Holiday Lessees are obliged to comply with the agreement and the rules and regulations specified in the accompanying Information. Holiday Lessees must ensure that any Joint Holiday Lessees and/or Third Parties visiting and/or staying with them comply with the agreement and the rules and regulations specified in the Information.

The Operator will assume that Holiday Lessees enter into the agreement with the agreement of their spouse, if applicable.

The agreement will terminate by operation of law upon expiry of the agreed period without any notice of termination being required.

3. APPLICABILITY OF THE GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

These General Terms and Conditions apply to all reservations and agreements concluded between the Operator and the Holiday Lessee in regard of the rental of Accommodations that are not season or permanent pitches. This includes in any case, though not exclusively, the stay in the park and the use of the Accommodation and Facilities, unless other regulations apply specifically.

As a member of RECRON, the Operator is obliged to comply with the RECRON Regulations. The RECRON Regulations (or at least their purpose and tenor) that apply to Holiday Accommodations and Camping have been included in the General Terms and Conditions and supplemented with a number of conditions that apply specifically to the situation of Roompot Parcs.

The General Terms and Conditions have been published on the website of Roompot Parcs.

In addition to these General Terms and Conditions, the supplementary rules and regulations of the relevant Park Regulations apply equally to the agreement, as well as the Regulations for Groups and/or Specific Situations. Both Regulations belong to and form an integral part of these General Terms and Conditions. Guests are also obliged to observe the supplementary rules and regulations that apply to their park specifically.

The Regulations for Groups and/or Specific Situations have been attached to these General Terms and Conditions as Appendix 1.

All Regulations are available at each park and will be sent to the Holiday Lessee upon request. The Regulations have also been published on the website of Roompot Parcs.

All Guests are obliged to comply with the General Terms and Conditions, the Park Regulations and – if applicable – the Regulations for Groups and/or Specific Situations and additionally with the supplementary rules and regulations that apply to each park individually. They are obliged to strictly observe the rules and regulations and follow any instructions given by the Operator’s staff, regardless of form and/or context.

Holiday Lessees are obliged to ensure that all persons travelling with them and their Guests take cognisance of these rules and regulations, and are responsible for their observance.

The Operator reserves the right to make interim changes to the General Terms and Conditions and/or Regulations.

The Operator does not accept any other terms and conditions referred to or used by the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee (or a Guest).

If the agreement concerns a Care Arrangement and care is provided by a care provider, the care provider (i.e., not the Operator) will act as the counterparty for the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee with respect to the services and care provided.

If the agreement has been concluded with one of the Reisbureau parks, the Reisbureau park (i.e., not the Operator) will be the counterparty for the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee with respect to the package booked.

4. RESERVATIONS/DISCOUNTS/PAYMENTS

Reservations

Reservations can be booked exclusively by persons above the age of 21 (the Holiday Lessee). The Operator is entitled at all times to order a Guest to produce legally valid proof of identity (or a copy thereof). Provision of incorrect names and/or addresses and/or other important personal details can lead to immediate termination of the agreement and eviction from the park, without prejudice to the Operator’s right to claim payment of the Total Sum.

The Operator reserves the right at all times to refuse a reservation without stating reasons.

Holiday Lessees may take out optional weather and/or cancellation insurance when booking their holiday accommodations. The premium for these insurances can vary from park to park. Parks in Germany offer only cancellation insurance

Booking receipts can be sent by post on request.

The Operator must be notified within ten days of the date stated on the booking receipt and before the arrival date if the Holiday Lessee deems the information on the booking receipt to be incorrect. Once this term has expired an appeal in regard of incorrect details can no longer be submitted and the confirmation will be deemed to be correct.

Holiday Lessees who have not received written confirmation within 14 days of their reservation are obliged to contact the Operator’s central reservation service immediately, in default of which no appeal can be made in regard of the reservation. The agreement between the parties will not be effective until the reservation has been confirmed by the Operator.

The Holiday Lessee will receive information and directions by post approximately ten days before arrival. If the reservation has been made within five days before the arrival date, this information will be provided at reception.

The Operator will charge an Administrative Fee for the reservation of an Accommodation, including a preference surcharge, if applicable. The amount of this fee will be specified by the Operator in advance.

Groups

a. The Head of a Central Reservation Service must at all times be notified prior to the booking of a reservation for a Group. Based on the nature, purpose and size of the Group, this person may decide to refuse the booking (in a specific period or Accommodation).

b. If the reservation concerns a Group of Unaccompanied Minors, the Holiday Lessee is obliged at all times to specify this of his or her own accord. Unaccompanied Minors are admitted exclusively to a limited number of Accommodations and/or parks.

c. Groups are required to register in writing. A Holiday Lessee booking a stay for Joint Holiday Lessees under the age of 21 is obliged to accompany the Group at all times. Upon discovery that this Holiday Lessee has not arrived with the Group or has left prematurely, for whatever reason, the Group will be regarded as Unaccompanied Minors and treated as such, in accordance with these General Terms and Conditions and the Regulations for Groups and/or Specific Situations as specified herein.

d. If notification has not been made prior to booking a reservation that this concerns a Group reservation, or if the Group does not meet any of the other conditions applicable to Groups, the Operator will be entitled to refuse the Group admittance upon arrival without restitution of the Total Sum. This applies equally and in full if the stay has already commenced.

e. The Operator pursues a supplementary policy with regard to Groups and/or Specific Situations as a measure to prevent damage or nuisance. This policy is set out in the Regulations for Groups and/or Specific Situations (Appendix 1), which form an integral part of these General Terms and Conditions and apply, as such, to the agreement in full. The Regulations for Groups and/or Specific Situations cover such items as payment of a supplementary Deposit (upon arrival at the park), the stipulation of a contractual penalty and the provision of a list of the names of all the members of the Group. The Operator may, where appropriate, decide to deviate from this policy and set additional conditions.

Discounts

f. Any discounts must be mentioned immediately upon booking a reservation. Settlement or restitution after this will not be possible.

g. Discounts do not apply to special package deals, unless explicitly stated otherwise.

h. Special package deals and discounts apply exclusively to a limited number of Accommodations.

i. Discounts may not be combined, unless explicitly stated otherwise.

Add-ons

j. Added food cheques are placed on the “VakantieCard”, allowing you to spend as you wish until you reach your balance limit. The VakantieCard will be sent to you in advance of your holiday. You are free to use any balance remaining on your VakantieCard during your next Roompot holiday. This food credit is valid for five years after the date of issue. You can find the date of issue of your food credit on myroompot.com.

If you have booked any additional food and drink vouchers at one of the parks mentioned below, you will receive your vouchers in notes that are each worth €12,50: Bayernpark Grafenau, Marinapark Volendam and Zeeland Village. Add-ons in the form of food and drink vouchers must be submitted directly when checking into the park and can be used exclusively at the food and beverage outlets of Roompot Parcs Campsites, Camping Resorts and Parks. This food credit is valid for five years after the date of issue. No refunds, in cash or otherwise, apply to vouchers and any unused vouchers cannot be returned.

Cancellation

k. In the event of a cancellation, the Holiday Lessee shall owe a fee to the Operator. This fee amounts to:

  • 15% of the Total Sum if the reservation is cancelled more than three months prior to the date of arrival
  • 50% of the Total Sum if the reservation is cancelled between two and three months prior to the date of arrival
  • 75% of the Total Sum if the reservation is cancelled between one and two months prior to the date of arrival
  • 90% of the Total Sum if the reservation is cancelled within one month prior to the date of arrival
  • 100% of the Total Sum if the reservation is cancelled on the date of arrival

l. The cancellation fee will be refunded on a pro rata basis after deduction of the Administration Fees, if the Accommodation is reserved by a third party in the name of the Holiday Lessee and with written permission from the Operator, for the same period or part of this period and the Total Sum, plus the Deposit, has been received by the Operator from this third party.

Payment

m. The Holiday Lessee is obliged to pay in euros, unless agreed otherwise, with due observation of the agreed payment terms.

n. Fifty per cent of the Booking Total plus the Administration Fee, including any preference surcharge and/or insurance costs, must be paid within 15 days after booking the reservation.

The remainder of the Total Sum plus the Deposit must be paid no later than eight weeks prior to the day of arrival.

Any costs incurred during the stay must be paid prior to departure.

o. If the reservation is booked within eight weeks prior to the day of arrival, the entire invoice amount must be paid immediately.

p. Amounts that have not been transferred to the account of the Operator upon arrival at the park must be paid immediately upon arrival.

q. If a Touring Pitch has been reserved more than six weeks before the arrival date and the Holiday Lessee, despite a prior written reminder, has failed to fulfil his or her payment obligation, in full or in part, within a term of two weeks after the written reminder, the Operator will be entitled to terminate the agreement with immediate effect, without prejudice to its right to claim full payment of the agreed price;

r. If a Touring Pitch has been reserved six weeks or less before the arrival date and the Holiday Lessee has failed to fulfil his or her payment obligations in due time, in full or in part, the agreement will be terminated by law, in which case the Holiday Lessee will owe the Operator a cancellation fee in accordance with Article 4(p) (Cancellation) of these General Terms and Conditions. The Operator is obliged to inform the Holiday Lessee prior to the reservation of the consequences of failure to fulfil the payment obligations in due time.

s. If a Holiday Lessee has hired an Accommodation and, despite a prior written reminder, fails to fulfil his or her payment obligation, in full or in part, within a term of two weeks following the written reminder, the Operator will be entitled to terminate the agreement with immediate effect, without prejudice to its right to claim full payment of the agreed price.

  • If the Operator has not yet received the total amount owed on the day of arrival, it will be entitled to refuse the Holiday Lessee admittance to the grounds, without prejudice to the Operator's right to claim full payment of the agreed price.
  •  All reasonable extrajudicial costs incurred by the Operator after issuing the notice of default will be borne by the Holiday Lessee. If the total amount is not paid in due time following a written demand for payment, statutory interest will be charged over the amount still outstanding.

5. PRICES AND CHANGES IN PRICE

The price, or Total Sum, is agreed in accordance with the prevailing rates as set down by the Operator.

If, after the price has been fixed, the Operator incurs additional costs as a result of a rise in prices and/or taxes that are directly relevant to the Accommodation, the Mobile Lodging Structure or the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee, these additional costs may be charged on to the Holiday Lessee, regardless of whether the agreement has already been concluded.

All prices listed in the magazine and on the website are in euros and include VAT at the applicable rate. Rental prices do not include tourist tax, other taxes and/or levies, Administrative Fees and other surcharges (whether or not imposed by the government), unless explicitly stated otherwise. The amount of local taxes and the extent to which they are owed will vary according to the location of the park.

The rental price or camping fee for parks with a covered or outdoor swimming pool or swimming paradise will in many cases include the entrance fee to these Facilities. The Roompot Parcs magazine and website list the Facilities included in the price per park.

6. AMENDMENTS OR ADDITIONS TO THE AGREEMENT

If the Holiday Lessee wishes to make any Amendments to the agreement after it has been concluded, the Operator will be at liberty to determine the extent to which such Amendments will be accepted.

If the Operator is willing to accept an Amendment, it will be entitled to charge an amendment fee up to a maximum of € 17.50 per Amendment. This amendment fee will not be charged if the Amendment concerns an add-on, extension or switch to a more expensive booking period or Accommodation.

If a switch is made to a cheaper booking period or Accommodation, the original Total Sum will still be owed.

A change in Accommodation is only possible within the RP Holiday parks and insofar as availability permits, with due observance of these General Terms and Conditions.

In principle, an addition to an agreement already concluded is possible, insofar as this does not constitute an Amendment, with due observance of these General Terms and Conditions. The Operator will not charge any costs for the registration of such additions. The costs incurred for the Addition itself will however be charged, such as the cost of hiring bed linen or children’s furniture.

In principle, a stay can always be extended if availability permits. The Operator is entitled at all times to refuse a request for an extension.

Amendments and additions can be requested in the same manner as a reservation is made. Please refer to the provisions of Article 3.

If the Operator is unable to fulfil the agreement, in part or in full, owing to circumstances beyond its control, the Operator will submit a proposal to the Holiday Lessee for an Amendment. This proposal may be rejected. The Holiday Lessee is deemed to have accepted the proposal if he or she does not reject the proposal in writing within 14 days after the date stated on the proposal. The Operator will not be held liable for restitution of any loss.

7. ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE

Arrival

Accommodations are available from 3 p.m. onwards on the arrival date. The travel information sent to the Holiday Lessee includes information about the arrival times. Times may vary from park to park.

Holiday Lessees are expected to inform Reception if they are unable to arrive in time.

If the Holiday Lessee has not arrived within 24 hours of the agreed date without contacting the park, this will be considered a Cancellation.

a. As a general rule, Holiday Lessees and Joint Holiday Lessees must leave the Accommodation before 10 a.m. on the departure date. Times may vary from park to park and for campsites. Each park will notify its guests of these times.

b. Holiday Lessees who leave early will nevertheless owe the full amount agreed for the agreed booking period.

Early termination by the Operator and an order to vacate the premises in the event of a culpable shortcoming and/or unlawful act.

c. The Operator is entitled to terminate the agreement with immediate effect:

In the event of failure on the part of the Holiday Lessee, Joint Holiday Lessee(s) and/or Third Parties to satisfy, in full or in part, the obligations arising from the agreement, the General Terms and Conditions and regulations, the accompanying Information and/or government regulations and/or to follow the instructions of the Security Staff and other staff in the employment of or working on behalf of the Operator, despite prior warning or written notice, to such an extent that it cannot be expected of the Operator, in accordance with the standards of reasonableness and fairness, to continue the agreement;

  • If a Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee and/or Guest, despite prior warning (written or otherwise), causes nuisance to the Operator and/or Joint Holiday Lessees and/or Guests or disrupts the pleasant atmosphere on or in the direct vicinity of the park grounds
  • If a Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee and/or Guest uses the Accommodation for purposes contrary to its intended purpose, despite prior warning (written or otherwise)
  • If the Mobile Lodging Structure of a Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee and/or Guest fails to satisfy recognised safety standards
  • If, in the opinion of the Operator, the Operator is at risk of suffering loss or damage in the event the agreement is continued

d. If the Operator wishes to effect early termination of the agreement and eviction from the premises, the Holiday Lessee must be personally presented a letter which informs the Holiday Lessee that he or she is entitled to submit an appeal to the Disputes Committee and must state the term within which the appeal is to be submitted, as defined in Article 15 of these Terms and Conditions. In urgent cases, a warning (written or otherwise) can be omitted.

e. After the agreement has been terminated the Holiday Lessee will leave the Accommodation and the park premises, taking along all of his or her personal possessions, as soon as possible and no later than within the time limit specified. In such a case the rules and regulations for leaving the Accommodation in good condition remain in full force.

f. The Holiday Lessee will, in principle, be held to pay the Total Sum.

g. If the Accommodation is a Touring Pitch which the Holiday Lessee fails to vacate, the Operator will be entitled to vacate the plot under the following conditions.

h. Following a written demand and with due observance of a term of seven days commencing on the date of receipt, the Operator will be entitled to vacate the plot at the expense of the Holiday Lessee, without prejudice to the provisions of Sections g and h. Any storage costs, within reason, will be borne by the Holiday Lessee.

i. In such a case, the Holiday Lessee is obliged to compensate the Operator for damages, which damages will in any case comprise a loss of profit arising from the inability to make the plot available to another person, and additionally to compensate the Operator for damages it has to pay to any other Holiday Lessee arising from the unavailability of that Holiday Lessee’s Touring Pitch as a result of the former Holiday Lessee’s failure to vacate the plot.

j. The provisions stipulated under k and l remain in full force if the Holiday Lessee fails to leave the Touring Pitch on the last day of the agreed rental period in a vacant and perfectly clean condition.

8. THE ACCOMMODATION, PARK AND FACILITIES

General

Rights may only be derived from the property, room or plot number on the reservation/confirmation if the preference surcharge has been paid as specified on the reservation and/or confirmation. The Operator reserves the right not to honour the request for a preference.

In the unlikely event that the property, room or plot number specified on the booking receipt is unavailable, a suitable alternative will be offered.

The artist impressions/photos © on the website and in the magazine provide the most truthful representation possible of the actual Accommodation. No rights may, however, be derived from these.

The Operator reserves the right to reserve a plot of land to be occupied exclusively for special camping offers. These plots will not be available for single-night reservations while the special offer is in effect.

Use

Rented Accommodations may never be inhabited as primary residences. Guests are obliged to have a permanent place of residence elsewhere. Availability or unavailability of a permanent place of residence falls under the responsibility of a Guest and can never be held against the Operator.

Using the rented Accommodation for any purpose other than its intended recreational purpose is prohibited.

The rented Accommodation may not be made available to third parties without the prior written permission of the Operator. The Operator is entitled to grant permission subject to specific conditions that must be laid down in writing.

It is not permitted to use the Accommodation for more persons than it was furnished to accommodate. In deviation from this rule, some parks permit the maximum number of persons in an Accommodation to be extended by one or two children up to the age of three. The Accommodations have not been furnished to accommodate this as standard. Holiday Lessees wishing to bring additional guests under the age of three must state their intention upon registration. The Operator will then notify the Holiday Lessee whether the request can be honoured.

In principle, children's furniture can be hired. However, not every Accommodation is suitable for the placement of such additional furniture. The rent of additional children’s furniture must be specified upon registration.

Cleaning/maintenance

The Accommodation is delivered to the Holiday Lessee and/or Joint Holiday Lessee in a clean condition. The Accommodation must be vacated at the end of the stay in accordance with the provisions specified on the information card or on the cleaning card in the Accommodation’s service set and/or in accordance with other Information provided to the Holiday Lessee and/or Joint Holiday Lessee.

The Holiday Lessee and/or Joint Holiday Lessee must notify park reception immediately or at least within two hours after arrival if, in their opinion, the Accommodation was not delivered in impeccable or complete condition upon arrival. If such notification is not made, or not made in due time, no appeal can be made concerning an alleged deficiency in regard of the Accommodation.

The Operator is obliged to maintain the recreation area and the shared facilities in good condition.

During the term of the agreement, Guests are obliged to maintain their Accommodation and its direct vicinity in the same condition in which they found it upon arrival.

Holiday Lessees, Joint Holiday Lessees and/or Guests are not permitted to dig on the park grounds, to cut down trees, to prune bushes, to install antennas, to put up fences or other property dividers and/or to erect building structures or other facilities, regardless of their nature, adjacent to, on, under (in the case of Mobile Lodging Structures) or around the Accommodation or to perform any other activity of a similar nature without the prior written consent of the Operator.

Holiday Lessees will at all times bear responsibility for ensuring the mobility of their Mobile Lodging Structures.

The Operator reserves the right to charge the Holiday Lessee and Joint Holiday Lessee additional cleaning and other costs if the Accommodation has not been used properly and/or not been vacated in a proper condition.

If a final cleaning by the Operator has been booked (mandatory at some parks, and if pets are staying at the Accommodation), this does not include washing the dishes, collecting the bed linen and towels and depositing the rubbish in the designated rubbish bins. These activities are to be performed by the Holiday Lessee.

The Operator, or another party acting on its behalf, reserves the right to start cleaning or other activities around the Accommodation at 8 a.m.

Maintenance and other work may need to be performed in the park or to the Accommodation during the stay, without this leading to any entitlement to compensation. The Operator will make every effort to avoid or minimise disturbance.

The Operator, or a party acting on its behalf, is always authorised to enter a Holiday Accommodation for inspection and/or maintenance purposes, without entitling the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee to a full or partial refund of the rental or other amounts paid or due. Furthermore, the Operator is authorised to temporarily decommission buildings and systems for maintenance purposes, without entitling the Guest to a full or partial refund of the rental or other amounts paid or due.

Placement of additional Mobile Lodging Structures

It is not permitted to place a Mobile Lodging Structure in the vicinity of a Holiday Accommodation. Mobile Lodging Structures may only be positioned on designated campsites and only after a reservation has been made for this purpose.

Multiple Mobile Lodging Structures can be permitted to occupy a single pitch, depending on the Accommodation, the dimensions of the Mobile Lodging Structures and/or the park. The Operator reserves the right to charge additional costs per Mobile Lodging Structure.

Facilities and organisation of the grounds

Not all park Facilities and food and beverage outlets are open all year round. The Operator reserves the right to make changes to the set-up and opening hours of the Facilities in and around the parks.

To prevent damage arising from frost, all taps and washing-up kitchens/sanitary units on the campsites will be closed in the winter period (from November to March). Guests will be able to make use of the open restroom facilities.

The Operator explicitly reserves the right to make changes to the set-up and organisation of the grounds and the properties and Accommodation(s) on these grounds.

9. RULES IN THE PARK/PARK REGULATIONS/REGULATIONS FOR GROUPS AND/OR SPECIFIC SITUATIONS

a. Every park has its own house rules (e.g. the Park Regulations) with supplementary rules regarding a stay in the park and the use of the Facilities.

b. Violation of the General Terms and Conditions and/or the Park Regulations and/or the Regulations for Groups and/or Specific Situations (and the supplementary rules that apply to individual parks) and additionally any failure to follow the instructions of Security Staff and other staff employed by the Operator or working on the Operator’s behalf may lead to the expulsion from the park of the entire group (Family or Group), who will be denied access to the park without any right to a refund of the Total Sum.

  • A warning will generally be issued first. In cases deemed urgent by the Operator a warning may be omitted and the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee and/or Guest concerned will be removed from the park immediately and denied further access to the park. In such cases an initial warning may be omitted. The Operator reserves the right to charge an additional Deposit per person upon arrival at the park or after a warning (initial or subsequent) has been issued.
  • Depending on the seriousness of the violation, but in any case after a second violation, the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee will be fined a sum of € 50 per person that can be settled with the Deposit (if applicable), without prejudice to the Operator’s right to charge the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee additional compensation for damages. In the event of a second or very serious violation, the Operator is entitled to expel the entire Group (or Family) from the park and deny access to the park to all persons specified in the agreement.
  • In principle, the penalty regulation with regard to the above applies to the entire group, even if only part of the group has acted in violation of the regulations.

10. LEGISLATION AND REGULATIONS

Campsites

The Holiday Lessee will ensure at all times that his or her Mobile Lodging Structure satisfies all environmental and safety requirements, with regard to both its interior and exterior, that are (and may be) imposed with regard to the Mobile Lodging Structure by government legislation or by the Operator within the context of environmental measures for the Operator’s business.

The Operator is obliged to comply with the provisions of the EFCO Charter entitled ‘Management of External Risks on Camping Sites’. The Charter can be consulted on the publicly accessible section of the RECRON website.

LPG installations are only permitted on the site if they are installed inside motor vehicles that have been approved by the Government Road Transport Agency.

If a Holiday Lessee is required to take precautionary measures by virtue of municipal fire department regulations, such as ensuring the ready availability of an approved fire extinguisher, the Holiday Lessee will be required to strictly comply with these regulations.

Holiday Accommodations

The Operator will ensure at all times that the Holiday Accommodation, with regard to both its interior and exterior, satisfies all environmental and safety regulations that are (and may be) imposed on Holiday Accommodations by government legislation.

Holiday Lessees are obliged to strictly observe all safety regulations that apply on the park. They will also ensure that Joint Holiday Lessees and/or Third Parties visiting or staying with them also strictly observe the safety and other regulations that apply on the park.

11. PETS

Some parks allow pets and others do not. Relevant information can be found in the park information on the website or in the magazine. The Operator reserves the right to amend its policy with regard to pets per park and to refuse pets access to a park. Pets belonging to visitors are not admitted to any park at all.

In a number of parks pets are only allowed to stay in a limited number of specially furnished Accommodations. Special conditions apply to these Accommodations that may vary from park to park.

If pets are allowed, a maximum number will apply (one or two pets), depending on the park or the Accommodation.

Notification of the intention to bring a pet must be made when booking a reservation; the pets must be reported upon arrival. Once a reservation has been booked as being without pets, a pet cannot be registered afterwards.

There are costs associated with non-caged pets. These costs will be invoiced together with the other costs.

Holiday Lessees and Joint Holiday Lessees are responsible for observing all statutory requirements associated with bringing pets along on a stay at a holiday park.

Dogs and cats are required to wear a flea collar and be free of all pests and parasites.

If a pet is staying at a Holiday Accommodation, the booking of a final cleaning by the Operator is mandatory.

12. LIABILITY

a. The Operator does not accept any liability whatsoever for:

  1. Accidents, theft, loss or damage, of whatever nature, during or arising from a stay at the parks and/or in the Accommodations or the Facilities offered. This liability extends to items left behind at the park or in the Accommodation by Guests

c. If the Accommodation is a Touring Pitch, the Holiday Lessee is responsible for disruptions in the part of the utilities services calculated from the customer connection point, save in cases of force majeure.

d. The Holiday Lessee indemnifies the Operator against all claims for damages by Third Parties that are attributable, in part or in their entirety, to any act or omission on the part of the Holiday Lessee and/or his or her fellow travellers and/or other Guests who are in the park at the invitation of or on behalf of the Holiday Lessee.

e. Holiday Lessees, Joint Holiday Lessees and/or their Guests are severally liable for all damage to the Operator and/or any Third Party arising directly or indirectly from their stay at the park. This includes, but is not restricted to, damage arising from acts or omissions attributable to these persons themselves or to Third Parties who are in the park at their invitation and/or damage caused by any pets and/or items for which they are responsible. Damage must always be reported to park reception immediately by the Holiday Lessee, Joint Holiday Lessee and/or his or her Guests and compensated for directly, unless it can be demonstrated that neither of these parties can be blamed for the damage.

f. If Holiday Lessees, Joint Holiday Lessees and/or their Guests have in any way caused damage to the Operator or the Operator’s Guests (or to their property) and/or caused or were involved in a disturbance and/or have misbehaved in any other way at the Operator’s park and/or acted in violation of the applicable regulations and/or standards and/or behaved or acted in a way that, in the opinion of the Operator, is contrary to its own or any Third Party’s interests, the Operator may decide that these persons are no longer welcome at the parks owned or managed by the Operator and may at all times deny such persons access to any and all of these parks without rendering the Operator liable for compensation.

g. If Holiday Lessees, Joint Holiday Lessees and/or their Guests as referred to in the previous section are nevertheless in any way involved in a reservation for which a definitive or non-definitive confirmation and/or invoice was issued, by the fully automatic processing program or otherwise, and/or if such persons attempt to gain access in any other way to the park as referred to in the previous section, this will be construed as an attributable shortcoming in their fulfilment of the agreement, entitling the Operator to terminate the agreement and/or deny such persons access to the park in which the reserved Accommodation is located, without rendering the Operator liable for compensation and without any obligation on its part to refund any amounts already paid.

h. The Operator is obliged to take appropriate measures in response to a Holiday Lessee reporting a disturbance caused by other Guests.

i. Any liability on the part of the Operator is limited to the amount covered by the Operator’s applicable third-party liability Insurance policy. The Operator’s statutory liability for any damage other than damage resulting in physical injury or death is limited to a maximum of € 455,000 per event. The Operator is obliged to take out insurance for this.

13. PRIVACY

a. The personal details of Guests are recorded in the Operator's address files. These details are used exclusively for responsible business operations and additionally for the advertisement by post or email of special offers of a commercial nature by the Operator or third parties carefully selected by the Operator. The Operator does not provide information to Third Parties that violates the privacy of Holiday Lessees, Joint Holiday Lessees or Guests, save in cases in which the Operator calls in the police in connection with a violation of the Park Regulations and/or acts which, in the opinion of the Operator, potentially constitute a criminal offence, or in situations that demand emergency first aid.

b. Holiday Lessees who prefer not to receive advertising material from the Operator or object to the Operator passing their personal details on to Third Parties can easily notify Roompot Parcs accordingly by sending a written message to: Roompot Parcs, Postbus 12, (NL) 4493 ZG Kamperland, The Netherlands or by e-mail to info@roompot.nl.

d. Guests who are photographed by chance during their stay and whose photographs are used in a publication by or on behalf of the Operator are presumed to consent to such use.

14. DEPOSIT AND SETTLEMENT

Most parks charge a Deposit per person and/or per reserved Accommodation per period in connection with the ‘final inspection’.

The Operator reserves the right to charge an additional Deposit in specific situations, such as upon the booking of a reservation or upon the arrival of a Group (pre-announced or not), per Group or per individual Guest in that Group or an additional Deposit and/or fee for the hire of bed linen and/or cleaning fee.

The Operator is entitled at all times to settle claims (e.g. amounts due, fines and compensation for damages) on Holiday Lessees and the Guests included in the agreement, for whatever reason, against all amounts paid by the latter, including the Deposit or additional Deposit. If necessary, an additional invoice will be sent.

The Deposit or additional Deposit or the remaining amount will be transferred to the Holiday Lessee's bank account within seven days after departure if the Accommodation is vacated in accordance with the applicable cleaning regulations and there are no more amounts outstanding (for damages or otherwise). Refunding the Deposit does not imply relinquishment of any right to claim damages or compensation in any form whatsoever.

The right to the refund of the Deposit expires one year after the departure date.

Amounts under € 10 are not refunded.

APPENDIX I: GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ROOMPOT PARCS

Regulations for groups and/or specfic situations

Dear Guest,

You have booked a stay at an Roompot Parcs. The following Regulations were drawn up in accordance with our General Terms and Conditions to ensure a pleasant stay for all of our guests.

These Regulations were drawn up in response to the fact that some guests do, unfortunately, cause a disturbance of the peace. Experience has shown that in most cases nuisance and damage are caused by Groups and their individual members. This is why these Regulations apply to Groups as standard and only to Families in the event of an observed disturbance of the peace and/or non-compliance with our regulations. These Regulations are solely intended as a measure to prevent a disturbance of the peace and damage to us and our Guests. We wish to emphasise that by far the majority of our Guests enjoy their stay free of any problems and that in most cases, as a result, these Regulations are superfluous.

General

The definitions used in these Regulations are the same as those used in the General Terms and Conditions and the Park Regulations.

In addition to the present Regulations, the Park Regulations and General Terms and Conditions also apply to all persons present in the Park. All regulations and Terms and Conditions are available from park reception on request and have been published on the website, where they can be downloaded.

At all times, the Holiday Lessee is responsible and liable for the Group in its entirety. The Holiday Lessee must ensure that all members of his or her Group have been informed of the contents of the applicable Regulations and Terms and Conditions.

The Operator reserves the right to demand an additional Deposit in specific situations and periods (also see Article 14 of the Roompot Parcs General Terms and Conditions).

In this regard, the Operator is entitled to demand a Deposit of € 50 per person from every Group (or Family).

The Holiday Lessee who booked a reservation for a Group is requested to report to reception upon arrival of the Group. The Operator may demand that this person produce valid proof of his or her identity and a list of the names of the members of the Group. Furthermore, payment will be demanded of the € 50 Deposit per person.

Instructions provided by the staff and Security Staff must be followed at all times.

Every Guest is obliged to show legally valid proof of identity when requested to do so by the Operator or the Operator’s staff and/or Security Staff, and to grant the Operator permission to make a copy of this proof of identity subject to the provisions of these Regulations.

The Operator will be at liberty to deviate from these Regulations if it deems fit.

Use of Accommodation

1.. The Holiday Lessee (always above 21 years of age) may hire the Accommodation only for recreational purposes.

Built Accommodations are equipped with furniture and other accessories. The Accommodations in their entirety must be left by the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee(s) in the same condition of cleanliness and tidiness as the condition in which they were delivered to the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee(s) on the day of arrival.

2. Each Accommodation has its own furniture and appliances. Guests are not permitted to carry furniture belonging inside the Accommodation outside, nor to move furniture and garden furniture to other Accommodation(s).

3. Guests are obliged to keep the rented property and its direct vicinity in a clean and tidy condition. Waste must be deposited in the designated waste containers and rubbish bins at all times.

13. If the Holiday Lessee and/or Joint Holiday Lessee are absent from the Accommodation, all unattached items such as bicycles, toys and so on around the Accommodation (and if this concerns a Pitch, on the Accommodation) must be tidied up, stored away and kept out of sight to the greatest extent possible. Bicycles are not permitted to be parked leaning against the Accommodation.

Beer taps that use carbon dioxide canisters are prohibited in or on the Accommodations.

The designated number of persons permitted to stay overnight in an Accommodation may not be exceeded.

The Operator reserves the right to enter the Accommodation at all times for purposes of inspection.

Use of the park and/or the park grounds

Guests are expected to accept the common standards of behaviour and to refrain from performing any activities that are polluting, damaging, disturbing, unhealthy, or cause nuisance in their surroundings.

Standard traffic regulations apply in the park, with the exception of the maximum speed limit. Everyone is expected to observe the designated speed limits. The use of mopeds and scooters on the campsite is prohibited.

Night hours and nuisance

  1. Generally speaking, guests of the park are expected to behave respectably and to refrain from doing anything that could reasonably be of nuisance or offending to the Operator or other Guests.
  2. Guests are obliged to refrain from making noise between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. We expect our Guests to strictly observe these night-time regulations. Loud conversations, music and any other noise are prohibited during these hours, as is the use of motorised vehicles.
  3. Guests are also requested to ensure that music carriers, musical instruments and other items that could cause noise nuisance do not in any way disturb the peace during the day. In principle, a complaint submitted by a fellow Guest in itself is proof that the peace has been disturbed.
  4. Public drunkenness is prohibited. Public drunkenness is understood to include the possession of opened bottles and/or cans of alcoholic beverages outside of the Accommodation.
  5. Security Staff is on patrol at most parks. Instructions provided by the staff (including the Security Staff) must be followed immediately.

Unaccompanied Minors

  1. If a reservation booked by a Third Party over the age of 21 is actually used by Unaccompanied Minors (persons who have not yet attained the age of 21 and are travelling without their parents or carers and/or are not accompanied by a person over 21 years of age), the Operator reserves the right to terminate the agreement with immediate effect without any obligation to refund the Total Sum.
  2. A Holiday Lessee booking a stay for Fellow Holiday Lessees under the age of 21 is obliged to accompany the group at all times. Upon discovery that this Holiday Lessee has not arrived with the group or has left prematurely, for whatever reason, the Group will be regarded as a group of Unaccompanied Minors and treated as such, in accordance with the General Terms and Conditions and the present Regulations.

CONSEQUENCES OF VIOLATING THE REGULATIONS AND/OR NOT FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In the event of a violation of these Regulations and/or the rules and regulations defined in the Park Regulations and/or General Terms and Conditions, an initial warning will, in principle, be given and an additional Deposit of € 50 per person will be demanded (unless already paid upon arrival). A yellow card will be issued in connection with this initial warning.
  2. Depending on the seriousness of the violation, but in any case after a second violation, the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee accompanying this person will be fined a sum of € 50 per person that can be set off against the Deposit or additional Deposit already paid, without prejudice of the Operator’s right to charge the Holiday Lessee or Joint Holiday Lessee additional compensation for damages. In cases where a Deposit has not yet been paid, this fine must be paid at reception/the security staff office. If the fine has not been paid prior to departure, the person(s) who have been fined will be sent an invoice.
  3. If a violation is so serious that, in the opinion of the Operator, it cannot reasonably be held to continue the agreement, the Operator will be entitled to terminate the agreement with immediate effect (without issuing an initial warning). The entire Group (or Family) will then be expelled from the park with immediate effect and denied access to the park, without any obligation on the part of the Operator to refund the Total Sum and/or any Deposits paid. In this case, the persons concerned will be issued a red card.

When Holiday Lessees or Joint Holiday Lessees are issued a warning (initial or otherwise), they are required to sign for this (also on behalf of the entire Group or Family). A refusal to sign will be deemed a refusal to observe the park rules and entitle the Operator to terminate the agreement with immediate effect and deny the relevant persons access to the park, without any obligation on the part of the Operator to refund the Total Sum and/or any Deposits paid.

Complaints

In the event that a Holiday Lessee is not in agreement with a decision made by the Operator or by the Operator’s Security Staff or other staff, he or she may bring the dispute before the Disputes Committee as defined in Article 15 of the General Terms and Conditions. A dispute will only be handled by the Disputes Committee if the Holiday Lessee has submitted his or her complaint in writing to the Operator within two weeks after it arose. Subsequently, the Holiday Lessee must submit the dispute to the Disputes Committee in writing, ultimately two months after he or she submitted it to the Operator.

APPENDIX II: PARK REGULATIONS

Welcome to our holiday park. We will make every effort to ensure you have a pleasant stay. There are, however, also a few simple things we would like to ask of you, as our guest. Naturally, no holiday park can do without rules to ensure your personal safety and that of your fellow guests. This is why we have drawn up these Park Regulations. These form an integral part of this agreement, together with our General Terms and Conditions and the RECRON Terms and Conditions that apply to the agreement. All of these rules and regulations together apply to all Guests staying at the park.

All terms and concepts used in these park regulations are defined in the General Terms and Conditions. This is why we use such terms as ‘Operator’, ‘Holiday Lessee’ and Guest’. Our General Terms and Conditions provide an extensive overview of these definitions. Please inquire at reception if you have any questions in connection with those Terms and Conditions. Our staff will be happy to be of help.

We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding and wish you a pleasant stay at our park!

Holiday Accommodations must be vacated by 10 a.m. on the day of departure.

Campsites should be vacated by 11 a.m. on the day of departure and be left empty and clean.

No rubbish may be left in, on or around the Accommodation. Rubbish must be sorted and deposited in the designated containers. Loose rubbish bags (or loose rubbish) may not be left anywhere in the park as this is unhygienic and will attract pests and animals.

Visitors

Visitors are welcome at the park. They are expected to report to park reception upon arrival and to leave the park before 11 p.m. Deviations from this rule are only permitted with prior consent of the park manager. If visitors wish to stay overnight, they must report at reception and will then be registered as overnight guests. An overnight charge will apply. The Operator reserves the right to refuse overnight guests. Visitors are required to comply with the rules and regulations laid down in these Regulations.

The rules and regulations that apply to Holiday Lessees apply equally to their guests. Holiday Lessees are obliged to inform their guests of the relevant regulations as included in the General Terms and Conditions, the RECRON Terms and Conditions and the Park Regulations.

Different maximum limits may apply to amperage at each park; values may even vary from pitch to pitch. Amperage is specified in the reservation when booking a campsite. Guests are required to ensure that their electrical appliances do not exceed the maximum amperage limits.

Furthermore, the Operator is authorised to temporarily decommission buildings and systems for maintenance purposes, without entitling the Guest to a full or partial refund of the Deposit or rental or other amounts paid or due. If possible, the Operator will announce such a visit in due time. In the event of an urgent problem, the Operator is permitted to refrain from such an announcement.

Parking

In general only one car is permitted per Accommodation, unless specified otherwise. Visitors’ cars are not allowed onto the park. The Operator reserves the right to change the parking policy.
