Transport Discounts Now Applicable on All Greek Islands

All Greek island residents can – starting this year – claim transportation discounts as part of the government’s “transport equivalent” measure, the shipping ministry announced.

Initially applicable to 49 Greek islands within a pilot scheme launched last summer, the measure now foresees discounts for the transportation of goods and people to and from all Greek island territories.

The shipping ministry said it was using the experience gained through the pilot program to now extend the scheme to all island communities in Greece, inviting residents, positioned medical staff, and stationed teachers to register online at in order to be assigned a special islander code which they will present to ferry agencies when purchasing their tickets and will at the end of each month receive in their bank account the amount of the tax-deductible discount.

Applicants need only to register once and should submit TAXIS codes, personal data and IBAN number in order for the discounts to be deposited.
