Now, with the ease of booking an Airbnb, you can book a boat. Get My Boat is both a website and an app and it allows users to search for boat rentals near them, whether you’re looking for a powerboat, sailboat, jet ski or anything in between. However, reports say the large majority of boats available are things more like paddleboards, kayaks and jet skis — things the normal traveler would want to rent and be trusted with, rather than, say, a yacht.

 

The booking process is simple, as promised, and you can search for boats based on location, boat type, features and amenities. Just browse through more than 108,000 boats ready to rent and charter in top boating destinations and then message the owner and book online. A connected messaging app allows you to talk with the owner in real time to arrange all of the details. You can even enjoy personal experiences with expert guides. You can currently book boats in more than 180 countries.

 

If you have a boat you’d like to list, the experience is likewise easy. In addition to listing your boat, you can also offer guided water experiences, such as tours. Both companies and private owners can list watercraft and creating a listing is easy and simple.

 

Just like with Airbnb and Uber, both owners and renters leave reviews for one another to build up a community of trustworthy users.

 

So far, more than 100,000 people downloaded the app and more than 30,000 have actually gone boating with a reservation through the app.

Staying Clean on Airplanes

Traveling anywhere hundreds of people share seats is enough to set off any germaphobe’s anxiety. There are ways to limit your contact with airplane seats, though.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Trazee In-Depth: Wellness Spas For Summer

Summer is already the season of soaking in the sun, enjoying warm weather with friends and family and skipping off to far-off destinations for vacation. Just add some R&R time at the spa and you have the ultimate reset button. Combine your love of travel and relaxation with a wellness-focused retreat.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
