Frequently Asked Questions
How can I register my boat?
To register one or more boats, from the Home of the website www.flegreacharter.it by clicking on “Register boat” the registration phase will begin and once completed, the control will be carried out and submitted for approval by the platform.
When registering the boat, you will need to fill in all the mandatory fields and follow the registration phase step by step; once completed, you will have your account from which you can change your availability, price, discounts and additional extras at any time.
Can any type of boat be registered?
For professional owners (rental / leasing companies) any type of boat can be registered; for private owners who use the occasional rental contract (Article 49bis CND), only boats registered with the ATCN and therefore provided with a safety certificate and registration plate. You will be able to rent your boat in complete safety and legally.
Private owners in possession of a boat, therefore, will not be able, according to current regulations, to carry out any type of rental and therefore it is not allowed to register them on the platform.
What rental price can I enter?
The rental price is at the owner’s discretion and will be entered during registration according to the period. The price can be changed over time and there is the possibility of discounting the rental of the boat for a particular period. However, it is required to enter your rental price as per the price list already applied.
What should I do if a customer books my boat?
As the owner, you will have 24 hours to confirm or decline the booking. Once you have accepted the reservation for the established date, the customer will have your contacts and vice versa.
How does it work for payment?
The customer will pay the rental price and any extras provided by the owner directly through the platform. Once the rental has been made, as per T&C, the balance of the rental will be paid excluding the platform fees.
Can I cancel a reservation that I have accepted?
Once a reservation has been accepted, the owner cannot cancel, except in exceptional cases as per T&C.
How can I use the services made available to the owner?
Flegrea Charter will always try to add important collaborations regarding the “health” of boats. A discount on these services can mean savings in ordinary or extraordinary management and maintenance costs and, therefore, additional earnings at the end of the year.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I book a boat?
To be able to book a boat, simply enter the date and port of embarkation and choose, from the boats offered, the one that best meets your needs. Once the boat has been booked, the owner will have 24 hours to accept or reject the request and, only after acceptance, will you pay for the rental and any additional extras you have chosen.
What does it mean to rent a boat?
Renting a boat means having the boat available, including the crew. You will then be accompanied by a professional skipper / captain for your rental. In case you want a boat without a skipper / Captain (Lease), you will be the one to steer the boat and therefore those responsible. A boat license is required for boats over 40hp.

Is cancellation required? What should I do in case of bad weather?
Upon acceptance by the owner, cancellation is provided according to the cancellation terms described in the T&C. Some extraordinary cases are also taken into consideration in them.
Regarding a weather cancellation, if the adverse marine weather conditions do not allow you to navigate safely and the Owner confirms the cancellation, you can cancel the rental or the lease up to one day before the start.
Proceed by accessing the “My reservations” page, click on “Cancel the reservation” and select “Weather cause” as the reason.

In the event that you have signed the Weather Guarantee or other wording of the Company at the time of booking, you will get a full refund, including the Flegrea Charter service costs, which will be credited to the card used for payment. You also have the possibility to agree with the Owner and postpone the date of your booking.
