Greetings and welcome to the first Zizoo blog post! We are so excited to get our blog going! Our intention is to provide you and everyone who wants to become part of our sailing lovers community, with fun and useful info about boating holidays. All suggestions for the topics you’d like to read about are more than welcome! So lets get started with answers on two questions we’re continuously coming across: “Why would I rent a boat on Zizoo?” and “How can I do it?”
So, how does it work? All you need for arranging a sailing holiday from your dreams are 3 simple steps:
1) Find a holiday destination
Type in a dream destination and pick a boat that suits your needs. You will have real photos, reviews and destination-specific information to help you make your decision.
2) Make a booking
Send a booking request to your top choice and receive a reply within 24 hours. If you have specific questions or want to contact several charters at once, just use our easy messaging system to send your queries.
3) Confirm payment
Once you have all the information and have submitted a booking request, you will either be charged directly through your credit card or will have 5 days to make a bank transfer. This only applies to the initial 50% – you can pay the rest 30 days before arrival by whichever method you chose.
Why holidayers love Zizoo and why you will too?
The answer on this question is really simple. Zizoo opens up marine tourism to experienced sailors and newbies alike who want to explore the world and have an amazing holiday experience on the sea! Millions of people want to spend some relaxing or exciting time on a yacht, but are unable to do so for different reasons. Whether it’s due to a limited choice of rental boats in their area, or because owning a boat is simply too expensive, access to boats has been difficult for many. Zizoo makes boat holidays safer, more accessible and affordable.
If you’re still not convinced, here are some facts that proves the above:
