Booking terms 2021
In order to help you plan your holidays in these uncertain times, we are offering the following flexible booking policy for 2021 season:
For any booking confirmed by 31 January 2021:
- 30% of the total charter fee due and payable upon reservation to confirm booking.
- 20% of the total charter fee due and payable 91 days prior to embarkation.
- 50% balance payment due 35 days prior to embarkation.
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.
For our IONIAN, DODECANESE & CORINTH FLOTILLAS, and some CABIN CRUISES, prices are offered also in GBP sterling and can be paid directly to our UK bank account. We are also offering a £200 minimum booking deposit for these.
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 due to COVID-19 at the time of your charter:
- it`s possible to reschedule your charter to the same base / yacht, subject to availability, to another period. (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.
*In the event that the same boat can be rechartered for the same period, cancellation fees will be refunded less administrative costs, commissions or extra discounts (to equal value for the charter).
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.

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.
According to the terms of the charter contract:
"In the event of cancellation by the Charterer, for any reason, after signing this Agreement, all advance payments made up to the date of cancellation will be retained by the Owner, and the Owner reserves the right to refund the said deposits, less any expenses, commissions or administrative costs already incurred, only if he succeeds in letting the Yacht to another Charterer for the same period and under the same conditions."
For that reason, we strongly advise taking out a comprehensive travel insurance that will cover you for cancellations and other unforeseeable events, which may occur before and during your trip. It can also cover you for accidents or losses that may occur while you are travelling. Insurance can be obtained via EIS before the charter start date.
