Greece is opening for tourism!
Non-essential travel within the EU / Schengen zone has been extended until 15 June. We are happy to say that from June 15th Greece will welcome visitors from twenty countries into Athens airport and via neighbouring land borders. From July 1st borders will be open to all countries and to all Greek airports.
There will be no quarantine on arrival, no mandatory testing (only sample testing) but sensible precautions will apply. Fortunately, Greece has had relatively few cases of coronavirus and we all hope it stays that way!
There is no safer holiday than the social isolation offered on a sailing yacht with your own family or friends. You can choose where to go and avoid crowded areas, dropping anchors in isolated bays overnight if you prefer.
We have taken all necessary measures in order to welcome our guests on board with safety.
All yachts will be cleaned and sterilised throughout before every charter. We can also provide you with face masks and antiseptics.
We can arrange your transfer upon your arrival to Greece so you will avoid being among others.
Our staff will keep all safety measures including wearing masks and gloves and keeping necessary distances.
You can pre-order your provisions and we can bring them to your yacht without having to go to the super market your self.
Linen will be provided packaged, directly from the dry cleaner.
Current & future bookings
In the case that a charter customer is unable to get to the base due to travel restrictions, when there is an official notice-advisory not to travel to the area of the booked charter, or the boarder is closed to the country of origin of the customer, the following will apply:
For already booked charters it is possible to change your dates to within 18 months of the original charter date, and the charter area and the charter yacht should remain the same. If the rescheduled booking is more expensive, the price difference will be charged.
For future bookings in 2020, made from today and until 15 June, the required deposit will be 20% and the remaining 30% of the advance payment of the booking can be paid up to 15/06/2020. The final payment for future bookings can be paid latest 20 days before the charter departure.
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.
