What factors can affect the daily charter rate?

The daily charter rate can be influenced by several factors including the type of vessel or aircraft, the season, the charter’s location, and any additional amenities or services requested.

Are there any additional costs that might not be included in the initial charter cost calculation?

Yes, additional costs may include fuel surcharges, docking fees, crew gratuities, and any special requests such as catering or on-board entertainment. It’s important to discuss all potential costs with the charter company beforehand.

Can the length of the charter be adjusted after the initial booking?

Adjusting the length of the charter may be possible but is subject to the charter company’s policies and availability. It may also result in a change in the total charter cost.

How far in advance should I book a charter?

Booking well in advance is recommended, especially during peak seasons, to ensure availability and potentially secure better rates. However, some companies may offer last-minute deals on unsold inventory.
