Greek Islands Pass

Hi all! 

I was trying to reserve a ferry from Athens to Crete, and I can’t seem to find the Eurail discount option. Attached is a screenshot of a different route, the discount is very clear and easy to find. But whenever I try to book to/from Crete, it won’t appear. 

I believe the pass allows us to travel to Crete as well. I checked all three websites (Superfast, Blue Star and Hellenic) and I keep finding the same scenario. The discount just doesn’t show up within the options. 

Any ideas? Thanks a lot!!

Please check the Greek Islands pass page on how to book.

Hi, I am having the same issue! I can’t find anywhere online that says how to book these ferries using the pass. Even when I check in February the economy option isn’t even available on these ferries, so it’s not like they’ve already booked out in june as well. Do you have any updates on what you did/how you booked the ferry to crete using the pass?

You can now book domestic ferries online:

This is also mentioned on the page on the Greek Islands pass:

https://www.eurail.com/en/eurail-passes/one-country-pass/greek-islands

It seems to me this is the first place to check for information.

However, I did a test booking from Piraeus to Heraklion and indeed I didn't see the Interrail or Eurail discount option appear. I suggest you send an email to the appropriate address mentioned on the information page, under the Reservations heading.
