Better than collecting tokens, and some good deals considering the 6 weeks holidays.

Entertainment passes, linen, etc. cost extra - £9.50 is merely a starting price.

Managed to get 4 days begining 30th August for £62. Entertainment passes for us will be around £50, but a massive saving from the website price list.


Might benefit those who didn't get a priority code from The Sun.

*Service charge applies.

Seems good, alot cheaper than booking direct with Haven anyway.

Do I have to pay for toddlers? He's 2 years old.
#2
Think it's really based on the caravan size - say 4 people pay £15 per person = £60 + £2 booking fee making it £62 in total (as in our case), and not really age / quantity specific.
#3
Wicked value IMO. heat.
#4
Great value. HOT.
Don't forget to allow for the mandatory service charge (seems to be £6.50 per unit per night at all sites).
Even with the service charge and passes 7 nights for 4 in August would only be between £220.50 - £245.50

Done these holidays in the North East every year for around 5 years now and never paid a daily service charge. Used this firm Breakfreeholidays last year and paid around the same price then. Linen (£10), dog (£25ish) and passes (£50 or so) were the only additions.
Take a heater as it can get cold at night, too!


Great to save on the booking - means I won't feel the open wallet surgery on the arcades/pop/beer etc. as much.

*Edit - Wombat I've removed your edit about the service charge - it states in the banner ad that service and entertainment are not included. Entertainment isn't compulsory, so I'd assume service charge isn't. I've gone through and booked one and I wasn't charged, and have never been charged upon arrival either.

To get the £62 price I paid insurance etc must be removed prior to booking.

a good price just depends how many add ons you have to pay. plenty of choice and availability though, may consider it for a short break
#7
Can we find a price list for the extras ?
#9

Thanks.

On second thoughts I do remember on occasion paying linen / dog charges and possibly electric...perhaps it wasn't classed as a service charge...

Will find out in due course when Haven contact me.
Good deal either way for the timing considered.
#10
Yes its a good deal , im looking at 30th August and is around a £85 saving over the Haven site thats for 4 people and 4 passes, if there are more of you it may be cheaper going direct

Sorry I was just going by what it said on their service and entertainment charges page.
Listed below are all additional charges that apply.
Holiday parks (£ per unit per night) will make a Service Charge for each holiday home booked and this is payable after you receive your holiday confirmation. This cost covers pre-arrival cleaning, preparation of your holiday home and gas and electricity costs.

Entertainment passes (£ per person per break) are optional and will allow you and your party access to the daily entertainment programme and to some of the park’s leisure facilities. You can buy these direct from your holiday park after you have received your holiday confirmation.

I'd still bargain on them charging the extra and if they don't you've got some spare holiday cash (_;)

Edit: I googled a little and all the pages I looked at confirmed the service charge - e.g. http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?p=30756139

What does the letter say exactly - and I only just posted this deal yesterday, how do you have a letter less than 24 hours later?

Entertainment packs aren't compulsory, but are required if you want access to the showbar,arcades,etc.

I booked this few months ago but this same price for 5 people and recive:
Total Holiday cost £113.50
Payments made to-date £60
Total outstanding Balance £53.50

None payment may result in your booking being cancelled and loss of deposits already made

This is a new deal (Breakfree holidays) and has only just begun at these prices .They tend to be offered once The Sun deals have begun to clear the remaining unused places I suspect, so I don't know who yours was booked with. The last time these came up at these prices was a year ago.

Your bill doesn't state what you are actually paying the additional amount for - and you've only paid half of what your total is. If you've only paid 50% of your total it's no wonder they are chasing you!

Entertainment is an optional extra on these and not compulsory. I'd suggest you ring them and query your bill.
#27
4 nights next April for £40 for our family of 4 - fantastic value.
#28
Cracking deal. A weekend in Sunny Cleethorpes next May for less than a ton.
Nice one op.
#29
you can get into the entertainment for free mostly anyhow......

Just get there early :)
#30
You WILL get charged service charges for about £15 each.

Plus entertainment charges. I used these before, paid £62 for the holidays and then £40 when I arrived for:

Entertainment charges
Linen Charges
Service charges

Argued it out but without luck.
#34
on breakfrees facebook page it states that entertainment passes are optional but service charges are compulsory. also lots of info on they,re facebook site
#35
Hot deal OP. I am thinking of booking one - my situation would be 2 adults, 2 kids (age 3 & 4) and a toddler age 15 months - would I have to book for 5 people or would I get away with booking for 4? For both options it would be a 6 berth caravan anyway - do they check how many people are in the car when you arrive, or something similar?
#36
They never check caravans and you wont need a pass for a toddler, i would just book for 4 :)

OK I imagined I was forced to pay £40 on top without choice them cancel it LOL :)
#38
Great find, thank you. H&R added
#39
do you have to pay for linen then? I wonder if you could get away with paying for 4 adults and having 6? You are guaranteed to have a 2 bedroom caravan with a double bed in the lounge also.
