Standard or Flexible.
You can opt for an All-inclusive vacation whereby you keep all your costs in check and you budget exactly what you are going to spend. This will cover your half board meals, standard itinerary with fixed navigation hours per day.
The other, most popular practice is an expenses-based fund. This allows you a big flexibility in terms of itinerary planning and the meals are prepared to your preferences and compared to the best restaurants in the area. You will fill a Food Preference Sheet for your crew to plan ahead and shop the most personalised food and beverages at your will. This Advanced Provisioning Allowance fund is an advance amount initially made available to the crew for food, fuel and harbour fees provisioning throughout your sailing vacation. It is an approximate amount of 10-20% of your yacht rental figure and it is deposited with your balance payment prior your arrival. The fund covers these extra costs and is a customary practice so that you will not be hassled every time there is a cash amount to cover for any type of provisioning. You will be provided with a full and detailed account, receipts and invoices of each cost at the end of your vacation. Any remaining cash will be refunded to you.
No Hidden Costs.
All costs are clearly listed on your yacht rental documentation so that you will not find yourself unpleasantly surprised upon arrival.
