Charter Boat Booker Cancellation Policy
We here at Charter Boat Booker understand that life happens and cancellations are sometimes a necessity. In those instances we ask that you kindly refer to the individual policies held by the captain of the charter in which you originally entered into agreement with and originally booked through Charter Boat Booker. You may find this information regarding cancellation policies of charters booked in the listing through which you booked your charter. It is here that you will find the specifications deemed necessary and procedure to properly cancel a booked Charter by the individual Captain in which your specific Charter was booked.
Charter Boat Booker stands behind the individual cancellation policies put in place by our captains and asks that you communicate directly with your captain regarding any cancellations you may need. Communication between parties is conveniently located through our own private messaging platform for private conversations on Charter Boat Booker. Any discussions regarding cancellations from either party should take place using this messaging system from Charter Boat Booker. If your booking cancellation falls within the scope of the cancellation policy put forth by the charter you are cancelling, you will receive a full or partial refund dependent of the specific policy being used for your specific booked charter. Determination of proper cancellations will be decided by Captains and backed by Charter Boat Booker.
Charter Boat Booker is solely responsible for security deposit payments paid to Charter Boat Booker and therefore Charter Boat Booker under no instance has, had, or will have collected any full payments for Charters booked through Charter Boat Booker and therefore will not under any circumstances be held accountable for making or refunding of any payments to any individual, group or company.
In the event that a cancellation occurs, any deposit held by Charter Boat Booker will be returned.
*If the angler (or customer) cancels a trip for any reason outside the perimeter of the captains cancellation policy, the deposit will be returned to the captain (or Charter owner). The Captain’s cancellation policy has been set by the individual captain during the listing process and can be viewed in that specific Captain’s listing on Charter Boat Booker.
*If the captain of any charter listed and booked through Charter Boat Booker cancels a trip for any reason outside the perimeters of their own cancellation policy, the deposit will be returned to the angler (or customer) to whom the Charter being canceled was booked.
Charter Boat Booker is solely responsible for backing each captain’s cancellation policy and refunding the appropriate party in regards to the security deposit alone.
48 Hour Booking Confirmation Policy
Our captains take bookings from multiple sources including, but not limited to, personal websites, marina websites, other charter websites, and booking agents. This leads to charters having multiple booking calendars that are not connected to each other. This can lead to situations where multiple people book the same charter for the same date and time through different sources.
Captains try very hard to keep their availability updated in all locations but due to the nature of the business it can not always be done immediately. If a captain receives a new booking during the day, when they are out to sea fishing, they do not always have a reliable internet connection. Also, they are busy ensuring their customers are having an incredible experience, the same way they will for you when you are on their charter. For this reason most captains update their availability when they return from fishing for the day.
In situations like this where bookings have overlapped, most captains will honor the booking that came in first and try to reschedule any other bookings. If your booking can not be rescheduled for a time that will work for you, rest assured, you will receive a refund of any deposits paid.
Your captain will contact you as soon as possible to confirm your booking. They may do this by contacting you at either the email address or phone number you provided at the time of booking. Please allow up to 48 hours to receive your confirmation. Once your trip has been confirmed you can be 100% confident your booking has been secured.
