What is the difference between commission and service charges? What are they for?

A service charge and a commission are applied to each charter.

The service charge is payable by the tenant and represents a very small percentage of the total charter amount. 

The commission, on the other hand, is paid by the owner. The commission is a percentage of the rate displayed on the website. This percentage depends on the agreements made between Click&Boat and the owner.

The rate displayed on the site (the price paid by the tenant) therefore corresponds to the charter rate, including commission.

These fees are Click&Boat's income and allow us to provide all the services that you as a user enjoy.

They are used to : 

  • Develop the platform and the application, improving the quality of our tools every year thanks to the many developers who work on the site and the application
  • Pay the support teams for bookings and listing management, who are available 7 days a week during the high season and communicate in 5 different languages
  • Paying for bank transaction fees and text messaging
  • Pay for offices and running costs
  • Pay for advertising costs that give us worldwide visibility. They allow owners to be visible to hundreds of thousands of renters, but also allow renters to have access to thousands of boats

Click&Boat is a French company that pays its VAT and charges in France. By creating more than a hundred new jobs in 2022, and by giving dozens of young people the opportunity to have their first experience in a company every year, Click&Boat is contributing to the dynamism of employment.
