Chartering a sailing yacht or motorboat is a unique way to spend your holiday. Renting a boat at the best price is even more fun. Below you will find selected last-minute offers and early-bird deals for the most popular ports in the Mediterranean. We have filtered the offers for a minimum discount of 20%.
Simply select a different date or port of departure for your charter holiday to filter for more last-minute discounts or seasonal best deals. There are also Early Booking Discounts for the next boat rental season. You can sort by price in ascending order. The best charter bargains are at the top of the list. Of course, there are not only great deals for boat rentals in Greece, Croatia or Italy but also special offers for chartering a sailboat in the Baltic Sea. In addition, charter fleet operators often give discounts and favourable charter prices for houseboat vacations. Just select Germany, Netherlands or France as destination.
Just as a hint: Usually, you can rent sailing yachts economically in the Netherlands, the German Baltic Sea or in Croatia. However, if you want to book areas like Greece, Italy or Mallorca, you have to reckon with charter prices that are 10 - 30 % higher. Nevertheless, it is worth comparing charter prices. Better start comparing already 8 - 5 months before your vacation. In popular areas such as Croatia, Greece and Mallorca cheap charter offers are always available. If you are already late, do not worry. You might find some last minute-deals. The last minute offers usually start 2 - 4 weeks before the charter begins. Good luck hunting for a cheap charter holiday!
What types of reduced price offers for yacht charter are there?A typical special deal is the last minute offer. You can get this for all boat models, i.e. for houseboat charter, motor or sailing yacht hire respectively catamaran rentals. If you are able to plan spontaneously and can be flexible with the dates and the type of yacht you would like to hire, you get to benefit from some great reduced price offers. Last minute offers for European sailing destinations are usually available from May on. You just need to be open regarding the choice of destination, the boat model and equipment. The more you are flexible with your dates, the more likely you can get a highly discounted rental price.
Towards the end of the yachting season prices get reduced due to the slightly cooler temperatures. For the Mediterranean countries this is the case around about the end of October. And there are some highly attractive early booking incentives for the following year that you might be interested in when planning your sailing holiday. You can benefit from early booking rates for the Mediterranean summer until end of January.
On certain holidays in the pre-season like Easter or Pentecost there may also be great special packages on offer. This is a good opportunity for you and your family to get a last minute deal for a charter during the school holidays. So don´t hesitate to contact us and enquire for one of those amazing deals!
If you are open to do a one-way sailing trip, we can select a good discounted one for you. Sometimes providers need to relocate a yacht from one port to another and rent the bareboat charter yacht to skippers at a reduced rate. There is also another form of classic one-way sailing or motor yacht charter: Often providers offer an especially attractive one-way itinerary – like for example Athens to Kos – at a higher price because it is very popular and the winds are favourable in this direction. Instead the opposite way, i.e. taking the boat back to Athens, gets priced much lower and if you are either an experienced sailor or interested in doing this route as a crewed / skippered yacht charter this may be your chance to get it at a great rate.
