Interest-free instalments for 2021 holidays

Secure your 2021 holiday with a 25% deposit, and pay the balance in interest-free instalments.

You’re more likely to get your favourite narrowboat and preferred dates if you book 6 to 12 months ahead. To help you plan and budget for next year's holiday, we accept interest-free monthly payments for bookings made at least six months in advance. An initial deposit confirms the booking, then you spread the cost of your holiday over monthly instalments, up until two months before the departure date. It couldn't be simpler: just choose ‘instalment’ when making your booking online.



We take an initial deposit from your credit/debit card and, thereafter, monthly payments for set amounts are taken from the same card. Each time the payment is taken you’ll receive an email confirming the transaction. These interest-free monthly payments are available for online bookings only. Of course, you can still choose to pay an initial deposit and the full balance two months before your holiday date. Whichever suits you best.

Why not 'hold' a narrowboat while you're confirming details with your friends and family? You’ll find the 'hold' button next to the ‘book’ button.


Just choose the boat and dates you’re interested in, then click the ‘hold’ button. After you’ve filled in your details, we’ll hold that provisional booking for you. If you’re booking over 6 months in advance the booking will be held for 14 days, if 3-6 months in advance, we’ll hold it for 7 days, and if less than 3 months, we’ll hold it for 3 days. Your provisional booking will appear in yellow on the website calendar, and will automatically be released if you do not confirm the booking during the hold period.


We’ll email you the details of your provisional booking as a reminder, and explain how to confirm your booking online. There's no reason to miss your favourite narrowboat for that long awaited 2021 holiday  - check availability now!
