isferry.com is family owned since 1979! Our entrepreneurial story spans three generations sharing the same goal: excellence followed by dignity!
Professional and private life have always been closely linked in our family. Being a three-generation family business comes with a history of sacrifice and reconciliation that we don't want to get too indulged in and romantic about - at least for this narrative. So that's our long story short.
Originating from a German-Greek summer romance in the Greek capital Athens, our company has been offering its services to thousands of travel enthusiasts since 1979 as a Traditional Travel Agency in Greece and since 1988 as a General Sales Agent for major carriers in Germany (SeeFA Reisen - See & Flug Agentur Stuttgart). In 2009 our online booking platform got introduced to the global market!
Marianne Dahm and Dimitrios Kallinikos, his brother Ioannis Kallinikos, cousins Nico, George and Nikolaos, and granddaughter Marianna, together we value simple things such as honesty and hard work. These principles have been luckily passed from one generation to another and carried out to this very day. The result is a naturally evolving, multicultural, modern business environment with strong human relationships driven by quality rather than quantity.
When done right, we are convinced that services and products offered on the internet achieve at least the same level of worthiness, transparency and interpersonality as local store presence. Therefore, we commit to comprehensive customer support services and secure online booking technologies. Furthermore, as ferry travel enthusiasts, we encourage individual travel experiences that let us freely witness the natural beauty of places!

Advanced booking engine
After many years of expertise in online ferry bookings, we learned for good to readjust booking procedures and techniques. You can book all available accommodations, passenger vehicles, trailers, caravans, campers etc., in a few simple booking steps.
In case you cancel your reservation 4 to 6 weeks before the departure, we will refund the total paid amount of less than 40.00 Euro for international routes and less than 25.00 Euro for Greek domestic routes as cancellation fees.
Our online booking engine lets you compare and book fares of different carriers in real-time.
You can combine different carriers and routes in one booking (e.g. Ancona to Patras with Minoan Lines and return Igoumenitsa to Venice with Anek Superfast Ferries).
