Galazio Sailing has prepared an easy HOW-TO-BOOK plan in order to make your booking procedure a piece of cake!
The more information we get from your initial request, the more accurate answer you will get. It is advisable to fill in the “availability request form” so as to provide us with specific notes about your demands. We usually answer within the same day and this answer sometimes includes more than one available choice in terms of yacht types and itineraries.
If you are really interested in one offer (yacht, price, dates etc) you may ask for an “option”. In such a case, we block the yacht and reserve the offer for a week- until your final decision is made. Keep in mind that“options” requested either during high season or very close to the charter’s departure date, the duration of our “option” will be less than 1-one week. The blocked options will automatically be cancelled after the agreed period of days.
Right after you are decided on our offer, please confirm in written all the appropriate charter details you had asked during option period and/ or possible changes and special arrangements. Our company will re-confirm the booking at once by giving you a charter code (your ID number) useful for any future correspondence.
In order we complete the process, we will also e-mail you:
• The contract signed by us (Charter Party). You are kindly asked to mail the contract back to Galazio Sailing after you sign and complete your passport number.
• Invoice/ charter statement and costs analysis.
• A blank crew list which you should complete and forward back to us.
• A blank provisioning list to complete (if requested) and forward back to us.
Last but not least, we need to receive legible copies of the skipper’s and -if available- co-skipper’s certificate or sailing resume.
Note: We prefer all papers by email but if you prefer to receive hard copies by post mail, it is all possible as well.
Galazio Sailing expects a first deposit of 50% of the yacht charter fees at maximum 07 days after the signature of the contract. We should have received the rest 50% of the charter fees at least 30 days before embarkation. Funds should be deposited to our bank account in Greece:
Eurobank Ergasias S.A.
Branch of Peristeri (009)
For the account of Galazio Sailing LTD
The same number is also called IBAN
(International Bank Account Number): GR 5702600090000880200667982
The BIC “number” or formerly called Swift Code of Eurobank Ergasias S.A. is: ERBKGRAA
Other expenses such as skipper, cook, hostess or steward, pre-arranged provisions, land transfers are payable only upon charter’s departure. Final cleaning of the yacht is included for all charters (unless otherwise specified). Skipper is payable at the base prior to embarkation only in cash. Any extras you order (such as spinnaker, blister, windsurf etc) should be paid upon charter’s departure.
NOTE: No charters can commence in case Galazio Sailing has not received the full payment. Personal checks of any kind, for any payment, are not accepted. Bank drafts (wire money transfer), traveller cheques, certified bank cheques or cashier’s cheques, Visa & Master credit cards are all acceptable including deposit guarantee.
Our yachts are insured against fire, marine and collision risks, third party liability and any part or total loss or damage, in excess of the amount of the “security deposit” which any client pays at the departure base. For liability to third party is deemed to include cover at least as follows:
1. Loss of life, personal injury or illness € 293,470
2. Loss or damage to any other vessel or property € 146,735
3. Pollution Expenses € 88,041
The amount of the security deposit is returned to the charterer at once after the inspection of the boat, its gear and inventory list by the skipper and our representative. (Minor) damages or loss, made during the charter time, are estimated and charged after this procedure accordingly.
NOTE: The security deposit does not cover fuel/ water consumption, end-cleaning expenses, delay of re-delivery of the yacht without prior agreement with Galazio Sailing and any results of gross negligence which may raise legal actions against the author(s).
