How to book a boat

Booking a holiday

Booking a holiday with Beacon Park Boats is simple and straightforward. We offer flexable and secure payment methods for monthly installments to the ability to hold your boat temporarily while you make a decision. We want to ensure that your booking experience is as stress-free as your trip down the Mon & Brec canal.

Holding a boat

We understand the whole process of booking holidays can be a little complicated, we're dedicated to minimising this stress as far as possible in what we can offer you. With this in mind, our ‘hold’ feature on a boat allows you to reserve the boat while you make a decision and gives you time to confirm arrangements with family and friends.

Holding a boat can be arranged via the website by selecting ‘hold’ during the booking process and filling in the online form or over the phone if you would prefer.

If booking over three months in advance we will hold a boat for seven days, if less than three months in advance we will hold a boat for three days and if less than a week in advance we will hold a boat for one day.

Payment options


Pay in full

If desired you can always pay for your holiday in one, in full payment when booking your holiday. Bookings can be made via the website, phone, booking form in our brochure or cheque as preferred.



Another option for guests is to pay an initial 25% deposit on booking your holiday, with the remaining balance to be paid eight weeks before the date your holiday is to start. This payment method is available for stays booked in advance of eight weeks.



If you’d prefer to spread the cost of your holiday we also offer our instalments plan. 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- available for stays booked over six months in advance.
