ii. The search tool
Use the search tool to find direct port connections. Use the dropdown to filter results.
Click the icon on the right to toggle the App's splash screen and sharing possibilities.
How the search tool works:
Use any of the fields to start your search: Either as a departure (Leaving from) or as a destination (Going to) point.
Start typing and you'll imediately get suggestions to select from (aided search).
Select a suggested location to see all direct port connections.
Case-sensitive? No. You may type in Caps or small letters. We won't mind.
Aided search starts to function after you have input the 3rd letter in your word. e.g. typing Pir will bring a list of suggestions relevant to your search. Suggestions consist of two parts: A primary location name which in the best cases is the actual port name, followed by a Greater area name in parenthessis which in most cases is the municipal authority name of the port. e.g. Piraeus (Piraeus), meaning: Piraeus port in Piraeus municipality.
Multi-port locations. Some islands or mainland areas in Greece are serviced by more than one ports. e.g. Samos island has 3 ports: Vathy, Pythagorio and Karlovassi. FerryConnections™ is featuring smart location search, meaning you don't need to know the actual name of the port itself. Just fill in the location (e.g. Samos) and we will do the rest for you.
