GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE
ACCEPTANCE OF THE GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE
The General Terms and Conditions of Use constitute an integral part of the agreement between the Lessee and BOLA BOAT RENTAL SIFNOS. They supersede any prior agreement and include all of its rights and obligations.
It is considered that Lessees have fully and unreservedly accepted these terms and conditions by selecting the field "I accept the terms and conditions" during the creation of a user account or registration for an offer through the website bolaboatrental.com
BOLA BOAT RENTAL SIFNOS reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions at any time. The modified terms become effective upon posting them on the website, which Lessees are required to visit regularly to stay updated.
A 40% deposit of the total rental price is required to confirm your boat rental. The remaining 60% is due upon delivery of the boat. A refundable security deposit of €400 is required.
a) If weather conditions do not allow for a trip by boat, an alternative date will be offered. If this second date is not suitable for you, we will refund your deposit.
b) The security deposit can be paid at the time of booking, either in cash or by credit card.
c) Upon delivery of the boat and all equipment at the port of origin, in the same condition as you received it, the security deposit, minus the cost of fuel consumed, and any applicable late fees, will be refunded.
MANDATORY EXTRA CHARGES
The charge for fuel consumption will be based on the per liter price, according to the rental agreement, upon delivery of the vessel, and will be deducted from the security deposit upon your return.
The minimum age for children allowed on the boat is 3 years old. Children under 12 years old must wear life jackets on the boat.
The renter returns the boat to the provided docking area at the base port, exempt from bedding and in the same condition in which it was received. In case the renter does not return the boat accordingly, the renter will be charged for the transport of the boat to the port of origin and any related expenses.
These charges/expenses will be deducted from the deposit. The cost of replacing lost or damaged objects/accessories such as anchors, mattresses, tents, refrigerators, etc., will be deducted directly from the deposit.
When the value of lost or damaged objects exceeds the amount of the deposit, we will issue an invoice with payment terms of 7 days.
The renter is responsible for all damages (excluding normal wear and tear) caused to the boat during the rental period. BOLA BOAT RENTAL SIFNOS may withhold part or all of the deposit, as needed, to cover the cost of repairs. In the event that these expenses exceed the amount of the deposit, BOLA BOAT RENTAL SIFNOS will charge the renter the full amount of the deposit, including reasonable collection and legal expenses, as applicable.
If the lessee returns the boat to the dock more than 30 minutes after the conventionally agreed time, the lessee loses 50% of the deposit.

The lessor has the right to determine whether a behavior is improper or unsafe.
If the rental is canceled due to improper or unsafe use, the deposit is forfeited.
