Pre-charter Information & FAQ's Lefkas


Please complete the crew list as soon as possible as this will avoid delays in processing your yacht papers. If you have booked a skipper please ignore the skipper sections of the form. We hope you have a wonderful time exploring the Ionian Islands - Happy Sailing!  



If you need any help or information when arranging your travel to Lefkas we will be glad to help.

Please check all current proceedures and official advice for travel before your charter including Government travel advice, airport and border proceedures for all of the countries you plan to travel through. Your specific passport and visa requirements and other immigration and travel requirements are your responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant Government departments, Embassies and/or Consulates. Please acquaint yourself with the current official travel advice provided by the relevant government bodies as well as relevant airlines or other transport providers.

Request a transfer from Preveza airport by completing your flight information on the crew list form

When you depart the airport terminal there will be a driver waiting holding a card bearing your name who will drive you directly to the marina. Please pay the driver directly in euros (€35 per car or €60 for 2 cars). Cars take up to 4 people and we will advise of prices for larger groups over 8 people requiring a mini coach. The transfer takes around 20 minutes.

Your transfers will automatically be arranged if you have correctly completed your flight information on the Transfer form but if you want to drop us an email with them as well please do so. Please advise us of any changes to your travel plans as soon as you become aware of them.


  • For bareboat charters, upon arrival just the Skipper and First Mate should make their way to the Office (details below). Its a good idea for other crew members to sit and enjoy a cool drink or bite to eat at one of the marina cafes.
  • For skippered charters your skipper will meet you at base offices, or, for late arrivals on your yacht.

If you will be arriving at the marina after 20.00 please inform us in advance so we can let you know the details for boarding your yacht.

If we are not arranging transfers for you please let us know the approximate time of your arrival to the marina. If you are going to be significantly earlier or later than expected please call Island Sailing (see contact information below).

If you require ongoing transfers after your charter please let the base office know when you arrive for your charter and they will organise this for you.

Unless you have booked a skipper you must bring the original copy(s) of your sailing qualifications/skipper's licence.

A VISA or MASTERCARD Credit Card for your yacht security deposit (Debit Cards and American Express are NOT accepted). Please make sure you have a large enough limit to cover the deposit for the yacht you have booked. If you do not possess a VISA or MASTERCARD credit card you must inform us BEFORE you travel to Greece as your charter can't commence without the completed credit card security deposit.

At least one mobile phone set up for roaming in Greece and charger – it is very important that you can keep in contact.


Travel light is our advice. Don’t forget your passport(s) / ID.

Please bring your luggage in a soft bag that will fold down without wheels or hard edges. Space on a yacht is limited and cases with hard edges and wheels will often damage the woodwork on the boat. There is a limited amount of space available for luggage storage on the check-in and check-out day only.

Bedding and yacht towels are provided on your yacht. If you have a late flight home we recommend bringing another towel if you wish as yacht towels cannot be kept after you disembark on the last day.

All yachts are equipped with sufficient numbers of life jackets, usually of a standard size. If you are not a standard size, or especially for small children it is wise to bring your own life jackets . If you would like to check about this before you come to Greece please get in touch.
