Today we launched our first of many feature enhancements to allow anyone around the world to rent boats using GetmyBoat.com. Before today, we only allowed boat owners and rental companies to publish their listing if they had an address in the United States. Because of this limitation, renters could only search for boat rentals within the U.S.
We are pleased to announce with today’s enhancements, that now any boat owner or company in the world can add their listing to GetMyBoat. We have updated the address fields in the form to allow users with international addresses to list their boats and rental companies with us.
To help speed up the entry of your address, we have also implemented autosuggest functionality to prefill information when adding your city. Once you start typing in your city name, options will appear in a drop down field. Select the desired option and we will prefill the State/Province and the Country field. How easy is that! All you will need to do is fill out the street address and the Zip/Postal Code.
The search feature will function the same as it currently does, with the exception that you can now enter a location from anywhere in the world. We will still present you with suggested options in the drop down, which if selected, will activate the search.
While we may not have many boats or rental companies listed in your area now, we at least let you search there! Don’t worry; we will soon be adding boats all over the world and filling up as many locations as we can. If you have a friend with an idle boat, send them our way to get that boat added to the community.
If there are any features or enhancements that you would like to see made to GetMyBoat, just drop us a line at email@example.com.
