Price breakdown and fees

The items below contribute to the cost of a booking. Fees may vary based on boat selected and associated insurance policy. All cost items are shown at checkout before you submit your payment.

Price breakdown

Boat price
This is the rate price the owner sets for a booking.

Captain fee
All bookings with a captain include a captain fee at checkout unless specified otherwise (in which case the captain may request being paid at the dock). This fee is reflected in the price of the booking when a captain is selected.

Renter service fee
A service fee is charged on each rental. The service fee is applied to the price before any coupons or credits are applied. This fee helps Boatsetter provide a safer and more secure booking experience, as well as dedicated customer support throughout your charter. 

Renter insurance fee
While all boats have rental insurance, select boats may require additional insurance to book. This fee helps cover the cost of insurance.

Taxes
Some US states require Boatsetter to collect a tax for rentals that take place in those states. 

Security deposit
A security deposit is held on the renter’s card to cover any incidental damage or lost items. The hold is placed on the card 48 hours before the rental and is released 48 hours following the conclusion of the rental if no claim has been filed.
