Checkin and Checkout

  • How will we find the boat on the first day? +

    Taxis know all the marinas, but we send you a detailed Welcome Pack in advance. Once you're at the marina we'll meet you at reception.

  • What days do your holidays start and finish? +

    You can pick any day of the week.

  • Where can we sail from? +

    We sail in Croatia and Greece. The main start points are Dubrovnik, Split and Trogir in Croatia and Athens, Corfu and Lavrion in Greece.

  • Croatia - how much money should i budget for food and yacht running costs? +

    The average for a 6-8 guest party will be HRK 500.00 per adult per day. This amount includes estimates for all breakfasts, lunches, evening meals, wine with dinner, and the yacht and skipper running costs. Add HRK 200.00 per adult per day for Private Yacht Tour Catamarans.

  • Greece - how much money should i budget for food and yacht running costs? +

    The average for a 6-8 guest party will be EUR 65.00 per adult per day. This amount includes estimates for all breakfasts, lunches, evening meals, wine with dinner, and the yacht and skipper running costs. Add EUR 15 per adult per day for private yacht tour Catamarans.

  • Are there other costs we need to be aware of? +

    Yes. The yacht and skipper running costs are not included in your payments so far so you will need to pay for these as they are incurred.

    This collective term includes: Mooring Fees, Diesel top-up and Skipper & Hostess food and meals. These are estimated at the time of enquiry according to the boat and number of guests.

  • Is the kitchen onboard equipped? +

    Every yacht has a fully equipped onboard kitchen with everything - refrigeration, oven, stove, cutlery, crockery and pots/pans.

    The kitchens are mainly used for simple breakfast and lunch preparation, but rarely used for dinners because the majority of guests prefer to eat onshore.

    Of course if you decide to anchor on one of the evenings then cooking onboard is fine.

  • Who does the initial food shopping/provisioning? +

    You will have time before departure to shop for your initial groceries so wait to speak with your skipper.

    Depending on your start marina, we are able to offer a shopping service and needs to be booked in advance.

    *** For Dubrovnik departures, the first 8 private yacht tour bookings in each week will receive a free shopping service.

  • Do the marinas have a proper address that I can type into google? +

    Yes. The full address are published on our website and provided in the Welcome Pack with a map on where to meet us.

  • Do I need a passport or valid identification with me? +

    Yes. You must hold a valid passport at all times during your stay in Croatia or Greece. Please do not make travel arrangements until you have a valid passport.

    For British Citizens, detailed and up-to-date passport information to obtain or renew your passport can be found by visiting the government website The UK Passport Office suggests passports be valid for at least six months after your return. To obtain your passport please visit

  • Does Getaway Sailing arrange pre / post trip onshore accommodation in the cities of arrival and departure? +

    Yes for short stays of 1 or 2 nights, but not for longer hotel or villa accommodation etc. Please, let us know if you at the time of booking.

  • I have heard there are costs at checkin. Where do you present these? +

Pass, Visum, Medisinsk Helse

Trenger jeg pass? (UK Only)


Turister er pålagt å reise med pass i Hellas, selv om Hellas er medlem av EU og Schengen. I tillegg vil de fleste flyselskaper i EU kun godta pass som reiseidentifikasjon.

Vi henviser deg til det norske politiet’s hjemmesider vedrørende pass-informasjon for norske statsborgere:

Trenger jeg visum?


Hellas er Schengen-medlem og tillater fri reise for alle med pass fra Norge, Sverige, Danmark og en rekke andre land. Det er den reisendes ansvar å sjekke om hans eller hennes pass er tilstrekkelig. Reisende fra land utenfor EØS må ha pass gyldig i minst 3 måneder etter planlagt reise.

Hvilke dokumenter trenger jeg for medisinsk hjelp?


I besittelse av et gyldig E111 Helsetrygdekort har du tilgang til helse og trygdehjelp i Hellas. Helsevesenet i Hellas er moderne og av høy kvalitet, men du må likevel betale for ikke-akutte tilfeller. Vi anbefaller sterkt å ta ut reiseforsikring for ditt opphold for å forsikre deg mot legekostnader.
