Types of seats


What ultimately determines the price of your ticket is the type of seat you will choose.
The most popular and affordable option is the standard/economy seats. Seeing as they are not numbered, you will have to keep an eye on your seat for the entire duration of the journey. As they are not numbered, you will need to keep an eye on your seat during the journey. As you are not offered a specific seat in advance, we recommend that you board the ship at the earliest possible time to find a comfortable place to sit.
Another option is the airplane seats, which are located in a separate lounge. They are numbered and more comfortable and are the most economical seats that you can book just for you in advance.
For luxury travel, there are also Business/VIP seats, which are situated in a separate lounge and are more expensive.
On high-speed ferries, there are only numbered seats, so a standard ticket corresponds to an airplane seat.


How to find your ferry in the port of Paros (Parikia Port)

Parikia, the main port of Paros

Ferries from Paros to Mykonos depart from Parikia Port, the main port of Paros, which is located in the capital city of the island. As it is small in size, spotting your ferry is very easy.

All ferries bound for Mykonos arrive at Tourlos port, the main port of the island, which is located only 3 km from Mykonos Town.

Both islands are highly popular among both Greeks and foreigners. The considerable number of visitors causes traffic within and around the port, so being there at least 1 hour before the scheduled departure time is strongly recommended.

Luggage policies in Greek ferries are quite flexible.
Most companies allow 40 kg or 0.5 cubic meters of luggage per passenger and provide a luggage storage area on each ferry. If you wish, though, you can take your luggage with you to the lounges or the deck (if available).
It is recommended to leave bulky suitcases in the designated area and take only your personal belongings of significance (wallet, keys, mobile phone, etc.) with you upstairs.


Traveling with a car


In order to take your car or motorbike with you to Mykonos, you will need a vehicle ticket.
Conventional ferries dispose of garages, but, in this case, you should be at the port 60-90 minutes before the official departure time.
For safety reasons, entering the garage while the ferry is sailing is strictly forbidden.
Note: Many car rental companies do not allow customers to ferry their vehicles. We recommend avoiding purchasing a vehicle ticket before contacting your car rental company.


Alternative ways to reach Mykonos


Although there are airports on both islands, no direct flights are available between Paros and Mykonos, as Paros only has a national airport serving direct flights to/from Athens. However, Mykonos boasts an international airport that receives direct flights from several European countries.
Alternatively, you can fly to Athens or Santorini (that also has an international airport) and then take the ferry to Mykonos. Find out more about the routes from Athens to Mykonos and from Santorini to Mykonos.
