You can hire a boat for 2 hours or longer. For every hour after that, you pay a low hourly rate. This way you can decide for yourself how long you want to rent a boat in Amsterdam.

We hope that this does not happen, but should it happen we charge €30,- for each 15 minutes late. Do you think you will be late? In that case, call us immediately.

You can call us at that time to ask if this is possible because of other reservations. If you are late bringing the boat back without permission we will charge you €30 per 15 minutes late.

Up to 48 hours before the start of the reservation? Then you can move free of charge. Cancel completely? Then you will get 50% of the amount paid back.

Within 48 hours before the start of the reservation? Canceling or moving is then no longer possible. You then owe the full amount.

In weather conditions where it is not safe to sail, only Canal Motorboats can decide to move the reservation. The reservation will then be rescheduled free of charge to a date to be determined later by the tenant (within one year after the booked date). We will of course contact you.
