Hydra 2019 Anybody on Stansted - Athens flight Thurs 6 June arr 14.25?

Postby Stephanie Z » Tue May 28, 2019 9:36 pm

Hi,

I'm travelling on the Ryanair flight from London FR15 on Thurs 6 June, scheduled to arrive in Athens at 14.25. I've booked the 5pm ferry & taking just hand luggage in the hope that there are no delays. It will still be tight and I'm wondering if anybody was going to be on the same flight & would like to share a taxi if need be?

Thanks, Brian. Yes. I'm hopeful this will be the way to go, but am worried in case the flight is delayed for any reason.

There is another boat that leaves for the island at 19.00 hours. It will give you more time and comfort to travel from the airport to the harbour. You can change your ferry ticket to this last boat of the day without cost. It's only a bit of a hassle since you first have to pay and book your new ticket and then request a refund of the old one. Worked for me 2 years ago.

We arrive that Thursday around 16.00 hours at Athens airport and have the 19.00 ferry to Hydra. Good luck and see you at Hydra!

Thanks, Hugo! Do you know if that means that if I miss the ferry and buy another ticket on the spot that I can get a refund on the old one? Or if I switch the ticket before I leave, and arrive in time for the earlier one can I use the booking on the earlier one? Might see you on the 19.00! s

No, you have to change the tickets upfront, as far as I know there is no refund if you miss the ferry and want to go on a later one. But maybe I will be corrected by someone. The one way tickets costs about 28 euro, if I was in your position I would try to make the 17.00 ferry and if that goes wrong buy another ticket there for the 19.00 ferry. Waste of money, I know but it is only money ;-)

Four years ago we missed our ferry because of delayed flight. We had to buy new tickets, but the original payment was refunded five months later to my credit card. However, I cannot guarantee that this is still the policy.

Thank you Hugo and Jarkko. That's what I shall do. Try for the 5pm, and if we're late there may be other passengers I can find wanting to get to Piraeus quickly. And if that fails, buy another ticket.
