The following information is based on current guidelines and we will keep this page up to date as advice and legislation changes so please keep checking back.
We are delighted that, in line with government legislation, we are able to open our park to you from 12 April 2021.
If you have a holiday booked between 12th April and 16th May we have already been in contact with where you have been offered the following choices;
- Defer to a later Date and Receive a Discount of £50
If you decide to take this option, we will hold your booking until you advise us of the new dates and accommodation you would like to be transferred to and apply your £50 discount to your new booking in recognition of your valued loyalty.
- Keep your Holiday and Enjoy a Reduced Price
If you decide to take this option, we will reduce your booking price by £70 per week, or £40 for all short breaks.
- Cancel and Receive a Full Refund
You can cancel your holiday altogether, in which case we will repay all the payments you have made back to the card(s) you originally used. We are unable to do this automatically for payments made over 6 months ago, and for these we will have to contact you to arrange a refund by telephone. Refunds are currently taking 14 business days.
If you would like any help, or want to go through any of these choices in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are available on the telephone 24 hours, 7 days a week on 03451 65 62 65.
Holidays after May 17th 2021
Currently this is our expected opening date, however this is subject to government legislation. Once the park is able to fully open, our normal terms and conditions will apply.
Here are some of the questions we are getting asked about our holidays
Can I talk to someone from Welcome about my booking?
Of course! You can speak to us 24 hours a day 7 days a week by calling 03451 656265 or you can email email@example.com and we will get back to you as soon as we can!
What facilities will be open this season?
All of our facilities will be open if we are able to do so safely and in line with current legislation. We will only do so if we are confident that we are keeping our guests and our team as safe as we can – the safety of you all is our ultimate priority.
Our Tropicana Fun Pool and the Cruisers Club will be open on 17 May, subject to government legislation. The Welcome Bite will also be open on this date. We are unable to provide any hire equipment until we are able to fully open the park.
What cleaning procedures do you have in place?
We have increased the frequency and the standards of our cleaning throughout the park and in our accommodation. All of our staff have received additional training specific to Covid-19. There are many hand sanitisers around the park and public areas are regularly disinfected by our team.
All accommodation has been electronically sanitised before we allow our cleaning team to enter. The accommodation is then cleaned in line with government recommendations. We have also received accreditations from Visit England, the AA and Quality in Tourism for our high standards and Covid-19 cleaning procedures. Once you have accepted your keys you will be agreeing to our Covid Terms and Conditions and we will be unable to transfer you to alternative accommodation.
Can I book a holiday for this year?
That’s a great idea – we’d love to welcome you to the park! We are taking bookings from 12 April onwards but just be aware that this will be reviewed if there are any updates to the legislation.
Do you offer holiday insurance?
We do indeed but this only applies to new bookings. We have changed our Standard Cancellation Policy to make it easy to see what will happen should you cancel your holiday. We have also introduced our Extended Cancellation Policy, which for a nominal charge will give you even greater peace of mind. The table below shows you the amount of money you are REFUNDED FROM YOUR TOTAL HOLIDAY COST should you need to cancel with either our Standard or Extended Plan.
|Time Before Your Arrival||Standard Cancellation Plan||Extended Cancellation Plan|
|over 6 weeks||90%||100%|
|under 6 weeks||60%||90%|
|under 4 weeks||30%||70%|
|under 2 weeks||nil||50%|
|under 2 days||nil||nil%|
What happens if I book a holiday and I am unable to travel?
If you are unable to travel, then we can transfer your holiday to another date or hold your holiday until you know what date you would like to come. We have updated our terms and conditions and our Standard Cancellation Policy and we also have introduced our Extended Cancellation Policy to offer better terms for you should you need to cancel. If you cancel your holiday our normal terms and conditions apply.
What happens if I book a holiday and Welcome is unable to open?
If we are unable to open our park to you then we will offer to transfer your holiday and give you £50 towards the cost of your new holiday or we will offer you a full refund – free of all charges of course!
Can I transfer my holiday?
If for any reason you would like to transfer your holiday, you can do that up to 7 days before your arrival date to another date this year, completely free of any administration charges.
As the situation is still a little uncertain do I still have to pay my balance?
We really appreciate that there is still much we don’t know, however, to keep your holiday secure you will need to still pay your balance.
We all know that things will be different, but you can be sure that we are always working really hard to be able to give you a fantastic break whilst keeping you and our team as safe and protected as we can.
Make sure you take care of yourself and your families and stay safe – we’re so looking forward to seeing you all soon!
