more about covid protection
financial protection guarantee
While it's the last thing you want on your mind when booking a trip, you can rest assured that your holiday is completely safe with armada travel partners NUCO Travel who ensure every aspect of your holiday is financially protected.
what if the trip is cancelled due to covid?
If the trip is unable to go ahead due to COVID, then you would receive a full cash refund. No vouchers, no time limits, no claiming on insurance, just money straight into your bank account.
if i change my mind, what happens?
If the trip can go ahead but you change your mind, your deposit is non-refundable (simply because we have to pay suppliers). Where we can, we will transfer your booking to another trip or the following year but if this is not possible, your deposit is retained. Following balance payment deadline, normal cancellation terms apply unless as above, we have to cancel your trip due to COVID
if you cancel the trip because of covid, is there another option?
If we cancel your trip due to COVID, we will always try and offer you an alternative to move to rather than just cancel. We have our thinking caps on all the time

We have tried to answer all the questions we think you might have below, but if there is anything missing at all, just drop us an email here and we will respond to you asap as well as add your question to this list here to help everyone. Thanks in advance for your feedback!
what do i need to pay now?
Only £50 deposit to confirm your place. Full payment is due 8 weeks before travel
what's not included in the price?
Flights, transfers, your base fee (€80pp) and your spending money.
what is the base fee?
The base fee or mooring fee is €80 per person paid in cash at check in. This is used to pay mooring fees, fuel, end of stay cleaning and tourist tax. We will of course remind everyone of this at the time of booking and in pre-trip information.
where do we fly to?
For Greece: The closest airport to our base is Corfu Airport. Flights to Corfu are available from multiple airports throughout the summer. Croatia: The closest airport to our base is Split Airport. Flights to Split are available from multiple airports throughout the summer. You can also fly to Zadar or Dubrovnik, which means a longer transfer in Croatia, but prices can be cheaper.
what time should we arrive/ leave?
Arrival Saturday: Check in opens at our base from 2pm and will stay open until the last person arrives that evening to give you maximum flexibility when choosing your flights and managing your budget. Returning home: We return to base early afternoon on the Friday, so flights on Friday night are possible. However we can also stay on the boats until 9am Saturday morning, and most people choose to fly home on Saturday.
Transfers options are taxi, public bus or private transfer and all booking options will be detailed at the time of booking and will vary between 5 and 20 per person depending on your destination
how do i become an ambassador?

what are the boats like?
You can see our armada boats here.
But the basics you need to know:
They range in sizes from 6-10 There are 3 standards of boats you can book; classic, premium, Super Premium. If you are with a group of friends and you fill one of the boats available, this is your private home for the week (on water) If you are a smaller group of friends (who don't fill a boat), you will share with others
who do we share cabins with?
If you book on as a group of friends, you will be asked to allocate yourselves into cabins together before travel. Remember, you will need to be in even numbers to have the cabins all to yourselves. For example, if there are 5 of you, this will be 2 x double cabins and 1 x bed in a shared cabin
If you book on as part of a large group trip, you will be allocated into a double cabin with another booker. You will have the opportunity to request to share with someone through your group leader. The cabins are certainly cosy so be prepared to get to know each other!
i have never been sailing before, is this a problem?
No this is for EVERYONE! Whether you have been on the sea many times before or never set foot on a boat, you have your own qualified skipper for the week to look after you and your crew and you don't need to know anything about sailing. As long as you know how to relax, have fun, party island to island and have the best ever summer experience of your life, you are all good.
what events are there during the week?
This will be a week of many experiences. Have a look at the YOUR WEEK page to get an idea of what you can expect day and night. There will be everything from club nights in castles & off-shore floating stages to beach fire acoustics. It is going to be incredible
