In order to be able to send a Stopover Request, the Boater hereby accepts that the NavilyApp requests the information necessary to process his/her request by the marina.

Any Boater looking to access the online reservation service must provide the NavilyApp with a payment method, otherwise he/she won’t be able to access the online reservation service nor the Payment Service.

The Boater is hereby informed of the possible restrictions with regard to dates or duration applied by the Marina prior to submitting his/her Stopover Request.

A Stopover Request may be submitted to a Marina up until 17:00 on the requested date of arrival.

For requests of less than 16 nights, the marina has 7 days to accept the request as is. Upon expiry of this period, the Marina shall send a new offer that the user shall have to accept on the NavilyApp in order to confirm the reservation.

For all requests of 16 nights or more, the marina must send an offer to the Boater. The reservation is confirmed as soon as the Boater accepts the marina’s offer on the NavilyApp
