Danger of confusion! – Not everywhere that says YACHT-POOL on it is also YACHT-POOL in it!

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear skippers,

A few days ago you may have received an offer from a well-known charter company for charter bookings with an included cancellation insurance with the product name “Safe & risk-free PLUS”. The name is ours
“Charter Cancellation Insurance PLUS”, which covers the insolvency risk of the charter company, among other things,
and our logo “
CHECKED & TRUSTED
” is prominently displayed in the sender of this mail without any consultation with us. This has already led to many misunderstandings, irritations and corresponding customer inquiries.

We are therefore forced to make this statement and must emphatically clarify that this cancellation insurance has nothing to do with the “Charter Cancellation Insurance PLUS” that we have developed. Our“CHECKED & TRUSTED” quality seal is therefore not associated with this product.

We would have liked to explain the difference between this product and our Charter Cancellation Insurance PLUS in more detail. Unfortunately, the specific content of the conditions of the insurance offered is unknown and cannot be found on the charter company’s website, as essential legal obligations to inform customers are not fulfilled. (Status at the time of writing)

Therefore, please be particularly careful – especially whenever an insurance policy is advertised as “free” and “risk-free”.

The insolvency risk, which is insured by YACHT-POOL’sCharter Cancellation Insurance PLUS” for companies with appropriate creditworthiness that have been checked by us, is covered by the insurance in accordance with the prospectus in all cases. not covered. However, given the current conditions on the charter market, we believe it makes sense to hedge this risk in particular.

We would therefore like to give you a brief overview of the tried and tested charter cancellation insurance policies offered by YACHT-POOL.
