hey
me and 3 friends recently booked 3 nights in centre parcs, but just after we'd booked it all we saw the terms and conditions which stated that one member of the party must be over 21 in each accomodation unit! if we cancel we'll lose half our money (a lot)...does any1 know how strict it is and whether we'd need ID saying one person is 21? we're 18 and 19....i know that all u do is drive thru and get the keys to accomdation from the booth-dont have to get out the car or anything-so i was hoping it'd be ok. has any1 stayed there with friends before etc??

I thought that you had to put your age down on the booking form, and if you did surely they would be aware none of you are over 21.

Its annoying rule, I know, as me and my friends planned to do the same thing as you, but realised just in time about the over 21 rule they have.

One of my friends went with a group, I don't think any of them were 21 but I can't be certain. I don't think they're that strict-as long as you behave yourselves I think you'll be fine. I think they say that cos its a family resort and they don't want it being like a club 18-30 place

We were refused a booking after we had actually booked it cos of our age (4 girls all 18)... just make sure you dont cause trouble and it should be fine. Is it a single sex group or mixed?

I had a similar problem last year and called them and they said it was basically about keeping it a 'family' place. I was 17 and my bf was 18 and they let us in even after we declared our ages on the form. We had no problems when picking up the keys either. I think your best bet is to call them and check it out though

Hi, im thinking about booking a 4 night stay for my boyfriend and myself and we are both under 21. did they not even ask for ages when making the booking? and did you not need id to prove you were over 21 for both making the booking and turning up to check in on the day?

I've booked to go to Elvedon but my boyfriend turns 21 the day we leave! I'm 18 but can make myself look older, really stressing about this as it's not cheap and is a long drive! When I rang them they said because we were underage we could have a hotel room but I booked a villa for the self catering. Someone please put my mind at rest and tell me what's the best way to do it?!!!

Hi,

I'm thinking about going with my friend and we are both 18, did you get a parent to book it as it says that you have to be 21 to book it online?? Also can you only have a hotel room and not a villa? Me and my friend want to go for a spa weekend surely if we are just going for that we are able to go? Can anyone advise me!

Thanks!

6 of us are wanting to go, all 17 do you like they would notice if we hid someone then got a parent to come in then leave. (Hide so we don't have to pay for an extra person)
