Here is the most important information about booking and payments. If you have any questions, drop us a line at: [email protected]
Before you Book:
1. Gather your friends
There is plenty of space on each yacht to take your friends along. If you wish you can all be on the same yacht but we already seen many cases where people wanted to sail on different yachts to mingle and get to know other people. In the end we reunite every evening in the same port, marina or bay!
2. Choose a destination and dates
We organize Naleia Yachting trips in various places. Year by year the program changes as we want to keep exploring new destinations and new regions within already known destinations.
If you have an idea for exploring a new region, drop us a line at: [email protected]
WHAT IF I TRAVEL ALONE?
More than 50% of people sailing with us are travelling alone. We always make sure that you are in a cabin with a person of the same sex. Our Selectan algorithm makes sure that your crew composes of the best-fit people!

While chartering a yacht it is normal to put down a certain amount of money as a deposit for the yacht. The deposit covers any damage that is caused during the cruise and is a security for the chartering company. For each yacht, every crew should put down 1500-3000 EUR of a deposit. Any damage, higher than value of the deposit, is covered from the yacht`s insurance (reduced by the deposit value).
This is how it is normally done, but I thought it might be somewhat troublesome for you. So I came up with the Trustful Social Deposit…
Not only I do not take any deposit from you, but also I use the strength of Naleian community to protect single individuals. How?
- A small amount from your booking fee is taken for the Trustful Social Deposit.
- The same is done from everyone who joins any Naleia Yachting trip.
- The amount that builds up is used as a sort of insurance.
When is it applied?
If anything happens whereby the obvious fault lies neither with you, nor on the malfunctioning yacht equipment (chartering company fault) the Trustful Social Deposit covers the damage. In this way Naleia minimizes the financial impact that any unforeseen accident might have on any Naleian.
Naturally, the Trustful Social Deposit, does not release you from the responsibility for any intentional damage (this is the trustful part :)).
EXAMPLE OF A TRUSTFUL SOCIAL DEPOSIT USE
The best example is a torn sail. When this happens, the chartering company claims (usually) that the crew sailed the yacht in the stormy conditions. You claim that the sail was not properly maintained. It is practically impossible to win this case. Therefore, the Trustful Social Deposit covers such matters for you.
Refund & Cancellation
First of all, cancellations are a natural situation. However, we choose not to calculate them in our business case, as this increases the base price for each and every person.
Therefore, if you cancel:
- more than 120 days before event start date, 90% of your booking fee is refunded.
- between 120 and 60 days before event start date, 60% of your booking fee is refunded.
- between 60 and 31 days before event start date, 30% of your booking fee is refunded.
- less than 31 days before event start date, 0% of your booking fee is refunded.
At any time it is possible to provide a substitute for your booking. You contact your friends and family and we contact the reserve list (if the trip is booked out). In such a case the change of booking (for the substitute name) is made free of charge.
The only manipulation fee is the cost of bank transfer or credit card / paypal charge back.
