Frequently asked questions

Why are the charter packages no longer to be found?


Pantaenius no longer offers the previous packages. You can now put together your own charter package tailored to your needs. This allows you to take out only the cover you need for the trip you are planning.

You only want to insure the deposit, but you also want to take out overseas travel health insurance? This was not possible in the past, but it is now possible.
You already have an annual policy for skipper's liability insurance? You do not need to take out this cover again.

What deadlines must be observed when booking charter insurance?


The deposit, skipper's liability, foreign travel health and accident insurance can be taken out or added at any time up to the contractual start of the charter trip.

The travel cancellation insurance can be taken out until the takeover of the boat if your charter contract was concluded within the last 21 days before the start of the charter.

In addition, travel cancellation insurance can always be taken out up to 30 days before the start of the charter.

Who can take out / not take out the insurance contract?


Charter insurance can only be taken out by an association (no commercial use) and by natural persons who have their permanent residence in the European Union, Switzerland, Norway or Iceland. Persons with Italian residence can only take out insurance in Italian through Pantaenius GmbH in Monaco. Since Brexit, persons with permanent residence in the United Kingdom (UK) can unfortunately no longer take out charter insurance, but can be an insured person.

If you would like to take out a policy for an association, please contact us. Charter companies, charter agencies and commercial skippers cannot take out charter insurance in principle.

Our crew is not yet complete. Can we still take out our charter insurance already?


Yes, all additions, changes and deletions to the crew can be made online in your LOGIN as soon as they become known, but no later than one day before departure, and the crew list can thus be updated.

What amount should we insure for travel cancellation insurance?


Add to the price for the charter (without running costs such as fuel, food, board cash etc.) the arrival and departure costs for each person to be insured.
Please add to this amount the costs for the overnight stays booked before or after the charter (hotel, holiday flat, etc.), should you also wish to insure these cancellation costs.
