7. DO YOU PROVIDE HOTEL PICK UPS?

No. The reason is not to delay the excursions, due to late comers or tourists who don´t show up. And, to allow guests to leave and return to their hotels, whenever they want.

Guests should come by their own means to our MEETING POINT, half way along the pier of Santa Maria (by the fifth bench) 30 minutes before the start of the excursion.

8. CAN WE BOOK AND PAY IN ADVANCE?

Yes. You can formalize your reservation by transferring the deposit or the full amount to Alwaysailing´s account:

Beneficiary: ALWAYSAILING – Marítimo Turísticas, Lda.
Bank of beneficiary: BCA – Banco Comercial do Atlântico
Account: IBAN CV64000300008440891610176
Swift: BCATCVCV

By email, you will get a confirmation of your transfer, as soon as we receive it.

9. CAN WE BOOK IN CAPE VERDE?

Yes. Once you find us through Internet or any other means, and contact us, you become a direct client. So, after your arrival to Cape Verde, you should book directly with us. Please, make sure you do it through one of Alwaysailing staff members (at one of our MEETING POINTS or at our office) for your convenience.

10. CAN WE PAY WITH CREDIT CARDS?

We do not have that possibility. But, you can pay in Euros or Cape Verdian Escudos.

11. DO YOU MAKE DISCOUNTS?

Usually not, because comparing with our competition, Alwaysailing offers the best quality/price equation. And, prices haven’t been raised in the last 6 years. Nevertheless, we may do a special discount for groups of 6 or more people, depending on the season of the year.

12. What is your REFUND policy?

In case of not being able to attend the trip, for any reason, we refund the total amount of the deposit (usually 50%) with a 24 hour notice prior to the start of the excursion.

13. CAN TRIPS BE CANCELLED?

Yes. In case of bad weather or not achieving the minimum number of guests. For that reason, we advise you to book for the first days of your holidays, never for the last day! In case of cancellation, we will move you to another day or give you total refund.

14. CAN WE BUY other EXCUrSIONS FROM LOCAL PEOPLE?

Yes, you can and you should. It is safe, you avoid the high commissions of major tour operators, and you help the people who need the most.

The all inclusive hotels are killing the national businesses, because money is paid in Europe (does not even reach Cape Verde) and tourists spend nothing in the country they visit, once they paid for everything in advance (accommodation, food, entertainment, activities, etc). Many tourists, never leave the hotel, and they are advised not to. Unfortunately, this is the philosophy of most multinationals…

15. THE BEST RESTAURANTS OF SANTA MARIA?

Sabores & Livros, for Sushi, grilled fish, meat, and Portuguese specialties. Very affordable lunch menu. Located in Rua 15 Agosto, NE corner of Porto Antigo III.

Odjo D´Agua Hotel, for lobster, international and Capeverdian cuisine. Local live music every night. Located by the seaside, in front of Porto Antigo I.
