PAYMENT & CANCELLATION
Payment for confirmed yachts should be made by wire transfer over two payments.
Once the initial reservation is submitted on the The Yacht Break website, you will have 24 hours to pay the first installment of the total yacht cost. Once this has been paid, your option will turn into a confirmed booking where terms and conditions apply. Thus, the first installment acts as a deposit, which is non-refundable if the booking is subsequently canceled. If payment is not made within 24 hours, the option will automatically expire.
Please ensure you check your spam filter if you do not receive a confirmation email as it may have ended up there.
All bookings will be paid in 2 installments:
a. first payment: 50% of the total charter price no later than 24 hours after making the reservation (an option is created)
b. second payment: 50% of the total charter price no later than 40 days before the charter departure date
If preferred, you may settle the total in one payment.
PROBLEMS WITH PAYMENTS?
Paying via wire transfer
Currently, we only support wire transfer payments. For the wire transfer to process correctly you need to use the company as well as bank details
What is the Deposit?
The deposit is a kind of insurance that is paid directly to the yachting company at check-in on site. It is a security deposit against damages caused to the yacht during the week. If you do not have any damage at check-out then the entire deposit is returned. Deposits can be paid either by card or in cash.
CAN WE BOOK FLIGHTS THROUGH THE YACHT BREAK?
The Yacht Break does not arrange flights. To get your flight at a reasonable price we recommend booking your flight as early as possible. We recommend you book a flight that lands before 3 pm local time to get to the marina in time and leave on the same day.
Depending on your destination and when your flight arrival we will provide you with details on how to reach the marina so adequate time is considering for transfers.
We recommend that you and all members of your yacht charter party have comprehensive travel insurance prior to departure. Please make sure you don’t travel without adequate insurance!
