Why you should partner with Le Boat

Le Boat is the market leader in self-drive canal boat holidays, with over 50 years of experience in the industry. Le Boat owns and operates one of the largest and most stylish selections of self-drive canal boats in Europe and Canada. 


With a fleet of over 900 boats, travellers can easily choose a boat that best fits their budget, travel style and group size (sleeping from 2 to 12 people). All boats feature fully-equipped kitchens, comfortable furnishings, showers and bathrooms. Instructions and an orientation are provided and no previous boating experience or licence is required to hire a boat. We operate a network of departure bases across nine destinations, meaning Le Boat’s self-drive canal boat holidays can be whatever your customers want them to be – from a full-on, unique action-packed adventure to a slow-paced, relaxing chance to unwind and explore the waterways at their own leisure. If your customers can drive a car, then they will feel comfortable driving one of Le Boat's cruisers.


We know that our continued success depends on providing the best service, boats and destinations, and we do, so your customers are in good hands with Le Boat!

Types of agent partnership

Agent link

This system allows our partner agents to add a link to your website or marketing activity to a customised version of the Le Boat website, that can use your own phone number, opening times, terms and conditions and logo. With this system, you will either receive customer booking requests that you then book and confirm with us, or you can receive commission for bookings that your customers make directly with Le Boat. This functionality is for customers to use rather than your staff.

Direct API

For larger agent partners that meet the necessary requirements, we are able to develop dedicated API integrations direct into our booking system. The API connection will allow you to check availability, create quotes and book vacations using an XML script. This will allow you to integrate Le Boat vacations into your own website, with all bookings managed by you.



Book on request

If your business is not suited to either an agent link or direct API, we are also able to accept booking requests for agent partners on an ad-hoc basis. Get in touch with one of our sales team members for more information.

Charles Price says...

"This was our 4th Le Boat cruise and we were most impressed with the boat and with the excellent staff. The reception ladies were most helpful and extremely pleasant, whilst the handover of the boat was easy. We have already booked another Le Boat cruise for next year."
