Dodekanisos Express tickets

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.

It's currently 15euros each full fare, so only 7.5 if you're an early online booker.

Thanks for that tip Jan. I'd spotted the 10% online discount but not the 50% one (it's well hidden isn't it?).

Like you I only got the 50% on the return crossing but it's still saved enough for six Mythos. ;)

So Pachos will be doing well - as usual - from both us and you, Allan.

I only found the discount when checking schedules for friends who will be calling into Symi en route from Lipsi to Rhodes. They'll be saving over 40euros between them - and I shall be first in the queue to help them spend it.

Thanks Jan. No doubt the fares will have gone up by next year, but gives us an idea of what the prices are likely to be. Unfortunately cannot take up the good offer this year, but will keep an eye in case they do the same thing next year.

Hmph! I didn't see the 50% when I booked a couple of tickets for next week! Got the 10% though, so have saved enough for one Mythos.

I guess it depends on how far in advance you book Jon. My Rhodes-Symi tickets are for two weeks time and they were at 10% discount but the return trip two weeks later came up as 50% off. Actually, it gave the option of choosing between 10% or 50% :o

Normally I wouldn't dream of booking so far in advance but hey, six Mythos is not to be sniffed at!

Well, you could.....


Pleased to hear you saved enough for my one Mythos though.
