A yacht charter is undeniably one of the safest ways to holiday, and end-to-end private travel takes safety one step further. The Ocean Independence yacht charter team are currently working very closely with the company’s private aviation department to offer a range of transportation options that ensure comfort and safety from door to door.
Nick Dean, Managing Partner of Ocean Independence, says: “At Ocean Independence the safety of our owners, guests and crew is paramount. Very early on in this pandemic we realised that offering a complete, door to door service was the only way to ensure this safety.”
When travelling by land, a private chauffeured vehicle is one of the safest and most luxurious options. A professional driver will pick up the guests right from their front door in a fully sanitised luxury car and transport them to their next destination, be it a private jet or directly to a yacht. Whether the guests are travelling alone or in a large group, the Ocean Independence network of luxury car providers can accommodate all transport needs with a range of vehicle options – from luxury cars, to limos, vans and more.
If a flight is necessary to reach the destination, the Ocean Independence private aviation team can source a private jet specifically tailored to the guests’ precise requirements – from turbo props to VIP configured airliners and everything in between. Dedicated to providing 7-star service in the skies, a professional flight crew will be trained in the latest health and safety protocols. To avoid the crowds and inconvenience of being stuck in traffic, a range of helicopter options are also available globally with varying passenger and luggage capacities.
Once the guests reach their destination, they will be boarded on their chartered yacht, where the fun and relaxation can begin. Rest assured that all necessary health protocols will be in place to ensure guest safety and comply with local requirements.
Once the holiday comes to an end, the private travel options once again guarantee a safe return journey home.
With yacht charter once again possible as lockdown restrictions are lifted, these end-to-end packages are proving popular for future travel with Ocean Independence, as they assure that clients can relax in safety. Nick Dean states, “In over 40 years in this industry we have never faced the challenges in the yachting market as we do now. We have managed to weather the storm with the majority of early summer charter bookings being postponed to either later this year or 2021. Perhaps the bigger challenge will be to have sufficient tonnage available next summer when deferred bookings from 2020 will be filling up the calendar!”
