DayDreams gulet charter services are tailor made to suit individual clients, providing flexibility across all arrangements. For example, clients travelling from the USA, Australia or South Africa would make their own flight arrangements, but might require full board, boat charter and a tailor made tour on land. British based clients might want information in booking flights, flexible arrangements on their menu, but no land arrangements. There are many other variables.


As we have a large number of gulets to choose from, we have produced the table below as a guide to the cost of weekly boat rentals for standard, luxury and deluxe gulets. These rates are in GBpounds and subject to fluctuations in currency exchange rates.  We will provide a fixed rental in GB pounds for a specific boat if dates can be agreed at the time of quotation.  For detailed GBP quotations on individual gulets email

The balance, including any additional charges, will be due eight weeks prior to the departure date.

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 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.


Flights are not included in any of our prices.  We can advise on appropriate flights to fit your itinerary.  Those clients based in the UK can have their flights arranged through an IATA/ABTA agency, Diplomat Travel Ltd, who are fully bonded by the Civil Aviation Authority under Atol 1355.  Details of schedulded and charter flights with airlines such as British Airwasy, Easyjet, Jet 2, Thomson who fly from regional UK airports direct to Bodrum and Dalaman in Turkey will be advised at the time of booking.


Provisions are not included in the prices quoted for boat rental. We will organise supplies in advance of your arrival having liaised with you over your preferred menu/drinks list ensuring that the catering is tailored to suit your individual requirements. A fully itemised shopping list will be provided and payment will be due upon arrival at the boat. Alternatively you may prefer to opt for our full board option which covers breakfast, lunch, 5 o'clock tea and biscuits and dinner. For a group of 9-12 people you should budget around £33 - £35 per person per day.  This will also cover the cost of food for the crew who usually eat the same menu.

All meals are cooked on board by the onboard cook/chef unless, of course, guests wish to sample the cuisine offered by local restaurants. Meals are based on fresh local vegetables, fish, meat, cheese, fruit and yoghurt. Vegetarian and special dietary dishes are available on request. The style of cooking is based on Turkish Mediterranean home cooking with an emphasis on fresh local produce.






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.


"I recreated our favourite family holiday to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday and all the family joined us for a week.  Everyone, aged 11 to 70, had a fabulous time. There was enough space for moments of quiet but mainly we partied!  The boat was beautiful, the crew were all charming, the food was delicious and the sun shone. Perfect!  Luckily I have a big birthday next year!"  Kate Warnock-Smith and family travelled on Kaya Guneri 3 in August 2016

“It was wonderful to return after so many years to Cevri Hasan V with Captain Taner leading us to ever more beautiful places in Turkey. Thank you.“ Carlyn & Laurie Hunter travelled in September 2014
