Getting in early for your Le Boat river holiday in 2020 is going to reward you in more ways than one. It’s not just the savings you can make with the early bird discounts, but you’ll also beat the crowds, score the best boat and be able to make the most of the stunning regions you’ll be meandering through.

A cruise on Le Boat is reasonable enough compared with other river cruising options – It’s a DIY style of small river boats, left to your own devices when it comes to driving your boat, refuelling, cooking, mooring, and exploring – But here are four more reasons why you should snap up your Le Boat 2020 cruise now.

Le Boat offers self contained river experiences

1.  Save 20% in 2020

Le Boat’s early bird discount means saving up to 20 percent on a range of self-drive cruises in 8 countries in Europe, and also in Canada.

Early bird prices start at $689 pp for a 7 night one-way cruise on the Canal du Midi in France, including the discount, based on 4 people cruising together in mid-April 2020.

When it comes to a boating holiday the scenic Canal du Midi is a must. Cruising this 300-year-old waterway, you will savour the slow easy pace of travel past the lush vineyards in the heart of the Languedoc wine region.

2. Get your favourite boat 

Booking in advance means being able to choose the most suitable boat for your budget, group size and group make up.  Le Boat has a large range of boats, but the most popular boat types sell out early.

3. Beat the crowds

School holidays are a very popular time for travel so to get the best price and best choice of boat and not miss out, booking early will alleviate any stress of FOMO.

Sit back and enjoy the ride

4. Maximise your time in the region

Booking in advance gives you longer to get excited about your holiday, research the regions you’ll be visiting and make those all important reservations for top restaurants, museums, tours and more. There’s nothing worse than travelling all that way only to be stuck at the end the long queues or worse, to be told it’s full.

Le Boat offers the opportunity to stop at some hidden gems off the tourist trail so the best way to find these is to research and plan your trip, using the cruising guides Le Boat provides, and the first hand knowledge of their cruise specialists.

Book by 2nd December 2019 for the Early Bird deals. Conditions apply.
