Südsee-Camp reserves the right to change the booking with an equivalent reservation if this is deemed necessary for special reasons.

Reservations by unaccompanied young people under the age of 18 are not admitted and are cancelled by Südsee-Camp. 

Early booking is strongly recommended for all holiday periods, the months of July, August and public holidays. This also applies to special camping pitch and rental accommodation requirements in the other months. Please take note of the minimum booking times and fixed arrival and departure days

Only the descriptions and prices in the booking confirmation apply for the contractual obligations; only Südsee-Camp can initiate exceptions to this rule, see clause 23. Age-related information relates to the time of stay. For insurance reasons all members in the travel group have to be specified by name and date of birth when making the reservation.

4. deposit / payment / invoice
Please transfer the due deposit of 20% of the total price, but at least €50, by the deadline specified in your booking confirmation. Please settle the remaining amount no later than 30 days before the start of your vacation, each time indicating the specified purpose on the following account: IBAN: DE59 2406 0300 2490 0176 03, BIC: GENODEF1NBU, at Volksbank Lüneburger Heide e.G..

5. Arrival
The arrival and departure dates given in the booking confirmation are binding. The camping pitch or the rental accommodation is available from 3 pm on the day of arrival. Please wait until 3 pm in the car park opposite the main reception. Please contact us if your time of arrival is significantly delayed. If we do not receive any notice, we can reserve the accommodation or the camping pitch only until 3 pm of the day after the agreed time of arrival for you, after which it will be allocated to someone else without compensation.

6. Departure / Key
Holiday cottages, chalets and caravans with thorough cleaning by Südsee-Camp have to be vacated by 10 am. Thorough cleaning of these facilities is always carried out by Südsee-Camp or by a cleaning company commissioned with the task. Camping pitches and caravans with self-cleaning have to be vacated and you need to drive through the barrier no later than 12 pm (noon).

The key and handover report of the rental accommodation must be handed in at the arrival-reception at the time of departure. A fee of € 50.00 per lost key is charged.

7. Change of booking
If you make changes to the existing contract (such as persons, camping pitch/rental accommodation in the same category or larger, or changes to arrival or departure dates by 1-2 days), we will invoice you with the new price, along with a €15.00 handling fee for each rental object/ pitch.

Change in travel period: If you wish to change the entire travel period, this can be done only through a regular cancellation and rebooking. For your convenience, we also offer a date change option from 44 days up to 7 days before arrival, after payment of the applicable cancellation fee during this period. The cancellation costs can be used for a new booking as a goodwill credit, if the new travel price is as high or higher than the cancellation costs, it is the first change of the travel period and the new travel period is in this or next calendar year. A handling fee of € 30.00 applies. The date change must be done in writing and the new travel dates must be fixed within max. 14 days. Date change requests that do not meet these requirements will be treated as a cancellation. If the new travel date is cancelled, the goodwill credit (former cancellation charges) expires and the new cancellation costs need to be paid additionally. Cancellation costs will not be disbursed in any case.

Transfer booking to a third party: If you are not able to make the trip yourself, you can transfer the complete booking between 44 days and 7 days prior to your arrival to a third party. A handling fee of € 30.00 applies. You will remain liable as joint debtor for the payment of the bills for the guest taking over your reservation. It is not possible to transfer only parts of the booking.

8. Cancellation

If you withdraw from the contract, we charge a handling fee of €30.00 for each rental object/ pitch and, in accordance with § 537 Para. 1 BGB (German Civil Code), a reasonable compensation according to the following schedule:

  • Cancellation up to 45 days prior to arrival date:

Accommodation and camping pitches that are not occupied until 3 pm of the day after the agreed time of arrival and for which no agreement on later occupation has been made can be used for other purposes by Südsee-Camp. Occupation of a pitch or rental accommodation by Südsee-Camp does not represent a replacement tenant, as the guests could usually be accommodated elsewhere.

9. Travel cancellation insurance
We strongly recommend taking a travel cancellation insurance. This insurance is valid from the time of the booking to the time of departure. The insurance becomes effective when one or more registered guests cannot arrive or have to leave early for the following reasons: sudden illness or injuries that are so severe that according to medical opinion a stay is not possible, or due to the death of a first-degree relative. Other reasons are excluded. If you cannot travel for one of the above reasons, the insurance covers for you the cancellation costs minus an excess (deductible) of 20%. A cancellation or withdrawal is only valid when submitted in writing to Südsee-Camp prior to the planned arrival date or the early departure. Furthermore, you need to send/ show a corresponding certificate such as a doctor‘s note or death certificate within 14 days after cancellation.

10. Parking / Electric cars / license plate recognition
Each camping pitch or rental accommodation has a parking space for one vehicle; the type B and C cottages have two parking spaces. Additional vehicles have to be registered and are subject to a fee. There are rental parking spaces available for additional vehicles

Parking overnight in the large car park or at the entrance of the two main entrances is prohibited.

It is forbidden to charge your electric car on the pitch or at the rental object. You can find electric charging stations at the indoor playground Piratennest.

The barrier opening for access to the premises, based on the specified vehicle registration plate in your booking, is automated through license plate recognition. In this process, only the vehicle registration plate is visually recorded, with no capture of individuals. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b in conjunction with lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

11. Parcels / Packages

18. Liability
All guests and visitors are obliged to handle the inventory and the campsite with care. They are obliged to compensate damage incurred during their stay by themselves, their companions or guests.

1. It is forbidden to use the SSID „Südsee-Camp“ when broadcasting or boosting the Wi-Fi network. You are welcome to use your repeater on your pitch as a client or you configure it to broadcast a different SSID. Information can be found in the instruction manual of your hardware producer.

2. The legal regulation for the usage of frequency bands and transmitting power apply, especially if external antenna technology is used.

23. Changes to the information in the catalogue
Only the prices and information mentioned in the booking confirmation are binding. The offers and prices in our printed brochure are corresponding to the state of the time of going to print. Please understand that until you submit your booking request, changes in prices and services due to objective reasons are possible, which we must therefore expressly reserve the right to. For example, an increase in energy costs, fuel tax, sales tax or other taxes, etc. can justify a price increase if it causes the consumer price index to increase by more than 2 points.

Apart from that, the general place of jurisdiction applies.

If any provision of the general terms and conditions should be or become totally or partly invalid, then the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. The wholly or partially invalid provision shall be replaced by a regulation, whose economic success comes as closely as possible to that of the invalid provision.
