The hirer’s verbal or written reservation is valid according to the information in our brochure and commits him/her to observe the general conditions without reservations.
Our boats can also be rented for 10/11 days (for example Saturday to Wednesday). For the price calculation, the weekly price is divided by 7 and multiplied by the number of days in each period.
An initial payment of 30% of the holiday price is due with your booking, the remaining total is due 1 month before the voyage. Failure to pay the balance on the due date will be interpreted by snaily as a notice of cancellation (see below).
Should you cancel your booking for any reason, you will be charged € 120.- handling costs per booking. If you cancel your voyage less than 3 months before the beginning of the cruise you will be charged the following rates:
from 90 to 61 days before: 25% of the arrangement price
from 60 to 46 days before: 50% of the arrangement price
from 45 to 0 days before: 100% of the arrangement price
A cancellation insurance must be concluded. If the hirer is not already in possession of one, snaily will charge approximately 4% of the arrangement price together with the booking. This is to guarantee the insured the repayment of the cancellation expenses which would have been due to the company in accordance with the cancellation conditions. The insurance is valid if the hirer cancels the booking before departure for one of the following reasons:
- Serious illness, serious accident, death of the insured, of his/her spouse, of any near relative.
This guarantee covers all members of the crew. Cancellation for any of the above reasons should be made in writing to snaily within 5 days of the incident accompanied by the relevant documents: notice of dismissal or redundancy, medical certificate, death certificate etc.
Whenever possible, changes can be made for an extra charge of € 120.- per booking.
