Traveller’s Tips

Passport/Visa Requirements
Passports must be valid for at least three months beyond length of stay required by all nationals with the exception of nationals of EU countries with valid national photo ID cards. Visas are not required by British, Australian, Canadian, USA and other EU residents for stays of up to 90 days. Other nationals are advised to contact their embassy to check visa requirement. All nationals must produce evidence of return/onward travel and evidence of sufficient funds for the duration of stay.

Currency
The national currency in Greece is Euro. There are numerous ATM’s where you can withdraw Euros with your cards. Foreign currency can be exchanged at all banks, savings banks and bureau de change. American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard, Visa and other major credit cards are widely accepted.

 

 

Skipper Qualifications
To charter a sailing yacht in Greece it is necessary to have sailing certificates proving your competence. The Port Authorities in Greece require an RYA Day Skipper with VHF qualifications as a sufficient license. International equivalents are also accepted from the majority of countries in Europe, as well as Australia, New Zealand, South Africa etc. Your original certificate should be taken with you and presented upon check in.

Travel Insurance
We strongly advise you to purchase suitable travel insurance before your departure, including cancellation insurance to protect your booking deposit. When you book your holiday through Adriatic Holidays you are comprehensively insured on the yacht you are chartering, and are not liable for any damage beyond the value of the security deposit.

NEWS AND EVENTS

Introducing High Point Yachting

Introducing High Point Yachting

Adriatic Holidays is 17 this year. I have had a fantastic time running the business over these years and I have accumulated a great deal of knowledge and understanding. The company has grown in experience with me and, with a strong business throughout the Mediterranean and in the Caribbean, I feel that it has outgrown its name. I am therefore taking this opportunity to rebrand this business as High Point Yachting. I am enjoying it now more than ever, and look forward with great confidence to its continuing success.
