Renting boats is not a new concept and when a hotel room is not available, it certainly provides a hassle-free solution.  Why not check out Beds on Board which is a website connecting accommodation seekers with yacht, canal boats and luxurious motor cruiser owners?  The boat owners are happy to share their accommodation with holidaymakers who wish to visit fantastic locations. 

What can I expect?

The beauty of the arrangement is experiencing life on the water without any qualifications or commitments; from the centre of a city to the great outdoors with nature at your feet. It is good to know that many boat owners allow pets on board too.

Even better, costs are usually cheaper than staying in a hotel in a similar location. Often boats are conveniently located close to restaurants and popular attractions ensuring a refreshing holiday experience.

Booking accommodation with Beds on Board provides the ideal excuse to celebrate an especial event with loved ones, an unusual romantic getaway, or a superb birthday gift for friends and family. Renting a boat also makes perfect sense for families. It is certainly an interesting way to view your holiday destination compared to a hotel room!  

It is worth checking out the website if you wish to find a base for a weekend City break, or even a place to stay whilst on a work trip. There are 40 countries to choose from on the Beds on Board website. 

Many new owners are joining Beds on Board and guests can take their pick from many UK places including York, Southampton, London and Scotland.  If you fancy a trip further afield then take your pick from a super selection of locations, including Malta, Grenada, Palma and Miami Beach. 

How much does it cost?

Owners list and price their own boats and accommodation costs start from under a reasonable £50 a night. Just think, for a slightly more than an overnight stay in a Travelodge, you can stay on a luxury sailing yacht in a lovely location.

Just imagine sitting on board a luxury yacht and watching the sunset with a glass of bubbly!  Find out more:
