Please note any applicable port fees, taxes and mandatory charter flight / transfer packages are not commissionable.

Please note on some exceptional special offers we may apply a different commission rate for that package, but will always do our best to detail this in our communication and bring it to your attention at time of your enquiry.

Private Expedition Yacht Charters

Polar Routes will split any commission earned from private yacht charters 50/50 with agents, but please note the commission amounts vary depending on the vessel, and can be as little as 6% of the charter fee.

However, with charter fees ranging from £160,000 - £800,000 per week, this should still be a very lucrative booking all round! For any further queries on this please speak to a Polar Routes Travel Specialist.
