Membership and Account Registration

Book My Boat operates an online marketplace designed to facilitate the listing and booking of Boats that are suitably registered and made available for hire. Your listings can be viewed by the general public. However, if a person wants to hire a boat or create a listing they must first register and create a profile with Book My Boat.

By signing up as an Owner on Book My Boat and creating a listing, you represent that you are either the owner of the Boat being listed, or the duly appointed agent of the owner with authority to take this action.

As an Owner, you may have two active Book My Boat Accounts – one active as an Owner and one active as a Rental customer. You agree to provide and maintain accurate, current and complete information. Book My Boat reserves the right to suspend or remove your Book My Boat Account/s if you create more than two Accounts or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter is deemed to be false, misleading or out dated.

You are responsible for safeguarding your password. Book My Boat is not responsible for any fraudulent or suspicious activity on your account. You agree that you will contact Book My Boat if you observe or witness any unauthorised activity on your account. Book My Boats accounts are non-transferable. Members are liable for all losses they may incur when lost or stolen payment credentials or accounts are used to purchase products or services.




Vessel Listing

As an Owner, you can create listings advertising your Boat for rent. To do so you will need to complete the listing process which requires information related to commercial registration, equipment on the vessel, vessel specifications and photos, optional extras available for hire, calendar availability, financial information including listing price, deposit value and bank account details for where you’d like to receive payments etc. Once all this information is entered a listing will automatically be created.

You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any listing you create and any rental you accept:

Book My Boat reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, but without obligation to do so, to remove or suspend access to any Listing for any reason, in its sole discretion, including Listings that Book My Boat considers to be objectionable, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the website or our services.

You understand and agree that Book My Boat does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for you as an Owner. Agreements made for hiring a Boat are between the You and the Renter.

Book My Boat make certain tools available – including a star rating system to both Owners and Renters -to assist with making informed decisions about whether or not to engage in transactions based on the previous experience of other members.




You Choose your Renters

Book My Boat provides a marketplace and platform where you can engage with Renters for your Boat. You have full discretion in relation to accepting a Renter for your Boat. You should make your own enquiries in relation to each rental query and to the extent you believe necessary, impose conditions suitable to that situation on the rental.

Consequently, Book My Boat takes no responsibility in relation to the actions of Renter or the outcome of the Rental for your Boat.




Book My Boat Appointed as Your Limited Payment and Invoicing Agent

By listing a Boat you appoint Book My Boat as your limited agent solely for the purpose of issuing invoices and collecting payments made by Renters.

You acknowledge and accept that the rental and other prices listed by you are inclusive of the Book My Boat Service Fees. You accept and agree that the payment system used by Book My Boat will only pay you the Boat Fee and will deduct any fees due to Book My Boat.

You agree that as the payment agent, Book My Boat will accept Rental Fees on your behalf.

You agree that Book My Boat may, in accordance with the Cancellation Policy permit the Renter to cancel the booking. You will pay the Administration Fee (or equivalent) to Book My Boat as set out in the Cancellation Policy if you are responsible for the cancellation.
