Demand tickets 2020 / 2021

We indicated at the time that we would be able to forward your tickets.
However, it turned out that behind the scenes, per order, this would involve an awful lot of manual work.

At the end of April, I decided to refund everyone their money and to start with a clean slate this year.

We informed everyone about this in an e-mail at the beginning of May.
Now you may have overlooked this.


  • did you order with us or with ANWB.
  • the payment took place around May 7, 2022 via Mollie Payments
  • The account number you used to pay is known to us and the purchase amount has been refunded to this account number, you did not have to do anything

Sorry for the inconvenience!
Hoping to have informed you sufficiently.
