Flexible payment plans

With our new pay monthly option, you can now spread the cost of your Neilson holiday over a 3-18 month period and secure your holiday with a 10% deposit for Beach club holidays / £100pp for Ski holidays. Using your credit or debit card, this hassle-free payment option is designed to make your holiday planning easier and budgeting for your holiday a breeze.

  • Will it cost me extra to use flexible payment plans?
    No, there will be zero payment fees and no interest fees. You'll pay exactly what you'd pay if you paid for the entirety of your holiday at the time of booking.
  • Who's eligible to use flexible payment plans?
    It all depends on when you’re booking your holiday for. As long as you can make a minimum of three monthly payments and one final balance payment, 14 days before departure, you’ll be able to use our flexible payment plan.
  • Can I decide the date I make my monthly payments on?
    Yes! We have a choice of payment dates of either the 1st, 15th or 28th of the month. You’ll have to select the date of the month you’d like your payments to come out, so we can take the money straight out of the account you’re paying your deposit with, on your preferred date.
  • Can I make changes to my monthly payment plan?
    Once you’ve set up your payment plan, you will not be able to modify any aspect of the payment plan. But you can check when your next payment is due, how many payments are left, and make additional payments in your My Neilson account, if you make any additional payments on your booking or booking amendments, your plan will automatically adjust your monthly payments to reflect this.
  • Can I cancel my monthly payment plan?
    Yes, you’re in complete control of your plan and can cancel at any time by cancelling your booking.
  • What happens if I add to the total of my booking by buying extras like meals or seats?
    That’s no problem, we’ll just add it to your balance which will automatically adjust your future payment amounts. 
  • Can I change how much I pay every month?
    No. Once you’ve paid your deposit we will spread your outstanding balance over the remaining payments, however if you make any overpayments this will automatically adjust your monthly payments to a lower amount.
  • The card I paid with will expire before the end of monthly my payment plan – can I change it?
    Yes, just log in to My Neilson and make a small payment with a new credit or debit card (£1 will do it), this will automatically change your payment plan to use this new card for all future payments.
  • What happens if my card's expired?
    When we notice a payment card has an expiry date before the next payment date we will email you remind you to update your payment card details.
  • Can I make monthly payments using a credit card?
    Yes, you can pay using a credit card or debit card.
  • Will you remind me about my monthly payments?
    Yes, we’ll send you a helpful reminder 5 days before each payment.
  • What is the final payment due date?
    You should clear the final balance 14 days prior to departure, this will happen automatically if you're on a payment plan.
  • How much deposit do I have to pay?
    For Beach club holidays the the deposit for flexible payment plans is 10%. Standard deposit for other bookings is 25%.
    For Ski holidays the deposit for flexible payment plans is £100pp. Standard deposit is £250pp
  • I already have a booking, can I move onto a flexible payment plan?
    Unfortunately not, customers who have an existing booking or did not select a payment plan at the time of booking, will not be able to switch to a flexible payment plan.
  • How do I add flexible payments to my booking?
    When you reach the 'secure payment' page you will be given the option to pay the full amount, pay monthly or pay a deposit. Select Pay Monthly to see your payment schedule and initial payment amount.
  • How many months can I spread my payments?
    Your payment has to have a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 18 months, the plan will automatically spread the payments over the number of months between booking and when you travel.
  • Are my payment plans secure?
    We use tokenisation which is a security method used to protect a customer's sensitive payment information, such as credit card numbers, with a unique, random set of characters called a “token.” This process helps us to keep your payment data safe during transactions because the actual card information is not being used or stored. This is a standard used by all of the UK banks.

Can we arrange a 1-2-1 nanny for our child with additional needs?

We want all children to be able to do their thing to the max! The activities we offer in our kids' clubs are full of fun and adventure, with the health and well-being of the children at the heart of what we do. Large groups, new environments and exciting activities can sometimes be a little overwhelming for children with additional needs, even if they thrive in mainstream education. When this is the case, they may benefit from our one-to-one care.

Designed to ensure all children are getting the incredible level of care they deserve as well as being able to safely enjoy activities as part of a group along with their new friends in the kids' club.

Talk to us about our one-to-one care service and if it's right for you and your family, please call us on 0333 014 3351 or email
