The thing you should keep in mind when you select a Houseboat


  • In the contract of the houseboat, they often mention terms that they should be notified of any medical condition that can impact the health and safety of the passenger or make them unfit to travel that includes pregnancies.
  • Research beforehand about the destination to know if you need to take any special medical precautions.
  • The passenger with medical concerns should be careful when they decide on a particular houseboat
  • Make sure that the service provider has good reviews and is a specialist in dealing with disabilities if you are travelling with a family member who has disabilities.
  • Remember to opt for travel insurance as comprehensive travel insurance policies cover situations like medical evacuation, travel accident or illness coverage, return of mortal remains and travel assistance.
  • Notify the houseboat rental company about special requests beforehand like special diets, wheelchair accessible cabins, etc.
  • Each passenger should have the name and phone numbers for his primary and specialist physicians, and they should also carry their latest medical records.
  • Inform the houseboat rental company if you have any food allergies so that you and your family don’t have to fall prey to any type of allergies on board.
