Agencies are not some kind of rip off as some tend to believe nowadays. You have to know that when you send us an inquiry, there are always at least SEVERAL DIFFERENT DEALS we can provide you with. It’s also important to state that we are not the owners of gulets so we do not care which gulet you will end up booking, as long as we know the gulet owner will give great services and you are getting the best deal through our agency.
What does this mean for you? It means we have 5 or 10 gulets which potentially could be the right match for you. All of these gulets could give you amazing experience, but in order to get a booking, I have to think what’s best for YOU.
What happens once you get offers?
You check the offers and the information and if you have any questions ask as many as you can! If you start asking question once you are already on a gulet then, it is usually too late!
Also, if it happens that you are not content with the offers, let us know! Communication is important and there are always alternatives. We won’t be happy until you are happy!
