What's Included in Our Holiday Prices?

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

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, bed linen, widescreen television, DVD player, radio, tea towels, cleaning materials, credit card charges and pump out.

All you need to bring is food, clothes and towels (please note that hand-towels are provided for bathrooms, and medium-sized towels can be provided free of charge).

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:-

Example Hire Fees Wyvern Shipping "Bargain Boats"
Boat Hire £600.00 £500.00
VAT included £100.00
Bedding included £  30.00
Car Park included £  20.00

As you can see from the above example, "All-Inclusive Prices" are very important to consider when looking at hire fees.
