If this is not the case, it is important that you inform us within 24 hours of it being sent to you. Failure to do so may result in service charges being applied for booking amendments.

Once we have received your completed booking form and we are satisfied with the information you have supplied together with your cleared payment due we will proceed to confirm the booking with the principal(s) or supplier(s) and will send your charter booking confirmation.

The booking information that you provide to us will be passed on only to the relevant suppliers of your yacht charter arrangements or other persons necessary for the provision of your yacht charter arrangements. The information may therefore be provided to public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. 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. In making this booking, you consent to this information being passed on to the relevant persons. Full details of our data protection policy are available on our website.

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.

SECURITY DEPOSITS

By completing the booking form you confirm you will provide the relevant security deposit to the principal(s) or other supplier(s). The amount of the security deposit is shown separately on your charter booking confirmation statement and must be made by credit card (VISA or Mastercard) debit cards are not accepted before your charter can commence.

The cancellation of your yacht charter may not take effect until we have received your written instruction and any monies due as a result of your intended cancellation.

This will be charged in addition to any changes in charter price, costs or fees applicable that are applied by the principal(s) or supplier(s).

It is not possible to refund individuals within your party or where the amendment or cancellation is because the number of persons within their party is less than that required for the charter booking. If you wish to make an amendment to the number of people within your party after the initial booking, so long as the total party remains within the per person minimum/maximum requirement for the yacht chartered we can make such requests to the principal(s) or other supplier(s).

The Client complain shall be accepted only in written form signed by Client personally and by a representative of Charter Company on the day of the beginning of the reserved service. The Client is obligated to cooperate with the Charter Company representative in a well- intentioned manner so that the cause of the complaint can be resolved. If upon arrival the Client is not satisfied with the state of vessel and decides to leave on his own initiative and finds different accommodation or vessel without giving the Charter Company a chance to resolve the issue, correct the cause of the discontent, or find another vessel, the Client does not have a right to request a refund or make a claim for compensation, regardless of the fact that his/her reasons were justified or not. Should the Client accept the proposed solution which corresponds with the service rendered on the spot, the Charter Company will not take additional complaints into consideration or respond to them.

The Client may claim compensation at the time of check-out only with a complaint in writing and appertaining documentation signed both by the Client and a representative of Charter Company. If requests of the Client cannot be solved at the time of check-out, they are to be submitted in writing within the period of 14 days. Otherwise, the complaint shall not be taken into consideration.

The Charter Company is obligated to take into consideration only those claims whose cause could not be resolved on the spot. During the process of handling the complain, and maximum 14 days after the complaint has been filed, the Client relinquishes the right to involve a third party, publicly disclosing information as well as filing suit.

The highest amount of compensation per complaint can amount to the complaint portion of the service and cannot encompass the used portion of the service or the total amount of the service.

9. PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURITY

The Charter Company is under the obligation that the personal information of the Client will not be taken out of the country or given to a third party except for the purpose of carrying out requested services. The personal information will be kept in a database in accordance with the Managements decision on the method of collecting, processing and securing personal information.
