BOOKING CONDITIONS

Prices

Prices are valid at the time of publication. Andaman Yachting reserves the right to amend its advertised prices at any time. Prospective clients will be advised of any price changes at the time of their booking enquiry. Prices are fixed when a booking is confirmed. 

 

Payment

A deposit of 25% of the total price is required in order to secure a booking. Payment of the balance is required 30 days before the start date. Bookings made less than 30 days before the start date must be paid in full at the time of booking. Bookings will not be confirmed until the appropriate booking deposit is received. Andaman Yachting reserves the right to accept another booking at any time until a booking deposit is received and a booking confirmation is issued.

 

Cancellation

Cancellation by a client up to 30 days before the start date will be subject to a cancellation charge of 25% of the total price. In the event of client cancellation within 30 days before the start date, the total price shall be paid in full with no refund, unless another acceptable client can be found, in which case the cancellation charge will be 25% of the total price and the payment balance will be refunded in full. In the unlikely event of cancellation by Andaman Yachting, amounts paid will be refunded in full but Andaman Yachting will not be liable for any loss or expense or other damage of any nature due to such cancellation.

 

Young Persons

The minimum age for participants on courses is 14, unless agreed otherwise. Young people under the age of 18 must be accompanied at all times by a parent or guardian or other responsible adult.

 

Complaints

Andaman Yachting aims to maintain the highest possible standards, but in the unlikely event of a complaint, it must be notified in writing, within 28 days from the end of the trip.


Insurance

The yacht is covered by fully comprehensive marine insurance but clients are responsible for their own personal insurance and are strongly recommended to arrange adequate cover for medical expenses, loss of personal effects, third party liability and cancellation etc. 

 

Liability

Sailing is an active sport and can include potential risks to persons and property. Accidents are rare but by making a booking, clients are deemed to accept that they participate at their own risk, and that Andaman Yachting and its servants, agents and employees do not accept any liability whatsoever for any personal injury or for any loss or damage to any personal effects or property howsoever this may be caused. 

 

Non-Availability and Delay

Non-availability or delay due to technical problems and/or bad weather is rare, but these are inherent risks in sailing and delay can occur. Andaman Yachting does not accept any liability for non-availability or delay due to adverse weather or due to events outside its control. If Andaman Yachting should be responsible for any non-availability or delay lasting more than 24 hours, clients will be reimbursed pro-rata for the time lost. However, Andaman Yachting does not accept any liability for any other loss or expense, or for damage of any nature that may be suffered by a client or any other party due to any non-availability or delay howsoever this may be caused.

 

Acknowledgements

By making a booking, clients are deemed to have read and accepted our Booking Conditions and our Privacy Policy and to have advised all members of their party of the terms and conditions contained therein.

Clients are also deemed to have agreed that during their course or charter, they and all members of their party will accept the authority and decisions of the skipper at his sole discretion in all matters concerning the operation and safety of the yacht and the conduct of those on board.
