FAQ: How Do I Pay For My Yacht Charter?
We have 3 efficient methods of payment.
Our Prefered Method
Bank Transfer is our standard preferred method of payment. Your payments are made in accordance with the payment plan set out by your Charter Agent. Typically you will be expected to pay 25 – 50% on booking, with the remainder due around 6 weeks before departure.
All Major Cards
Customers do still want the option to use major credit. SailChecker accepts all major credit cards except American Express. We do want to ensure we have the most competitive rates possible for everyone at all times. For that reason, the cost of this services is passed on. We don’t accept PayPal at this time.
If your are paying in a different currency to your supplier, Currency Transfer Agents are an efficient way of paying high ticket items goods in other currencies. We have accounts with two large partners, but will always work with you to accept payments from your prefered supplier too.
Passing on Received Benefits to You
Other Charter Brokers take a different approaches to the yacht charter payment process. Some simplify their business processes by aligning to the worse case scenario. This could mean, for instance, paying 50% on booking, where we would pass on any benefit which would see you pay only 25% with many companies. We can even make this a factor when helping you select your the perfect Charter Partner.
Payments are Passed on the Same Day
We don’t hold on to you money for any longer than is absolutely necessary to ensure the safest possible transaction. We pass all our payments onto your charter partner the same day they are received. This would even include overpayments (occasionally customers wish to re-risk exchange rate changes).
Most Charter Agents will send us proof of payment which will pass onto you.
