Is the Center Parcs Starter Park & Family Grocery Pack Worth It?

There are two types of Center Parcs grocery packs available for guests to choose from:

  1. Starter Pack
  2. Family Grocery Pack

If you reserve a pack, it will be inside your Center Parcs lodge when you arrive, making the start of your trip much easier. But what’s included, and is it worth it?

Center Parcs Starter Pack

The Center Parcs starter pack is ideal for weekend breaks at Center Parcs. It comes with the essentials you’ll need for two nights.

However, for what it is, it is the Center Parcs starter pack is expensive. All of the products are brand names, so you’re paying a premium on top of convenience.

As such, if you’re travelling to Center Parcs on a budget, I would not recommend the Center Parcs Starter Park. Instead, I’d recommend buying groceries from a supermarket on your way to the village.

Center Parcs Family Grocery Pack

The Center Parcs family grocery pack is ideal for midweek or week-long breaks at Center Parcs. However, you will likely need to buy more food when travelling to Center Parcs as a family.

Much like the Center Parcs starter pack, this grocery pack is a lot of money for what it is. You’re paying for premium brand names and convenience. If you want to save money, I recommend buying food from a supermarket on your way to Center Parcs.
