- The preceding is without prejudice to the fact that the additional costs, caused by an increase of the expenses on the side of the Operator as a consequence of an increase in charges and taxes that relate directly to the Plot, to the Camping Equipment, or to the Holidaymaker, may be passed on to the Holidaymaker, even after entering into the contract.
- Termination of the contract shall not entitle the Holidaymaker to a refund of the costs of the contract in force.

In the event that the Operator cancels the contract, he must let the Holidaymaker know by registered letter or by email.

The administrative costs, statutory interest, and collection costs shall also be charged to the Holidaymaker, in accordance with the Voorwerk II report.

Access and parking
- To operate the barrier, we will require your license plate number. You can provide this at the reception.
- When renting a Plot you are entitled to have access to the resort for one car. However, if you have created your own parking space within the boundaries of your Plot, you can request permission for a second car. This can be done using a "second car permission form" which is available at the reception desk. Please note! A parking space on your Plot does not automatically entitle access to the resort for a 2nd car.
- Parking is permitted only in the designated spaces. Parking on the road or partially on the road is not allowed, nor is parking on another person's Plot or vacant Plots.
- In order to gain access to the resort, the maximum dimensions of your vehicle must be: 4.70m (length) 1.90m (width) and 1.95m (height) (similar to a VW transporter). Vehicles above this size are not allowed in the resort. Storing caravans and recreational vehicles in the resort is prohibited.
- Please adhere to the maximum speed of 10 km/h at all times within the resort.

Lodging and parking of Third Parties
- Third Parties are, of course, welcome to stay at our resort. However, overnight visitors must report to reception to be included in our nightly register and pay an overnight fee. You must report this in advance or, if outside reception opening hours, as soon as possible. If we find that Third Parties are staying overnight in your Camping Equipment that have not been reported, we will charge a fee of EUR 75.00 per night that you are in violation.
- You are personally responsible and liable for your Third Parties. (Both financially and in terms of behavior)
- If your Third Party wishes to use our outdoor swimming pool/tennis court, they must purchase an access pass at the reception.
- Cars of Third Parties are not allowed in the resort. Third Parties can instead park in the designated parking areas outside the gates of the resort. If your visitors are carrying goods or have mobility problems, you can pick them up at these parking areas or transfer the goods.
Your Plot and Camping Equipment
- You must obtain written permission for the erection of any additions or extensions; a "work permission form" is available at the reception.
- The boundary of your Plot may only consist of permanent greenery. This greenery must not exceed 1.80m in height or be within 5cm of the main pavement.
- Boundaries with foundations are strictly prohibited.
- You are not allowed to grow your yard boundary outside of your Plot. Doing so could interfere with emergency services, the transportation of Camping Equipment in the resort, and may even create unsafe situations for road users. As a standard, you should maintain a minimum of 5cm of space between the boundary and the main pavement. When replacing your boundary, take into account that plants have a tendency to grow. It is recommended to plant the plants 50cm from the main pavement. If your boundary does not meet the requirements and is a cause for danger or hinders the transportation of Camping Equipment, we shall be forced to remove the boundary and charge a fee. If any damage occurs to your fence, we cannot accept any liability.
- A maximum of one cabin, approved by us, may be placed next to your Camping Equipment. The maximum dimension is 3.00m x 3.00m. For the placement of a log cabin you need to receive written permission; a "work permission form" is available at the reception.
- You may not erect a fence.
- You must maintain your Plot. If this is not the case, we shall notify you in writing and you will have 14 days to respond. Once the 14-day period has expired, we reserve the right to have the work done at your expense.
- You must keep your Camping Equipment in good condition. If we find that your Camping Equipment is not properly maintained, we will contact you. We will give you time to carry out the work within a reasonable period.
- Always keep an eye on cables and pipes when digging. If you accidentally hit a cable or pipe, please report this to the reception immediately and have it repaired at your own expense. If we discover the damage caused after the fact, the repair costs will only increase unnecessarily and will still be recovered from you.

Selling or letting your Camping Equipment
- Sub-letting or commercial short term letting of your Camping Equipment is not allowed, unless written permission has been given. You can obtain a "rental authorization form" at the reception.

You are at all times responsible for your tenants (even in cases of, for example, financial negligence).
- Sale of Camping Equipment while retaining the right to rent the Plot is only permitted if a written contract has been obtained. You can obtain a "sale permission form" at the reception.
