Our core priority is to provide a fun and safe holiday for all our guests and our staff here at Mangawhai Heads Holiday park. To this end we have undertaken a thorough risk assessment of the effect Covid-19 may have for everyone using the park during the 2021-22 summer and autumn seasons. Alongside this we have listened carefully to the experts on the efficacy of vaccination in relation to the severity of the virus and its spread.

Mangawhai Heads Holiday Park has therefore made the decision to only recruit staff who are fully vaccinated, and to ensure that everyone is as safe as possible while in our care, we are also requiring that all guests, visitors, staff, and contractors are fully vaccinated. This policy will initially apply from 3rd December 2021 until 30 April 2022. The only exemptions are children who are under 12 on date of arrival and those holding a medical exemption certificate.

Our standard Terms and Conditions apply, except for the following addition.

Vaccination Requirements


The reservation holder is responsible to ensure the entire group in the booking is fully vaccinated and can provide the required official NZ Government proof.
Children under the age of 12 years old at the time of their visit will not be required to show proof of vaccination. If you are unable to get a vaccination for medical reasons, you will be required to show proof of your government approved exemption.

Proof of NZ Government Digital Vaccination Certificate

Official proof from a valid Government record of vaccination status or exemption must be provided for all guests in your party on arrival as a perquisite for checking in. Proof of age may also be requested for children under the age of 12

Wrist bands will be issued to all approved guests aged 2 and over which must be worn for your entire stay from 20th December – 8th Feb 2022

During your stay you might be requested by a member of the Mangawhai Heads Holiday Park team to provide this information.

Please be assured that all information provided will remain private and secure. Please note the purple card issued at the time of vaccination will not be accepted as proof.


COVID-19 “No Vaccination” | Cancellations

We acknowledge that not everyone wishes to be vaccinated against Covid-19. If you are not vaccinated and you have a booking with us between the 3rd December 2021 and 30th April 2022 please contact us and you will be entitled for a full cancellation refund. Cancellations will only be accepted via email.

COVID-19 Cancellation Policy due to travel restrictions

For existing Peak Season and Non-Peak Season bookings that cannot proceed due to NZ Government imposed Covid-19 domestic travel restrictions, we will be happy to credit the full amount to your account or alternatively we can provide a full refund. We kindly ask that you give us as much notice as possible of any cancellations.

This Cancellation Policy supersedes the standard cancellation policy on the booking website and is applicable right up to the arrival date.

This policy only comes into force when the NZ Government notifies of a travel restriction that affects your travel dates.

If you change dates, the rates for the “new” period apply, so there may be a deficit or a credit. We can advise of any differences in price before you make any changes.

Any credit is valid up to 30th June 2022 and subject to availability.

This does not cover any other  covid related reason including event cancellation, illness ,an unfavourable weather forecast, or failure to meet the requirements of our vaccination policy. We recommend you take out domestic travel insurance with a company covering Covid ( e.g. Southern Cross)

Please note that cancellations and refund terms and conditions may vary between booking platforms.
Please note that the cancellations and refund terms and conditions on the booking platform within which the booking was made take precedence.
