Booking arrangements
The booking chart works on a Priority System with each owner moving up one position in the booking order every year. For 2010 the share for sale will be No. 1 on the booking chart priority so the new owner will have the first choice of available weeks.

Purchase of the share entitles the new owner to three weeks use of the barge per annum. Two weeks in the High Season (April to September) and one week in the Low Season (October to March). There are often unused weeks remaining once all the owners have booked their holidays and these can be booked at no additional cost (except for any running costs incurred by the owner whilst on board the barge).
Special holiday arrangements
For those owners who have school age children and are restricted to school holidays the share can be converted to a Special Share for the payment of a small annual premium. This entitles the owner to have first choice of the available weeks on the booking chart provided they are within the British school holiday period.
