The holiday season is the perfect time for family and friends to come together and make lasting memories together on the water. To ensure you and your boat are ready to maximize earnings this holiday season, make sure your listing is up to date!

Update you calendar

Your calendar keeps you in control of your bookings. Be sure to update your calendar accordingly with your holiday schedule so you can receive booking requests as often as you are available. Manage your boat listing now to make sure potential renters are looking at the correct availability.

Set holiday weekend pricing

Premium holiday pricing is available to set you up for success during the upcoming busy holiday weekends! You have the ability to choose and set pricing for your boat on select date ranges from your Calendar. Don’t forget to set your price as early as possible to guarantee valuable bookings!

Set special preferences

Holiday’s mean parties, fireworks, music, dancing, eating, and much more! Prior to your booking, be sure to discuss what is and what isn’t allowed on your boat with potential renters. You can also edit your boat’s description and preferences explaining all of the details. Setting expectations prior to the trip will guarantee renters, and yourself, a stress-free holiday!

Work the reviews

Positive reviews are key and this is the perfect time to rack up those 5-star reviews! Nice gestures go a long way, especially during the holiday season, so make your renters fun and celebratory day on the water one to remember! You can do this by adding a holiday touch to your boat, leaving a note wishing them a great experience, throwing in complimentary floats or even a few extra water bottles to quench their thirst.
