There is definitely corruption in that booking system! The SO ALWAYS manages to get what he wants,
whereas I'm ALWAYS left with the bread crumbs. :twisted:

This is what one could currently grab if one wanted to go to the KTP during that period.

Now - where do those nights and cabins come from? First deposit is only due end of next week...
Travel agents won't return unsold nights yet.

Only explanation to me is once again: Someone booked out the whole camp to make sure he / she
got enough units that were needed and dropped the rest before payments are due.

And that's how others don't get what they want if they don't look at the right time for returned accommodation :evil:

Is there a limit on the number of units a single private individual can book? -O-

As far as I know, there is not; it would be easy to overcome if there were ;-)

Convince me with reasons I cen see as well, RP and Lis :twisted:

There has always been rumours about being able to book ahead if you request the whole camp.
Just like with the travel agents getting priority, Lis. 0:

And I think, that 4 units is not that much for a private household, RP. O**

Somebody can book ahead if not the situation would not look like that \O

There is certainly something rotten in the booking system, we have seen that over and over again.

I remember once at Storm's River Mouth camp that I had tried until the day of arrival to get one of the cabins closest to the sea for all the days that we were there and not having to change after two days. When we arrived the cabin that I had tried to get for the whole time was empty and continued to be empty for the next three days 0=

(Mel - "Now - where do those nights and cabins come from? First deposit is only due end of next week...

I always assumed some units randomly pop up simply because the person(s) perhaps had to change plans due to illness, other family issues (wedding, etc), or just decided to go earlier/later, so they cancel the booking at that time. -O-
