"First experience with LocaBoat very good (2017). Second experience (2019) poor. Very disappointed with one of the boats (3 boats rented for a family holiday for 16 people), poor state of repair, and the cleanliness of the boat left much to be desired. Uneven, splintered floors, broken fridge, and a cupboard that smelt of sewerage left us disappointed and will not be using LocaBoat in the future. Also beware of using certain cards to pay for the possible damage, they blocked 500E on our card and we were unable to use it for the rest of the holiday and we had difficulty getting the amount refunded, although the was no damage to the boats!"


"Our week at Locaboat Holiday were very placid and the people who attended us both at the Reservations and at the Base were very friendly especially Mme. Helene who attend with great kindness our queries by internet and phone, and the Joigny instructor Ives who was especially careful in his advice to handle the boat. But there is something we want to point out that did not work as planned. The locks in general took a long time, in some cases more than an hour each, we had to wait for the "eclusier" to arrive and then wait for the ships that came in the opposite direction to pass. This was quite heavy as well as time consuming. We were not able to make walks that were planned within the schedule sent in advance by the friendly staff of Locaboat due to lack of time. Also in most of the small Villages that we overnight (except Auxerre which proved to be the best of the trip) there were no Taxi services, so it was impossible to do the programs planned. The schedule Locaboat sent is very ambitious and most of the time cannot be done, unless you have more than a week that was not our case. When we realized that we would not have time to return the boat in Joigny as planned, we decided to turn back before and stay half day and all night at Auxerre to enjoy the best of the trip ....!"
