Fun Passes, Activity Bundles and day passes

Fun Passes

Fun Passes allow you access to our entertainment complex. With these you can use the pools, participate in the kids' activities, and use the leisure and entertainment facilities - which includes our bars, restaurants, and some sports and leisure activities. Some activities are subject to an additional cost. Fun Passes are included in the total cost of your holiday when you book directly with us, either on our website or through our contact centre, and when you book through a travel agent. But don't forget, if you are one of our promotional customers, you can add your Fun Passes on My Haven Holiday when you amend your optional extras. You will be given a Fun Pass for each guest listed on your booking. If you have booked your holiday privately with an owner, you will need to purchase a Fun Pass to access all of the facilities - the owner you are letting from can arrange this for you.

Activity Bundles
If you enjoy doing lots of activities and planning your holiday before you arrive, then our Activity Bundle is just the thing for you.
When you buy an Activity Bundle, you get a bundle of either 10 or 20 passes that you can redeem online before you get here against a whole range of activities. Remember, should you need them; you can always book and pay for any extra activities when you're on the park.

If you have already booked a holiday and wish to buy an Activity Bundle, go to www.haven.com and log into 'My Account'. Once you have logged into your account click on 'view current holiday bookings', select your booking and click on 'add optional extras'. If we still have Activity Bundles available, you can select either a 10 or 20 bundle depending on your preference. Activity Bundles must be purchased at least 48 hours before your holiday arrival date. And with our online booking system open up until midnight the day before you arrive, you can book your activities last minute, subject to availability.

After you have made your booking and purchased your Activity Bundle, simply visit www.myhavenholiday.com where you can see all of the activities and times available to book. Some activities may require more than one pass. Activities do vary by park.

Don't worry if you don't buy your Activity Bundle before you get on holiday - you can still buy your activities on park on a pay-as-you-go basis, subject to availability.

How much are Activity Bundles?

Activity Bundle 1 includes 10 passes for £50.
Activity Bundle 2 includes 20 passes for £100. 

Available online only.

How can I book activities before I arrive?

Once you’ve booked your holiday and bought your Activity Bundle online, simply visit My Haven Holiday where you can see all of the activities and times available to book.

Day passes

Day Passes allow your friends and family, not staying on the park, to come and visit you and use all of the same facilities you can as a guest.

Important: There are a limited number of Day Passes available each day at some of our parks — prices will vary by park. Please call the park you want to visit before you arrive to confirm availability and to avoid disappointment.
If I don't use all the passes in my bundle can they be used for my next break?
Yes, but they are only valid for the 2018 season, you will need your booking confirmation of when the Activity Bundle was purchased to reuse your bundle. Please note: Activity Bundles are non-refundable.
