Extra benefits for loyal guests

Guests who visit our parks regularly benefit from attractive, exclusive special offers. We call this our Friends programme.

Guests automatically become a Friend if they book at least three holidays at one of our park within 36 months.

For example: If the first holiday you booked with us was on 1 July 2015 and the second on 1 September 2016, the third would have to be booked before 1 July 2018.

You will enjoy all the benefits as long as you remain a Friend. It applies to all Center Parcs in all countries (except for the UK). Friends benefits can be enjoyed on top of Family Discount, 55+ Discount and Early Bird Discount. When you book with Early Bird Discount your will benefit from our FREE Activities Gift (€30)! That’s a good deal!
