Kayakomat Canada will be opening more Kayakomat self-serve kayak and SUP rental station across Canada this summer. We are looking for fun-loving entrepreneurs to operate this profitable franchise venture! Locations are available, please contact us!
KAYAKOMAT is a self-service rental kiosk, open for bookings 24 hours a day. Clients can rent your kayaks and stand-up paddleboards easily, smoothly, anytime, from anywhere.
How does it work?
The client goes on to the kayakomat.com website, books and pays online, reviews usage and safety instructions, then receives a code to unlock the unit of their choice. SUPs as well as solo and tandem sit-in and sit-on-top kayaks are available. All necessary equipment, including life jacket(s), paddle(s), spray skirt(s), etc is provided. Your rental fees are automatically deposited to your account. What could be simpler?
What are some of the advantages of operating a KAYAKOMAT?
- Proven, trusted, convenient online rental system.
- Your site will be put on the map world-wide through the KAYAKOMAT international kayak rental website.
- Alerts tourists planning visits in your area to YOUR location and rental availability.
- Extends your season to early morning and later evening rentals beyond the hours of a manned rental station.
- Leveraged internet visibility through KAYAKOMAT’s international advertising and social media optimization programs.
- Easy kiosk set up, no electricity or WIFI needed. Just a flat patch of ground is all that's needed!
- 24/7 booking availability to clients with no staff required.
- Bad weather? – no problem! Instant availability for rentals the moment the weather improves -- without staffing issues.
What does the operator do?
The operator needs to be available (by phone) to help clients with the occasional question about bookings, equipment etc. Aside from that, they only need to check on their station periodically (according to usage) to be sure the equipment is as it should be, clean and in place. This normally takes only a few hours a week even in the busy season.
Operator experience here and in Sweden has shown that in almost every case the initial investment required and running expenses are all covered in the first season's operation, with profit on the side. Theft and vandalism (a common question) have proven to be almost non-existent!
The system has been running successfully for some time in Sweden with over 80 successful stations, and is now being offered in several European countries and Canada.
Here are some reviews from delighted paddling clients here in Canada:
Michael on Google (5 stars) (July 14, 2022, 12:43 pm) "Amazing! New gem that's only an hour away from the city. Easy to book online and super affordable. The SUP and kayak we rented were brand new and loved that it came with lifejackets as some of us weren't too comfortable in the deep water. Would definitely do this again or maybe try the other location."
Ashley h on Google (5 stars) (August 15, 2022, 4:00 am) "It's really fun and easy to use. And its super convenient. And Twin lakes, where it's set up at, is a very beautiful lake to paddle at."
