Update 20th Feb 2024

It is now just under 5 months until our holiday. Barry has booked the ferry, including your room and meal choices; Chris has sent you all individual emails indicating the TOTAL amount you are due to pay into the Meridian Bank Account before the 1st April 2024.

We are looking forward to a great time and your company.

The Club made the booking on behalf of members so that we can benefit from the ‘group discount’. The Club do not underwrite or guarantee the financial performance of the hotel, ferry company or any other organisations with whom we deal.

Members are invited to join the trip on the basis that they arrange their own travel/health insurance prior to the trip. The club can take no responsibility for the welfare of individual members, nor for their safe return to the UK in the case of accident or sickness. In addition we request that everyone takes a current ‘UK Global Health Insurance Card’ with them on the trip. Please check that yours is up to date and renew if necessary.

Please also ensure that you have up to date 3rd party insurance cover which is a condition of club membership.

In summary by booking as part of our group for the holiday you agree that:

• You are aware that the club is not acting as agent for the hotel and carries no responsibility for non-performance of their contractual responsibilities.
• Riders are advised to inspect the relevant websites to satisfy themselves that they are able to fully comply with the latest governmental health and vaccination requirements (for example Covid) in the UK and in any country we plan to visit (i.e. Holland).
• When sharing with another person, both people are jointly and severally liable for the full cost of the room.
• Should anyone fall ill during the holiday it is their personal responsibility to arrange for medical care and any delay in their return home. You are encouraged to ensure that you have adequate insurance cover, and a valid UK Global Health Insurance Card.
• Have 3rd party cycling insurance cover.  Click here for more details

The Hotel at the Hague is only approximately 20km from the ferry port. Stayokay have agreed that we can leave our bags in the luggage room on the morning we arrive, enabling us to have an unencumbered day of cycling on our first day in Holland.


Update 3rd November

All available rooms have now been taken. Further vacancies may be possible if you can persuade another member to share a room!

We are planning a holiday in The Hague from the 8th – 15th July 2024. We will be staying in the Stayokay in The Hague from 9th to the 14th ( 5 nights). The 8th and 15th will be overnight on the boat in cabins.

There are 3 categories of rooms:
– 2 bedded comfort rooms at E100 (E50 per person/night) – 2 single beds, towels incl.
– Family rooms at E156.20 (E78.10 per person/night with 2 sharing) – 2 single beds & bunks, towels incl.
– 4 Bedded rooms at E141.20 (E70.60 per person/night with 2 sharing) – 2 sets of bunks, towels extra.

In addition there is:
– City tax of E5.35/person/night
– Breakfast is E9.50 per person /night
– The evening meal is E15.50 per person/ night but the hotel is near the centre of The Hague so we will have 4 nights eating in the hostel and 1 night eating out.

This adds a total E136.25 to the room cost.

Travel will be on the ferry from Harwich to the Hook of Holland which will be booked by Barry (at extra cost) when the rates are available.

PLEASE NOTE that the above prices are for 2023 and are indicative.

We are only able to hold the option on the rooms for 2 weeks. If you are interested please find the person to share with and send a deposit of £100 each via bank transfer to the Meridian Account. At the same time please email Heather, copied to Chris with your rooms choices and your room sharing person.

Payment is preferred by bank transfer and should be made to
Meridian Cycling Club
Sort Code: 09 06 66
A/C No: 43226774

THERE ARE ONLY A LIMITED NUMBER OF ROOMS, SO IT IS FIRST COME FIRST SERVED. Please indicate your first and second choices with your deposit and the person you plan to share with.

As before we (the club and/or the organisers) are unable to take on any risk associated with the inability of Stayokay to fulfil their side of the transaction. This lies directly with the person making the reservation. Also you should agree with your ‘room sharer’ who pays the extra should one person pull out at a late date.

CLOSING DATE 2nd July 2023.
