When you wish to charter a boat, you should send us a request by Email or via our “Quick Quote”, or “YachtSearch” functions and we will reply with a list of charter boat OFFERS to meet your request. You just need let us know which boat you want to charter (from the offers we provide) and SCI will send you an “OPTION” with a “ProForma Invoice” with all the details you need to book the boat and details of the payments needed to confirm your OPTION as a BOOKING. Your OPTION is a reservation, which will hold the yacht for approximately 5 days (dependant on the charter operator).
You will need to pay your deposit / first payment to confirm the BOOKING and then your final payment will be due between 1 to 2 months before the date of charter. If you book a “last minute” charter, then the FULL cost must be paid in one sum.
On arrival at the charter base you may need to pay for the transit log and for any extra services you have ordered and leave the charter boat security deposit (a deposit waiver may be offered to replace the security deposit).
All the payments and costs will be clearly listed in the charter offer you receive when confirming your OPTION and BOOKING the boat.
All booking and agreements are reviewed by SCI before they are sent to our clients, so no surprise charges will appear, but if you are unsure about any information, we are here to help and guarantee a safe and enjoyable charter holiday.
You can pay SCI either by direct bank transfer or by credit card (using Paypal). Payment details and options can be found HERE.
