I have a question about

Before making a booking

Is barbecuing allowed everywhere?

Almost all our campsites include barbecue facilities. If charcoal is allowed, you will find a free charcoal barbecue at your accommodation. However, if charcoal is not permitted but gas is, we will provide you with a free gas BBQ (including gas cylinder). Some campsites have a central barbecue area and some campsites do not allow barbecues because of drought hazards. If this is the case, you will find a luxury griddle at your accommodation. Our campsite pages include important information about the type and availability of barbecues at your chosen campsite.

What does the Refund guarantee entail?

If your holiday cannot go ahead due to a quarantine obligation in your holiday country or home country on a national level, we guarantee a full refund within 10 working days! Of course you can also opt for another destination. This guarantee applies to bookings throughout the season.

The money back guarantee does not apply if the quarantine is caused by the vaccination status of you or your travel companions.

Do I get an option to make a new booking without any conditions attached to it?

This is possible. We are happy to give you an option for up to 5 days (incl. Saturday and Sunday). You may either call us or send us an emai lto inform us if you decide to approve or cancel your option. You can arrange an option for a maximum of one working day within a month before arrival.

Can we only arrive on Saturdays at Roan?

With Roan you can check in and out from many campsites on Saturday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. The arrival and departure days may differ per campsite. On the campsite page you can easily view the arrival and departure days at your favourite campsite in the price table. Throughout the season there is a minimum stay of 2 nights.

What things do we still have to pay for on the spot at the campsite?

You are required to pay tourist tax in all countries. Count on between € 0,50 and € 1,- per person per day. Children are often free or half price (Terme Catez campsite charges an extra fee of € 1.25 to 2.50 per day for children aged 6 and over).

At some campsites in Croatia (A.o. Porto Sole, Vestar, Polari, Krk, Belvedere Trogir, Solaris Beach Resort and Zaton Holiday Resort), you pay a so-called registration fee of +/- € 1 per person (for the duration of your stay, not per day). Service costs may still be charged in the Netherlands. At the following campings in the Netherlands the costs for water and electricity are not included: Roompot beach resort, Hunzedal, Callassande and Kijkduin. These campings are subject to local charges at the time of booking (local charges include tourist tax, gas, light and waste charges).

Some campsites charge an extra fee for the use of various facilities, such as the swimming pool or the parking lot. If applicable, these surcharges are clearly stated on the camping pages in question.

This season we do not collect the deposit via a payment request or by cash payment. On arrival at the campsite our staff will give you a SEPA form. You fill in this SEPA form and as soon as you leave your accommodation, clean and without damage, you will receive this form back without us collecting anything. Our staff will provide you with free cleaning products if you wish. If you depart before 7:00 am, the SEPA form will be destroyed by our staff after your accommodation has been found clean.

You may also have to pay a deposit for using the pool facilities or at the gate entrance to the campsite. If the barbecue has not been cleaned on departure we are obliged to withhold €25,- from the deposit paid by you.

Can we book a final cleaning?

How nice is it that after a wonderful holiday you don't have to clean your accommodation yourself? At Roan we like to take this care out of your hands, since season 2020 it is possible to book, at almost all campings, a final cleaning! More information about the final cleaning can be found here.

Can we state our preference?

You may also state any preferences you may have. Our staff will do their utmost best to take your preferences into account when planning their campsite schedules. There is no charge for stating your preferences. However, we can never guarantee your preference but we promise to do our best!

If a preference you have given us is not possible, for whatever reason, you will not be informed beforehand.

At Roan, you can book a Next to each other guarantee or a Roan Preferred-pitch at most campsites.

On our website you can see when booking, when adding the extras, whether a Roan Preferred-pitch or a Next to each other guarantee is possible. 

For more information we refer you to our travel conditions.

What are the reservation charges at Roan?

The reservation fee is € 27,-.

How can I book?

You can book with us by phone, email or at our website. After going through the booking process you will receive an email from us with the booking confirmation. Once the booking confirmation has been received, your booking is final and the deposit must be paid before the date stated on the booking confirmation.

Why do I have to pay €10,- consumer contribution SGR?

From 1 February 2021, the SGR Guarantee Fund will introduce a participation fee of € 10 per booking. This amount will be charged to the traveller by Roan Camping Holidays and transferred to the SGR Guarantee Fund.

Roan Camping Holidays is affiliated with SGR (travel guarantee fund). We do this in order to offer you, as a customer, protection. Should Roan run into financial problems, you will always receive your payment back via the SGR.

The own consumer contribution SGR (formerly SGR contribution) was abolished in 1999. At that time, the SGR had built up sufficient resources to pay out clients who had suffered losses in the event of any bankruptcies of travel organisations. As a result of Covid-19, the SGR expects more companies to apply for financial insolvency in the future and in order to ensure that the guarantee obligation can be met, this levy will be reintroduced.

Which extras can I add to my booking?

We thought about everything with Roan!  You can book the following essentials: stroller, cot, pull-along wagon, highchair, beachtowels, towels, your pet, the next-door guarantee and the pitch-guarantee.

What are the rules for the swimming pool?

In some pools, especially in Italy, a swimming cap must be worn at all times. Sometimes a cap or a bandana is sufficient. Some campsites in France do not permit swimming shorts but require men and boys to wear fitted swimming trunks. Check the water recreation section on our camping pages to see which type of swimwear is allowed. Please note that swimming pools at some campsites are closed at midday (siesta), for example, from 1 pm to 3 pm.

What is the difference between a Prestige Lounge and a Vision Lounge mobile home?

The mobile homes both have 3 bedrooms, air conditioning, a luxury lounge veranda, are suitable for up to 7 people and are 35 m2 in size. The big difference is the layout and appearance of the mobile homes. The Prestige Lounge is equipped with a kitchen at the front of the mobile home and a large sliding door to the decking and in the Vision Lounge, the kitchen is located at the rear and you can walk onto the decking through French doors. In the Vision Lounge there is a separate dining and sitting area, in the Prestige Lounge there is a combi dining/sitting area. The front of the Prestige lounge is also equipped with a modern 'stone-look'.

How much does a cancellation insurance at Roan cost?

As of 01.0.1.2022, we offer the cancellation insurance of Mutuaide Assistance. This insurance reimburses you for the cancellation costs or the unused holiday days, if you have to end your holiday prematurely. This cancellation insurance costs 5% of the travel sum.

Are the facilities at the campsite open at all times?

Especially in off-season, you have to take it in to account that the facilities such as swimming pool, entertainment or restaurant are not open (anymore). Sometimes campsite owners can decide to open certain facilities later or to close them earlier. We try as much as possible to give the correct opening dates but take no responsibility for the eventual inaccuracies.

About your existing booking

Can I change my booking?

You can always change your booking. In some cases, there may be additional costs. 

There are not any extra costs for: 

  • additional people
  • additional extras
  • additional nights
  • additional travel insurance

Of course, you do pay extra costs for the extra number of people, extras, etc. 

If your new booking amount is higher, you will have to pay a supplement. If your new price is lower, we will apply the cancellation percentage applicable on the date of change. To determine the price, we look at the price that is valid on the date of change. For changes within 28 days before arrival, we apply the price of the original booking date.

A change to a new date must always be within the same year as the original arrival date.

Roan has the right to change prices. Our prices may vary daily.

If you wish to deduct from your booking a certain number of nights (or previously booked extras or people), this is considered a partial cancellation. Cancellation fees will be charged on the price difference. 

Can I cancel my booking (partially)?

You can cancel your booking free of charge until March 1st 2022. Your deposit must be paid prior to the date stated on your confirmation. However, it will be refunded to your account if you cancel before March 1st 2022. If you cancel after this date, you are required to pay cancellation fees (see Travel Conditions). If you decide to cancel part of your booking, you will have to pay a cancellation fee for the nights you cancel. N.B.: It is not always possible to lengthen or shorten your holiday. However, if you do so, you may be charged a cancellation fee since we strive to ensure that our accommodations are occupied at all times. If you have to cancel the entire trip, we would like to ask you to inform us in writing. You can send an email with your details.

When do I receive my travel documents?

After we have received your payment in full, we will send you the travel documents by e-mail (starting 1 March), 14 days prior to the start of your holiday. Those travel documents include your vouchers, information about the campsite and your accommodation.

Can I invoke the right of withdrawal?

The right of withdrawal does not apply to all services of Roan Camping Holidays. Services relating to accommodation to be provided on a specific date or during a specific period are excluded from the right of withdrawal. However, we do have a cancellation scheme. For more information about cancellations, see https://www.roan.eu/frequently-asked-questions under "Can I cancel my booking (partially)?''

When do I have to pay the deposit?

If you make a booking for 2022 and you have booked after 1 March 2022, you have to pay 35% of the travel sum before the date stated on the invoice/confirmation. 

The deposit for 2023 is €99,-, if you have booked before 31 December 2022. If you book in January or February 2023, we ask a deposit of 15%. From March 2023 the deposit is 25%. If you have cancellation insurance, these costs will be added. The remainder of the payment must be in the possession of the booking office at least 8 weeks before arrival. If payments are not made within the specified period, the travel agency reserves the right to cancel the booking and the applicant will be liable for the cancellation costs.

If you book within 8 weeks of your arrival, then the total amount has to be paid at once. You do not receive giro collection slips, but you can pay by bank transfer, Mastercard, or VISA. By logging in to 'My Roan' you can easily choose which payment method you would like to use.

Does Roan apply flexible pricing and what does this mean for my booking?

We monitor our prices daily and adjust them if necessary. It is therefore possible that the trip you saw yesterday has become cheaper or more expensive today. We apply the price of the moment you book your holiday. We will never charge you a higher price afterwards. If the price goes down on the other hand, we will not adjust your booking either. After all, at the time of booking you agreed to our conditions and the price at that time.

Till when can I still book extras?

Basically you can still book for extras till the day of departure (provided that it’s available).

Can I find all my bookings in 'My Roan'?

Bookings of 2022 and previous years can be found in your own Roan account. Due to the switch to a new reservation system, you will need to make a new log-in for your 2023 booking. Previously made bookings can no longer be viewed here.

When you have subsequently booked 2 or more reservations, for example when you combine two campings or go when you are going on holiday with several families at the same time, you will unfortunately only see the 1st booking. We are aware of this technical defect.

What happens if an unsafe situation arises in my holiday destination?

We look at the travel advice 7 days before arrival. If it is not safe to travel to your holiday destination, you can make use of our Money Back Guarantee, for which we adhere to the advice of the government.

Are rising fuel prices a reason to change or cancel my booking?

If you prefer to go on holiday closer to home because of rising fuel prices, you can always change your holiday according to our Terms & conditions. However, this is not a valid reason for cancellation.

What size should the mattress I want to bring for the cot be?

We offer cots with a standard size of 120 x 60 cm.

How do I log in for my 2022 and/or 2023 booking?

You can view, manage and pay for your own booking in your own My Roan environment. Did you know that you can also book most of the extras here?

COVID-19

Can I go on holiday with Roan if I have not been vaccinated?

Yes, you can. However, you must adhere to the entry requirements of your holiday destination. You can find out which tests are required on the government's website.

What do you mean by a quarantine obligation?

If your holiday cannot go ahead because your holiday destination or home country is required to go into quarantine on arrival, we give you the guarantee of a full refund! And all that within 5 working days! You can also choose to go on holiday to another country. This guarantee applies to bookings throughout the season. This guarantee does not apply if the quarantine is caused by the vaccination status of you or your travel companions.

Can I cancel my trip free of charge if I am required to quarantine, if I have been in contact with an infected person?

In case you are not diagnosed, but have been in contact with an infected person and are therefore required to quarantine, it is not a valid reason for cancelling your holiday free of charge. Of course, we are happy to find a solution together, such as rescheduling your holiday perhaps. Please, contact us as soon as possible so that we can assist you. If you have taken out cancellation insurance through Roan after January 1, 2022, then this is a valid reason to have your cancellation costs reimbursed by the insurer.

I cannot travel because one of my travel companions or I was diagnosed with Covid-19. Will I be covered?

A positive result is for most cancellation insurances a valid reason to have your cancellation costs reimbursed. So always take out cancellation insurance so that you do not run any risk. Always check your insurance conditions.

Roan cooperates with Allianz Global Assistance for bookings made before 31 December 2021 and with Mutuaide Assistance for bookings made after 1 January 2022. With both insurers a Covid-19 infection is a valid reason to cancel. Cancellation insurance should be taken out within 7 days of booking. Our travel specialists will be happy to inform you.

When will I be notified that my holiday is cancelled due to a quarantine obligation?

We will contact you one week before arrival if it turns out that your holiday cannot go ahead.

Can I cancel without cost if I have to show a negative PCR test at my destination?

If your holiday destination requires a negative PCR test, this is not a valid reason for cancelling your holiday without cost. The cost of the PCR test is borne by the holidaymaker.

Can I travel through countries that still have code orange or go on holiday there?

It is possible to travel through and to countries that have code orange, but please check your travel insurance if you are insured in case you unexpectedly end up in hospital during your trip or vacation.

Do you offer compensation if not all facilities are open?

No, you will not receive any compensation if some facilities are not open due to Covid-19.

Is camping a safe way to spend your holiday?

Yes, it is. You spend a lot of time outdoors when camping, and we have established guidelines for our staff regarding cleaning and safety. We use protective and disinfecting materials. In addition, our staff will always keep a safe distance.

Measures at the camping

Given the current situation in which we find ourselves, we would like to draw your attention here to a number of measures that have been taken that contribute to the safety of everyone.

Where can I check the latest status of the travel advice issued for a particular destination?

We advise you to keep an eye on the website of Foreign Affairs:

England: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-tra...
Ireland: https://www.dfa.ie/travel/trav...

Cashless payments

We ask you to pay any tourist tax and extras that still have to be paid on site as much as possible cashless.  At most campsites you can pay by a payment request sent by our couriers to you by sms or email. Do you still want to pay cash? Then there is for example an envelope in which you can put the amount.

What additional measures, such as wearing face masks, can I expect during my holiday?

The rules and measures vary from country to country and are also subject to change. Please, check the website of your government for the actual situation. Check here for the UK. Additional rules and measures at your holiday destination are not a valid reason to cancel without cost.

If I am not sure about going on holiday, can I cancel without cost?

If you decide to cancel, we will charge the regular cancellation fees. In doubt about your holiday? Rebooking to another destination is always possible. If the new destination is more expensive, you pay the difference. If the changed journey is cheaper, we charge a cancellation fee over the difference in price. We use the cancellation percentage applicable on the date of change. To determine the price, we look at the price valid on the date of change. For changes made within 28 days of arrival, we apply the price of the original booking date.

How exactly does that work with a PCR test?

At some locations it is mandatory to hand in a negative PCR test. You can make an appointment for this at a test site in your area. It is important to ask whether you will also receive a certificate. For more information on travel advice, please go to https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

Do children also have to show a negative PCR test or be vaccinated?

This depends on the destination and the minimum age also differs per country. For more information, please visit https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus. If you do not wish to comply with the conditions, this is not a valid reason for cancellation.

If I am on holiday and my destination goes from a positive to a negative travel advice, what should I do?

If, during your holidays, you are confronted with a change in travel advice. Then you have the choice to end your holiday. You do travel at your own risk. Secondly, you can contact us, so that we can see if we can rebook you for another destination with positive travel advice. As a final option, you can decide to go back home. We will reimburse you for the days that you did not use the holiday. Suppose the total travel sum is € 1400,- for 7 nights and you go home on day 3, then you have not used your holiday for 5 nights and you will receive € 1000,- in return.

Does the Coronavirus affect my booking?

We are keeping a close eye on developments associated with the spread of Coronavirus worldwide. Click here for more information about the Coronavirus. 

If the rules at my holiday destination change to 2G policy, is that a valid reason to cancel?

No, this is not a valid reason to cancel. Of course, we are always willing to work with you to see if we can change your holiday within 2022 to another destination. If the new fare is higher, you will pay the additional price. If the new price is cheaper, we charge a cancellation fee on the difference. To determine the price, we keep the date of change. Within 28 days before arrival we will keep your original booking date.
