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 which could in turn delay you setting sail. The completed crew list will also allow us to organise your transfers from/to Preveza airport if required. 

If you have booked a skipper please ignore the skipper sections of the form but allocate one of your party who is over 18 as ‘First Mate’.

We hope you have a wonderful time exploring the Ionian Islands - Happy Sailing! 

 

TRANSFERS  TO LEFKAS

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.

Request a transfer from/to Preveza airport by checking the box on the Crew List/Transfer Form & completing your flight information

When you depart the airport terminal there will be a driver waiting holding a card bearing your name who will drive you directly to Lefkas. 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 Crew List/Transfer form so there is no need to re-check or re-send flight information to us.

ARRIVALS

  • For bareboat charters upon arrival at the GR Sailing office we recommend all crew except skipper/party leader to enjoy a drink whilst they wait in one of the cafe bars closeby. Margarita's taverrna right opposite the town quay is a great place for lunch or an evening meal.

If you will be arriving to Lefkas 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 Lefkas. If you are going to be significantly earlier or later than expected please call Island Sailing (see contact information below).

If you have booked transfers through us we will let you know the time of your transfer back to the airport when you arrive back at Lefkas at the end of your charter.

MANDATORY THINGS TO BRING

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.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Travel light is our advice. Dress is casual around the Ionian Islands. Don’t forget your passport(s).

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.
