Today’s appointment with today’s Rental Special ahead of the 2021 summer vacations is with GlobeSailor, a leading online boat rental company.
Founded in 2008 in France,
quickly developed in Italy as well, becoming a leading company in the online boat rental market. So much so that today it has a network offering 900 charter companies and 13,000 boats in 180 destinations. Each boat meets the highest quality criteria in maintenance and comfort. In addition, given the pandemic situation, GlobeSailor’s charter partners have activated an important set of protocols to accommodate boaters and enable the best possible sailing conditions. These include protections for employees, complete cleaning and sanitizing of boats, and testing for skippers. GlobeSailor is committed to ensuring that these instructions are implemented by partners according to their responsibilities. To make each proposal clearer for the client, on the GlobeSailor website each boat description is accompanied by a list of measures taken.
GlobeSailor then launches a novelty this year who loves boating but wants to have different experiences. These are houseboat vacations on the river: already available and bookable in France and Germany, soon to be available in Italy, Holland and Portugal. Pandemic has changed tourism-that‘s why GlobeSailor decided to come up with a new way of thinking about boating vacations. Aboard a houseboat you experience an alternative travel experience with “slow cruise” itineraries. A vacation that has fewer restrictions, does not require licenses, and is often cheaper than chartering a sailboat. And the destinations are equally fantastic: you set course for Burgundy and its green hills well known to wine lovers, but also for the Canal du Midi in southern France, and again in magnificent, ancient Brittany. All with prices starting from 930 euros per week for a 4-person houseboat.
For those who prefer sailing, however, summer 2021 will still be the season of the Mediterranean. And for those who believe Italy’s shores will be crowded, the answer is simple: route to Greece. Beloved since time immemorial, the Hellenic islands are a unique destination and at the same time rich in endless vacation possibilities. For the summer of 2021 GlobeSailor offers attractive deals to the Ionian Islands: they are the closest to Italy and offer dreamy landings-such as those in Corfu and Lefkas-, unspoiled nature, mild weather throughout the summer, and, on land, charming but cheap and uncrowded tavernas. As of today to go on vacation to Greece then you only need a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test done less than 72 hours before boarding. Among GlobeSailor’s proposals in the Ionian Islands is the charter of a Lagoon 380 (period Aug. 7-14) in Marina Gouvia (Corfu) from 3,830 euros.
