Birmingham flight TOM7534 ferry from Skiathos to Skopelos

Hi

Has anyone been on this flight leaving Birmingham on a Friday at 7.10 a.m arriving at 12.40 p.m. our time and had a transfer ferry to Skopelos (with Thomas Cook package).

I just wondered whether we will be in Skiathos Town for a while before the ferry over to Skopelos.

Also we are actually doing a two centre holiday and spending the next week in Skiathos so another question is, if anyone knows, what time will be leaving Skoppelos to transfer to the next accommodation, or will we have to wait for the other people that are returning home to go on the ferry with them. We have asked Thomas Cook and they couldn't give us any idea and informed us the reps will let us know when we get there. If we are waiting we will then look at the ferry times and make our own way, just to get the holiday into gear!!

I will also be asking this on the Skopelos forum.

Thanks in advance

We have a similar question as well.

We fly from Stansted with Thomas Cook Airlines next June and arrive on Skiathos at around 12.30pm.

This flight we have arranged ourselves.

It would be nice to have a couple of hours or so on Skiathos before we catch the ferry over to Skopelos, so that we can have a bite to eat on the waterfront.

We are staying in a Villa a few miles from Skopelos Town and the ferry transfer is part of the package of our villa, so not sure how they issue the ferry tickets for a specific time or are they open ended?

Looking at the ferry times for this year, as next years times are not available, there is one at approx 13.05 and another at 18.15 with Hellenic Seaways, so the 18.15 would be the one for us.

But next years times may be different.

Ferry tickets are for the specified journey only. They are not transferable between companies you have to buy another ticket if it's another company.

If it's the same ferry company you will have to ask to change the ticket to another time/ferry assuming there is space on another ferry of course.

You buy tickets at the agency by the port.

If the ferry transfer is part of the package then presume there would be a rep from the Villa company at the Skiathos port to hand over tickets and details of transfer once on Skopelos - ? A lot can change between now and June including flight times .
