Back to Travel Advisory


When you entrust us with your invaluable vacation time, we want you to feel confident in those travel plans. To provide you with peace of mind amid uncertain circumstances, we are offering new flexible rebooking terms, valid for new and existing bookings made on or before the 31st December 2020, and which depart on or before the 30th September 2021.

In addition to our flexible rebooking terms, our updated Safety Measures endeavor to keep you and your family safe when visiting our bases.

With different options available, you have the freedom to plan your yacht charter experience, confident that if your charter with The Moorings is postponed due to Covid-19 (*please see below the qualifying reasons for this exemption), you may at any time up until 7 days prior to departure either:

  • Change the departure dates of your booking. This is subject to the following conditions:- If your charter departs between the 16th December 2020 – 2nd January 2021, then the notice period to make such a change will be 30 days, not 7.

Except as stated otherwise, all other terms and conditions apply.

  • Opt to receive a refund credit for the charter amount (provided your balance is paid in full), which will be valid for any departure within 12 months from your original departure date. "Charter amount" refers to the cost of the yacht charter and ancillary extras booked at the same time, but does not include flights or other third-party services to which normal cancellation charges apply.

*Qualifying Reasons:

  1. We have confirmed that we are unable to operate your holiday due to local government restrictions.
  2. You are unable to reach your destination due to confirmed border closures or if your Foreign Office (or equivalent Government department) advises against ‘all‘ or ‘all but essential travel‘ to your booked destination AND such measures or advice is confirmed to still be in place on your date of departure.
  3. Any member of your party displays symptoms of Covid-19 in the four weeks prior to your departure. Please check with your local government health department for advice on what these symptoms are and, to benefit from this policy, we will require a doctor’s note confirming that you have presented with symptoms of Covid-19.

Except as stated above all terms and conditions agreed to by you when you made your booking, including with regards cancellation, changes, or otherwise continue to apply.
