Working method and conditions GoFunSailing


Our role

We act as a mediator between the customer and the charter companies in the
whole world. This means that we are not the owner of the yachts.
Because we have been renting out yachts for years and we know many suppliers personally,
we can help you find the sailing yacht that suits your needs the best.
We ourselves have sailed in many sailing areas so we can advise what is the best sailing area
for you.


Our method


Offer:

You are interested in a sailing holiday and ask us for a quote.
You will receive an offer from us within 2 days. If you are interested in one of the yachts then
we can take an option on the yacht without obligations.
At that moment this yacht cannot be booked by anyone else. You have time to book your
tickets or arrange other matters before you book definitively.
We always inform you know when your option expires.

weeks before departure. Payment can only be done by banktransfer!!! We also pay this directly
to the charter company to ensure the booking.
On your invoice the date is mentioned that the second payment is due.
If you exceed the date, you are at risk that your booking will be cancelled. The supplier can
rent out the yacht to another person.

2. The contract with terms and conditions, you have to read this carefully, sign and email
back to us.
The contract and conditions are from the charter company of which we mediate the yacht. The
original contract will be signed at the base at the hand over of the yacht.
In the unlikely event that something is wrong with your boat during your holiday, you must
immediately contact the charter company. They will do their utmost to solve the problem as
quickly as possible. If you have problems with the communication we will help you with that.
Also if the problems are not solved we will mediate.
This must be done at the time of the problem and not after returning home. If you have
complaints about the boat, please contact immediately to the charter company, possibly take
pictures so that in a dispute a tangible proof.
We are not on site and can not judge this from a distance without photos.
The contract describes in how much time a problem / defect has to be resolved. If this takes
longer, you lose precious holiday time so ask compensation from the charter company.
This is only possible on site during the check-out, before you return home. After your return
home it is very difficult and our experience is that this never will succeed.

General conditions for Yacht Charter

3. Crewform, this is a list on which the data must come from all passengers. The port
authorities in the various countries require this.
Also fill in your mobile number on the crew list, flight details so that the charter company know
how late you will arrive at the base. This is taken into account in planning regarding the
cleaning and preparation of the yachts. We would also like to receive a copy of your
sailing license (digital if possible, a scan by email) so we can also send this directly
to the charter company, this saves time at the check in on the base.

Cancellation of the trip
We advise you to organise a cancellation and travel insurance.
Most charter companies have the following conditions:
Up to 8 weeks before departure you will lose your 50% deposit on cancellation.
After this you will lose the entire travel sum.
You can look forward to a wonderful sailing holiday and start with the
preparation.

We have a packing list for you, a document that explains how to act on arrival (check in and
out) and you will receive 4 weeks for the start of your sailing holiday a holiday voucher with
information about all the details of the base.
Please inform family and friends with these phone numbers so they can get in contact in case
of an emergency.
