About us

Fuel Fair and Loyalty Rewards

Fair fuel costs

All our narrowboats start with a tank full of fuel – plenty to cover a steady two week canal boat cruise. You pay a fuel deposit when you book your boating holiday which starts from £110 for a week or £70 for a short  break.

When you bring the narrowboat back to us the balance of the deposit is refundable after deducting the fuel used. If you have used fuel in excess of the deposit, you will be asked to pay the difference.

Fuel is included for our holidays departing from Silsden.

Rewarding our regular customers

There’s no better testament to the quality and enjoyment of an Anglo Welsh canal barge holiday than if you choose to return for another one. We believe that when you do, your loyalty should be rewarded. Our ‘payback’ scheme, which includes short canal boat breaks as well as week-long holiday cruises, offers great discounts, based on the number of years you have cruised with us.

One year…2% reduction to a maximum of £40
Two years…4% reduction to a maximum of £80
Three years…6% reduction to a maximum of £120
Four years…8% reduction to a maximum of £150
Five years…10% reduction to a maximum of £190

Please note: The Loyalty Bonus is calculated on the net discount holiday price.

If you are a member of the British Armed Forces, we are proud to offer you up to 15% off your holiday. And we offer a 10% discount to Blue Light card holders. Please call our booking team on 0117 304 1122 for details.
