When I rang Waterways Holidays, I spoke to a very nice woman called Heather. She was very helpful and answered my questions about hiring a boat. When I wanted to pay a deposit, she made sure the boat was available and called me back to take my booking. She also gave me some helpful tips about websites concerning the Norfolk Broads. We are now eagerly awaiting for our holiday on the Broads.

Your website has a flaw that must be losing you lots of business, and disappointing a lot of customers. The search page is well presented, but if as someone who hasn't yet decided what kind of break I'm looking for, I might well not put anything in the 'length of holiday' field. There's an option in there for 'All available', but it's at the bottom, and why would I go looking for an option that's basically 'unspecified'? If I don't pick one and click search, the response doesn't say 'You must pick from the list of options', it says 'Sorry.......no availability for your selected dates & location'!!!!! It took me a long time to work this out, others will have given up assuming all boats were booked. Please fix search so that I don't have to choose 'Show all', otherwise many people will miss out on the best holidays of their lives.
