Our partners said it best…
“Working with Goolets was a very good business option full of challenges for our gulet. They put a lot of effort in trying to match a perfect gulet with a perfect client and this enables both sides to come out happy. Beside getting lots of groups and business, we also received lots of useful advice that helped us put more effort to details, that matter a lot and thus improving our services. Young but very experienced team of positive people that love what they do. !”
“Goolets is one our best agency partners for the last 4 years since we are working together. They put incredible effort in organising every detail with the client with reservation and before clients embarkation, which really helps us as yacht owners to prepare for the client in the best possible way. In case of any problems, they solve them fast, smooth and in efficient way. In last years we became more friends then business partners, while our bookings continue to grow all the time also. They also work hard to grow every year and this also pushes us to grow with them also.”
“Cooperation with Goolets for me personally and for my company means a trustworthy partner with who my business can grow. They are fantastic in web marketing, also every part of their team is expert in their field and like that make serious job. Until now in my cooperation with Goolets I learned lots of small secrets which help me to advance my part of job with gulets, specially in hospitality. They are our most important partner in bookings our boats and i believe that this cooperation with time will grow further. A company of young people dedicated to their work and goals, but in same time they have a good sense for humour and jokes which show that they really love their job.”
At Goolets I really appreciate how they are always willing to listen to the guests wishes, and in this way offering the best solutions. In last 7 years we have established a very strong Trust between each other, which I believe is the most important part of any business. As an agency they also have new ideas how to be better, and more interesting. Each year also I am happier every year with the number of bookings they send also. We are a real team, not just business partners.
The cooperation with Goolets Agency means professionalism, development, good service and an easy cooperation. They are really in bringing together the right services and the right guests regarding to their requests and they are really good at giving the right information, which avoids all disappointments from the clients. They really provided us with some really good ideas for new destinations and they also make our services better this way.
How much business I can expect to get from you if you list my gulet?
If your gulet is listed on Goolets.net page, this is just the first (starting) point of our cooperation. The number of groups you receive depend mostly on the gulet owner, and less so on Goolets.net. It depends on 2 main factors:
The better your gulet is presented, the higher conversion inquiry/booking you will have.
If your gulet is presented to 100 customers, you could get 10 bookings or zero bookings out of it.How to get a large number of clients from goolets.net? Impress us with amazing services and gulet, establish advanced cooperation and help us make an amazing presentation of your vessel.
What do I have to do to start partnership with Goolets?
The process goes like this:
How much does it cost to list my gulet?
We believe in a pay-for-performance model. You pay a commission based on the dollar value of the booking that we send you – and nothing more. There are no upfront membership fees or set-up costs to work with us. In fact, we take care of everything that’s needed to showcase your property online – including professional copywriting and ensuring that your photography looks stunning.
Then, once your property is live on our site, you will be included in our extensive email and web-based campaigns as well as our third party marketing initiatives, also at no cost to you.
For advanced cooperation or exclusive partnership, we are very open minded to any ideas and we have a couple of options in how to boost your sales also.
What is the booking procedure and what are the payment conditions?
1.0 Monitoring availability of all gulets we work with, allows us to reply fast to each inquiry.
2.0 Option is created, when a client raises his hand and gives us feedback on the offer we gave him, explicitly showing interest for your gulet.
3.0 Contract and Payment is done by a client towards Goolets agency.
4.0 Contract and Payment toward gulet owner is created when the deposit payment is received and a contract from a client is signed.
5.0 One month before clients departure, finalisation stage takes part, where every single detail is organised.
6.0 Final Payment and travel documentation is issues when finalisation stage is completed.
7.0 Check in day is monitored very closely. Goolets representative helps out with smooth arrival of the client and a “pre-inspection” of the gulet is always made before the client arrives.
8.0 Cruise time is closely monitored and Goolets is in close contact with the client, the crew and the owner the entire week to make sure it all goes perfectly well.
9.0 Check out time and clients feedback are the most important part of the entire procedure. Satisfied client and a “good life” is Goolets company mission.
10.0 Analysis of feedback is the final step, that enables Goolets agency and the gulet owner to always grow, learn and improve the services.
After the deposit payment of the client is received and contracts with owner and the client are signed, the owner issues an invoice, which is instantly paid. Deposit payments vary from 30 and up to maximum 50% of the charter rate, which is different for each gulet.
The final charter payment is paid approximately 1 month before departure or after the finalisation organisation is done.
What is "finalization stage" and why it is so important?
Finalisation stage is Goolets Procedure, which prepares the crew for the clients arrival
The organization starts 5 weeks before the clients arrival and it end with the client finishing the cruise.
It consists of the following things:
1 – ROUTE BUILDER – WHAT TO SEE: what are the clients wishes and ideas. What are the places he is interested in seeing and which places we would suggest, according to a group structure of the client. We help the client to get the best ideas and brainstorm and itinerary that would make the client say “Life is Good” every single day. We believe that every single anchorage, port, marina, village, bay or beach should have a “wow factor” for the client. The goal of this is to provide the “insight info” to the captain of the yacht and make his life much easier also.
2 – ACTIVITIES ORGANIZER: this can consist from all the basic things, such as anchoring away from crowds, doing water sports or having a dinner in a nice little tavern, to the more complex guided land trips. Activities builder gives our clients a great idea of “what to do”, when they arrive to amazing locations.
3 – TASTE BUDS – FOOD OPTIMIZATION: eating is one of the main parts of each gulet cruise and each group has different wishes, ideas and expectations about food. That is why it is crucial to give a client a very good idea of what he can expect on board and then organise and optimise a menu in a way that an applause to the chef will be a common thing throughout the cruise.
4 – ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE TO GULET: first impressions matter. So does how you say goodbye. We put a lot of effort into planning the first and the last day to make it as smooth and comfortable for everyone as possible. Transfers from airport to gulet, check in procedures, breaking the ice with the crew, first and last day plans, early arrivals or late departures…everything needs to be perfectly planned and prepared.
5 – GENERAL EXPECTATIONS OF THE CLIENT: what type of communication is expected from the crew, cleaning details, drinks organisation, birthdays or anniversaries, cruising times, meal times, allergies, water sports usage, staying in ports or marinas…it all matters – A LOT! When we match the expectations of the client with the crew, we always get amazing charters. A very small detail could mean a difference between a repeated client or a complaint.
6 – DURING THE CRUISE OPTIMIZATION: 97% of complaints happen due to a bad communication during the cruise. That is why a constant communication with the client is critical. Any issues need to be resolved, upgraded and optimised instantly – ON SPOT.
This procedure is optimised and used in the last 12 years in Goolets company and it enables us to see which gulets deliver on the promises, it improves our cooperation with the owners and makes our clients very happy.
