Couriers Corné and Heidi
We are Corné and Heidi and this is our seventh season of working in the tourist industry. We worked for three years for another organisation and this is the fourth season for us with Vacansoleil. During the season, we live in our camper on the campsite. The work really suits us so we call it a working holiday because no day is the same and working in the nice weather is never dull. Our time at the campsite (end of March until mid-October) is very pleasant. Every year we're always curious as to who is going to work with us. We were very lucky this year with our trainees Maaike and Naomi. We start the day with check-outs as people can depart any time after 8am. After that we have a reception hour. During the reception hour, we make sure that all the units of accommodation are ready for the guests. The guests can check-in from 3pm onwards. This is a lot of fun to do as the guests are all different nationalities - its always enjoyable. We have another reception hour at 5pm. Once all the guests have arrived, you are more or less finished for the day. However, you are always on stand-by for the guests. For example, a gas cylinder can run out and there could be other matters that cannot wait until the next day. So, when you are a courier at one of the Vacansoleil campsites, you get to see everything!
