All your questions
Does my charter need to be a week long?
No. Many operators will ask you to charter for a week, usually Saturday to Saturday, but this is most rigid during high season in the Mediterranean for "sleep aboard" charters.
When will I be charged?
You will only be charged after your booking request has been accepted by the owner of the boat. If they reject your request, your card will not be charged. Once the booking has been confirmed and paid, you will receive an email confirming your booking.
How can I pay for a booking?
If you have picked one of the available boats, all you have to do is to indicate your preferred rental dates and then click "Book" on the listing. You will be asked to provide your bank details and to indicate whether you wish to have insurance coverage and insurance for assistance, repatriation and cancellation. You will not be charged until the owner has accepted your booking request. If they reject your request, your card will not be charged. Once the booking has been validated and paid, you will receive an email confirming your booking.
What's a bareboat charter?
A bareboat is simply a boat that is rented without crew or skipper - you will need to skipper and navigate it yourself.
Do I need certification if I charter bareboat?
It differs everywhere therefore get in contact for a better answer! Generally speaking if you're chartering a power boat, you'll need a day skipper license (theory and practice).
