    Cancellation conditions If borders are open and mandatory quarantine can be avoided by tests, free cancellation is not possible. In the event that the borders close before the start of your rental, partners in Croatia are ready to issue a letter of credit in the amount already paid (credit is valid for the nautical season 2021, some partners also offer credit for 2022). Partners also offer the option of credit if you are placed in mandatory quarantine and cannot take a test to avoid it. If the new term/vessel is more expensive than the originally selected one, you have to pay the difference in price. Credit can be used for a new sailboat rental exclusively within the fleet of the selected charter operator. If the new chosen date is cheaper, some charter operators refund the difference. If you wish to cancel a booking for subjective reasons (for example, fear of infection), cancellation is only possible in accordance with the general terms and conditions of the charter operator.
