DayDreams holidays are operated by DayDreams Travel Limited which is referred to in the conditions as the ‘Company’. The travel arrangements sold are subject to the following conditions and in no way affect a client’s statutory or other rights as a consumer.


The contract made between the Company and the client shall arise on the acceptance by the Company of the booking form or charter contract and the client’s deposit at which time a written confirmation of booking will be issued which shall be governed by the laws of England. Any person completing a booking form or agreeing to travel arrangements on behalf of others warrants that he has full authority to sign on behalf of these others, and to bind these others to these conditions. Under the contract the client appoints the Company to be his agent. As the client’s agent the Company will do its best to make travel and other arrangements on behalf of the client with boat owners, hotel proprietors,and other persons whose services or goods the client may require. The responsibility and liability of the Company in relation to all travel arrangements are set out below.


To protect you, the client, DayDreams Travel Ltd has established a separate Clients Account with Barclays Bank plc under the control of an independent accountant: Mr Robert Mugford FCCA of Bray Accountants, Tiverton Devon EX16 6PE. Monies received from clients for the sea- and land-based elements of a holiday are held in the Clients Account until commencement of the holiday, except for the deposit required by a supplier to secure a boat charter. In the unlikely event of our insolvency, all clients’ monies due will be returned to them.


The client must pay a deposit of 50% on confirmation of land-based arrangements and services and private boat charter. A deposit of £400 per person must be paid on confirmation of cabins booked on gulet holidays as advised by the company. The balance to be paid eight weeks prior to departure.


Whilst the Company endeavours to arrange accommodation and services of a high standard it should be noted that standards of accommodation and service vary enormously in different parts of the world and the Company accepts no responsibility or liability for such variations in standards.


Any special request of the client must be advised to the Company in writing at the time of booking and the Company will use its reasonable endeavours to pass such requests on to the relevant boat owner, etc at whose discretion the service will be provided. The Company does not guarantee compliance with any special request and does not accept any liability for the non-provision of the same.


It is possible that some of the facilities referred to in the website may not be available for use during some or all of the holiday. If the client considers any particular facility to be vital to his requirements he must tell the Company of this at the time of booking whereafter the Company will endeavour to confirm that the facilities are available. The Company will advise the client as soon as possible if the facilities are not available. This will not amount to a significant change or an essential term but the client shall be entitled within 7 days from the date of the notice to cancel the holiday and receive a full refund of monies already paid but no further compensation or damages.


7a) The Company will make every effort to operate the holiday as agreed but reserves the right to alter or cancel the arrangements or holiday itself.

(ii) ) Obtain a full refund as soon as possible of all monies paid by him under the contract.


8a) The Company is a travel organiser and does not operate any airline, sightseeing Company, coach or other transportation company. Where coach and other components form part of the holiday the conditions of carriage of the carrier, or carriers concerned will apply. These conditions which may limit or exclude liability, will generally be available from such carrier or carriers.

8b) The Company is responsible to the client for the proper performance of the obligations under this contract and (except as set out in conditions 8c,8d,8e and 8f) will be liable to the client for any damage caused to him by failure to perform the contract or of any improper performance of the contract only (except in the case of personal injury), to the extent the client is unable to recover compensation for the same from any other person. No person who is not an authorised employee of the company is entitled to alter or cancel travel or accommodation arrangements, make or promise refunds, recommend local services, obtain or provide loans or extra services or incur any expenses on behalf of the Company without specific written authority.

8c) The Company is not liable for the cancellation of locally operated tours where the client has arranged such tour himself, irrespective of whether the tour was arranged directly with the operator or through a third party or local agent. The Company is not liable for any breach of contract between any such local tour operator and the client nor for any negligence of any such local tour operator or his employees.

8d) The Company will not be liable for any damage caused to the client by failure to perform the contract or by improper performance of the contract where they are attributable to:

(i) The client including cancellation by the Company pursuant to condition 7b(ii)

(ii) Cancellation by the Company pursuant to condition 7b(i)

8e) Where damage has arisen on the non performance or improper performance of services of the contract, any liability of the Company will be limited to the appropriate international convention which govern such services namely:

(i) The Warsaw convention on International Carriage by Air, as amended by the Hague Protocol 1955

8g) It is a requirement of this contract that the client arrange appropriate travel insurance for himself or herself and all members of his or her holiday group. Such insurance should include cover for the cost of cancellation by the client, the cost of assistance, including repatriation, in the event of accident or illness and cover against injuries incurred through water sports. The Company will not be liable for any damages or losses incurred in the event that the client or any member of his or her group does not take out appropriate insurance.

8h) The Company will not accept liability for losses or expenses incurred due to delay or changes in airline services, war, strikes or other causes.


If the client does not pay the balance of the private charter, cabin booking, or other holiday by eight weeks prior to departure, then the Company’s right to cancel the holiday pursuant to condition 7b(ii) shall be exercisable upon one week’s notice to the client. In this event or if the client cancels the arrangement after the booking is accepted, the deposit is forfeited. Additionally, if a cancellation occurs on a cabin booking and a general holiday, for either of the above reasons, within 60 days of departure, the following charges will be payable by the client, namely:

Between 60-30 days 50% of total holiday price, thereafter 100%.

On Private Charters the individual charter contract provides details.

After acceptance of the booking if the client alters the confirmed arrangements, an amendment fee of £50 per adult, together with any tax and other costs may be charged. Additionally if the alteration is within 45 days of the original departure dates, the above cancellation charges may be applied at the Company’s discretion.


Prices quoted for holidays are based on costs evaluated in pounds sterling. As external factors may affect fuel prices resulting in increased or decreased running costs of boats and other transport, the Company reserves the right, up to 30 days before the departure date, to alter the price of the holiday to take account of such variations. These additional charges will not, however, be applied within 30 days of the departure date.  The client agrees to pay the increased charges within 14 days of notification unless he shall withdraw from the contract pursuant to condition 7e. For this purpose time is of the essence and should the client fail to pay the increased charges, the Company may cancel the holiday pursuant to condition 7b (ii), and the provisions of condition 9 will apply to the charges payable and as to forfeit of the deposit.


For details of what the price covers for all private boat charters, land tours, tailor-made holidays and gulet holidays, the individual price lists, leaflets and/or quotations give all details. A separate Private Charter Contract provides details of each individual boat charter.


(a) The client is responsible for ensuring that all members of the group, if appropriate, have a valid passport, visas, vaccinations, travel insurance and health certificates which conform to all relevant health regulations. All costs arising out of failure to comply with any requirements in relation to the same are at the client’s expense and the Company accepts no responsibility for the client’s failure to comply with the same.

DayDreams Travel offers gulet holidays, both private charters and cabins only, on a diverse range of gulets from low budget to luxury and superior deluxe gulets, with numerous flexible itineraries along the Turkish coastline and Greek Dodecanese islands.

DayDreams Travel was founded by Jenny Day in 1987 following a corporate weekend to Istanbul for 100 clients from her London based PR consultancy. Using her expert organisational skills she went on to organise several  gulet charters. They were so successful the word spread and her dream of offering a special style of holiday to a wider audience become a reality.
