The fee to participate as a deckhand on the Swedish ship Götheborg is split in two payments.
1. Sign up fee
2. End payment
In connection with the admission notification The Swedish East India Company takes out the first part of the payment (here called ‘‘sign up fee’’). The sign up fee is 20 % of the sailing legs total amount and shall be paid to The Swedish East India Company within 7 days after receiving the admission e-mail. When paying the sign up fee the deckhand is guaranteed his/her offered position and obliges to pay the next part in accordance with the agreement. Please note that the signing up fee is non refundable!
As soon as the sign up fee is paid, the deckhand is asked to pay the additional 80 % of the amount (‘‘end payment’’). This payment shall be made to The Swedish East India Company within 30 days, but at the latest 20 days before signing on the ship. If the deckhand does not pay the amount for the voyage according to the agreement, the Swedish East India Company has the right to cancel the agreement and keep the sign up fee.
For the sailing legs that are free of charge (voluntary legs) no sign up fee is needed to confirm your place aboard, but the volunteer has to confirm the offered position. This is done by sending a confirmation e-mail to the head of recruiting (email@example.com) within seven days of the admission notification. If the volunteer has been offered a spot on more then one leg, one email with the information about which legs that he/she wants to be confirmed is enough. No answer or too late a confirmation means that the position is lost.
When cancelling earlier then 60 days before the sailing leg in question the whole amount of the end payment is refunded. When cancelling later then 60 days but earlier then 20 days before the sign on date 50 % of the end payment is refunded. When cancelling later then 20 days before signing on the Swedish East India Company has the right to keep the whole amount. The cancellation rules are valid in case of death, urgent illness or an accident that occurs to the deckhand himself/herself, his/her partner, children, parents, sisters or brothers.
On cancellation a doctor’s certificate from a non-biased doctor should always be attached.
For cancellation, please contact Kajsa Hakefjord at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The following parts are for transports and sleepovers arranged by the Swedish East India
Company (here called ‘‘transfer’’) in connection with signing on and off the ship. Agreements for this are presented below.
Unlike the sailing legs there is only one payment when booking a transfer. This payment should be made to the Swedish East India Company within seven days of the deckhand receiving the notification email about the transfer. Through paying the agreed amount the deckhand is guaranteed his/her spot and accept the cancellation rules in next paragraph.
When cancelling earlier then 20 days before the start of the transfer in question, 50 % of the amount is refunded. When cancelling later then 20 days, the Swedish East India Company has the right to keep the whole amount.
