Great boat hire, enjoyable location.
Staff were all about business which was done efficiently and quickly: but can not say either friendly or pleasant.
We rented a boat for a week, the first problems started right at the beginning, at the Le Boat base in Homps: we had booked a 12-seat \"SALSA B\" boat and instead they gave us a 10-seat \"SALSA A\" boat, which by the way hadn’t been cleaned properly, the lounge area was dirty, with crumbs of the previous travelers all over the seats. We went back to the Le Boat office to complain about this, specially the nuisance of having been given a smaller boat without even them mentioning this to us, and had to barter for extra services in order to make up for the inconvenience.We started our holiday, left Homps and headed north to Carcassonne and up to here everything was great. Since we had to return the boat to Homps, Le Boat advised us not to go further north than Carcassonne but rather to go back and visit the villages south of Homps, so after Carcassonne we turned back and headed south to Le Somail in order to then return the boat back to Homps at the end of the week. The trip was fun only for the first few days north of Homps, when we turned and headed south of Homps we had huge problems, the most important one that I want to point out, is that the main ports of Argens-Minervois and Le Somail - where, according to map given to us by Le Boat we could have refueled with water and electricity - refused to moor us since they were full, we were therefore unable to refuel water and electricity for 3 whole days!! This meant that we could not use the bathrooms in our boat and could not wash the dishes, we were forced to eat out spending more money but even worse was the fact that we were forced to use the bathrooms and the shower in the bathrooms of the port (and pay €3,00 euro for each shower) and worse still had to go to the bathroom in the fields when we weren't near any port!!! But worst of all was the bitter surprise, once the trip was over, of having to pay an extra € 88.00 for having consumed more fuel than the € 250.00 already paid in advance, which Le Boat assured would be enough for the trip - the fuel was consumed in order to keep the boat turned on for recharging the batteries (in order to have light, fridge turned on, fans turned on as it was very hot, etc.) because otherwise we would not have had electricity, since the ports did not allow us to refuel electricity. We reported this to Le Boat but they did not return us the extra fuel money requested upon returning the boat. Therefore, in addition to the big inconvenience we also had to pay extra! Not at all fair!!I would also like to point out that the Italian site (leboat.it) invited us to pay RCA insurance, we paid for this during online booking, but once in France, we discovered at the Le Boat base in Homps that no one pays for this insurance and infact they didn't even know what it was!!! We had to pay for extra insurance.The route along the canal du midi passes through ghost towns where there is almost nothing to visit except for a couple of places. The bikes we rented are quite old as are the boats.Le Boat does not offer what it promises !!!!!
Poor quality boats, always breaking down very badly kept!
