

ElleJay :-)

The Dodekanisos boats leave from Kolonna Harbour, and there is a ticket office right where they moor. Most people will buy tickets there on the morning of departure, which opens about 7.30 am. However there are lots of travel agencies around the New Town area of Rhodes and almost all of them will be able to sell you tickets in advance. If you want to book on line you can do, and then pick up the tickets from the Kolonna ticket office on the day.

Many thanks for that Andy, think we will get the tickets in Rhodes before departure.

Kind regards

Hi
We'll be leaving Symi on 9th October, probably on the 17:45 Dodekanisos Pride. Are these ferry departure times reliable? We have a late evening flight to catch from Rhodes and want to be sure we're back on Rhodes in time. Can't wait to be in Symi in four weeks time!!!

Hi Nicola

Ferry times, particularly for the Dodekanisos boats, are pretty reliable. However, this is Greece! ;)

Breakdowns and the weather can affect the schedules so you should keep an eye on things and check with the ticket agents on Symi while you're there.

Have a fantastic time on Symi.

There's currently a 10% discount available for booking Dodek tickets online and a generous 50% if you book - I think - a week or more ahead. Paymnt is online via credit or debit card, in euros.

In Rhodes you can collect your tickets from the office at Kolona; in Symi from the Symi Tours office. I wish I'd known about this sooner as I've just missed out on the 50% for our outbound tickets (next Monday, gloat gloat) but achieved it for our return.

Just out of curiosity, how much does it cost on the Dodecanese Express to go to and from Symi? Just wondering for next year as although doing a package with Thomas Cook will probably try and get the 3 o'clockish Dodec Express (if still running) rather than hang about.
