Benefits of forward planning for your next yacht charter...
Many advantages come with booking your luxury private yacht charter early. Here are some of the practical reasons our yacht charter experts advise booking in advance and you’ll thank yourself for planning ahead too…
Choice Choice Choice!
Chartering a yacht with Ahoy Club is nothing less than unforgettable, it’s an experience that’s highly personalised and bespoke to ensure you can enjoy your holiday to its fullest. Getting the most out of your private yacht charter experience all begins with helping you choose a yacht that matches your requirements and desires. Yachts come in all shapes, sizes, and layouts, therefore, it’s important to let your Account Manager know what’s important to you. The benefit of booking in advance is that you have more yachts to choose from to meet your requirements and secure the yacht of your dreams. Not only will you get the best yacht for your needs, but there’s also a stronger possibility of securing a further discount on top of the competitive Ahoy Club rates.
Booking in advance also increases your chances of securing your preferred dates and port bookings. If you are travelling with family during school holidays or over peak times such as July, August or Christmas and New Year, these dates move quickly in popular regions so we would advise booking as far in advance as possible to secure your key dates and yacht.
An Abundance of Time to Plan Your Itinerary
One of the many perks of a charter holiday is the freedom it gives you to explore and pursue your personal interests. Planning your charter itinerary is an exciting step in the charter experience and whilst our 24/7 concierge team have itineraries built on personal experiences available for last-minute bookings, we love to take the time to plan a bespoke itinerary for you and your guests.
Get Front Row Seats
A significant and often overlooked aspect of chartering a yacht: renting a suitable evening berth at a first-class marina. Some of the most popular marinas in places like Capri, St Tropez and Monaco get booked up very quickly. If you are looking to charter a superyacht during a high-profile event such as Cannes Film Festival or the Monaco Grand Prix, we highly recommend booking 9-12 months in advance to secure that front row berth. For other iconic events such as New Year Eve in St Barth’s or Sydney Harbour, we recommend booking six months in advance to ensure you get the best deal but also the choice of position.
Savings on Flights
Booking flights in advance can save you money and stress. If you have your heart set on a remote destination or region there may be fewer flights per week and these may get booked many months in advance
Booking your flights early can help save yourself any unnecessary stress and extra financial costs of last-minute bookings – after all, everyone loves a good deal and savings on flights means more dollar for activities on your yacht charter. Fancy a daily massage?
