See the main reasons to book your summer vacation now!
You can find the accommodation you want
Whether you are traveling as a couple, as a family with children or with friends, you always want a specific type of room. There are islands like Donoussa or Koufonissia, which have very few places for tourists to stay in, but great demand. If, for example, you are looking for a room that accepts pets or with a view and easy access to the sea, you will have a hard time finding it in the summer. The typical scenario is that we all start looking for a room just a few days before we sail off to the island. Most of the times, we end up having to sacrifice the quality of accommodation or the number of days we get to stay. There’s nothing available around weekends, sea views are expensive, and you sometimes end up staying in two or three different places. You are more likely to find exactly what you are looking for if you start your research before summer comes. In addition, you will take advantage of the offers and you may get better prices on accommodation.

Better work planning
If you are a freelancer, you can have a plan for the near future. You schedule your appointments and deadlines on time, while at the same time you let all your clients know about the days you will be out of office. If you are an employee, you get to choose the slot you want early on and avoid any unpleasant surprises. In other words, if there is an increased demand for leaves between July 15 - August 15, with your timely planning you will have exactly the dates you want, without any fuss from your co-workers.
You travel by boat comfortably
It is true that ferry services increase during the summer season. But if you travel by car or if you go to Crete, Chios, Limnos or some other distant destination, you will need to book a cabin. Many times, these facilities are not available anymore in August and you have to change the whole plan to find an itinerary you can follow. To get exactly what you want, without missing out, make your reservation as early as you can. At Let’s Ferry you will find itineraries and information for all destinations.

Rent a car the smart way
If you decide to leave the car at home this year and rent one as soon as you arrive at your destination, timely planning is in your favor. One of the benefits is that the earlier you book, the better price you will get. As the summer season approaches, the demand and therefore the prices go uphill. Also, many destinations, such as Paxi, do not have many rental cars and motorbikes available. At Let’s Ferry you can find great car rental deals from AVIS.

Easy breezy island hopping
If you dream of visiting more than one island each summer, early booking will bring you one step closer to your best strategy possible. Paros-Naxos-Ios, Syros-Tinos-Mykonos, Rhodes-Symi-Chalki, Zakynthos-Kefalonia-Ithaki, are some of the most famous destinations for island hopping. If you have tried to organize everything starting the end of July, or, worse case scenario in August, you will have real difficulties. Itineraries, accommodation, car transportation, everything will be tougher to master. But timely planning will allow you to best organize your vacation, down to the last detail.

Be in your best mood
Every rainy day, every problem at work, all the overtime you clock in the office, becomes a little easier when you have already arranged your summer vacation. Even if your trip is 4-5 months away, when you see the days circled in your calendar, time passes more easily and, most importantly, more pleasantly.
