What is a special offer?

A special offer allows the owner of a vessel to set a custom price for a potential renter before the booking is approved. A boat owner can offer a special price by viewing the conversation, and clicking the "Special Offer" button located at the top of the message thread (pictured below).

The boat owner will then be prompted to enter the new price offered to the renter (before service fees). Once done, simply agree to Boatbound Terms of Service click "Send Special Offer" (pictured below).

Special offers are the final agreed upon value of the charter between the owner and renter. For example, on a $1,000 full day charter the renter would pay $1,100. If there was a special offer inputed by the owner for $800 in lieu of the $1,000, then the renter is only responsible for $880.

The boat listing’s calendar will now be marked as unavailable and the renter will be notified of the special offer price. However, if you wish to remove the special offer, simply click "Cancel Offer" (pictured below).
