Houseboat rental operator Le Boat has unlocked a flash sale for its upcoming 2024 travel season.

The company’s May sale includes:

  • A 30 per cent last minute offer (available for departures in May and June 2024);
  • 30 per cent off on the most popular boats (valid for bookings from July to October 2024);
  • 25 per cent off the premier horizon fleet (an exclusive discount for May and June 2024. This includes cruising on the Rideau Canal and Trent-Severn Waterway).

The offers are valid from May 24 to June 3, 2024 and travellers can choose a three to six-night short getaway or a seven to ten-plus day vacation.

Canal cruise specialists

Le Boat specializes in canal cruise rentals and boasts a fleet of more than 950 boats in more than 33 departure bases across eight countries, including France, Belgium, England, Scotland. Ireland, Germany, Italy, Netherland and Canada. 

A Le Boat vacation allows travellers to enjoy cruising on some of Europe and Canada’s most beautiful canals, inland waterways and rivers.

No boating experience is required as Le Boat teaches your clients, and their crew, everything they need to know to captain their own private houseboat. Eat, sleep and live on board while discovering all that the regions have to offer.

The fleet has been compared to a floating cottage or condo and has everything for a comfortable stay, including fully-equipped kitchens, private showers and bathrooms, comfortable cabins, and a top deck.

Stop at local cafés along the waterways, visit historical sites, enjoy wine tasting, outdoor markets and local shops, or simply relax and enjoy the sunshine while taking in the sites or reading a book from the deck.

Highlights of Le Boat’s 2025 season

Earlier this month, Le Boat unveiled its new route and base on the Severn-Trent Waterways. The base is located at the newly-renovated Horseshoe Bay Marina and in Peterborough, ON. 

Le Boat’s 2025 season offers early booking offers for those who are planning ahead and look for a best-price guarantee.

Guests can save up to 25 per cent plus pay in full at the time of booking to save an extra two per cent.

Boaters can now hire a support captain for their journey. The “Friendly Skipper Program” is for the Canal du Midi in southern France, offering extra training and guidance for first-time boaters.

Other new additions to the season include:

  • A new cruiser – the Liberty, Le Boat's new luxury cruiser for the 2025 season.
  • Expanded fleet and new bases – including two new bases in France.
  • All-inclusive extras bundles – simplify your client’s boating vacation with all-inclusive extras bundles.
