Within at least one week before departure, you will receive your travel documents and tickets. We advise checking the airport's website a day in advance to confirm the current departure time of your flight. Please note that Puurenkuur is not responsible for any costs related to potential changes in flight schedules or cancellations.

We will then proceed to book and bill your flights at the current fare. However, if we receive your payment after the 24-hour period, any differences in price will be charged to you.
Extra surcharges fort he flight

• Wait for final confirmation of your accommodation from Puurenkuur before booking any flights. You will receive this confirmation within 24 hours after booking.
• Stay updated on any flight changes and inform Puurenkuur so that we can adjust transfer times accordingly.
• Any additional accommodation costs resulting from flight changes should be paid directly to Puurenkuur.
• Please carefully review the airline's conditions before your trip.
• When booking flights directly, we recommend insuring your tickets. The cancellation insurance offered by Puurenkuur does not cover the cost of flights booked directly by you.
• Print out your flight details and provide them to Puurenkuur so that we can arrange your transfers accordingly.
What is included in my booking
Every programme on our website provides a clear breakdown of what is included and excluded. Since the 1st of January 2012, prices published exclude flight fares. Almost all programmes advertised include transfers from the airport to the hotel.
Due to fluctuations in flight fares and the fact that more and more clients prefer to book flights departing from other airports than Amsterdam (Schiphol), we are more flexible and can offer you the best flight schedules. You can depart from either regional or international airports.
How are the travel dates determined
Holidays are always indicated in full days. If you book a holiday without transport, you should bear in mind that you have to abide by the check in and checkout times of the hotel. If you are travelling by plane to your destination, the departing day is counted as the first day of your holiday. It could be the case that your first day starts with a departure time of 23.00 hours, and the final day ends with an arrival time (back home) of 08.00 hours.
The day of departure will be the first day of your holiday and the day of returning will be the last day of your holiday. It could be the case that if you are booking a 10 day holiday, you will only spend 8 days at the destination itself due to the flying time. This indication of travel dates is a standard international system.
How do I book treatments which are included in my package
Treatments which are included in your programme are reserved by us prior to arrival. Of course it is possible to book extra treatments. You can book these extra treatments directly by contacting the hotel or spa. This request will depend on availability and costs for extra treatments should be paid directly to the hotel or spa. Puurenkuur is not responsible for the reservations of extra treatments directly at the hotel or spa.
Conditions of payment
We kindly ask that you respect the following conditions of payment.
Upon booking your trip, you should fulfill payment of 50% of the total trip’s cost. We kindly request you to settle the full cost of any cancelation insurance policy, travel insurance policy and booking fees as well. The remaining value of your trip should be in Puurenkuur’s receipt a minimum six weeks prior to the date of departure. In the case of a so-called ‘last-minute booking’, whereby the departure date falls within the aforementioned six week period, full payment should be completed within 24 hours of placing the booking, referencing your issued reservation number.
Important! For bookings including flight tickets, we request pre-payment of the the full price of any flight tickets be made within 24 hours of booking (we can provide receipt of payment). Once payment has been received, Puurenkuur will definitively secure tickets at the then current rate. Where payment is received after a 24 hour period has lapsed, any price fluctuations will be accounted for by the client. Where payment for the trip is not received in time, Puurenkuur reserves the right to withdraw from their contract with the client. In this instance, stipulations applying to ‘cancellation by the client’ become effective.
What are the possible means of payment? The invoice issued to you will contain all the details you need in order to affect payment. There are a number of ways in which to pay: via booking form (using IDEAL banking in the Netherlands only), cash, online banking or by credit card. (Credit card fees apply, as follows, as a percentage of the total travel costs: VISA and Mastercard at 2.9%; American Express at 2.85%.) In the case of a ‘last-minute booking’, payment should be made in the form of express or faster bank transfer. Overseas payments require IBAN and BIC codes and take longer than domestic bank transfers.

Passport and visa
Passport and visa
It is your responsibility to identify all passport and other official requirements for your trip and to ensure you allow adequate time to obtain the required documentation. Please note that many countries require that your passport is valid for six months beyond the period of your stay. Requirements can change and it is your responsibility to ensure that you comply with applicable passport and visa requirements and take all necessary documents with you to gain access to any country or region to which you make travel arrangements. If you fail to do so, you will be solely responsible for any cost, loss, or damage which you or Puurenkuur incurs as a result of your failure. For regular updates on visa requirements or any conflictions in particular regions, see the Foreign Commonwealth Office Website www.fco.gov.uk
Please consult your local GP or visit the relevant Embassy websites for information on immunisation and other necessary precautions.
SGR and calamity insurance
Puurenkuur is a member of SGR – a Dutch national body which guarantees the protection of funds pre-paid to member travel agents and organisations on the part of the consumer. All holidays and trips contained on the pages of this website fall under the SGR guarantee. This guarantee ensures consumers are reimbursed any payments made prior to their travelling, should the travel company through which they booked be financially unable to deliver, as per agreed in the contract.
Puurenkuur is also a member of Stichting Calamiteitenfonds Reizen. Within reach of this agreement fall all holidays and trips advertised on the pages of this website, with the exception of those within the Netherlands. The Calamiteitenfonds ensures that consumers 1) are reimbursed (part of) the costs associated with their trip, should Puurenkuur be unable to properly deliver the holiday following the occurance of a calamity 2) are reimbursed any necessary excess costs incurred, should Puurenkuur need to adapt the holiday or prematurely end the holiday following the occurance of a calamity. For further details on this protection, please visit www.calamiteitenfonds.nl. The term ‘calamity’ here signifies an abnormal occurance as a result of war or natural disaster. A cost of €2.50 is added per booking to go towards this insurance.
Puurenkuur travel and cancellation insurance
Good insurance cover whilst travelling is an abslute necessity. Puurenkuur therefore prescribes a travel insurance policy which covers - as a minimum - medical, emergency and transport assistance and assistance in accidents. If your travel insurance is with another firm, please supply us with your policy number. Cover for luggage and valuables is advisable. Puurenkuur works together with Allianz Global Assistance The market leader, Allianz Global Assistance has been operating in the travel industry for over 50 years. As the name suggests, Allianz offers worldwide assistance with a multitude of options to suit your specific travel needs and preferences. Allianz remains first and foremost in its combined offering of travel- , cancellation and assistance insurances. Allianz operates around the globe, 24/7.
No matter how thoroughly you have planned your trip, there is always a chance you will have to cut short your holiday due to any number of unexpected occurances, such as an illness, accident or death. In these instances, we offer the Allianz Global Assistance travel insurance. This covers emergency services, repatriation, luggage, accidents and medical costs. Puurenkuur offers package B.
World-wide cover € 2,75 per person per day
Europe-wide cover € 1,85 per person per day
Policy costs - €4.52
Puurenkuur cancellation insurance
In collaboration with Allianz Global Assistance, Puurenkuur has developed a unique cancellation insurance policy, relating specifically to travel retreats; not only does this cover any unexpected medical conditions preventing you from travelling, but also accounts for psychological or emotional reasons causing you to cut cut short your retreat. This is valid both prior to and during the time of travel.
Valid medical conditions preventing travel are: serious illness, an accident involving yourself, travel companion(s) or immediate family members (1st or 2nd degree relatives) or death of any of the aforementioned; involuntary redundancy; employment secured following a period of redundancy; pregnancy; divorce or withdrawal from a co-habitation agreement; re-sitting an exam as part of a course of multiple years’ study, which can only be sat during the period of travel; receipt of an allocated tenancy agreement (whose term begins during or 30 days prior to the date of travel); life-threatening condition or death of a pet dog, cat or horse (up to 7 days before departure). Valid emotional or psychological reasons during the retreat itself can be significant emotional reaction, physical complaints resulting from treatments or products employed as part of treatments.
So what makes this policy different?
Regular cancellation insurance policies protect you in instances such as breaking a leg a week before your holiday. This is classed as a ‘medical’ reason. Puurenkuur’s policy goes one step further, covering you in special cases, such as discovering an allergic reaction to an oil applied during Ayurvedic treatments in India. As oils are a key part of Ayuredic treatments, remaining in India on such a retreat would be a pointless exercise.
The additional cover becomes effective as of the moment the policy is underwritten, up until the penultimate day of the trip. The cover is not valid in cases where, prior to travel, there was opportunity to consult a GP who may have concluded that travel was not appropriate. Cancellation of the retreat during the period of travel requires proof from a GP or other local authority and cancellations will be agreed upon consultation with Puurenkuur.
Costs as follows:
6,5% of the total price of the trip (excludes insurance tax, calculated 21% of the policy fee)
The policy fees equate to €5.45 (includes insurance tax, calculated at 21%)

Puurenkuur works in collaboration with Sunnycars, a renowned hire car company offering an ‘all-in’ concept (even where damages are incurred!).
