Though it may seem daunting at first, it’s not difficult to plan and book your trip to Santorini without using a travel agent. The internet makes it really easy to find flights (Kayak.com) and hotels (Booking.com), book ferry tickets (Ferryhopper.com), reserve a rental car (RentalCars.com, and discover great tours (GetYourGuide.com).
All of the above sites are reputable and will save you money that you can use later to enjoy the island. We’ve also got loads of great guides to get you started:

Recommended Greece Travel Agents

Help…totally overwhelmed! Our 19 year old daughter has chosen Greece as her “once in a lifetime with just Mom and Dad” trip. We need to travel in May or June (short notice) and will have up to 10 days. Figured a couple of days in Athens and then she wants a water/beach/scenery type of vacation. Leaning towards focusing on Athens and Santorini unless you feel doing another island (Mykonos, Crete) is a must. Do I try to book everything myself, use a USA travel agent, a Greece travel agent? Normally I would research and book everything but this trip is throwing me for a loop. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for all you do on your website.
It’s easy to plan and book yourself and that’s what I recommend. I’d do an Athens-Mykonos-Santorini-Athens loop. Book ferry tickets for Athens to Mykonos and Mykonos to Santorini on FerryHopper.com. Fly from Santorini back to Athens. Then book hotels in Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini on Booking.com. Easy.
We are in Santorini and want to buy ferry tickets to Mykonos. And then Mykonos to Athens. I see many different places to buy tickets. Is any one cheaper than the other? Can we buy the Mykonos to Athens ferry tickets in Santorini?
All the travel agents sell ferry tickets at the same price (they’re regulated by the government), so go to the most convenient one. Yes, you can buy Mykonos to Athens tickets in Santorini (and at the same price as buying in Mykonos).
I’ve booked a hotel in Oia that said it had a pool but I found out they don’t! Do you know of any luxury hotels with pools that might allow me to purchase an access pass, book a spa treatment or even that would allow us to use their pool if we buy lunch? I was really looking forward to swimming in an infinity pool overlooking the caldera!
Sorry, there are no hotels that allow non-guests to use their pool (even if you pay or buy lunch). The best option is Lioyerma pool bar which offers free use of their very nice pool for buying drinks or food.
Great website…we are traveling in July to Greece. We arrive early evening and stay in centre city Athens. We plan to leave early the next morning and take a ferry from Piraeus to Mykonos. I was thinking to book ferry tickets online a couple of days before arrival to Athens. Once I purchase the ferry tickets, is there an option to print tickets at home? Or do I have to pick up tickets at the port? I also read there is a travel agency at the airport in arrivals, so could I pick up tickets there as well?
You can print them but if they don’t have a bar code they’re not good for boarding the ferry. In which case you pick them up from the kiosk at the Piraeus ferry port. It’s easy and efficient, just be at the port 45 minutes before departure and you’ll be fine. (You can book at the airport but not pickup tickets that you booked online.)
