Each entry ticket for Floriade Expo 2022 is valid for 1 day on the date shown and includes a single trip on the cable car.
The visitor is not entitled to receive a refund of the entrance price or any other compensation, because a statutory exception applies to the right of withdrawal in this regard.
The visitor is not entitled to receive a refund of the entrance price or any other compensation in the event of loss or theft of the entrance ticket.
If a visitor does not use the entrance ticket or cable car ticket, this is for account and risk of the visitor; this is also the case if the entrance ticket is only valid for a specific time and/or date. Once an entrance ticket has been issued, it cannot be exchanged. Neither can the entrance price be refunded. The entrance price may nevertheless be refunded if circumstances beyond the control of the visitor make their visit impossible, but this is at the discretion of Floriade.
The visitor is only entitled to enter the Floriade Park upon display of a validly issued entrance ticket or Floriade Pass at the designated gateways.

Officers of Floriade are authorized to close and keep closed, any part of the Floriade Park, according to their own judgement, without this creating an entitlement to a refund (of part of the price) of the entrance ticket.
The opening and closing times are dependent upon the activities at the Floriade Park and will be displayed at the entrances and on the website www.floriade.com

If a visual check shows that the visitor is not clearly recognizable from the photograph, Floriade is entitled to ask the visitor to have a new photograph taken.

If a person buys a Floriade Pass online on behalf of another person, this can only happen if the purchaser has been authorized to do so by the other person or if the purchaser is the legal representative of the other person. By obtaining the Floriade Pass for another person, the purchaser declares that they are entitled to do so.
If a person is a resident of Flevoland, they will be eligible for a Floriade Pass at a reduced rate: the Floriade Pass for residents of Flevoland. When collecting the Floriade Pass for residents of Flevoland the Floriade passholder must provide proof of their address (bank statement, utility bill, or similar).
