Rules for Friends

Although Stichting Vrienden op de Fiets is a large organisation, it functions much like a family. This is only possible when everybody observes our house rules.

What to expect? As Friend, I am aware that:

  • I stay with private hosts, not at Bed & Breakfasts or hotels.
  • My guest address has its own house rules, which I respect and follow.
  • I can count on a made up bed of good quality and normal dimensions.
  • I will sleep in a fire-safe room -with window- that is accessible via permanent stairs.
  • I may use a shower and toilet, private or shared with members of the family.
  • I will be given the use of clean towels.
  • I can park my bicycle in a lockable bicycle shed.
  • I can count on a breakfast in the morning.
  • I can stay overnight for the special Friends' price upon showing a valid Friend card, and that my card is also valid for the person with whom I live together, children up to the age of 18 that still live at home and (great) grandchildren When I travel with friends, we each need our own card.

What do guest addresses expect of you? As Friend:

  • I arrive by cycle or on foot (skaters or canoers are also welcome and any other travellers using their own muscle power)
  • I do not arrive by car, unless my host agrees beforehand that I can make their place the starting point of my biking or hiking trip.
  • I do arrive in the afternoon and do depart in the early morning (after breakfast).
  • I enquire beforehand whether it would be possible to stay longer when I participate in, for example, a four-day biking or hiking event.

As Friend:

  • I always mention my Friend number, name and address when making a reservation.
  • I discuss the desired arrival and departure times beforehand, as well as any special requests such as bringing children or pets. 
  • I always show my Vrienden op de Fiets card and proof of identity on arrival.

Prices and possible extras

  • I pay my guest address for the overnight stay.
  • Overnight stay per person, including breakfast: €19
  • Overnight stay per child up to 12 years old: €9.50
  • Cancellation less than 24 hours prior to arrival: €9.50 for the first night
