Pick up takes place between 2:30pm and 4:00pm.

Do allow time for pick up and drop off procedures.

Late Return:
Should you return the boat later than the scheduled time of 9:30am, a late fee of up to GBP £50 per hour or part there of will apply. Please contact the base if you think you are going to be late.

Gas, Fuel and Water:
The boat has a 100 gallon water tank which should be refilled daily from water points along the canal. Diesel fuel will be charged upon return of the boat and the cost per litre will be slightly lower than supermarket prices. (average cost 10-15 per day). The boats will typically use between 1.2 - 1.7 litres per hour depending on driving style. The central heating systems are oil fired, which will also use diesel during colder periods.

Age Limits:
The Hirer must be aged 25 years or over. Though there is no age limit for driving the boat, the Hirer warrants that whenever the boat is driven by a person aged under eighteen years they will always be under the close supervision of a competent adult. Where a boat is occupied by a group comprising mainly young persons, the Hirer warrants that at all times a responsible person aged more than 25 years will be in charge of the group. Black Prince may at its discretion cancel any booking made in contravention of this condition before or at the start date. In this event any money paid will be forfeit and any balance payment will remain due unless Black Prince is able to re-let. If Black Prince is able to re-let the Hirer will remain liable for 15% of the price to cover administration expenses.

Black Prince may at its discretion cancel the booking and refuse to hand over the boat to any person or group who in its opinion is not suitable to take charge on the grounds of age, inexperience, suspected influence of alcohol or drugs or any reason that may adversely affect the safety of any person, or commercial interests of Black Prince. In this event (and provided that the Hirer is not in breach of other parts of the agreement) Black Prince will refund any monies paid and the contract shall be discharged without further liability on either party. Black Prince may repossess the boat at any time if in the opinion of Black Prince the Hirer is unsuitable for the reasons given above or if the Hirer is not behaving responsibly or if the boat or any persons are at risk. In this event the Hirer shall remain liable to pay the hire price and no refund shall be due.

Pets:
Pets are welcome, but please provide your own blankets / baskets. They are not allowed on seating or beds and may not be left unattended. Pets are not covered under the company's insurance policy and the Hirer shall be liable for the cost of any damage or extra cleaning required. A maximum of 2 pets per boat. There is a charge of £30 per pet.

Cancellation and Amendment Fees:
A GBP £35 amendment fee will apply to all amendments once you rental has been booked.
 
Once booked, should you wish to cancel a 100% cancellation fee will apply. We strongly recommend taking out adequate travel insurance to cover you should you need to cancel.
