Details on the certificates
An expert agent will have detailed information about various sailing areas, from first-hand experience or from native partners. They will be informed about legal backgrounds, insurance issues and administrative details to easily navigate the booking procedure.
A great agent will personally know the people; booking manager, base staff, will have visited the charter base, checked the boats for maintenance and equipment. Agents who try to be the best at what they do will invest in research and networking in order to provide the best service for the customer.
An agent’s sole purpose is to have a wide area of expertise and knowledge, to guide and protect the customer along the search and booking process.
With the growing number of fleet operators, it is hard to keep up with the news, but at the International Charter Expo, 180 worldwide fleet operators meet with over 200 agencies (charter brokers, travel agents, tour-operators).
ICE values the investment by these companies
