Covid 19 Promise
You can book with confidence this summer
Updated July 16
The summer is looking good for British holidaymakers to visit the Greek islands as UK quarantine restrictions will be lifted from July 19th. This means you’ll be able to travel to Greece, (quarantine free), and enjoy a yacht charter for one or two weeks this August.
You can reserve your boat now safe in the knowledge that if the quarantine is not lifted on July19th, then you can change your dates for free, or we’ll refund you in cash if you still prefer not to travel. See refunds section below.
You can trust in us
We have been operating for over 23 years, with thousands of happy guests returning year after year. This means you can count on us to ensure all necessary measures are in place to give you the holiday you deserve, allowing you to have 100% confidence in our enhanced health and safety standards, staff training and operating procedures.
We are members of ABTA with membership number Y6740. ABTA and ABTA Members help holidaymakers to get the most from their travel and assist them when things do not go according to plan. We are obliged to maintain a high standard of service to you by ABTA’s Code of Conduct.
If we know you’re travelling to a destination where you’ll need to self-isolate or quarantine on your arrival - either in Greece or your return to the UK - you will have the option to change your dates for free, anytime up until April 2023.
If we cannot operate your accommodation or the marina/island or border is closed for Coronavirus reasons you can change your dates to another holiday, for no charge. If you are booking this summer and the expected quarantine is not lifted (on July19) then - if you still choose not to travel - you can change your dates or get a full cash refund.
No Amendment fee
We’ve also scrapped our general amendment fee, so you can amend your dates up until your balance due date for no amendment fee. Our balance due date is reduced to 6 weeks before departure. See our terms.
Relaxed payments terms
We’ve also made a change to our balance due dates. We have reduced this to 6 weeks before departure, rather than our usual 12 weeks.
Reserve your holiday for just £175pp. Your final balance will be due 12 weeks before departure. For private chalets, deposits are 25%.
We have teamed up with Allianz to offer travel/medical insurance for our guests which will cover cancellation, curtailment and Covid-19. It will refund your accommodation, excursions and travel costs if:
1/ if you need to cancel your holiday due to you or anyone named on your policy testing positive for Covid-19
2/ if you fall ill with Covid-19 abroad and need medical treatment abroad and/or need to be repatriated to the UK
3/ If you are not allowed to board the plane (return, inbound flight) based on a suspicion that you (or someone booked to travel with you) has been exposed to Covid
Following FCDO advice
We will only travel to destinations that are exempt from the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office's (FCDO) advice against all but essential travel. If the FCDO advice means we cannot operate to your destination we will contact you to discuss your options an you will be able to amend your or cancel your holiday in line with our Covid Protection Policy.

Staying Safe on Holiday
The Greek islands should always remain a place of freedom and relaxation and we’ll always do our very best to ensure your holiday is everything you expect it to be. There may be a general capacity restriction, with special focus on transfer coaches, mealtime planning, public areas (lounges), use of leisure facilities and activities planning so that guests can still enjoy the beach, its watersports and the wide range of activities which will be available.
Our Beach Clubs were open throughout summer 2020 and are very familiar with Covid. They have already implemented robust new cleaning standards and pledge to offer the best possible protection against infections during these times. Our own waterfront staff will be implementing thorough cleaning measures of all beach and bike equipment (when handing it over to guests) and will practice social distancing.
Enjoying energising activities in beautiful surroundings (mask free!) is what it’s all about in the Greek islands! A benefit of our activities is that they all take place outside, and are led by conscientious instructors who will reduce group sizes and practice safe distancing.
Certain activities may require ‘closer contact’ or a partner (like a double handed boat), and these can often be organised so that you are teamed up with members from your own bubble. Read more on how activities will run.
