Holiday parks in the Netherlands are getting busier. There is still plenty of booking and during the Ascension weekend it was already pleasantly busy at most parks. And at Pentecost?
“At Pentecost, the Dutch holiday and bungalow parks are a bit fuller again, but most parks still have a place to get,” says Laurens Taekema of Parkvakanties.
There was again a striking amount of activity during the Ascension weekend at the Dutch holiday parks. Not surprising, because after a long period of staying at home, people were finally allowed to go on holiday again. People therefore went out en masse. Just away from home, just a different environment, just recharge. There is good news for those who also want to leave this coming weekend: Pentecost is imminent, the weather forecast is looking good and there is still enough space.
Coronaproof to a holiday park
The holiday parks are now all open again and they are corona proof. There are walking routes, for a visit to the pool you have to make a reservation and the food can be picked up or delivered. Activities usually take place in the open air in order to keep the distance of one and a half meters as good as possible.
People also dare to go out again now that it is clear that the holiday parks are taking good measures. The bookings were therefore stormy in recent weeks. “We have not booked for weeks, so you do not just book all the parks full, but things are going very fast at the moment with both the last minute bookings and people who book a summer holiday in the Netherlands,” says Taekema.
Last minute offers
Many people will take a break during Pentecost to enjoy the beautiful weather and discover the most beautiful places in the Netherlands. Drenthe is very popular, just like with Ascension.
So there is still room for those who want to leave the Pentecost weekend at the last minute. It is not necessary to fear that a stay at a holiday park will be very expensive during this period, because there are many good last minute offers. For example, the discount at well-known chains such as Roompot and Landal GreenParks can reach up to 40 percent.
