Cancellation and modification

Modification of your reservation

  • Change of booking:

The client has the possibility to request a modification of his stay at the campsite, either by changing the dates or the type of accommodation. This request must be made in writing (by post or e-mail) to the campsite and will be processed according to availability and the possibilities offered by the campsite. Please note that any request for change cannot be carried over to the next season. If the customer cannot change his/her stay, he/she will have to maintain the original conditions of his/her reservation or cancel his/her stay according to the terms and conditions.

If the client wishes to increase the length of their stay, this can be done subject to availability and according to the rates in force. On the other hand, if the client wishes to reduce the length of their stay, this will be considered as a partial cancellation and will therefore be subject to the conditions of cancellation and interruption of the stay.

  • Unused services:

If the stay is interrupted or shortened for reasons beyond the control of the customer (such as the closure of the borders or the campsite by administrative decision, or the limitation of travel to a number of kilometres that does not allow the customer to come to the campsite), the campsite will issue a voucher for the equivalent of the nights not used. This voucher will be valid for a period of two years. If the customer refuses this voucher, he/she can be reimbursed on request. However, if the interruption or shortening of the stay is due to the client's own initiative (such as late arrival or early departure), no refund or voucher can be given.

Cancellation by camping Les Etangs du Plateau des Landes

In the event of cancellation by the campsite, except in cases of force majeure, the sums paid for the reservation will be fully refunded. However, this cancellation cannot give rise to the payment of damages.

Cancellation by the camper

In the event of cancellation by the camper, except in cases of force majeure, the conditions for cancellation and reimbursement are as follows. All cancellation requests must be sent by post to the postal address 8 Rue du Parfum des Sapins, 62570 Helfaut or by e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Cancellations made by telephone cannot be taken into account. Any cancellation will result in the cancellation of the reservation and the campsite reserves the right to offer the accommodation for rent again.

1) In case of cancellation by the camper without taking out cancellation insurance

    a) For one of the following reasons (preventing the stay):

  • Closure of the borders by administrative decision
  • Administrative closure of the campsite
  • Limitation of travel to a number of kilometres by administrative decision not allowing to come to the campsite

The campsite will issue a voucher for the full amount paid, valid for two years. If the client refuses to accept this voucher, he/she will be reimbursed, on request, for the corresponding amount.

   b) For all other reasons:

  • Case 1: Cancellation up to 16 (sixteen) days before the beginning of the stay. The deposit of 15% of the total amount of the stay will be retained by the campsite as a cancellation fee. The sums paid, deducted from the amount of the deposit, will be refunded. If the payment has been made in part or in full with a voucher of a higher value than the deposit: the deposit of 15% of the amount of the stay will be retained by the campsite as cancellation costs. A new non-refundable voucher for a period of 2 years to be used at the campsite where the stay was cancelled will be issued with the amount of the original voucher minus the 15% deposit. The rest of the sums paid other than the voucher will be refunded.
  • Case 2: Cancellation between D-15 and D-8 before the beginning of the stay. A sum of 30% of the total amount of the stay will be retained by the campsite as cancellation fees. A voucher will be issued for an amount corresponding to the sums paid minus the cancellation fee of 30% of the total amount of the stay. This voucher is non-refundable, non-transferable, can only be used at the campsite where the stay was cancelled and is valid for two years.
  • Case 3: Cancellation between D-7 and D-0 before the start of the stay. The total amount paid, i.e. the total amount of the stay, is retained by the campsite. No refund will be made. If the client does not arrive at the campsite within two days of the start of the stay and without having informed the campsite by letter or e-mail beforehand, the reservation will be considered as cancelled by the client. The campsite therefore reserves the right to offer the accommodation for rent again.

In the event of cancellation of the stay, the amount paid in holiday vouchers cannot be reimbursed in accordance with article L.112-14 I. of the Monetary and Financial Code. In this case, a non-refundable voucher valid for 2 years, to be used at the campsite where the holiday was cancelled, will be issued for the amount paid in holiday vouchers, after deduction of any deposit, in accordance with the conditions indicated above.

2) In case of cancellation by the camper with a subscription to our cancellation insurance

The sums paid are covered by the guarantee according to the general conditions of cancellation. Find the General Conditions of the cancellation insurance [by clicking here]. If the reason is not covered by the cancellation insurance or if the file is refused by it, the general sales conditions of paragraph 4 a. apply and the cost of the cancellation insurance will be deducted from the sums paid in case of cancellation.
