Can unaccompanied children travel with ANEK?

Our Company does not accept bookings for children younger than 15 years old if not accompanied by an adult. All underage passengers over the age of 15 may travel unaccompanied provided that they submit to the company a declaration signed by both their parents or their guardians stating that the parents/guardians assume full responsibility for anything that may happen to the children during the voyage or for any damage inflicted by him/her to third parties. The aforementioned declaration should be accompanied by a validation of the parents/guardians’ signature.

The original declaration is issued in 2 copies per route -the first will be presented to the issuing central agency and the second will be kept by the underage passenger throughout the journey.
