Types of partnerships

Agent link

This system allows our partner agents to add a link to your website or marketing activity to a customised version of the Le Boat website, that can use your own phone number, opening times, terms and conditions and logo. With this system, you will either receive customer booking requests that you then book and confirm with us, or you can receive commission for bookings that your customers make directly with Le Boat. This functionality is for customers to use rather than your staff.

Direct API

For larger agent partners that meet the necessary requirements, we are able to develop dedicated API integrations direct into our booking system. The API connection will allow you to check availability, create quotes and book vacations using an XML script. This will allow you to integrate Le Boat vacations into your own website, with all bookings managed by you.

 

 

Book on request

If your business is not suited to either an agent link or direct API, we are also able to accept booking requests for agent partners on an ad-hoc basis. Get in touch with one of our sales team members for more information.

What our customers say...

Margaret Perkins says...

"Five star service every time - We have booked vacations with Le Boat for over 15 years and always had a five star experience. If we need help before our vacation, or during it, they have always been there with a smile!"

Charles Price says...

"This was our 4th Le Boat cruise and we were most impressed with the boat and with the excellent staff. The reception ladies were most helpful and extremely pleasant, whilst the handover of the boat was easy. We have already booked another Le Boat cruise for next year."
