Schedules and prices are the catalysts of every buying decision. So get informed of your available choices and organize your trip at your convenience.
Are ferry routes available from Patras to Corfu?
Yes, there are available ferry routes from Patras to Corfu, but you cannot book these routes online. These routes are operated only by local carriers that do not release their schedules via online booking platforms.
If you wish to book a crossing with them, you must book directly at the port. Ticket booths are located at the ports of Patras and Corfu. You can find schedules, prices and contact details (telephone numbers and addresses) online.
For this, please use the search engine of your convenience by typing the keyword “local ferries” and the destination and arrival ports between which you wish to travel (e.g., “local ferries Patras Corfu”). Remember, these routes are not online bookable. They are displayed online only for planning purposes.
In high season crossings take place daily on approx. a half-hour basis. Nonetheless, remember that these routes are popular and crowded in summer. So, be prepared for a possible queue!
Finally, be aware that some common carriers which can be booked online and operate the Italy Greece Italy routes, when coming from and/ or arriving in Italy do stop-overs in Corfu and Igoumenitsa (or Kefalonia and Zakynthos). But because their ships carry the Italian flag, it is impossible to book or embark/ disembark on an intermediate route. Therefore, these common carriers operate only on international routes.
Exist any ferry routes which you cannot book with isferry?
The booking system of isferry displays route results for all its cooperating carriers in real-time. Nevertheless, some local carriers do not offer their services online and, thus, can not be booked online and in advance via any available online booking platform.
For example, such routes operated by local carriers are Patras Corfu, Kefalonia Lefkada, Costa Spetses.

How much does a ticket cost?
isferry is a booking and comparison aggregator; therefore, we never set prices. Instead, all prices displayed through the booking system are set by our partners (travel agencies, carriers).
Prices are displayed when using the booking system and remain the same throughout the booking process, which means that the price you see from the very first beginning is the same as the one you pay at the end. This way, it is always easy and accessible for you to compare prices.
The final ticket cost depends on the chosen partner (travel agency, carrier), vessel, route, total number of passengers and accommodation and is inclusive of:
- Ferry ticket cost (value of ferry operator’s tickets)
- VAT and taxes (government taxes, port taxes)
- Fuel surcharges (if applicable)
- Booking fees of the travel agency
- Transaction fees for standard credit cards (Visa, MasterCard)
For more specific information on prices, please read the booking terms. It is necessary to read and accept the booking terms of the travel agency responsible for your tickets and the carrier to proceed with your payment.
