Once I book a charter, how do I pay?

We accept payments by money transfer and PayPal. Prior to payment, we will give you a full invoice that clearly shows the payments due in the currency of your charter. We need to ultimately pay the supplier in the local currency, but we can accept payment in your preferred currency and manage the transfer and currency exchange for you. In this case we will charge you a “buy price” that is between 3-5% (depending on the currency) above the spot rate you can see on any financial web site. This relates to what we in turn get charged to exchange your money – even the largest banks in the world have to pay above the spot price when they exchange currencies.

If you pay by credit card, we do have to charge you a small fee to process these cards, as we are charged the same fee by our credit card facility. We are constantly negotiating to reduce these fees, but at this time this is what we’re charged – we do not make any money on these fees.
