Additional information on ferries to and from Saranda (from Corfu) (

Is there a visa fee for entering into Sarada, Albania?

No. There used to be a number of years ago but there isn’t any more. Neither is there a ‘white card’ which you should keep with you until you leave. This system was abandoned many years ago.

Tour companies will still try and charge you this even though it doesn’t exist.

How often do ferries run?

Ferries from Corfu to Saranda and vise-versa operate all year round with additional times added during peak seasons.

During peak season, Ionian Cruises ferries operate from 09:00 13:00 & 18:30 travelling from Corfu to Saranda, with the express ferry being the earliest one.

Peak season lines from Sarande to Corfu via Ionian Cruises:

09:00, 10:30 and 16:00. Earliest departure is the high speed hydrofoil (aka, the Flying Dolphin) with the later departures being the standard and slower ferry boat (ship name: Kaliopi).

How many ferry companies/lines are there?

Two. Finikas lines and Ionian Cruises.

How long does it take to travel from Corfu to Saranda?

On the fast hydrofoil, it takes about 30 minutes. The slower ferry takes almost 1.5 hours.

Where can I purchase tickets from in Saranda to go to Corfu via ferry?

There are two shops/offices where you can purchase tickets, one either side of the port entrance.

Do you get a stamp in your visa when entering into Saranda via Corfu?

Rarely. But sometimes. If you’re and EU citizen then likely not. Other countries you might.

Can you take a car onto the ferry?

Yes but only the slower one and sometimes only on specific routes (but normally on all days Monday – Sunday), normally car opereated ferries leave morning (around 10:30am) and late afternoon (around 4pm) from both Saranda and Corfu ports, normally two a day. The faster hydrofoil ship leaves in the morning 9am and can’t take cars.

How many cars can fit onto the ferry leaving Corfu/Saranda?

Around 4-5 cars will fit so if you’re looking to travel with your car across to Greece or Albania it’s best to reserve a car slot at least a week in advance or as early as possible, especially in peak season.

How much does it cost to travel with a car via ferry to Corfu or Saranda?

Around EUR120 but could be a little more depending on the size of car and passengers (between EUR140-EUR200 for a small family and car.)

Do you have to reserve a ticket/buy a ticket in advance to travel on the ferry to Corfu?

I’ve done the crossing many times and have always purchased my ticket on the day or a day in advance. Never has the ferry been anywhere close to full capacity so I dont’ think you’ll need to reserve a seat in advance.

Are there any cash machines (ATM’s) near the ports of Saranda and Cofu?

Yes. Many. Right near the port entrance on both sides.

What is the time difference between Corfu and Saranda?

There is a one hour time difference (Corfu is one hour ahead of Albania/Sarande).
