These terms and conditions apply to the rental of boats from [Your Company Name]. Please read them carefully before booking a boat. By booking a boat, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
- No speedboat license is required for the rental of a fiberglass boat with a 30hp motor or a rigid inflatable boat (RIB type with air tubes) with a 15hp motor. To rent a more powerful speedboat, you will be asked to demonstrate your speedboat license and an official document of identification.
- According to relevant Greek legislation, a speedboat operator's license issued in a foreign country and held by a Greek or a foreigner is accepted if it has been issued or officially recognized by a governmental authority of the country of origin. In this case, you must produce a certified/official translation of the license and a certificate from an overarching state authority or embassy/consular authority certifying the issuing authority's competence.
- For boats requiring a license, operator license review with official translation and certification is mandatory before delivery. Otherwise, the reservation will be cancelled. The operator must be over 21 years old, and official ID may be requested.
- Rental fees are paid in full before boat delivery. If booked for multiple days, the total balance is due on the first day.
- Early returns are non-refundable. The service provider may re-rent the boat for the remaining period.
- A 50 euro delay charge applies for up to 30 minutes after the agreed return time. Leaving the boat elsewhere incurs transportation and lost income charges.
- Boats are delivered with full fuel tanks, not included in the price. Refuel at the end or pay the petrol company directly, if they're onsite.
- For multi-day bookings, use the boat from 9am to 8pm and return it before sunset to pick it up again the next day.
- If the booked boat becomes unavailable (e.g., damage, theft), a similar boat at the same or lower price will be provided. If replacement is impossible, an alternative date or refund will be offered.
- As required by law, boats are equipped with life-saving and emergency equipment, leaflets on safe cruising, and a nautical map of the area.
