The New “Trip Buddy” Program
Freedom Boat Club hosts special events each month at our club locations for our members, many of whom enjoy meeting other boaters and socializing together.
What we’ve learned from focus groups is that many of our members also want opportunities to meet and boat with other members. In Naples, for example, several of our members like to fish together. One of our members will make a reservation and invite other members to join him. The next time, another will do the same. This group has become ‘fishing buddies.’
To help facilitate similar opportunities, we developed the Trip Buddy feature within our reservation system wherein members can post ‘open seats’ for their upcoming outing. It’s been a hit already!
We love making boating fun … and now, that includes the Trip Buddy to make it easy to hook up with other members!
