If you are staying in a hotel, pension, house or rooms in Hydra Town that does not have street steps to negotiate, then the quickest and cheapest method of getting your luggage from the port to your accommodaiton is to use the services of one of the men who operate hand carts.
All hand carts are a fixed size and can take much bigger loads than horses or mules.
A hand cart luggage transfer will cost €10, regardless of the number of bags in the cart.
Generally a hand cart can take up to 4 suitcases and 4 pieces of handluggage.
Most hand cart men will take your bags along the streets to the start of any steps to your accmmodation. SOME however are extra helpful and will carry your bags up short flights of steps and into the accommodation entrance courtyard. It is of course at your discretion as to whether you tip above the €10 fee if someone goes that extra step for you!
