Onboard Accounts

To help your event run smoothly, why not choose an onboard account, easily controlled to ensure you and your guests have a memorable and happy event without worrying about beverage control.

You can discuss your specific allowances and necessities on booking, wether that be a full open bar, a full bar with restrictions on shots and champagne, or an open bar of house wines, beers and soft drinks, we can tailor your account to your requirements.

There are flexible options of how to settle your bar account too, so maybe you would like to pay for a set limit behind the bar, with your balance invoice and once that has been met, the bar will operate on a cash basis. Alternatively you can decide to settle your bar account at the end of the event or if it suits your needs better, we can invoice your bar account to you post event*.

If you do choose to place an amount behind the bar or set a limit, our onboard event manager will ensure you are kept up notified of how your guests are responding to this. This will allow you the flexibility and control to end the account, up the amount or just give you notice of how much your budgeted account has been used.

It is our policy to refund any unused Pre Event Bar Account amount.

Please browse the link below or call us to discuss your particular requirements.

*Please note Post Event Bar Accounts are subject to a 10% of balance processing fee.
