The shipping ministry this week made readjustments to the maximum allowable pricing of ferry tickets applicable to some ferry services in Greece. These readjustments lead to a some 2.6 percent ferry ticket price reduction.
The decision does not apply to ferry routes on which there is no maximum allowable pricing.
More specifically, the reductions relate to state subsidized routes and free lines between ports which transport no more than 150,000 or 300,000 passengers. For free lines prices are not binding but indicative with the ministry intervening only in cases involving cartels.
The government is also considering measures to further reduce ferry fares, which for some routes are disproportionately high, particularly burdening low-income families.
The new ceiling restrictions apply to fares for passengers, cars, small commercial vehicles and trucks.
For ferries under 10 years of age, economy class tickets cost 28.42 euros plus 70.09 euros for car. The fare for travel by high speed ferry comes to 47.37 euros.
