The Hire Boat Handover Programme
When looking for a company to take your first boating holiday with, you need to be sure you will be given suitable tuition before leaving the base.
It can be a daunting task travelling down the waterways for the first time. It isn't difficult, but in order that you feel comfortable you need to be with a company who takes your enjoyment and safety seriously.
The National Guide to Hire Boat Handover is available to hire boat operators to help promote safe enjoyment of the inland waterways. The logo can be a useful tool for you to look for when selecting your chosen holiday company.
You will find those Drifters members who are currently in the scheme display the logo beside their company details.
Those companies allowed to display the logo have undergone an audited process to insure their instruction and handover process to customers includes all the information you will need to be sure you will know how to handle the boat and facilities aboard safely so you enjoy your boating adventure to the full.
The scheme draws together good practice from practical experience of the best hire boat operators in the UK.
An effective handover procedure, properly managed, will help to raise customer satisfaction, keep the boat and passengers safe, as well as showing the company that its customers safety is an issue that is taken seriously.
All of our personnel are accredited by BM (British Marine) for Hire Boat Instruction & Handover Procedures, so you will be in safe hands!
