Damage during the journey
Accident with another vessel
Should you have an accident with another traveller on the canal, please resolve it without involving the Göta Canal Company.
Should your vessel incur damage and you wish to claim compensation from the Göta Canal Company – claims will be adjusted by an insurance company – immediately contact the nearest lock host, who will contact their management.
You must remain at the site of the incident and provide your version of the events in writing on a damage report form. In general all travel on the canal is taken at the boat owner’s own risk. All vessels on the Göta Canal must at least have liability insurance.
