The biggest holiday of shopping season is upon us and on November 23rd all the discounts will break loose. Did you know that average discount on Black Friday is 23%? See our tips on how to make use of this holiday season to get the best price for a yacht booking.
1. Search outside the high tourist season
With peak season comes high demand – and even steeper prices. Every sea-loving sailor wants to get that perfect yacht on the sunniest day of summer. Think ahead of the crowds and search elsewhere to book a boat on a more affordable budget. According to Adventure-Life.com, the best time to take a Mediterranean cruise, for example, is in the spring (May-June) or fall (September-October), way off the scorching heat in July and August.
2. Make an early booking to get an exclusively low prepayment
Booking a yacht way ahead solves a lot of issues: you can resolve your travel and accomodations in advance, plan a more detailed itinerary and set up your vacation with minimum of stress. Another added benefit of early booking is low prepayment. Charter companies love it when you book in advance and are willing to considerably cut the first payment in order to be forthcoming to their sailors. Prepayments for next season can go as low as 15%!
3. Take advantage of deal of the day
Charter companies gain competetive advantage by offering various deals and discounts throught the season. Our diligent Boataround elves find the best discounts and highlight them as deals of the day. To spot them, keep your eyes peeled for orange rectangle directly on top of your search results.
