Amsterdam Boat Rental | A guide for your getaway on the water

Amsterdam has 60km of canals running through it, & most of them are accessible by boats. Be it a traveler or a local, the canals can be a nice getaway. Amsterdam is often compared to Venice for its large number of islands connected by many bridges. The scenic beauty and the shining sun is best viewable when you are relaxing in a boat somewhere in a canal. There are a lot of boat rental agencies to help you out in your getaway if you don’t own a boat. In this article, we will list out the things you need to consider before you for an Amsterdam boat rental.

 

Always do the research

If you are a local, chances are that you already know someone who rents boat. Get suggestions from that person before you choose a boat rental. Otherwise, the internet can be your best friend. You will find a list of available options & their reviews online. Find one from that list of boat rentals that meet your needs. Asking help from a local, if you are a traveler, can also be helpful.

Insured Boats | Amsterdam boat rental

Even though insurance for Amsterdam boat rentals is mandatory, ensure the rental service has valid insurance before you get that boat for rental. If you have any doubt regarding the insurance, ask them for more information.

 

Understand the Local Laws

The company that rents you a boat will explain the laws before they give you the keys. But, it is advised to understand various local laws regarding boating and other laws while renting a boat.

 

Understand the Rental Agreement

The rental agreement is a legal document. Ensure that you read and understand every line written on the agreement. If you need any further clarification, ask the rental service for more information.
