Joigny, July 06 2020
We are very glad to inform you that navigation on inland European waterways has resumed normally since the beginning of July.
During the close down of our bases, we have been working hard to prepare our boats for the season and make sure we take appropriate measures to safely welcome you onboard. We have redesigned our procedures for check in (to avoid waiting time and make it as efficient as possible), And obviously, we have completely reviewed our safety protocol from social distancing to boat disinfection and base cleaning.
Choosing a canal boat holiday is certainly one of the safest and most serene way to travel this summer! Immersed in the nature, away from the crowds, you can independently travel from one spot to another on a fully equipped boat… And all of our marinas are accessible by car…
