What Will That $600 Tax Rebate Buy? How Does A Full Week Exploring Europe On Your Own Exclusive Canal Boat Sound?

That $600 per person tax rebate check from the government may not seem like a lot, but hereís a surprise: Thatís more than enough to buy a full week cruising the waterways of Europe on your own exclusive canal boat from European Boating Holidays (EBH). In fact, EBH charter rates put a seven-night fall vacation for you and a few friends or family well under $600 per person.

EBH has 29 bases located in the most appealing regions of France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy and Poland and a fleet of 400 boats ready to take you into the heart of Europe this year for as little as $350 per person for a one-week boating adventure.

"Europeans have long enjoyed self-drive boating as a convenient and affordable way to really immerse yourself in a particular area," says Diane Brenner, director of North American sales for EBH. "Traveling along the inland waterways in a Locaboat Penichette or Cardinal Europa provides a unique perspective on the life and sights of the places you visit and a unique way to experience Europe as Europeans do."

Many experienced travelers prefer to visit Europe from mid-September to the end of the boating season in November, when EBH offers its most attractive rates. The weather is still fine this time of year, and the popular sights and cities are less crowded than in the summer months.

If summer is your time to travel, EBH also is offering a limited-time 10% discount on seven-day boating vacations departing from any of the companyís bases on June 20, 21, or 23, July 4, 5, or 7 and August 15, 16, or 18.

"Thereís nothing quite like the romance of cruising in a boat just for the two of you on the canals and rivers and lakes of Europe," says Diane Brenner, director of sales and marketing for EBH in North American. "Couples can create their own personalized itinerary from any of our 29 bases and savor the places they discover along the way as long as they wish.
