There are two ways of booking rentals with GetMyBoat.
If you click the blue Contact Owner button, which has an interactive questionnaire to determine your needs and gives you the opportunity to reach an owner, your card will not be charged until the owner has created an offer and you have accepted the offer. At that time, you will enter your credit card information.
If you click the gray Request to Book button and put your card down on the system, we run a pre-authorization on the card until the owner accepts the booking as confirmed. If the owner happens to decline, the pre-authorization will be released and you will not be charged. If you use a debit card, typically financial institutions will put a hold on the amount, so we suggest using a credit card where possible.
