How to Book Your Canal Boat Holiday

What's Included in Our Holiday Prices?

We are one of the few companies able to offer 'All-Inclusive Prices (No Hidden Extras)'.

The easiest way to check a boat's price and availability is to use our 'Canal Boat Hire Availability Search' (on the right or below). This also gives you the option to reserve your canal boat online.

Alternatively, full details of our weekly and short break prices can be found on our Narrowboat Holiday Prices page.

England Holiday Canal Boat on a UK CanalAt first glance the initial cost of hiring a boat may seem expensive.
But please remember the cost of the boat not only provides your accommodation but your transport and your entertainment.
This means entertainment for the whole family including the dog!

The canal scene is not commercialised, and you may even find difficulty in spending money! There is none of this "forever putting your hand in your pocket" associated with seaside, touring and hotel holidays.

Our prices are fully inclusive of V.A.T. (as applicable), car parking, bottled gas, diesel fuel, lubricating oil, bed linen, colour television/DVD player, cleaning materials and credit card charges.

All you need to bring is food, clothes, towels and tea towels (towels and tea towels are provided on request for overseas clients).

There are no hidden extras. Optional extras are our Cancellation Scheme and there is a small charge for pets.

Hire fees from other boatyards may appear more reasonable but our all-inclusive price must be carefully compared as shown in the example below:-
