Hi,

Most of the ferry companies in Greece are a similar price for the more up-to-date compaies. The cheaper ones tend to be very old and slow at getting around. They are also notorious for being late, I mean really late. A few years ago we took a cheap late night ferry from Skiathos to Lesvos which was meant to depart at 01.30 hours. It eventually turned up at about 08.00 the next morning, so be warned !. The cheapest way around is to take late night trips with companies like Blue Star and Flying Dolphins for example. Try to avoid Agoudimos and G+A Ferries at all costs !. But in general it is not cheap with a van especially if its over 6mtr in length.

Enjoy the trip though.

Regards, Stuart.
