What does “Pre-Approve” mean?

A pre-approval is a way to let potential renters know right away that your boat is available. We recommend pre-approving a renter only after you are comfortable with their boating experience and are confident they will go through with the rental.

To pre-approve a potential renter, just click pre-approve from the Dashboard or conversation. (pictured below).

You will then be prompted to select pickup time, instructions and view the amount that you would earn. Once done, simply agree to the Boatbound Terms of Service and click "Send Pre-Approval" (pictured below). Your listing’s calendar will now be marked as unavailable and the renter will be notified.  If your renter does not respond within 36 hours, the pre-approval will expire and your calendar will automatically open up.
