Local currency – Kuna (HRK). You can exchange money at the departure airport, but the exchange rate is often better once you are in Croatia. Visa and Mastercard are accepted in larger restaurants, marinas, supermarkets and at the base, however, it is advisable to have cash as many places are still unable to accept credit card payments.

Please note: bases are unable to accept cash or personal cheques, and cannot give cash back on credit or debit (Switch/Delta) cards.
This base cannot accept cash, American Express or Diners Club. Visa and Master Card are accepted..

Tipping in Croatia is becoming more commonplace, especially in higher end restaurants. In the past, tipping was welcome but not expected, however today 10% - 15% is considered polite.

If you have Sunsail crew on board your boat, tipping is at your discretion, 15-20% of the crew fee is considered standard.

Security deposit
A security deposit must be paid at the base by Visa or Master Card and is refundable at the end of your charter subject to there being no loss or damage. To significantly decrease your security deposit, purchase our Yacht Damage Waiver insurance ahead of time.

What's on board

All Sunsail Catamarans are equipped with cool boxes. Only one cooler available per boat.

Mobile phones
Check with your service provider for information about mobile coverage in this region. There are companies such as Cellular Abroad who offer international phone rentals if you are not a resident of the country. Using your own mobile phone in conjunction with a prepaid SIM card is also very popular and convenient. All Sunsail yachts have WiFi Internet options on board, so please ask at the reception for more details.

While most of our newer boats have Bluetooth capability, we cannot guarantee all boats are outfitted with this equipment. For your convenience, we highly recommend you bring an AUX line so you can listen to music from your mobile devices.

The standard voltage on all yachts is 12 volts, and 220V sockets are 2-pin European style. There are also plenty of USB sockets throughout the yachts' interior. The base also provides adapters , however it is also good to have your own if you need multiple. All our catamarans have a generator, so 220VAC is available while plugged into shore power, and while he generater is running.
