Why you should book your next Ionian sailing holiday with Nisos Yacht Charter

We realise that there are many, many options available to you when booking your sailing holiday in the Ionian Greek Islands, so this is a little reminder why we think you should definately book your next sailing holiday with Nisos Yacht Charter!

1.  Firstly it is important to recognise the difference between agents and operators.  Agents will have a web site and an office and advertise hundreds or thousands of boats from around the world.  The Agent will then find an operator and a boat to fit with your requirements and hand you over to the operator to deliver your holiday.  

Selling a holiday is relatively easy compared to actually delivering the holiday - so you should be doing your due diligence on the actual operator and not the agent.  Yes the Agent can be great at paperwork and web design, but they will not have any input into the actual holiday itself.  So if you are booking your next sailing holiday via an agent, make sure you know who the operator is and do your due diligence on the operator.

Nisos Yacht Charter is the actual Operator.  You are booking your holiday direct with the people who will look after you from booking to your return home.  There will be no expectation gaps, no false promises and the boats and service will be described accurately.  

2.  Nisos Yacht Charter is a British company.

3.  Simple pricing with no hidden costs - when booking a sailing holiday or yacht charter there is normally a large number of options, most of which are obligitary, such as end cleaning, fuel, insurance, outboard for the tender etc etc.  With Nisos all of these are included in the price.  We keep it very simple and transparant.

4.  No financial risk if you damage the yacht - included in the price is the collision damage waiver, which basically covers you from any financial exposure if the yacht is damaged. There is no excess to pay and no security deposit held at base.  Why do we do this?  We want our sailing clients to tell us ASAP if they damage the boat. If there is a significant security deposit at risk, there is a natural barrier to perhaps not mentioning some damage.  We want to know so we can check it and repair/replace it before it becomes a bigger problem.

5. Maximum time away from base - if you arrive at our base by 4pm on the Sunday afternoon, we can get you onboard the yacht, briefed and away from base on the same day, and we only require you to return back to base by the Sunday morning of departure at 9am.  Thus you get every night away from base!  We have many beautiful harbours and bays within an hour of our base at Perigiali for that all important first and last night away from base.  If sailing from further north on the island, such as Lefkas Marina or Preveza, you have very limited options close by.

6. Nisos Yacht Charter is rated Number 1 operator in the Ionian on Trip Adviser in our area - make sure the boat operator you are booking the holiday with is on Trip Adviser.  Trip Adviser is widely regarded as being the largest and best independent review site on the web.  It is free for companies to list themselves and they have no control over reviews left by clients.  It is a superb method of advertising and it is FREE!  So if a charter operator is not on Trip Adviser, you need to ask yourself, "why not....?".

7.  Beautifully presented and maintained sailing yachts - our yachts are "owner managed". They are owned by individuals and entrusted to Nisos Yacht Charter to manage the yacht on their behalf.  The yachts are all very high specification, lovingly prepared and expertly maintained.  There is no advertising plastered over the hull and boom either!

8.  Friendly, responsive staff from start to finish - when enquiring and booking your boat, you will only deal with Rowan Carver, one of the owners of Nisos Yacht Charter.  Rowan will guide you through the process, ensuring you are on the correct programme (bareboat, assisted bareboat or skippered) and the best matched boat to your requirements.  Rowan knows what is possible and what is not on holiday and will make sure your expectations are managed to what is possible by the Operation on the ground in Greece.  Once in Greece, all the Nisos staff will be extremely welcoming, accommodating and helpful.  

9.  Back up and support when needed - If you have any problems at all whilst out on your sailing holiday, we are only a phone call away.  If something stops working or you have a medical issue, we can be with you extremely quickly using our ex RNLI Atlantic 21 life boat.  Our superb mobile engineering team can fix pretty much anything and get you underway again with the minimum of fuss.

10.  Something for everyone!  We do Bareboat Charters, Assisted Bareboat Charters, Skippered Charters and Villa Holidays in the Ionian Islands, Greece.  We can accommodate all sailing abilities and ages.
