Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Updated 31 August 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 at any time
  • 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
  • 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?

Located on the Pacific coast between the sea and mountains, the stunningly scenic city of Vancouver is the largest in the province of British Columbia. A cosmopolitan city offering, cultural attractions, art galleries, museums, theatres, excellent shopping, fine restaurants and a host of outdoor activities Vancouver makes for a great city break and with the great outdoors on its doorstep it is easy to see why Vancouver is one of the world's most favourite cities.

Downtown is situated next to the waterfront where summers are ideal for a light stroll or down Robson Street where you are spoilt for choice with a variety of stores, shops and restaurants. The West End is full of cafes and coffee shops and the young and trendy Yaletown area boasts some great designer boutiques and chic restaurants with the opportunity to eat al fresco come summertime. Microbreweries are thriving in Vancouver with many of the breweries open the public for tours and the cities nightlife is a steadily increasing mixture of stylish bars, pubs, clubs and live music venues. With the city being well served by public transport including buses, the Skytrain, ferries, rail and taxis, getting around couldn’t be easier.

For fans of the great outdoors you are just spoilt for choice with plenty of outdoor pursuits on offer nearby or just a short distance away, at Whistler for example, where the 2010 winter Olympics where held. Try your hand at rafting, mountain biking, hiking, skiing and snowboarding (season permitting) to roller blading and cycling or take the Cliffwalk at Capilano Bridge Suspension Park, not for those who have a fear of heights! Alternatively why not explore the spectacular coastline by taking one of the many excursions by floatplane, or take a ferry journey to enjoy the whale watching that is synonymous to the area. The waters surrounding the Gulf Islands and San Juan Islands are one of the world’s best spots for catching a glimpse of killer whale pods. After your trip relax and sip some of the local wines and enjoy the coastal views.

Top Tips:
Take a cruise from Vancouver to visit the ice sheets and bergs off Alaska. A popular experience now is to spend a few nights in Vancouver pre or post Cruise from May – September.

Vancouver is also a great place to start or finish a trip through the incredible Rockies, Sunway can offer luxury train trips or fly drive holidays
