Frequently Asked Questions
Can I book more than one trip?
Of course! Each of our voyages is unique and there is no maximum stay on board. We actually recommend people to join us for at least 2 weeks to fully experience our programme and the different challenges on board.
To book several trips in the same booking add them one by one to the shopping cart and then proceed to the checkout.
Can I book for someone else?
Yes, that’s not a problem. You can also book several spots on the same trip for a group of people. The name in the booking is just for the invoice.
The booking confirmation includes a link to the form that has to be filled out by the people actually doing the trip. Just send it to them after booking.
How is the booking process? Is it safe? How do I pay?
To book a trip you just need to click on it and select “Add to cart”. This will get you to the checkout page where you can introduce your data and do the contribution towards the costs of the trip.
“Contribution” means that you’re not doing a payment for a service or purchasing a travel ticket. This has mostly only legal implications for us, it doesn’t make much of a difference for you.
The payment system that we use for credit and debit cards is called Redsys. This is the system chosen by our bank, it allows for secure encrypted payments and complies with all standards of data protection.
The other automated payment option that we offer is PayPal (also a secure and well-renowned provider). Bitcoin is also an alternative to pay for your trip, send us an email to learn how.
If you experience problems during the payment process send us an email we’ll allow you do a bank transfer.
What do I need to bring with me?
Nothing special, the same as any other outdoor adventure. On your booking confirmation email you’ll receive a welcome pack with a detailed list of what to bring.
What will my shipmates be like? Will they be much older/younger than me?
Diversity is one of the elements that make the experience on Atyla so special. Our trips welcome people from different countries, with different professions and different social backgrounds. These many different perspectives make the conversations on board very interesting and enriching.
The ages of the people on board normally span from 16 to 55 years of age, and it is very rare that there won’t be more people of your same age range in your trip.
In any case, we also use the generational diversity as a valuable tool, not only to make everyone feel integrated but also because is great to learn, work and make friends with people of ages different to yours.
These trips are cheaper than what I expected...
Yes, the participant experience is partially funded by our charity, because we want to make our trips affordable for more people. The real value of the experience is what the premium participants contribute.
If you can afford it, we recommend you to book as a premium participant (even if you want to participate fully). You’ll feel good about contributing a fair amount.
Why is the line on the map sometimes red and sometimes yellow?
A yellow line indicates that the trip goes to a maritime festival, where you can stay and enjoy it as a crewmember of Atyla. The red line is for “normal trips” where there is no festival.
What is a "private bunk bed"?
Atyla is not a cruise, so we don’t have small 2-person cabins. We have group cabins with bunk beds that host from 5 to 9 people.
To keep some sense of privacy, every bunk bed has a thick curtain that can be closed individually.
What if the trip I want is sold out?
We recommend you to find a different trip since normally our trips get sold out with confirmed reservations. If that doesn’t fit, you can also send us an email and we’ll let you know if there are any cancellations.
I can’t afford to pay, can I still join?
What happens if I need to cancel?
Please see here our Cancellation Policy.
Can someone help me arrive to the ship and/os come back afterwards?
Yes, there are agencies that can organise that for you. We can recommend Amaia Travel. They know our trips and are specialists in delivery trips to ships. They can find a nice connection for you and probably also a good price (and they, of course, speak English). Ask them!
What special measures are taken against Covid-19?
None. Coronavirus doesn’t exist, the real danger is the G5. Also, the earth is flat.
Sorry for the little joke, we couldn’t help it.
Yes, of course we’re going to take precautions against the propagation of Covid-19. The exact measurements will depend on the evolution of the number of cases, the scientific progress and the new governmental regulations from now until the moment when our trips start in 2021.
These are the measurements that are under consideration so far:
- Disinfectant available on board, both to regularly clean surfaces, and to keep good hand hygiene.
- Extra awareness of the distances kept between the people on board, and also with any external visitors.
- Compulsory testing before embarkation.
- Reduction of the number of participants and crew.
- Reduction or cancellation of public visits to the ship.
Hopefully, the pandemic will be more “under control” next year, and we won’t have to implement most of these measurements, but of course health and safety come always first. In any case, all participants will receive an email 2-3 weeks before the trip, with the exact measurements that will be implemented their voyage.
Finally, if any trip needs to be cancelled, it will be indicated on this page, and everyone with a booking will be informed per email and compensated according to our cancellation policy.
