This new partnership will enable boat captains and owners in the United States and Europe, who use GetMyBoat, to obtain tailored insurance coverage for their private and charter needs in one place. This partnership utilizes A-rated security to provide peace-of-mind to all users who opt for coverage.
The GetMyBoat and BCI partnership facilitates the development of safety infrastructure and boating resources for all users of the platform. It is changing the way that boat captains, owners, and charter operators ensure their business operations in the United States and Europe.
Unlike other insurance programs that augment an owner’s existing annual policy by charging additional fees, the BCI policy replaces an owner’s annual policy by providing comprehensive coverage whether being used for private or commercial use.
GetMyBoat does not require operators to use this policy, nor charge additional fees for not using it. It is simply an insurance option that replaces an owner’s standard annual coverage, with full protection for rental bookings.
It is the first insurance partnership of its kind for our company. GetMyBoat now has a presence in 9,300 destinations around the world, offering more than 131,000 experiences. Combined with discounts for captains training & renter education, we continue to offer a comprehensive program for our owners. GetMyBoat is committed to taking with the lowest fees in the boat rental space.
"As a boat owner myself, this is the perfect option to replace mainstream coverage with a custom policy that also covers any rental activity. It’s a game-changer for the peer 2 peer space, which has seen many insurance companies shy away from providing coverage” - Douglas Bird, GetMyBoat
