Typical Kerala Houseboat Prices

Prices vary across the season for cruises. Luxury boats are more expensive than superior boats as you would expect. Each cabin sleeps two people. For luxury category, price can vary from boat to boat as each boat tends to be very different.

We have provided some indicative foreign currency prices (UK Sterling, US Dollar and the Euro), but these are really indicative only as the India Rupee is very volatile, but it gives you a sense. These rates are for prebooked boats rather than spot tariffs. A spot tariff is when you simply turn up at a jetty to haggle with the boat owners in person.

Haggling on the Day

The advantage of the haggle approach is that you can play the boats off against each other to get to the best rate. There are some disadvantages as well: they do this for a living so they are champion hagglers; they trade off prices with the cruise so that if they offer a low rate, they will curtail the cruise in some way to reduce the cost to themselves, for example the AC stops in the middle of the night or they cruise a much shorter distance to save on the cost of petrol; they won't have fresh food aboard so you run a greater risk of food problems. Finally the best boats don't work like this: they have separate quieter jetties and they work on prebooking.

Typical Day

These rates are for an overnight cruise which starts around midday and finishes at about 10 am next morning. Rates for longer cruises are not simple multiples, but it is confusing to show them here. You can see them on our cruises pages.
