Q: What is the yacht charter cancelation policy?

A: In the event of yacht charter cancelation, the following cancelation fees apply:
1. For bookings cancelled more than 90 days before embarkation:  Cancelation fees Euro 150
2. For bookings cancelled between 90 days to 31 days before embarkation: First payment 50% is retained
3. For bookings cancelled less than 30 days before embarkation: Full payment 100% is retained
If the yacht is rented again in the same period and under same conditions, cancelation fees will be refunded.
For your own interest, you are strongly advised to take an appropriate holiday insurance which will cover your losses in an undesired cancellation case.

Ionian Charter reserves the right to refund charterer payments only if succeeds in letting the Yacht to another Charterer for the same period and under the same conditions. In the event that the Charterer should elect to terminate the charter and deliver the Yacht prior to the date designated in this Agreement, the Owner shall not be liable to the return of any proportional part of the hire money.

I would like to say a big thank you to Ionian charter, Mrs Vrioni and all the team!

We had a great time and everything run smoothly, as I was expecting!

That was the forth flotilla I organised with your company and I can say that every time you are getting better!

Lets take things from the beginning.

All the communication via email and phone to organise the charter was very efficient for a rather uncommon demand as I wanted 3 yachts for an one way Athens to Lefkas.

When we arrived at your base in Athens at 10:30am I couldnt expect anything more. You had all the paper work ready, crewlists, insurance covers, documents etc.. We completed paperwork for 3 yachts in 10 minutes!

Then, the yachts were ready for handover! It was the first time I met Stathis on his working capacity (I met him twice before at the boot). His handovers were perfect, quick, good communication and he addressed everything we needed to know.

The yachts were clean, all tanks full and all equipment in good working condition. By 2pm we departed for our first destination.

During the week we didnt encounter any issue with the yachts.

Regarding the weather conditions, although the wind was occasionally fresh, reaching force 6-7, we were lucky that we had easterlies. this gave us the chance to enjoy some sailing.

All three yachts have reputable speed under power at cruising rpm and are good under sail. Captain Stathis and Markella have a proper Genoa whereas Christina is compensated by her batten main sail.

When we arrived at Lefkas Marina it was a nice surprise to see Stathis there again as he coordinated the check out with your base manager.

Check out procedures were smooth as well.

Regarding Nikos, your base manager at Lefkas, we spoke on the phone on Thursday to arrange the delivery of the yachts, he was waiting for us at the diesel station and directed us to our births. He is a great guy.

I also attach a few photos. Notice the impression in the faces of the crew when crossing the canal!

I believe the above more or less covers how our week was.

I trust your company and I would definitely recommend it to any one looking for charters in Greece.

Once again I would like to thank all the team and I am looking forward to expand our cooperation in the future.
