Camping Cheques - Koningshof Dropping Out For 2016


Recommended Posts

Here's a copy of an email sent out to Camping Cheque users by the owner/manager of Camping Koningshof in the Netherlands:

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

With pleasure Koningshof has participated more than 10 years in the Camping Cheque program. For a very low rate our guests could camp in low season with these Cheques. It gave a lot of pleasant and enjoyable extra guests.

Two years ago Camping Cheque has been taken over by a large French company. We should note that the organization has had little to no new initiatives in favor of campers, participating campsites and international camping organizations. Traditionally the Dutch A. N. W. B. was one of the major partners. Since 2015, the A. N. W. B. stopped with the co-operation.

Starting from the season 2016, we no longer accept Camping Cheques. Of course, there are still plenty of other campsites that still accept the Cheques.

Also in 2016: low rates on Koningshof!

No camping cheques, but now super low season rates. On our price list you will see big discounts off season, so that, depending on the number of persons per night, you pay less than € 20,00! We continue to accept the Camping Keycard in the low season, whereby you will only pay € 19,00 per night for two people.

We look forward welcoming you again in 2016!

Met vriendelijke groet,

Ph. (Flip) Kromhout

We heard similar complaints from two site owners, who despite being in the scheme refused to accept our paper Camping Cheques in September, but offered us a discounted rate for paying cash.

That is disappointing as we planned to stay at Koningshof next year. I will contact Flip to confirm and decide whether to alter plans. We had already changed our plan to stay at Delftse Hout as they have also dropped out of the Camping Cheque scheme

Thought that Kawan had bought them much earlier than 2 years ago. ..although their French SARL owns them they are Malaysian at their head. ...

Also disappointed with this as we used both these sites when in the Netherlands; just hope De Schatberg doesn't decide to drop out as well!

I understand that campsites are dropping out because of the paltry amount of money which they receive of the 16 Euros paid by the camper. With ACSI the owner gets the full amount from the camper as he settles his bill.

Yes, you're right. For paper Camping Cheques the site receives only 6. 25 for each cheque - slightly more for 'electronic' ones on a Silver or Gold card - and on top of that they have to pay annual fees to be in the scheme, which include charges for the machine which takes payment from the cards.

This is similar to my earlier post, a lot of our favourite Camping Cheques sites have/are leaving and moving to ACSI. This year we'll be using ACSI for the first time.
