Useful information about your sailing holiday
|Sailing holiday enquiry|
The following general information is designed to answer many of the question you may have about your sailing holiday with Greek Sails, how to book, how to travel to Poros and we hope most other questions you may have.
The easiest way to enquire about the availability of a bareboat yacht or space on one of our flotilla sailing holidays is to use our online enquiry form. This allows you to explain your requirements. We will then contact you to provide answers to your questions and enquiry. You may also telephone us and speak to us directly if you prefer.
The easiest way to enquire about the availability of places on one of our sailing training courses is to use our online enquiry form. This allows you to select the particular sail training course you are interested in and to also provide any other information that is relevant. We will then contact you to discuss your sail training in more detail and to ensure you are booked on the appropriate sail training course. You may also telephone us and speak to us directly if you prefer.
We have not yet introduced our online bareboat yacht charter and flotilla sailing holiday booking system, therefore please use our online enquiry form to request a sailing holiday booking. We will then confirm your flotilla sailing holiday or charter details to you via Email.
Because we are a small family-run business we can often accommodate special requirements. We are not constrained to only booking what it says in the brochure! For instance we are one of the few yacht charter companies that will offer charters for dates other than Saturday to Saturday.
If you have any special requirements please let us know; you may be surprised and we hope to be able to accommodate your request. Simply note your requirement in any enquiry you send us and we’ll be happy to try and accommodate your needs.
When your yacht charter is confirmed a 30% deposit becomes due. The remaining charter price is due one month before the commencement of your charter, e.g.:
Payments can be made by any of:
Yacht security deposit
We require a deposit to be held as security against the safe return of your charter yacht. Security deposits are paid on arrival and may be paid either in Euro cash or by debit or credit card.
The deposit is fully returnable dependant upon the safe return of the yacht in good and clean order at the end of your charter.
Start & end times of your yacht charter
Your yacht will be available for you from 17:00 (5pm) on the first day of your charter until 09:00 (9am) on the final day.
It may be possible for you to have access to your yacht before 17:00 by prior arrangement, but please be aware we will be cleaning your yacht and carrying out any necessary maintenance during the day and so early access, even if agreed, may not always be possible as it is dependant upon the return to the yacht from its previous charter.
We require access to the yacht from 09:00 on the last day of your charter so that we may complete final cleaning and maintenance tasks.
It may be possible for you to sail from Poros on the evening of the first day of your charter, however, please advise us if you wish to do this as we will need to obtain clearance for you to sail from the port Police. It is unlikely you will be able to depart before 18:00 at the earliest. This will then not leave you a lot of time to sail to the next port, although if you wish to overnight away from the port of Poros, there are several quiet and secure bays nearby.
Final yacht cleaning
Please note that although we undertake final cleaning, we require you to return your yacht to us clean and tidy. If a yacht is returned in a poor condition we may levy an additional cleaning charge.
We are a family-run yacht charter and sailing holiday company and so are not permitted to arrange your air travel to Athens unlike a tour operator. However, we are happy to arrange transfers for you from Athens International airport to Poros including both taxi or minibus collection from the airport and ferry tickets as required.
This means you are free to travel by any airline via any airport to best suit you; you are not tied to a tour operator’s pre-booked flights. If you book early, flights from the UK to Athens may typically be about €100 per person each way even with the major airlines.
We provide full details on how to travel to our yacht base in Poros on our “Travelling to Greek Sails” page.
