When you live on a tight budget, Canal Boat Hire holidays can seem like they are out of the questions. Yet this is not necessarily the case. Since there are many ways to take a canal boat holiday that can fit into your tight budget that nearly everyone can afford to take one of these fantastic trips down one of many beautiful canals.
One of the easiest ways to grab one of the budget canal boat hires is to opt to go with a group of friends and split the costs of the holiday. Some boating companies require additional deposits for a crew of all the same gender, but if you go with a mixed group all of you can chip in to hire the canal boat for a week or two and the costs per person becomes quite small in comparison.
Going with a group of friends allows everyone to chip in for groceries as well. While some people decide that each individual or couple should provide their own groceries. Others decide that each individual or couples should provide a certain number of meals for the entire group. This can make the grocery portion of the arrangement the most expensive part of the holiday, which is a pretty good deal for those on a tight budget. Canal Boat Hire companies often offer discounts during their slow season, which can reduce your costs even further.
If you have the time, going from a Monday to Thursday can be a great way to stick to your tight budget. Going over the traditional weekend often runs full price while being willing to go during the week and skip the weekend can drop your costs significantly with the right company. There are many creative ways to save money on your holiday, which often saves your free time for fun pursuits on the canal when you otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford it. Canal Boat Hire is a great holiday for the whole family and at prices you can afford, take a look at the wide selection of boats available today for hire.
