Payment Policy

Payment terms are as follows:

  • 50% of the total charter fee due and payable upon reservation to confirm booking.

  • 50% balance payment due 30-35 days prior to embarkation.

For bookings more than 8 months in advance, you may request an alternative plan, e.g.

  • 30% upon reservation

  • 40% 1 month prior to charter

Extras are payable to independent providers prior to embarkation AT BASE directly by Charterer in cash (i.e. standard charter pack, crew arrangements, optional equipment & charter pack & services).

Booking is not confirmed until 1st payment is cleared to our bank account stated on booking form.
Charter will take place only if all payments are confirmed in cleared funds in due time.
All payments in Euro. All amounts must be received in full, in cleared funds net of payment / credit card / banking commissions and expenses.

Requesting an option

When you are ready to confirm your booking, let us know your choice and we will put an option on the boat, cabin or cruise in question, which is usually held for between 3 – 5 days. We will then send you a booking form / contract with the details of the charter and payment details. You will need to pay the deposit before the option expires and send us proof of payment (if paying by bank transfer) or your credit card authorisation in order to confirm the booking. Failure to pay the deposit before the option expires means that you the boat may then move to the next person waiting in line.

COVID-19 (or other unforseeable events…)

In the event where there is a travel ban or border restrictions, when there is an official notice-advisory not to travel to the area of the booked charter, or the border is closed to the country of origin of the customer at the time of your charter:

  • it`s possible to reschedule your charter to the same base / yacht, subject to availability, to another period or defer the charter to within 18 months. (If you change the booking with a bigger or smaller yacht, or reschedule to a higher / lower season period, the price-list difference will be added/deducted.

Please note that for all bookings we strongly recommend you take out a fully comprehensive travel insurance to protect you against cancellations and other unforeseeable events.
