This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary and religious requirements. If you charter outside the European Economic Area, controls on data protection may not be as strong as the legal requirements in this country. If we cannot pass this information to the relevant suppliers, whether in the EEA or not, we will be unable to provide your booking.

PAYMENT AND PRICE

When booking you will be required to pay a deposit or make full payment for your charter and our Consulting / Booking Administration Fee will become due. Payments must be made by bank transfer. We reserve the right to change the required method of payment at our discretion, irrespective of how any deposit or prior payment was made.

We may ask for a lower-than-normal deposit. Where this is the case, you will be notified at the time of booking of when the remainder of the deposit payment is due. You must pay the full balance by the balance due date notified to you (which is never less than 12 weeks before travel). Please check the dates your payments are due on your charter booking confirmation/ statement. If payments are not received on time (whether formally requested or not), we will notify the principal(s) or supplier(s) who may cancel your booking and charge the cancellation fees set out in their Terms and Conditions and any payments made including your deposit may be retained by them. We will also apply our service fee for cancellation. Please note that these charges may be greater than the sums collected (particularly when a lower-than-normal deposit is charged) in which case we will seek to recover from you any monies due.

Once you receive your charter booking confirmation the price of your charter will not be increased unless that there is a requirement by law to charge a Government tax or levy introduced or changed after your booking is made. This does not apply to errors or omissions. However, we reserve the right to amend prices at any time prior to booking.

Whilst we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of the pricing information provided, regrettably errors may occasionally occur. When we become aware of any such error, we will endeavour to notify you at the time of booking (if we are then aware of the mistake) or as soon as reasonably possible. If a booking is already in place, you will have the choice to continue with the chosen charter at the corrected price or amend to a different charter, subject to availability. We reserve the right to cancel the booking with the principal(s) or supplier(s) if you do not wish to accept the price that applies to your charter or any quoted alternatives.

TOURIST TAX

Some destinations charge a tourist tax which applies to all tourists and we will try to inform you of this wherever possible and to the best of our knowledge. However, these charges depend entirely on the local authorities in that country and therefore may be introduced without our prior knowledge and are subject to changes beyond our control. The tourist tax will be in addition to the charter price.

Full insurance does not cover willful misuse, gross negligence or cost of repair of clogged toilette.

Unless Full cover insurance is applied, the Charterer lays under commitment to providing a security deposit at the time of embarkation on the Vessel by pre-authorization of the credit card. The deposit shall be terminated in its entirety upon the return of the vessel, unless an existence of a damage or a defect on the vessel or the equipment is found during the handover of the vessel, and unless there are no claims by UTH, filed or announced claims by the third persons, that are connected to the usage of the vessel.
