The advantages of renting a yacht in autumn
- Savings on rent
The weather and water are still warm, and most of the tourists have already left. When demand falls, the cost of renting a yacht is 1.5 to 2 times lower than in high season. And if you book for six months, you can save up to 30% of the cost.
The weekly price for using a sailing yacht in the Canary Islands with 3 cabins in November is €2,000. Captain's services will cost another €100 per day. When renting a yacht, you will need to leave a deposit of €1000, this amount will be returned later.
- Lack of queues in ports
In high season, crowds of tourists can cause irritation, adding clutter to your measured sea vacation. Even restaurants are often all crowded, not to mention interesting places. But in the autumn, the best table in the best restaurant will always be at your service!
- The presence of wind
Autumn is a bit more complicated for traveling: the winds are stronger at this time. But this will be a nice bonus for all speed lovers. Only the wind, the sea and the sky, and not the entire summer flotilla will be around you.
