Me again - site fees!!?

Post by Jennieccles » 2 years ago

Is there anywhere online I can find out what the exact site fees are on particular parts of particular parks? Or do I just have to call the site directly and ask?

I'd suspect you'd have to call and ask.

I rather doubt it's something they'd openly advertise. The large discrepancies between Parks (and in some areas on the same Parks) would not I would think be something they'd want in the public domain. :smile:

As Steve says you will have to ask on park because of the variation from park to park and within each park. It is also possible that some parks will have 'promotional' pitches with site fees being slightly lower than normal.

I telephoned a park today and asked for price and they told me, I just don't understand the need to add an extra £540 if you buy private : :angryfire:

Eh? So if we don't buy our caravan through Haven, they add £450 onto the site fees? Even if the payment etc goes through them? Talk about ripping you off at every angle eh?

Just to be clear, Haven DON'T ADD £540 to your site fees if you buy privately.

The site fees are the same for EVERYBODY, it is just that Haven reward owners who buy from them by giving a DISCOUNT on their site fees.

On the park you are looking at the discount is £540, but this varies from park to park from £540 to as low as around £230.

Hmmm. I don't mean to appear rude, but to me it doesn't matter how it's dressed up with semantics, the £540 may be seen by BL as a bonus for those who buy from them. However I have no doubt it's also there to "incentivise" new owners to take that option rather than buy privately?

They also I suspect see it as a "due" to reclaim lost commision even though they are taking a healthy percentage of the private vendors sale price anyway?

Not rude at all Steve :big_grin: I agree with most of what you say, but it is important that prospective owners understand how the system works.

Many owners have bought privately and the amount they have saved on the initial cost of their caravan can equate to many years of 'lost' discounts e.g. a saving of £10k is just under 20 years at £540 making buying privately a very good option with regard to site fees.

They don't hide the fees at all go onto the haven website and click holiday home ownership then click find out more then click on parks then Choose the park you want then click browse around map they are colour coded by site fees on most Parks!! Looking at ours it is the amount you pay if you buy through haven!!
