Booking with Barracudas multi-activity day camps couldn't be simpler! You can either book online by registering/logging in or click to find your venue to start the process, or give our customer service team a call on 01480 467 567.
We have a number of different payment options. You can either pay via credit/debit card, Childcare Vouchers or Tax-Free Childcare online or over the phone. If you book early you can pay a deposit and the remainder at a later stage.
Yes. The prices and dates for our activity camps are released in November and from this point up until the balance due date you can secure your booking with a deposit. After the balance due dates bookings will need to be paid in full at the time of booking.
Yes! You can spread the cost of your booking over several months with our interest free Easy Payment Plan (EPP). You just need to secure your booking with a deposit then you can spread the cost with equal monthly payments up to the balance due date. You can select this option when booking online, or with our team over the phone.
We'll debit your card on the first working day of each month, with the final payment on the following dates: Easter 2nd March, summer 1st July. (Huntingdon half terms: 3rd February, 1st May and 1st October)
Our balance due dates for the following seasons are:
Easter: Monday 2nd March 2020
Summer: Wednesday 1st July 2020
Half term camps (Bishop's Stortford and Huntingdon only):
February half term: 3rd February 2020 (Huntingdon camp only)
May half term: 12th May 2020 (Bishop's Stortford and Huntingdon camps only)
October half term: 12th October 2020 (Huntingdon camp only)
Yes. You can use childcare vouchers as full or part payment. You can either book online and select this option or notify us over the phone. Either way your booking will save on our system for 7 days until we receive your childcare vouchers. After this date, if we haven't received payment for your booking it will be automatically removed.
However, if you are booking within 21 days of the booking start date you will be required to pay by a credit/debit card at the time of booking and then be reimbursed once we receive your childcare vouchers.
For full details please see our Childcare voucher page.
Yes, you can pay in full or make a part payment using Tax-Free Childcare. You can select the option to pay by Tax-Free childcare online and enter your long reference number (1st letter of your child's name followed by the 1st 3 letters of your child's surname then 5 numbers) or let us know when you book by phone. If you do not have your long reference number at the time of booking please notify us of this by email within 24 hours of completing the booking.
Like childcare voucher payments, the booking will save on our system for 7 days. If we haven't received the minimum payment for you booking by this time the booking will be automatically removed. If you are booking within 21 days of the booking start date you will need to make the full payment by credit/debit card at the time of booking which we will reimburse you once we receive the Tax-Free Childcare payment.
Please see our Childcare voucher page for more details on Tax-Free Childcare.
CPP is there for the unexpected things that sometimes crop up. We all know they happen and when they do it's important that you're not left feeling out of pocket. Therefore you can cancel right up to the last working day before your child's first day in any given week. No fuss, no reason, no proof - all you need is the CPP.
It's great cover and brings you complete peace of mind for only £3 per day. Your full refund is for all of the days missed. The only thing you won't get back is the CPP premium.
For cancellations before camp we just need an email from you. Claims made after your child has started their first day at camp (in any given week) need to be supported with a doctor's note/appointment card and the claim must be made within 28 days of the last day of camp in the given season for which you require the refund. Where illness cannot be supported with a doctor's note/appointment card you will need to complete a claim form with further details.
Without the Customer Protection Plan you can't cancel and claim a refund or credit note for missed days or cancellation, or make up any missed days later in the season, under any circumstances. If you need to switch your dates and we still have space on the dates you'd like to move to, we can make these changes. Please note however, changes can only be made if at least 10 working days notice is given.
We understand that your childcare plans can change. We want to be as flexible as possible for you, and also as fair as possible to all customers. If you need to switch your dates and we still have space on the dates you'd like to move to, we can make these changes. Please note however, changes can only be made if at least 10 working days before your child is due to attend. Please see Terms & Conditions for full details.
After you've made your booking you'll receive an email confirmation with all your booking details attached. Please make sure you check your invoice and let us know right away if anything is incorrect. Responsibility for all booking details lies with the person who made the booking.
Before your child comes to camp there are a few pre-arrival forms to complete. We can't accept any child on camp without an Essential Information form. To complete this you need to login to your Barracudas account and access the form under the 'Bookings' tab.
Other forms you may need to fill out include:
