Is The Center Parcs Starter Pack Worth It? – We Think So!

Going back over a year ago Cora won some amazing vouchers for Center Parcs. It was a place we both wanted to go to but always chose a holiday abroad instead.

As soon as she won the vouchers we planned trips that never came to light and eventually, we got married and so we decided to use them for a little honeymoon away.

We decided to splash out and get some extras added to our booking to make life easier and make the trip a little more special. One of those things was a Center Parcs starter pack and best of all It is delivered straight to your lodge

This is a breakdown of each starter pack available and if it is worth it…

Starter Pack

The starter pack is what is stated, a starter pack. This is to get you going for your stay at Center Parcs. If you are looking for something a little more food then you may want to upgrade to the family grocery pack.

This also is mostly drinks based and doesn’t provide much food. This is great if you plan to eat out most of your stay and explore the places to eat within the complex.

Family Grocery Pack

The family grocery pack is actually the one we decided to add to our booking. As we were going for a special occasion and wanted it to be as easy as possible we were happy to pay for the Center Parcs starter pack to be there ready for us.

We chose this pack so it reduced the number of things we had to bring and pack for our Center Parcs trip.

Can You Get Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan and Vegetarian Starter Packs?

While the on-site ParcMarket caters for a variety of dietary requirements and most of the restaurants on-site are able to cater to all dietary needs there are no specific dietary starter packs.

If you have any dietary needs then it may be worth contacting Center Parcs directly to find out about the specific nutritional information from each of the starter packs and learn more about potential substitutions.

Can You Use Center Parcs Vouchers To Pay For The Center Parcs Starter Pack?

Quick answer yes you can. As we were using vouchers to book our whole accommodation and the starter pack we were booking by phone. Depending on the vouchers depends on how they can be used.

I believe there are some that are credit card size that has a code you can use online (correct me if I am wrong) or there are paper vouchers.

We were using the paper vouchers which had to be posted. As we booked over the phone the lovely lady gave us an address to send the vouchers off along with some small notes so the vouchers were verified as our payment and not anyone else.

Once the vouchers were received and processed we got all our details through for booking. As the Center Parcs starter pack is required to be booked in advance I would suggest ringing to book or add it to your booking and then post off to pay.
