Yacht rental period and Price Calculation Rental, usually is calculated on a weekly basis. Seven days- so a week- generally is accepted as the minimum charter period. Reservations are calculated from Saturday to Saturday as 7 days. The weekly price of the yacht is divided into seven in order to determine the daily price, and if the yacht should be rented for more than 7 days, then rental period is calculated by multiplying with number of days. For some yachts, rental can also be made for less than 7 days and at low season periods a yacht can also be rented only for a few days. The charter period begins at noon of the first day and ends at noon of the last day. High season rates are valid for the most popular charter periods is July/ August. Middle term is valid for June and September. Low season rates are valid for the months May and October.
40% of the total rental fee is paid as deposit on the date of signing the contract by bank transfer or credit card. After payment, you will receive a confirmation of your reservation. The remaining balance should be paid together with APA fees during check- in on the yacht.
What is Apa- How it is calculated
Pre-preparation advance (APA FEE) is made during payment of the rent. Generally it is calculated as 25% of the rental fee, however, in some ultra-luxury yachts this fee can also be 30%. Fees for food, beverage, and harbor fees (for non-contractual harbors) are to be given to the captain of the yacht before starting the tour. This payment was designed to meet the costs of food and other costs. APA are payments made on your behalf by the captain. All invoices and cash payments must be completed by the gests before starting the tour. The captain will issue a list of costs and payments for you and if less spending was made than the APA amount, the remaining amount will be returned to you. If spending should exceed the APA amount, you will have to complete the exceeding amount.
Tour Routes and Harbors Tour routes and harbors generally are selected by our guests from previously determined routes and if possible the customers can inform our agency about harbors and bays he wants to visit in order to make a change in the route and this change will be stated in the tour contract. If upon request of the customer, the tour should end at a harbor other than the final harbor stated in the contract, the guests will also bear the costs which will occur during the travel of the yacht to the contractual harbor.
