Good to know!
General information on travelling on board freighters

You have planned a very special trip. However, travelling on board a freighter requires good preparation. This is why you should book well in advance. We will send you confirmation once you have booked. We will inform you of the precise departure times shortly before the start of your trip.

While preparing for your trip, please be aware that schedules may change at short notice.

The shipping firms make every effort to inform their passengers as soon as possible, but cannot be made liable for any changes in schedule and such like.

You will receive an invoice for a down payment along with the confirmation of booking. The down payment amounts to 25 % of the total price. You will then receive the final invoice between two and four weeks before the start of your trip. Please settle this invoice within 8 days. Passport, visa and health requirements are dependent on the route in question.

Passengers are responsible for dealing with the formalities themselves. The visa instructions we provide in each description of trips are unbinding information.

The responsible embassies and consulates in the respective countries can provide you with binding visa instructions. A doctor is not on board freight ships.

Therefore, for your own safety, make sure that you are physically fit. In general, there are age limits on the passengers, but they differ depending on the shipping firms. The Hamburg Sued Travel Agency can inform you of any special regulations.

The shipping firms have restricted liability. The terms of business of each shipping form will apply. We therefore recommend that you conclude a separate insurance policy for your baggage and your health.

Hamburger Sued Reiseagentur GmbH would be pleased to provide you with additional information. Hamburger Sued Reiseagentur GmbH is not the organiser of these trips, but instead acts as broker in dealings with travellers. The terms of passenger transport maintained by the shipping firm with which the booking was placed will apply.
