Q. What is Choose Your Holiday Home?
Choose Your Holiday Home is available at 3 of our holiday parks; Rockley Park, Weymouth Bay and Seaview.
It allows our guests to choose which location and which holiday home they stay in on park during their time with us.
 
Should your booking be eligible for Choose Your Holiday Home, you'll receive an email from Haven inviting you to log into My Haven Holiday and pre-select your holiday home and location ahead of your break.
 
Eligibility includes having availability in the grade or a higher grade of accommodation your holiday was booked in, for example if you booked a Prestige holiday home at Rockley Park, to be eligible for Choose Your Holiday Home, there would need to be availability in a Prestige holiday home or a higher grade on your chosen dates, for you to book.

Choose Your Holiday Home is only available to guests who have booked through www.haven.com or through a newspaper promotion, if you have booked through your park or our Haven Contact Centre you will need to log on to the Haven website and create an account.

Q. I come to Haven regularly. Why do I have to pay when I was given the area I wanted for free previously?
The objective of Choose Your Holiday Home is to see, that for a small charge, for those guests that do make a request, that they get the holiday home and location of their choosing, rather than being automatically allocated by our system.
 
By being part of choosing your holiday home as an add-on to your booking, you are guaranteeing your location on park.

You currently cannot link your booking to another – you can choose your holiday home and the let your friends or family know your location so they can choose a holiday home close by too.
 
Q. I can't view Choose Your Holiday on My Haven Holiday. Why is this?
This may be because you are viewing the scheme outside of our season open dates of March to October.
 
Q. I am having issues with the website, what do I do?
If you have followed the step-by-step guide on the website, and these FAQs don't answer your query, please give our park teams a call and they will be more than happy to help.
 
Q. I can see there are no more holiday homes available in my chosen criteria, will more become available at a later date?
We have a limited number of holiday homes available per park. This means that all availability is on a first come, first served basis. Due to the limited number of holiday homes, availability may change due to cancellations but this is likely to be rare due to the nature of the scheme and the holiday homes available per grade.

Q. Can I reserve the location and book it later?
We only allow guests to choose their holiday home location once an original booking has been made.
