What time of year should I look for the best yacht charter deals?

For early booking discounts, the best time of year to look for yacht charter deals is during the off-season, which typically runs from late April to early May, late September to October. During these months, the weather is still warm enough for sailing and water sports, but there are fewer tourists and therefore lower prices. 

You can also find good deals on yacht charters during the shoulder seasons, which are the months that fall between the high and low seasons. The shoulder seasons for yacht chartering typically run from mid-May to mid-June and from mid-September to mid-October.

If you get an early booking discount or book a last-minute charter, you’ll get exactly the same service as if you paid the full charter rate: same charter terms, same qualified crew, same luxury yacht, same favourite food freshly prepared by your chef.

What type of yacht charter special offers can I take advantage of ?

Best Value

Best value for money is defined as the most advantageous combination of price, quality of service and condition of the yacht to meet the highest charterer’s requirements.

Early Booking

Booking a yacht early can give charterers a better deal on their next charter. Yacht owners are always happy to secure a booking well in advance. It can also allow charterers to start planning their charter itinerary in the best conditions. Book in advance and enjoy up to 5 to 10% (or more…) off your charter.

Extra Day

Charter a yacht for a week (or less) and receive a free night or day, excluding running costs (fuel, food, mooring…).

Luxury Yacht Charter Deals

Charter Deal comes with a powerful and easy to use 11 criteria search engine.

Fill the gap

Fill the gap charters allow the savvy charterer to enjoy a short charter (2 or 3 days or more) between two bookings.

Fill the gap charters means your itinerary and boarding location are not really flexible.

Free Delivery

Delivery/re-delivery fees (cost of fuel only or cost of fuel + fee to deliver the yacht to the chosen location) only apply if you wish to charter a yacht to a location other than where it is based. In some cases the owner will not charge a fee to deliver the yacht to the location you wish to embark.

The delivery fee can be quite high.

If you are flexible with your travel dates, you can take advantage of last minute deals. Yacht rental companies often offer discounts on unsold yachts that are available for immediate rental. The yacht is put back on the charter market, often with an incentive, as a result of a last-minute cancellation. Booking late means you can swoop in and get some amazing deals on your yacht charter, giving you more value for money than if you’d booked ahead. However, your itinerary and boarding location may be less flexible.

Last minute charters require you to be flexible about where and when you want to charter, which means you may end up on an adventure you never expected.

Charter discount: read the terms

Remember to always read the terms and conditions carefully before booking a charter and make sure you ask your charter broker any questions you may have before making a booking. 

Remember: last-minute deals offer less flexibility in terms of repositioning the yacht or changing the itinerary.

Key points to know when booking a discount charter

  • What is the Cancellation Policy?
    Things can happen, plans can change. Always understand the charter company’s cancellation policy before booking. It can also be a good idea to consider travel insurance for such high-value bookings.
  • What is the itinerary?
    Last minute booking may offer less flexibility: some yacht charters offer a pre-set itinerary, while others are customizable based on your interests. Ask what sort of flexibility there is in choosing destinations and activities.
  • What is Included in the charter fee
    Depending on the cruising destination and the details of the charter agreement, it’s crucial to ascertain what’s included in the charter fee.
  • What is the crew’s experience?
    Just because you’re booking a discounted charter doesn’t mean you’ll get inferior service or experience. The quality of your charter experience can depend heavily on the crew. It’s important to ask about their qualifications, experience and familiarity with the areas you’ll be exploring during your trip.
