406 MHz Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) with GPS available for hire
A PLB is a device to assist in the location of a person carrying the beacon, in the event of an emergency. Note: A PLB is similar to, but does not meet the legal requirements of, an EPIRB. Where law requires that an EPIRB be carried, a PLB can not be carried instead of an EPIRB.
This is a service offered by adventurentals.com to people who:
- Own one or more PLBs that they would like to offer for hire; or
- Need to hire a PLB
How does it work?We try to match up people who need to hire a PLB with people who have them available for hire. We receive a modest fee per year from owners of PLBs for providing this service and forwarding the details of people interested in hiring a PLB. If an owner does not receive any enquiries about the hire of their PLB, we will refund our fee!
It is up to the owner and the hirer to agree price and terms, and the owner is responsible for updating the registration details of their beacon for the duration of the trip.
So what do I do?
People wanting to hire PLBsWhy tie up your money if you only need to use a PLB infrequently?
Email us the details of the trip you need a PLB for. If we know of anyone that has a beacon available for hire we will try to put you in contact with them.
You agree a fee with the owner of the PLB for the trip you have in mind. It is intended that this will compare favourably to commercial rates.
A deposit is usually payable just in case you need to activate the beacon or are unable to return it at the agreed time.
If we cannot find someone who has a beacon available for the duration of your trip we will offer you one of our beacons at a discount.
If you would like to find out more about renting a PLB, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
