Is it possible to hold a room?

Yes, it is possible to place a room on hold. This allows you time to consider your decision without the risk of the room being booked by someone else. Please contact us to arrange this.

Keep in mind that the availability of placing a room on hold depends on the hotel and the timing of your request. Therefore, we recommend reaching out to us early so we can check availability and options with the respective hotel.

If you have any questions or need more time to decide, please let us know. We are happy to assist you further.


Is it possible to have a tailor made program?

Absolutely! We value your preferences and strive to tailor your stay to your needs. You can add additional preferences to your booking. Whether you have specific room requests, dietary preferences, or other special requests, let us know and our team will do its utmost to accommodate them.


What is included in the online prices?

Our online prices do not include:

  • Flights (though we are happy to assist in finding connections, see question 14)
  • SGR contribution (€5 per booking)
  • Calamity Fund contribution (€2.50 per 9 persons)


How do you calculate your starting prices?

On our website, we display starting prices based on double occupancy rooms during the low season. Please be aware that additional charges may apply if
you book a single occupancy room or stay during a different season than the one upon which the starting price is based. These surcharges can vary depending on the specific season and availability at the time of booking.

For most of our hotels, you can request prices for your preferred dates by filling in the desired date and room details. We strive to ensure transparency in
our pricing. However, if you have any uncertainties, specific preferences, or require further information, please don't hesitate to ask for assistance.


What if I find a better price somewhere else?

We provide a lowest price guarantee to ensure you can book with confidence. When you make a booking with us, we guarantee that you will receive the best available price for your stay. If you find a lower price elsewhere for the same accommodation and under the same booking conditions, we will adjust our price accordingly or offer you an additional benefit.

Furthermore, we consistently offer extras for our customers, such as complimentary upgrades, spa gift vouchers (credit to spend in the spa), free access to the spa, and more.


How can I book my holiday?

You have several options for booking your holiday. You can book directly through our website for your preferred dates, room type, and program. Alternatively, upon receiving a travel proposal, you can inform us via email, WhatsApp, or phone that you wish to confirm your booking. We kindly request the following information from you so that we can finalize your booking promptly:

  • Names as they appear on the passport + birthdates.
  • Address details of the main booker.
  • Any dietary preferences and/or allergies that we should notify the hotel about in advance.
  • Whether you will be booking your own flights or would like us to assist with that.
  • Whether you require travel and/or cancellation insurance.


When I book, is it directly confirmed?

No, all our trips are on request. When you make a booking, whether online, via email, by phone, etc., we always need to reconfirm availability with the respective accommodation. Therefore, your booking is not immediately confirmed, and we will notify you within 24 hours whether the booking can be finalized or not.

You will receive an immediate automatic confirmation from us upon receiving your booking. However, it will also indicate that you should wait patiently as the booking is pending confirmation.


When is my booking confirmed?

Upon receiving your booking, we will promptly forward it to the hotel and aim to confirm it within 24 hours on business days. You will then receive a definitive confirmation email from us. This email will outline all the details of your booking and what is included in the trip. In some cases, particularly when accommodating preferences or handling special requests, it may take a bit longer to receive confirmation from the hotel. Rest assured, we will keep you informed throughout this process.


Why do I pay a contribution for SGR and Camality 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.


Calamity insurance

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 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.


Can I change my booking?

There are several reasons why you might want to change your booking. Below, we have outlined the most frequently requested options:

  • If you realize within 48 hours of booking that you would like to change the date, we can modify your booking at no cost. (Please note that different prices may apply for both accommodation and flights in another season.)

  • If you wish to book a different program/room or prefer full board, we will make these changes at no cost, provided the hotel has availability. (Different prices may apply if you choose a higher room category or a more extensive program.)

  • If you booked more than 48 hours ago and want to change the date of your trip, we will first check the availability and terms of the hotel. If the hotel's terms are flexible, we will change the booking for you. If the hotel charges extra, we will pass these costs on to you. (Different prices may apply in another season.)

  • If you booked flights through us and wish to change them, we are also dependent on the terms and availability of the airline, as well as any additional costs they may charge. (Different prices may apply in another season.)


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.


Travel insurance

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.


Associated premiums:

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%)


If you are keen to explore more of your destination, it is also possible to hire a car from us at your arrival airport.  Puurenkuur works in collaboration with Sunnycars, a renowned hire car company offering an ‘all-in’ concept (even where damages are incurred!). With a guarantee of no additional charges, just one fixed price, it couldn’t be any simpler. The advantages of booking with Sunnycars are the company’s clear, ‘all-in’ quotes, optimum insurance cover, broad choice of vehicles, excellent organisation prior to your travel, free booking amendments and a 24/7 helpline. Sunnycars operates in over 90 countries worldwide. If you are considering hiring a car for your holiday, we would be pleased to accommodate your vehicle requirements – large or small, with or without aircon, 2,3,4 or 5 doors, cabrio or SUV. Please contact us to receive offers on the options available.

Some tips and advice….

Before you travel

  • When hiring a car abroad, the driver is required to carry a credit card in their name with them at all times, in addition to their passport and driving licence.
  • In case of an accident under the All-Inclusive or All-Inclusive PLUS packages, the damage is to be settled at the destination. On returning from your holiday you would invoice SUNNYCARS for the amount and will be promptly reimbursed for the amount.
  • Do your research and make yourself familiar with the local road traffic laws and highway code. Do vignettes or tolls apply? Are winter tyres obligatory? etc. 

Collecting your hire car

  • Thoroughly inspect the vehicle for pre-existing damage (scratches, dents, damage to windscreen and windows) and demand a copy of these listed on paper. Even (and especially) if the car hire representative claims this is not necessary.
  • If you intend to cross any country borders, communicate this to the car hire company in advance. 

Returning your hire car

  • Be sure to return the car within the timeframe agreed to avoid unnecessary additional charges
  • Inspect the car once more for damage and demand proof on paper of its state (a return protocol).
  • If you are returning the car outside of opening hours and posting keys through a letterbox, for example, take a photo of the car once returned. That way, you cannot be made accountable for any unfairly attributed repair costs.
  • You may be charged extra for additional cleaning if you return the car in an unreasonably dirty state.


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.


I have booked a spa package, how are the treatments scheduled?

The treatments included in a spa program are reserved in advance. In some cases, you are required to fill out a questionnaire before departure, requesting more information about your complaints, your preferences, and the purpose of your stay. Based on this questionnaire, the hotel notes your preferences and will create a treatment schedule. These schedules are sometimes sent in advance. If included, the schedule and your preferences will be discussed during the welcome consultation upon arrival at the hotel.


Is it possible to book extra treatments?

Certainly! If you know in advance which treatments you would like to add, we can arrange this for you. Depending on availability at the spa, the hotel can schedule these treatments in advance to prevent disappointment. Of course, you can also book treatments on-site based on availability. Payments for additional treatments booked must always be made locally at the spa.


What are the payment conditions?

The following payment rules apply to bookings: 

  • Deposit upon confirmation of booking: when booking your trip, a deposit of 50% of the total cost is required. The costs of travel and cancellation insurance, policy fees, and flight costs if applicable must be paid through the deposit.

Large hotel chains, especially, provide excellent amenities where your child can enjoy activities in the kids club while you indulge in spa treatments. Additional services such as babysitting or au pair options are available for an extra charge. If you request a baby cot when booking, a portable crib similar to a camping cot will be provided in your accommodation.

Which languages are spoken?

During our yoga retreats in the Netherlands, Dutch is the primary language as our (yoga) instructors are Dutch. If there are participants who do not speak or understand Dutch well, the instructor will provide some instructions in English as needed.

Solo travellers

Many of our wellness and spa trips are booked by solo travelers. Some of our locations are more suitable and attuned to solo travelers than others. For instance, you might find a community table where you can dine with others if you wish, or these locations may be small-scale, fostering a community of like-minded individuals. We are here to assist you in finding your ideal wellness journey. If you are looking for a specific destination to travel to alone, please contact one of our specialists.
