  • Does my insurance cover any damages resulting from Jet Ski'ing at Chichi Jetski Tours ?
    Although most damages can be covered by the group's security deposited amount, some damages can go beyond the value of 7000 Euro per Jetski. To the best of our knowlegde, most travel or liability insurances in the Netherlands do not cover any damages caused by Jet Ski'ing. This means that Dutch guests will have to pay for any damages out of own their own pocket. We don't have any information on travel insurance or liability insurance coverage for other countries. Please check your insurance coverage prior to making a reservation with us.
  • Does Chichi Jetski Tours offer pick-up /drop off services ?
    As we are still a small company, we do not offer pickup services. We can recommend a number of taxi companies that we work with often (we know which taxies are puntual, quick and cost efficient). When making your reservation, please add a note to the booking to indicate that you would like our help to connect you to a great taxi company. We will link you up and thank you for supporting the local economy.

    The security deposit is 300 Euro / 600 Guilders / $ 340 for each Jet Ski. Security deposits help cover problems or accidents that occur during a reservation, like damages or not following the guide's rules. At time of check-in, an authorization hold will be secured on the credit or debit card provided. These funds will not be available for your use. The authorization hold will be released when the equipment is returned in the same condition as you received it and when all rules were followed. The time it takes to release this additional authorization depends on your bank and is beyond the control of Chichi Jetski Tours. The average transaction reversal on creditcards is immediate and some creditcard release the amount within 3 to 5 business days . The deposit is 300 Euro / 600 Guilders / 340 Dollars for each rented Jet Ski to be paid on the day of the tour (During check-in prior to departure). If you use a credit card for the deposit, we will charge the credit card (we will not make a reservation, but a charge). The deposit will be returned to you immediately on completion of the tour (in case rules have been followed and in case of no damages). When the deposit will be returned, it will be returned in the same way that it was paid. In the case that you used a credit card for the deposit, we will cancel/void the transaction which will return the deposit to your credit card. Some creditcard companies (such as Rabobank) may take up to 5 working days to fully process the cancellation, so your spending limit would be affected during the time that the bank will take to remove the reservation.

Jetski Tours provides private tours only. I agree that my private group will be considered one entity by Chichi Jetski Tours. In case Chichi Jetski Tours identifies a new damage, I authorize Chichi Jetski to charge me the deposit that was provided by all group members. This would be irrespective of which member of my group is believed to be responsible for the damage. This includes damages that were caused by unfortunate mistake such as turning the Jet Ski upside down. I also authorize the full deposit of my group to be charged when rules are violated or when instructions from the guide are not followed (by any member in my group). I am aware that the total cost to repair certain damages can be higher than the amount that was provided as a deposit by my private group (some large damages can exceed 7000 euro per Jet Ski). I agree to pay, immediately after the Activity, for the estimated excess cost to repair the damages. If at a later date, Chichi Jetski Tours determines that the actual cost to repair the damage is higher than initially estimated (and sufficient evidence is provided of the unforeseen extra costs) , I will authorize Chichi Jetski Tours to charge me for these additional costs. I agree to pay for the damage that I (or any member in my group) caused to Chichi Jetski Tours or any third party. I will not raise any disputes. Please also check the FAQ on insurance coverage.
