Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Updated 27 July 2020

While the government travel advice remains as avoid non-essential travel and even though some destinations are included in the Green List of destinations, we are working with all our customers to help them with their holiday plans, so please be patient we will be in contact with you.

The safety and wellbeing of our customers will always remain our top priority.


The Green list – things to know

  • Destinations will be updated by the Government every 2 weeks.
  • Countries can come off the green list if they do not meet the criteria set out by government
  • 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

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

Government advice 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 August onwards

A lot of flights are operating albeit on a reduced frequency for August and beyond. If you are due to travel in August 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 July 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 info@sunway.ie 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?

  • You can book your holiday in complete confidence with Sunway
  • We are an Irish Family owned and operated holiday company, taking Irish holidaymakers on holiday for more than 53 years
  • Sunway Travel is licensed and bonded with the commission for aviation (TA 0731 and TO 101) Do not take chances with unlicensed travel companies

I hope the above information has helped answer some of the queries you may have. Finally, I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the kind words of support you’ve shared with me over the past few weeks. These are really tough times for Sunway and the Travel Industry of Ireland, but we look forward to planes flying soon so we can take you on holidays.

I remain convinced that, when we do return to the skies, we will be both stronger and better than before.

Let’s all look forward to travelling again soon!

Heritage Britania Hotel

1/6

Heritage Britania Hotel

The only surviving original Art Deco hotel in Lisbon, with a touch of modern whimsical nuances, this small hotel is unique. Dating from 1944 and designed by the famous Portuguese modernist architect Cassiano Branco, it retains its original soul. Meticulously recuperated, it was combined with nowadays technologies in order to offer all actual comfort. The Hotel Britania is perfectly located in a quiet street just off the exclusive Avenida da Liberdade. This hotel is a work of art with the atmosphere of a private club. The 32 rooms and one suite are large and comfortably furnished with Art Deco lights and furniture. Some rooms have terraces and all are in muted colours of dull gold and creams. Floors are covered in Portugal’s most famous export, cork, which was much used at that time. Period bathrooms, with bath tubs, are marble clad and have Molton Brown amenities. Tradition & modernity living side by side! Hotel Britania offers 24-hour room service as well as a convenient breakfast buffet, which is served until 12:00. The recovery of the whole building is exemplary as is the case of the paintings in the bar alluding to the Portuguese overseas empire. There is a cosy library with a wide range of books on Portugal as well as a selection of board games and a bar with an equally wide range of Portuguese wines and ports to sample.
