Yes so was I, I left card details also. Here's a thing though, imagine the venue says they will be open for eurofest, but we can't get there? They will surely charge the card if we don't turn up won't They?. That's why the Croats need to make a decision at least by the end of April so we can cancel the reservation. Just saying.

Not to put a damper on this, but the CAMC, has just closed all their campsites in the uk and Europe until 30 June 2020 then revised, and there is hundreds of sites. Most ferry operators are only booking freight! and public transportation must be covered with paperwork for essential travel, no Leisure or Tourism. Nearly every campsite in France, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Portugal, is to be closed tomorrow, this has been government imposed. Croatia, Poland,Denmark should all be shut in the next two weeks, this will all be for 3 months, but could be up to 12 months. So don't shoot the massager. I
I had a email from the CAMC, and I have been refunded 4 sites in Europe for September 2020. People with caravans and motorhome/campervan have been told to return to the Uk immediately. with paperwork from Uk government to be able to travel home through Europe, and not to be held up at ports, to be put on the first available ferry/train regardless of booking and at no charge.

Just a thought??? If you have left your card details for the deposit!! I would cancel the card and order a new one, because as long as they have you're card? They can take the full amount. By ordering a new card, they can not take anything, because the card is cancelled and not active.

If we have to cancel I will do it in the usual way. It'll be a bad thing If They try and fleece us in the circumstances. It does seem unlikely that Any bike rally will be going ahead in the whole of Europe judging by the latest news.

Spanish police are sending all campers home or out of the country.
Now we are under house arrest I guess a lot of "little jobs around the house" will get done :lol: :lol:

guys, we all hope we are able to attend however if not the campsite has the following cancellation policy:

Cancellation policy:

The reservation will be held by 24:00, on arrival date
The reservation can be cancelled online no less than 2 day(s) prior to arrival.
In case of no show, we will apply a cancellation fee of 1 overnight(s) in selected accommodation.
In case of cancellation 2-0 days before arrival, we charge a cancellation fee of 1 overnight(s) in selected accommodation.


So as far as I can see not really an issue, the Dutch government has prolongued the strict policy to stay indoors as much as possible until June 1st so I truly hope we are able to come .... let's all stay indoors and get this bloody virus out of our systems... hope to see you in June

I think some travel restrictions might be lifted in this country by then but foreign travel might be different. If it is we were thinking of going to Harry's place. We'll see.
