How to Plan Your Charter

13th Mar 2018

Would you like to go on vacation knowing you’ve saved hundreds of dollars? It’s a pretty easy thing to do, you just need to book at the right time and consider different charter options. We’ve got some easy planning ideas for you so you can have an awesome charter and have some more spending money.

Book the right way
If you know you want to sail in 2018, head to one of the many boat shows we exhibit at and get a 5% discount if you book at the show. If you know your dates, book 180 days before you travel and get an early bird discount of up to 10% off Mediterranean charters and 5% for the Caribbean and exotic locations. Although this means you have to make a decision early on in the year, you will have a greater choice of boats and flights.

Think about sailing for longer
You can see a lot in a week or two, but you really get to know the culture and way of life of a destination if you stay a little longer. It makes financial sense too. If you sail for more than two weeks, you can secure an extra 5% off your charter price.

If you book with Dream Yacht Charter again, you’ll get a handy 5% loyalty discount.

Try out a delivery charter
We have an ever-expanding fleet of +900 boats across +45 destinations and there are plenty of opportunities to help us move our fleet around. Sailing one-way from pick-up destination to a delivery destination can be a great way to see more, sail longer legs, use your sailing knowledge and get a great discount too.

You do need to have experience for our fleet delivery charters and a solid sailing resume. Our boats are often moved prior to key sailing seasons and that can mean heavy seas and strong winds. You also need to be flexible too, as dates can move due to weather conditions and may not even be guaranteed if the hurricane season is particularly fierce. You need to be handy around a boat and confident that you can take charge to solve any problems on board too.  

Once you’ve reached the delivery destination, you can relax and enjoy the sun, sea and beaches. An important consideration is whether your crew want to vacation this way. If you are interested, contact us to get added to our stand-by list by calling 855.650.8902.
