Charter companies or charter broker
Many clients are mistaken with the difference in charter companies and charter brokers.
Charter brokers have combined all charter companies that are registered for charter worldwide and therefore have the largest fleet of the yachts available in particular country. Charter brokers receive commission from the charter companies which does not affect client's price in any way. Charter brokers offer many advantageous for booking as they are very knowledgeable about every single boat and can better offer service that client is requesting. Charter brokers have all the information necessary in order to book the right boat for charter and are not biased like charter companies (who of course are offering only their own boats whichever conditions they are in). This is very helpful to all the clients who are not familiar with the type of boat they would suit their needs, but rather have in mind a rough idea, which we are sure charter broker will help you in any possible way. Charter brokers are more familiar with the area they are chartering their boats as they probably had many returning clients who visited all the above mentioned and are far more familiar with the procedure you might need help in.
If you decide to contact a charter company, there are some factors you need to consider.
Croatia and other countries have many charter companies and they differ from 1-10 yachts in their fleet. It is not new that each year some companies' close and new ones open. You need to be very careful when paying to a company because they might disappear with the amount you had already paid for your charter and you will not receive the boat you booked. An established history is always a good thing to check when you are booking your boat.
On the contrary, charter brokers can handle most situations in more professional way. It is the same, whether they need to make any refund to the clients or to switch your group to another boat of the same type and make your holiday unforgettable.
Another thing that we need to point out is to the companies that are investing in the internet marketing. If a company advertises each month, that means that they offer good product with a good price and that their profit allows them to advertise, which is a very good indicator.
Finally, the staff of the company that you are in contact with sometimes makes a crucial significance. If booking managers are very helpful, knowledgeable about the area, offering additional services you know you are at the right place!
