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.

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.
