If you want to spend a day speeding on the sea, a jet ski hire is the perfect choice for an adrenaline-filled holiday. Jet skis are great for a small group of up to two or three friends, or even for a solo trip. If you’re keen on exploring a small area and finding hidden coves or unspoilt beaches, jet skis are an ideal mode of transport as they are good for travelling short distances and because they are small, you get access to otherwise difficult-to-reach destinations.
The price of a jet ski hire varies considerably based on a number of factors such as time of year, how many people are on board and the destination of your hire. With most jet ski hires you’ll have the option to hire by the hour, by the day or in some cases, by week.
Generally speaking, a jet ski hire for two people costs about £169 per day in the low season and can rise to £339 per day in the high season.
There are so many beautiful places in the world, why not explore them with a jet ski hire? At Nautal we have a worldwide fleet to grant you access to some of the most amazing destinations on the planet. In Europe, Spain is a top destination for jet ski hires with many people flocking to the waters of Malaga, Marbella, Cadiz and the Balearic Islands like Ibiza and Formentera. If you fancy, you can explore the second-largest island in the Mediterranean with a jet ski hire in Sardinia, Italy or visit Croatia which is home to the sunniest spot in Europe, Split, Hvar. Other popular jet ski hire destinations include Buzios in Brazil and several places in Germany and France.
Whether you’re choosing to hire alone or with one or two friends, you’ll need to take into consideration the size of the seat to be sure that everyone can fit safely and comfortably. It is also compulsory in many countries to wear a life jacket while onboard a jet ski, so make sure to ask the owner if they are included in the price of the hire or if you will need to pay an additional fee. Each hire includes different amenities and some offer special amenities or equipment at an extra cost.
It’s also important to consider the weather since this is not a watercraft which is suitable for overnight and there is no shelter on board. The ideal weather for a jet ski hire is in hot weather, with little clouds and no precipitation. Because jet skis can reach higher speeds than many watercrafts, winds should also be taken into account and if you’re a beginner driver, we strongly advise against manoeuvring the vessel in bad weather or when there are many waves.
Finally, be sure to ask the owner where you should dock the jet ski if you are hiring overnight and keep in mind that they all have different storage compartments so you’ll want to pack everything you need for a full day on the water!
Due to our wide range of jet ski hires all over the world, each one is different in regards to price and what is included in the final cost. Some of the prices include tax, insurance and mooring base port fees, whereas some hires require you to pay these things as additional fees. Some jet skis include life jackets and driving classes for manoeuvring the vessel and others offer these options for an additional fee. In fact, if you want to use water toys like water skis, snorkelling equipment and a stand-up paddleboard, these things can usually be hired as extras to enhance your jet ski experience.
One additional cost that you should definitely keep in mind is fuel. Some owners require you to return the vessel with a full tank so be sure to ask the owner what is included in the price and inquire about additional fees.
