We welcome enquiries about ‘getting included’ from hotel barge owners, operators and fleets; and from specialist agencies.
The key points are –
Inclusion in the most popular online source of information about enjoying the French waterways,
currently averaging some 2,500 individual visitors each week and approaching 1,000 page-views per day.
Inclusion in the Hotel Barges sub-section, part of our new comprehensive Holidays and Vacations section
which already has extensive Hire Boat information and which also features River Cruises.
Multiple links within the site to and from information about regional attractions, canal cruising
guidance, hotel barging FAQs, a typical hotel barge cruise, specialist agent benefits,
and a searchable directory of the hotel barges themselves.
Clear, attractive – and persuasive – individual information pages detail hotel barge attractions
or specialist agent skills. Words, images and video clips.
Barges and Specialists use their own words and images on their information pages,
to communicate and present their own particular message.
Enquiries from hotel barge information pages can either be sent direct to owners or to a nominated agent,
or to an agent determined by an enquirer’s geographic location.
Many hotel barges have representation arrangements with eWaterways, who have partnered with us.
Nominating eWaterways is entirely optional, but provides enquirers with (amongst others)
the benefit of office and telephone contacts in UK/Europe, USA and Australian time zones.
Bespoke enquiry form/email or telephone number.
Participation is open to both hotel barges and specialist agents.
We do not levy any commission on direct-to-owner bookings;
having information included will attract a modest annual charge, similar to an advertisement or directory entry.
There is a limited free trial period offer.
We are happy to work with owners and agents to develop their information on the website in the way they want (subject of course, to our overall editorial style and structure parameters)
