Hello, last year we flew for the first time to Gerona in Spain and the plane got in just before midnight, by the time we got our bags and waited for the transfer and drove to the holiday park, it was around 2.30 am. Obviously, we got our keys and went straight to the accommodation (booking-in time was from 4 pm I think)- because of the time of our arrival, we had to pay for the previous day's accommodation so that we could get our keys straight away - no where to store our cases if we booked for the afternoon of our arrival.
Does anybody know if there is a way to get around not paying out for an extra day's accommodation (five of us) if we turned up very late at night again - are you able to stay at the airport for a while or do they clear you out? The holiday park we went to last year said they had no room to store luggage if we turned up early in the morning and didn't want to pay for the previous day. Looking at a hotel possibly this year (if we can find anything left!), do you know if they will store your bags if you turn up several hours early, and are you able to use their facilities until the room is ready, or not?
Has anybody actually turned up late morning at a holiday park on the first day of their holiday booking and been able to get in to their accommodation earlier than they say, perhaps check-in from 4 pm onwards (if you have not paid for the previous day's accommodation (when you were flying)? Hope this makes sense, any advice appreciated, thank you.
