Due to the exceptional situation created by the coronavirus, this recreation voucher has been introduced. The recreation-voucher is a digital voucher. You can use this as online payment to book another holiday because the original stay could not take place due to the corona virus. The value of the voucher is equal to the received (down) payment minus the reservation costs. You can use the voucher(s) as payment for a new booking for a stay in 2022.
How does the recreation voucher work?
You can redeem the voucher by entering the voucher code in step 1 of the booking process. In the right-hand column, under the overview of your dates of stay, you will see the options for entering a voucher or coupon code. Enter the unique voucher code in this field and click on 'redeem'. The credit on the voucher is then processed as payment.
What are the advantages of a recreation voucher?
With the recreation voucher you keep the already paid travel sum (minus the reservation costs) as a credit for the next stay. The recreation voucher is valid until 31 December 2022, so you have enough time to plan a new stay at Ruiterplaat Vakanties.
How long is the recreation voucher valid?
You can use the voucher up to one year after the date of issue as payment for a new booking via our website. The voucher can be redeemed for a stay in the period up to 31 December 2022.
Do I have to spend the entire amount of the recreation voucher at once?
No, the recreation voucher is a digital asset that you can spend in several parts. If the new travel sum is less than the credit on the voucher, the remainder will remain on the voucher. You can use this for a next booking with departure until 31 December 2022.
Can I use the leisure voucher for a booking I have already made?
You can, if you still have to pay (part of) the existing booking. The recreation voucher cannot be exchanged for a booking that has already been paid for.
Can you refund me the (remaining) value of the recreation voucher?
No, there will be no refund if you do not use/ cannot use the voucher.
Can I give the recreation voucher to someone else?
No, the recreation voucher is not transferable.
I have lost my recreation voucher. Can I have a new one sent to me?
Yes, you can. You can contact our staff. They will send you your previously received voucher code again.
I have already booked a new holiday with the recreation voucher. Now I want to add some extras. Can I pay for them with the recreation voucher?
Yes, that's possible if you still have a balance on your recreation voucher. After adding the extras, you can use your recreation voucher as a means of payment.
I have already used part of my recreation voucher. Can you tell me what credit is left on it?
Yes, you can. Please contact our staff.
I've rebooked my holiday or cancelled it because of the corona virus, but I still want a recreation-voucher. Is that possible?
No, unfortunately it is not possible to receive the recreation voucher with retroactive effect.
