Looking to rent out your boat hassle-free? WetRentals has got you covered! We provide an all-in-one platform for advertising, bookings, customer service, and everything in between. All you need is a boat and a bank account to start renting out your boat with ease.
The Secure Experience
At WetRentals, we prioritize the safety and security of our users. Once your boat is listed, renters are required to complete ID verification and pay with a credit card. The total amount is charged to the renter's credit card at the time of booking and held until the rental is completed. Additionally, if a damage deposit is set, the renter's card will be charged 24 hours prior to the rental start date to cover any damages.

Who is WetRentals?
WetRentals is an Ottawa-based company that initially started by renting Sea-Doos and delivering them directly to clients. After quickly gaining popularity in eastern Ontario, we decided to pivot to a rental platform for all types of boats. Check out our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages to learn more about us.

As the host, you have complete control over your damage deposits at WetRentals. The renter's damage deposit is charged 24 hours before the rental and released 48 hours after the rental period. This gives you ample time to inspect your boat for any damages. With our app, you can do a walk-around, take photos, and track the gas level and any damages when you drop off and pick up your boat. In the unlikely event of any damages, simply fill out a damage claim, and the renter's deposit will be automatically held until a professional repair quote is obtained. This ensures a secure and hassle-free experience for boat hosts.
At WetRentals, we prioritize the safety and security of our boat hosts. To ensure that our renters are verified, we have partnered with Veriff, a leading ID verification company. When a user signs up to rent a boat, they must upload a photo of a government-issued ID along with a selfie. Veriff's AI verifies that the selfie matches the ID photo and runs a basic background check. If all checks pass, the user is verified on WetRentals and can proceed to book. We do not allow unverified renters to book using our platform, giving you peace of mind that you are renting to a verified user. We take renter verification very seriously, and our partnership with Veriff helps to ensure a secure and trustworthy experience for all of our users.
Credit Limit Checks
At WetRentals, we aim to make the rental process as smooth and efficient as possible for both boat hosts and renters. When a renter requests to rent your boat, we fully pre-authorize the total rental amount on their credit card. This ensures that the renter has the necessary funds to rent from you and eliminates any unnecessary rental requests. As a result, 80% of rental inquiries translate into actual rentals, maximizing your earnings potential as a boat host. If you deny the rental, the renter's money will be returned to them promptly. We believe that this pre-authorization system provides an added layer of security and transparency for both parties and helps to ensure a hassle-free rental experience.
You have the final say
At WetRentals, we believe that boat hosts should have full control over who rents their boats. That's why we give hosts the final say on whether they want to rent to a potential renter or not. While communicating with renters, hosts have the option to vet and ask questions as needed. If the host sees anything they don't like, they can simply deny the booking request, and the renter's pre-authorized payment will be returned. We understand how much your boat means to you, and we want to ensure that you have the final say in who gets to rent it. Additionally, we allow hosts to send their own contracts and waivers as long as they are in line with our terms of service. This gives hosts the flexibility to include any specific terms or conditions they may require, while still providing a secure and streamlined rental process for both parties.
At WetRentals, we do not directly provide insurance for boat hosts, but we work with rental brokers who can help you obtain insurance coverage. Although insurance is not mandatory, we strongly encourage all boat hosts to obtain some form of boating insurance to protect themselves against any potential liability. Our extensive network of rental brokers can provide hosts with the lowest insurance options available. On average, our hosts pay an additional $400 per year for rental insurance, which is equivalent to approximately 1.4 rentals. To get a quote, simply fill out the insurance form in your host portal today! We believe that obtaining insurance coverage is an essential step in ensuring a safe and secure rental experience for both boat hosts and renters.
