COVID-19 POLICY

OUR COMMITMENT

Rest assured, we are committed to the safety of all our guests, team, and visitors. We are committed to working with you to make any adjustments to your reservations, in line with the required NZ Government Covid-19 restrictions. We continue to keep the safety and wellbeing of our customers and team at the forefront of our thinking. Our COVID-19 Policy has been developed to keep all guests informed about what we are doing in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. If you cannot find the information you are looking for below, please email us for assistance. Blue Lake TOP 10 Holiday Park is committed to providing a safe, clean and enjoyable Holiday Park for all of our guests to holiday in over Summer.

When staying at Blue Lake TOP 10 Holiday Park, our standard terms and conditions apply except for the following changes.

VACCINATION CERTIFICATE REQUIREMENTS

Full COVID–19 Vaccination Certificate requirements for all guests staying from 15th December 2021. No double vaccination = No stay.

As per NZ Government policy for hospitality businesses, Blue Lake TOP 10 Holiday Park will be required to operate a no jab + no vaccination certificate = no stay policy for all guests, visitors, staff and contractors aged 16 years and over.

The reservation holder is responsible to ensure the entire group in the booking is fully vaccinated and can provide the required proof of NZ Government Digital Vaccination Certificate prior to their stay.

Children under the age of 16 years old at the time of their visit will not be required to show proof of vaccination. If you are unable to get a vaccination for medical reasons, you will be required to show proof of your Government approved exemption.

Your honesty, co-operation and kindness will ensure that we can make the most of Summer at the lake.

PROOF OF NEW ZEALAND GOVERNMENT DIGITAL VACCINATION CERTIFICATE

From 15 November, the New Zealand Government will be providing eligible New Zealanders with a NZ Government Digital Vaccination Certificate as proof of full vaccination. The Reservation Holder will be required to show this certificate for all eligible guests in your booking party. We expect the following approach to be adopted:

Proof of full vaccination for all guests 16 years+ must provide on or prior to check in. This can also include proof from “my covid record” app.

Please be assured that all information provided will remain private and secure. Please note, the purple card issued at the time of vaccination will not be accepted as proof.

COVID–19 “NO VACCINATION” CANCELLATIONS

We acknowledge that not everyone wishes to be vaccinated against COVID–19. However, in order to fully operate during peak season, Blue Lake TOP 10 Holiday Park is bound by NZ Government legislation. If you are not vaccinated and you have a booking with us including or after the 15th December 2021 please contact us, and you will be entitled to a full refund. Cancellations will only be accepted via email to info@bluelaketop10.co.nz

BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE

While we’re all itching to return to our favourite holiday spots and explore a new part of New Zealand, it’s hard to feel confident during uncertain times. We understand that uncertainty and, with that in mind, have introduced a Book with Confidence Guarantee, which applies if you are no longer able to travel due to COVID-19 related developments.

The Book with Confidence Guarantee means, in certain conditions, you can:

• Change your bookings dates - please note, new rates may apply for new period dates.

• Cancel your booking without penalty, and be offered a 12-month credit. Any credit offered cannot be transferred to another party, nor can it be redeemed for cash at any time.

• Bookings made through a 3rd Party source (Booking.com, Expedia) need to be contacted directly to receive a refund as their terms and conditions will apply.

• If you are amending your booking or requesting a cancellation that is not COVID-19 related our standard terms and conditions apply.

What is the Book with Confidence Guarantee?

For bookings made from 7th May 2020, the Book with Confidence Guarantee is applicable if you are no longer able to travel due to COVID-19 related developments and booked directly via www.top10.co.nz or directly with Blue Lake TOP 10 Holiday Park.

For example: you become sick with COVID-19 or someone immediately connected to you does and you are forced into self-isolation, or an Alert Level change means travel becomes impossible, or there is a Government mandate for you not to travel in your local area/region or the area you intend to travel to.

In these and other similar cases there will be no charges levied to make changes to your booking dates. We will provide a 12-month credit with no cancellation or amendment charges added. In exceptional circumstances, determined on a case by case basis, we may provide a full refund, also with no cancellation fees.

In the case of a request for a COVID-19 related amendment on personal grounds, guests may be requested to provide a medical certificate to confirm the medical grounds on which the request is based.

Please be aware that where your request to amend/cancel a booking was made prior to 7th May 2020 and/or is not linked to COVID-19 related matters, normal T&C’s will apply.

Where you made your booking will determine where and with who you need to request any booking amendment or cancellation.

If the booking was made directly with the park over the phone, by email or on the park website, you will need to contact us directly on 0800 808 292.

If the booking was made via the TOP 10 group website (www.top10.co.nz), please contact TOP 10 on 0800 867 836 for any amendment requests.

If the booking was made via a third party, including online travel agents (i.e. booking.com, Expedia), traditional travel agents or other 3rd parties, then any request for a refund should to be direct to that organisation in the first instance.

If you’re not sure how you booked, please contact the park directly for assistance.

Eligibility

Any person, whether a TOP 10 Club Member or non-member/regular guest, who makes a booking through www.top10.co.nz or directly with Blue Lake TOP 10 Holiday Park, is eligible for this guarantee.

This Book with Confidence Guarantee is in place whilst the COVID-19 related Alert Levels 1 - 4 are in force in New Zealand and will be reassessed at each government authorised Alert Level change or at any other time deemed appropriate by the TOP 10 Holiday Parks Group.
