Your yacht (boat) charter price
is divided into two payments: the Reservation Fee and the Charter Fee. These
two payments are different both in nature and the payment method, and they have
to be made for
your charter to happen.
The Reservation Fee (the first
payment) should be paid on the day when you book the Yacht Charter. The Reservation Fee is a one-time
payment to secure your yacht reservation for a certain day and hour for a
selected yacht (boat) with a certain chartered yacht (boat) operator. Worldwide
Yacht Rentals LLC will provide you with the payment method for this. When this
first payment is received, Worldwide Yacht Rentals LLC will send you the
Voucher of Booking confirmation to your e-mail address or the WhatsApp number
where the selected yacht, date and time of the charter will be clearly stated.
This Reservation Fee is what you pay to Worldwide Yacht Rentals LLC for the
service of matching your booking request to the available chartable yachts the
company is offering and to secure your booking with the yacht (boat) operator.
The Reservation Fee is applied
against the selected yacht (boat) only. If you later choose to select another
yacht instead, the previously paid Reservation Fee cannot be transferred to that newly
selected yacht and is not refunded. You will have to pay a new Reservation Fee for
the newly selected yacht in this case.
The Charter Fee and Port fee
(the second payment) is the remaining part of the rental price of the yacht
(boat) charter and Port Fee, and this payment must be made at the time of
boarding on the departure day at the port with cash only. This Charter Fee is
what you pay to the operator of the yacht (boat) directly, and is not in any
part charged by Worldwide Yacht Rentals LLC. Please note that this direct payment
to the charter operator has to be made in cash and before the trip starts.
Your charter time begins at the
time stated in the Booking Confirmation Voucher along with other booking information. If you
fail to arrive on time, the vessel will be waiting for you, but no refunds or
extra time will be applied
for late arrivals.
If your yacht (boat) charter is
cancelled due to the weather conditions (hurricane, lightning storm or tornado)
preventing the yacht (boat) to operate or any other reasons by Worldwide
Yacht Rentals LLC, you may reschedule your charter or receive a 100% refund of
the Reservation Fee within 3 days.
«It’s too rainy», «it’s too
cloudy», «it’s too windy», «it’s too sunny», «thunderstorms may happen»
or «it’s too hot» are not considered as grounds for yacht cancellation,
rescheduling or Reservation Fee refund.
If you cancel the yacht charter
for any reasons of your own (unexpected disease, illness or injury, government
obligations like jury duty, court appearances or military duties, travel
advisories or other government guidance, cancellation or rescheduling of an
event for which the yacht reservation was made) the Reservation Fee is not
If you cancel your yacht
reservation due to airlines/or weather-related issues at either port of
departure or port of arrival, the Reservation Fee is not refundable.
No refunds either of the
Reservation Fee or the Charter Fee are made if the yacht charter ends earlier
because of: the client gets seasick or dizzy during the tour or at the request
of the client.
No refunds either of the
Reservation Fee or the Charter Fee are made if the client was unable to do
snorkeling activities due to the weather conditions.
No refunds of the Reservation
Fee are made for no-shows. If you fail to show, then your charter experience
will be considered complete and your Charter Fee will be forfeited, while the Reservation
Fee will not be refunded.
