How can I contact a yacht owner?
Are you interested in an owner's boat and would you like to receive more information on their listing?
Click & Boat provides its users with an internal messaging tool that allows you to ask questions to boat owners. However, you do not have access to their contact details at this stage.
Boat owners are notified by SMS and / or email after receiving a new message and reply to you as early as they can.
The more responsive to messages boat owners are, the higher their listings are displayed on the website. The platform also offers special visibility to "Super Owners", a status reserved exclusively for boat owners whose responsiveness, service quality, positive reviews and offered rental experience are exemplary.
Contact details (email address and phone number) for both the renter and the owner are accessible on your account after the booking request has been accepted and paid.
How does security deposit work?
On each listing, the owner indicated a security deposit to be withheld in case of damage.
In case of a rental from a private owner, the deposit is managed by Click & Boat, by card imprint, upon payment of your booking.
This does not constitute a transaction affecting your bank account and thus there is no charge during your booking.
If you have a minor incident during your rental, you can suggest to the owner to pay the full cost of necessary repairs, providing an estimatation of the amount or through an amicable agreement.
In case of damage and upon request of the owner, the deposit may be withheld and paid to the owner.
The owner then asks Click & Boat to open a claim file with a tracking number and an email informing the renter.
In any event, Click & Boat does not take part in the decision and will always ask the owner to provide documents supporting their request (rental contract, damage report, invoice, estimatation of the damage, photos etc.)
If you are having a dispute with an owner, please contact Click & Boat's Customer Service at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
One of our customer advisors will contact you shortly to clarify the situation.
In the case of a rental with a professional owner, the latter manages the security deposit and the terms of payment.
How can I pay for a booking?
To make a booking on Click&Boat and make a payment, you have 2 options:
- you can discuss with the owner via Click&Boat's internal messaging tool and when you have all the information you need, you can send a booking request to the boat owner by clicking "Book"
- you have picked one of the available boats. All you have to do is to indicate your preferred rental dates and then click "Book" on the listing.
You will be asked to provide your bank details and to indicate whether you wish to have insurance coverage (Weather Guarantee for one-day rentals) and insurance for assistance, repatriation and cancellation.
You will not be charged until the owner has accepted your booking request. If they reject your request, your card will not be charged.
Once the booking has been validated and paid, you will receive an email confirming your booking. The owner's details will be accessible via your Click & Boat account in order to arrange the details of the rental (meeting time for check-in at the harbour, passenger list, etc.)
Am I insured during a charter?
Boat owners undertake to rent out only boats that are insured, within the context of their Rental or Co-Sailing activities. To enjoy their rental experience without any problems, renters can get Assistance, Repatriation and Cancellation insurance online from our partner Mondial Assistance, covering all those involved in the rental. This option is recommended on the Click & Boat website when validating your booking. The details of Mondial Assistance's services and guarantees are available by clicking HERE. You also have the option of getting ""Damage Waiver"" insurance coverage from our partner Ouest Assurance. The damage waiver can be obtained until the day of your departure (1st day of the rental ) on the website of our partner Ouest Assurance. You can find more details about this guarantee and get this type of insurance coverage by clicking HERE
Our Customer Service can only be reached via email from December 23rd to January 3rd evening.

What are the cancellation policies?
Cancellation fees displayed on Click&Boat depend on the reason for cancellation and the cancellation conditions, as defined by the owner at the time of posting the relevant listing.
There are two types of cancellation:
- Cancellation for weather-related reasons
If a special weather report has been issued by the relevant authorities or if the owner himself/herself recognises that weather conditions are indeed unfavourable for a boat trip, the renter receives as a reimbursement the total amount of the booking, excluding Click & Boat's service fee.
The renter will also receive credit corresponding to the amount of Click & Boat' service fee, an amount that will be available on their account for one year.
In case the renter has signed up for the Weather Guarantee, they receive full reimbursement via the card used for payment, including Click & Boat's service fee.
- Cancellation for personal reasons
If the renter cancels a booking for personal reasons, the cancellation conditions of the owner apply according to the following order:
"Flexible": Refund, excluding Click & Boat's service fee, of the amount of the rental until 1 day before the beginning of the rental.
"Moderate": 70% refunded (excluding Click & Boat's service fee) up to 10 days before the beginning of the rental.
"Strict": 60% refunded (excluding Click & Boat's service fee) up to 30 days before the beginning of the rental.
"Strict *": special conditions of the professional owner as indicated in their contract. These conditions are specified on the listing.

For boaters who have signed up for Cancellation Insurance with Mondial Assistance when booking, the insurer (Mondial Assistance) reimburses the cancellation fee (ie the amount not refunded by Click&Boat) if the reason for your cancellation is included in the Guarantee.
It is possible to postpone your rental to avoid any cancellation fees. You must contact the owner and ask them if they accept to postpone the date of the rental.
