Instant Booking is a new feature on GetMyBoat that allows customers to book boat trips instantly, with start and end times, prices, durations, and other options all pre-set according to the boat owners' preferences and schedule.
Offering custom quotes for personalized itineraries and options is still possible. But Instant Bookings add a new way of scheduling trips that makes things faster and simpler — which is especially great for owners with busy calendars. You set your own schedule and options first, then customers can find a trip that works for them, book it, and boom: all that's left to do is get ready to get out onto the water.
It's perfect for simple charters that don't require customization, boat tours with pre-set itineraries, setting up trips with all-inclusive pricing, and so much more.
Why Should I Use It?
Boat owners will see plenty of upsides:
- You'll attract customers who are ready to book a predefined trip right away, with no questions or customizations — cutting down on back-and-forth and planning.
- You'll be able to manage your schedule more fixedly and even schedule multiple pre-set daily trips.
- You can customize your available trips to set specific pricing for weekday discounts and high-demand dates, so you get the speed of Instant Booking with the flexibility of variable rates.
You can continue to offer custom private charters and accept custom requests alongside your Instant Booking listings, providing the best of both worlds to grow and manage your business on GetMyBoat easily
