The Green list – things to know

  • People returning from a Green List country, do not have to self-quarantine, however they are asked to restrict their movements
  • If you book a holiday to a green list destination and should it come off the green list while you are there or before you are due to travel – we will contact you and offer assistance
  • Please refer to the following link for an up to date list of countries included in the Green List

I am booked to travel to a destination included in the Green List, can I still go?

Government advice for countries included in the Green List is currently to avoid non essential travel, however you may still travel if wish to do so. We will be contacting all customers regardless of the destination they are travelling to and will discuss what options you have.

I am booked to travel to a destination that is not included in the Green List?

We will contact you and discuss your options as you would be travelling against government advice. Travel Insurance may not cover you, so it is essential that you check your travel insurance policy.

I am due to travel from September onwards

A lot of flights are operating albeit on a reduced frequency for September and beyond. If you are due to travel in September we will contact you and discuss all options with you. We will be contacting people in order of travel date, so bear with us we will get to you.
We are prioritising all rebooking’s based on travel date.

I am due to pay the balance of my holiday, but I’m concerned
We will do our very best to work with you in this regard. On some selected destinations we may be able to delay the balance due date. Please contact our sales team regarding your booking.

I want to change my holiday, what do I do?
Depending on when and where you are travelling to, we will assist you where we can but please bear in mind our focus is on September holidays at the moment.

You are welcome to contact our office during our normal office hours of 9.00am – 5.00pm Mon-Fri. You may also email and one of our team will get back to you.

I’m still worried, can I cancel my booking?
If your flight is still operating and you choose to cancel your holiday, then this would be subject to our cancellation policy as per our booking conditions.

I want to book a new holiday but I am concerned I will lose my money?

Lake Garda Holidays


Lake Garda Holidays

Lake Garda is located in the north-east of Italy and is the largest of Italy’s northern lakes. Widely regarded as one of Europe's most breath taking sights Lake Garda has all the ingredients for a perfect holiday; a fine climate, mouth-watering cuisine, stunning luscious scenery, ancient Roman ruins, quaint towns and pretty villages dotted along the shores. Lake Garda stretches between the Alps and the Dolomites, embracing a diverse scenery and sheltered in a natural sun trap.

Most of the lakeside towns are very popular as holiday resorts, all differing in character and well connected by ferry services. Sunway offer a wide selection of resorts including Peschiera, Sirmione, Gardone Riviera, Riva Del Garda, San Felice Cel Benaco and Toscalano Maderno. The lake is long and slender with the southern lakeshore low with rolling land whilst the northern lakeshore is dramatically different with its fjord like inlets and surrounding mountains and cliffs. There are various ways to get around the lake with the most appealing option probably being to take one of the many ferry services. You can pick up a timetable at any of the information / ticket kiosks at the various jetties. Buses, hydrofoils and car hire make up the other options.
