Up until a booking is approved, contact information (phone, emails, and websites) are blocked. Boatbound links [like to our support pages, cancellation policy and terms] are allowed. We block this content for a few reasons:
Your safety. Scammers, phishers, and other unsavory characters sometimes target these pieces of information and in order to protect you and your information we block contact information.
Keep bookings on Boatbound. Taking a booking offsite is against our terms of service and grounds for account suspension. It's also unsafe, as doing a booking may outside of Boatbound may mean that the boat isn't insured, leaving everyone at risk.
Once a booking is approved, you'll see the blocked information again, and will be able to send any contact information through the message thread without being blocked.
