Barcelona Yachts will make every effort, without any commercial commitment, to offer a similar or equivalent alternative to the Renter. If this is not possible, Renter will receive a full refund of the amounts, in the event that the cancellation takes place before payment of the Owner’s Price to the Owner, as per 7.3, without being able to hold Barcelona Yachts liable in this respect.
- Terms of payment of the Rental or Co-navigation

Payment of the Renter’s Price by the Renter is made in one lump sum.
In certain cases and subject to specific conditions of the Owner, the Renter may pay his reservation in two payments.

In case of cancellation due to the omission in the payment of the remaining balance the Renter will not receive a refund of the amount of the initial payment already made regardless of the cancellation conditions provided by the Private Owner in the Listing.
