We recommend flying in to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport or Rotterdam Airport.
Coach company ResNova will be running a ticketed shuttle service to CenterParcs from both these airports (see right).
This service will be run directly by ResNova under the management of Janneke Hordijk and André de Jong, who successfully organised the coach transportation for all previous Marillion Weekends in Holland.
Trains to Amsterdam Schiphol are available from Eindhoven, Antwerp and Brussels airports.
Coach company Res Nova will again be running shuttles from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and Rotterdam Airport to CenterParcs on Thurs/Friday 23/24 March and returning on Monday 27 March in the morning.
If you require a seat on these shuttles you must complete and submit their booking form and payment FROM 4 January 2017 and NO LATER THAN 20 February 2017.

Return journeys on the shuttles from either airport will be as follows:
Adult: €39.50 per person
Child (4-15): €26 per person
Infant (0-3): Free
On Thursday 23 March the first shuttles will leave Schiphol from 12.00.
On Friday the first shuttles will leave Schiphol from 12.00.
There will be a continual service leaving the airport regularly (hourly subject to demand). (Appropriate departures will be leaving Rotterdam according to demand).
The last shuttle is likely to be scheduled to leave Amsterdam (Schiphol) and Rotterdam airports at around 16.30 both days, so please ensure that your flight arrives well before this time to allow for collecting bags and clearing passport control and customs.
On arrival at Schiphol, please make your way to the MEETING POINT in the centre of the hall. This point is mentioned on every information display all over Schiphol. The meeting point is painted in large white and red blocks (it can't be missed!). Res Nova coordinator Janneke will be waiting to direct you to the coaches waiting in front of the hall.
Return shuttles on Monday 27 March will be scheduled subject to demand.
The first shuttle is likely to be scheduled to depart for Amsterdam (Schiphol) airport at around 05:00 on Monday 27 March.
For the return to Schiphol airport, you will receive a ticket in your Welcome pack at Check-in detailing the bus number and the time of departure from Port Zélande.
Due to the traffic density expected on Monday morning, shuttles will leave Port Zélande approx 5 hours before departure flight times. (A list of departure times will also be posted on the Reception window for those who lose their tickets!!)
Res Nova representatives Janneke and André will be available at Reception at 17:00 Saturday 25 March to discuss any queries. (CenterParcs and Marillion staff will be unable to help with any queries)
If you are planning to extend your stay in Holland and will arrive before Thursday 23 March or depart after Monday 27 March you will still be able to arrange shuttle transfers to/from CenterParcs on the Thursday/Friday and Monday.
Please make this clear on your shuttle booking form.
TRAVELLING BY TRAIN / BUS / TAXI
If you are arriving by public transport we would strongly recommend that you travel to either Schiphol or Rotterdam airports and use the dedicated shuttle service.
Public transport to Ouddorp is only available from Rotterdam Central Station (via underground and 2 different buses – journey will take approximately 3 hours)
The nearest train station is Maassluis.
From Maassluis you can get a taxi to Port Zélande at a cost of about €100
Ticketing information is available at www.ov-chipkaart.nl (Dutch and English)
Alternatively check with your local Official Web Fan Club (listed at www.marillion.com/web) as they may be organising direct coach trips.
