Booking conditions

To book your charter you need to pay a 50% prepayment deposit. Once the deposit is paid the booking is confirmed and not before. The rest 50% must be paid at least 30 days before departure. If these terms are not met, the company reserves the right to cancel the booking and keep the advance as the cancellation fee.

Ways to pay for your trip

In the case of cancellation:

  • up to 3 months before departure:  full refund minus 75€ per yacht for procedural costs
  • up to 30 days before departure:  the 50% advance deposit is considered a cancellation fee.
  • less than 30 days before departure:  no refund.

Prices are subject to change at any time without warning.
Trips programs/routes can change according to the actual weather and or the moods of the guests. In a rare case, your Skipper may decide to change the plan, making sure everyone is safe and comfortable. Your Skipper wants and will do everything for you to have a good time. However he is not on vacation, he is working for up to 8 hours a day, and he expects you to respect both him and his property, the yacht, as they have to work again the next morning. You should listen to what he knows as for example a beach on paper may look fantastic,  but in full season be too crowded to enjoy it.
charterAyacht reserves the right to decide when the weather is too bad or too extreme to make the trip or any other very serious reason for canceling. Especially in last minute bookings, you may be asked to pay the full amount agreed if you decide not to take the trip for your own reasons. charterAyacht also reserves the right to decide if any of the paid amounts will be returned in case last minute cancellation.
Greek Tax laws are subject to change anytime, so VAT(now 24%) may change without notice. In this case, the customer will have to pay the difference.

Transportation from the airport or your hotel is easy to arrange. Please contact us for details and prices, if you have problems with your hotel reception or the prices seem too extreme.


You will have to pay PayPal fees onboard usually about 5%. The same applies to any other credit card payment system we may use. To avoid any misunderstanding, we will show you the PayPal transaction and its fees and you will pay them with your balance.

Bareboat charters Conditions for booking.

In order to book a bareboat charter, you need to have at least two qualified persons who know how to control a sailing yacht and have a license to prove it.

You also have to leave a security deposit (cash or Credit card pre-approve) before getting your boat. The amount is different for each vessel. Usually is the same as the insurance waiver for the boat policy.

Before leaving port, you have to sign a standard charter agreement contract with us where all these details are explained. Port authorities may also ask you to check your passport and sailing license.
