Your booking will be confirmed by e-mail a couple of days after it has been made. A booking at an RCN Holiday Park is final once you have received the confirmation from that park. The confirmation is also proof of the booking.
You must pay 50% of the amount due within two weeks of receipt of the confirmation.
The balance must be paid into our account at least one month before your arrival. You can also pay it by iDEAL/ Sofort/ credit card or Bancontact by logging in to welcome.rcn.eu/my-rcn.
The entire amount must be paid if you make your booking within six weeks of arrival. If you do not pay before the payment deadline, your booking will become void and costs will still be payable as set out in the standard HISWA-RECRON terms & conditions.
Arrival and departure
You can occupy rented accommodation after 3 pm on the agreed day of arrival. The key should be returned to us before 10 am on the day of departure.
You can occupy your pitch after 13 pm on the agreed day of arrival. Your pitch should be vacated by 12 pm and you pitch with private facilities by 11 pm on the day you leave.
You can pitch the following on one of our pitches:

Switch your holiday to another RCN park free of charge

* Changing your booking without charge is permitted subject to availability and as long as it is for the same dates and requested no less than three days before arrival. You can also just change the dates and stay at the same park as long as you change them at least one month before arrival and they are within the same calendar year. Changing your holiday in these cases is free, although there may be extra costs due to price differences. No refunds will be made if the new booking is cheaper, however. If you make a change more than once, or within three days before arrival, there will be a charge of € 35.
