The accommodation requirements of those in the shipping industry are clear. Proximately to the port is essential, as is the ability to stay for the short periods of time (often only one night) needed to cover the gap between journeys offshore.
The shipping industry has to work around the tides and this can cause a certain amount of hassle and aggravation when trying to book accommodation, as many providers make it difficult to cancel a stay at short notice. At Rapid Accommodation, if you need to cancel, this will all be handled by our team of experts.
As well as flexibility, we can organise accommodation that meets any other criteria that you might have. In the shipping industry, we typically find accommodation for both the captain and crew of a ship, as this solves many of the logistically challenges that face these teams.
