If you confirm your reservation with your chosen boat company, a cancellation policy usually applies. Each boat company has its own cancellation policy. Ask to see this policy before you confirm your quotation.
The reviews on Rent A Boat Amsterdam are submitted by people who have recently sailed on a boat which they requested via the Rent A Boat Amsterdam website. After sending your request, you will receive an email on the day after your sail date, asking you to provide us with feedback. On the form, you can choose whether you want the review to be published on our website anonymously or under your name.
Yes it is. You can either simply request several boats, tick the box ‘If possible, please send me information about similar boats’ at the bottom of the request form, or call us on +31 (0)20 6247635 for advice. We will be happy to help you find the right boat for your specific occasion.
No. Rent A Boat Amsterdam only includes boats that can be rented exclusively. That means you have to rent the entire boat and that the boat is exclusively at your disposal during your trip. If you want to buy individual tickets please refer to Tickets | Amsterdam Boats.
No. This site only includes boats with a skipper and, if applicable, also a crew.
That's a good idea. You have two options: you can either choose a boat with an electric motor (zero emissions), or you can choose a carbon-neutral boat, where the emissions are compensated by us through our CO2 reduction program. On each boat's page, we indicate whether or not they are environmentally friendly.
Because the boats on Rent A Boat Amsterdam are all rented, you decide where you want to board the boat (as long as there is a dock at that location). However, be aware that you may be charged an extra fee if you wish to board from certain locations. To help you find the right boarding location, we have created maps with Google Maps that indicate the free boarding locations for each boat. For more information about boarding locations and docks in Amsterdam, click here.
Many boats do, but not all of them. Check each boat's page to see whether the boat has a 220 volt socket. This is shown under the ‘facilities’ section.
If you have an operating licence that authorises you to lease your boat in Amsterdam, you are eligible to advertise your boat on Rent A Boat Amsterdam. If this is the case, please contact us to learn about the possibilities.
Rent A Boat Amsterdam wants to make the boat rental market in Amsterdam more transparent and has therefore entered into partnerships with several boat rental companies in Amsterdam to enable you to compare different boats and find the boat that best fits your specific needs. When you request a specific boat, we put you in direct contact with the owner of the boat.
