You will need a visa to enter Sri Lanka, which is the Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). This tourist visa is normally issued for a maximum period of 30 days. It is possible to obtain one on arrival although we recommend that you get it before you travel, as you will face delays if you arrive without one.
There are many sites online offering the ETA, but often these are fraudulent so we advise that you go through a reputable source such as the Sri Lankan embassy website or the foreign office/department of your country.
The local currency in Sri Lanka is the Sri Lankan Rupee, which is different to that of the Indian Rupee. Mid 2016, 1 € = around 150 Rs, and 100 Rs = 0.70€.
You can change your money in banks in most of the main towns. Make sure the bank notes are clean and in a good condition. There are plenty of ATMs in Colombo and Kandy, at seaside towns and tourist spots. Make sure to check that they take your debit or credit card as some do not accept Visa for example. However there will of course be a commission added onto each transaction which you make.
To confirm your booking you should inform your GlobeSailor advisor who will put an option (hold) on the cabin for a certain time until we receive your down payment.
The booking will only be considered final once we have received your down payment (by bank transfer, Paypal or credit card) which is 50% of the total amount. A 100% down payment is required for any booking made less than one month before departure.
The balance should be paid no later than one month before boarding, either to the base or to GlobeSailor. Mandatory extras and options will be payable locally. Be sure to check with your advisor or the base prior to departure.
After you have made your booking the base manager will contact you to give you more information on your cruise. Make sure you confirm what time you will be arriving and also your flight details. A taxi or minibus will meet you at the airport and bring you directly to the boat.
All the skippers which we offer are qualified, have the necessary professional licenses and speak fluent English. If you have any particular demands regarding a skipper make sure to let us know.
The skipper is in charge of navigation and your safety on board. Feel free to try out some of the manoeuvres with him; he will be happy to teach you the basics of sailing.
Regarding sleeping arrangements, the skipper will sleep on board, either in a cabin or in the common area (saloon).
The skipper is not in charge of cooking or washing up. A hostess (or cook) will prepare your meals, clean the saloon area and the cabins and make sure the boat is kept tidy.
If you wish to make a cancellation, you should contact your GlobeSailor advisor as soon as possible. Whatever the circumstances, you will be charged the following cancellation fees, depending on when the cancellation is made: up to 90 days before departure = 25%; 89 to 60 days before departure = 50%; 59 to 30 days before departure = 75%; 29 days or less before departure = 100% of the total cost of your booking. We recommend that you sign up for cancellation insurance with your personal insurance provider.
