BOOKING AND CANCELLATION POLICY
In order to reserve a boat, the client must proceed with the payment of a 50% deposit of the full amount. This ensures the requested date and boat and allows us as a company to cover several expenses prior to the departure as are the crew and fuel. In order to proceed with departure, the client must proceed with the payment of the remaining balance of 50% with a minimum of 24 hours prior to the date.
It is important that before you book a boat, you as a client take into consideration that as soon as you book with us we immediately begin to prepare your charter. Therefore, we incur several expenses, consequently we a have a charges policy on the deposit in case an unjustified cancellation from the customer occurs:
In case natural causes beyond our control (bad weather, etc.) are the cause of the postponement or cancellation of the Charter, we ensure a 100% return of the deposit (subject to the decision on cancellation ONLY from the captain of the boat). If the boat is delayed more than one (1) hour to reach the place of departure, the client is entitled to claim a refund for 100% of the deposit.
To reschedule your charter, you must notify one (1) week before your reserved date to avoid modification charges. If the date change is requested 72 hours before the charter date, a penalty of 60% of the deposit will be applied.
