We would like to advise you to review the information noted in our booking process regarding travel protection. Please do your due diligence and check with your credit card company to understand their travel protection terms. If you’ve purchased travel protection when you booked your charter, you may want to familiarize yourself with their policies as well. Please remember that we manage all of these vessels on behalf of individual owners who are also facing the same issues as the rest of us, so we are required to honor their contracts also.
