Once FY7 Charter UK receives your enquiry, we will check availability and contact you to confirm your voyage.
Your booking is not secured until we contact you to confirm and a 20% deposit has been received. Please do not book any
travel arrangements until you have received confirmation of your voyage booking.
Payments can be made by credit card, cheque, bank transfer or cash. (Please note there is a 3% charge for credit card payments).
The balance of the voyage fee is due 8 weeks before the voyage starts. If a booking is made less than 8 weeks before
the start of the voyage then full payment will be taken at that time.
