Entry Requirements to the USA Important Information for passengers travelling to the USA or via the USA Effective January 12, 2009, all travellers from Visa Waiver Programme(VWP) countries (which includes Ireland) will have to register with ESTA “Electronic System for Travel Authorisation” prior to boarding an air carrier or water vessel bound to the USA. Passengers can register at the following website:

https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov An approved travel authorization via ESTA is: • Required for all VWP travelers prior to boarding a carrier to travel by air or sea to the U.S. under the VWP which commenced on January 12, 2009. • Valid, unless revoked, for up to two years or until the traveler’s passport expires, whichever comes first. • Valid for multiple entries into the U.S. As future trips are planned, or if an applicant’s destination addresses or itineraries change after their authorization has been approved, they may easily update that information through the ESTA Web site. • Not a guarantee of admissibility to the United States at a port of entry. ESTA approval only authorises a traveller to board a carrier for travel to the U.S. under the VWP. (For additional information, please visit “For International Visitors” at www.CBP.gov/travel. Please note passengers who fail to pre-register with ESTA may be denied boarding; experience delayed processing or be denied admission at a U.S. port of entry. Please note, it is the passenger’s responsibility to pre-register with ESTA.

Travel tips for USA & Canada Here at Sunway we're perfectly placed to introduce you to the wonders of America and Canada.We can help plan your perfect holiday whether it is just a couple of nights in New York or several weeks travelling around.You'll find a wide selection of flights, hotels and car rental options right across America and Canada.We have put together a programme to suit all needs; so whether you are looking for a budget hotel in a prime location or a more luxurious property to pamper yourself, Sunway has it covered. Where to go There is so much to see and do in the USA that it is little wonder why people return year after year. There are several ways to see this vast continent. Why not hire a car and hit those ‘empty’ roads, finding hidden gems as you go. Fancy renting a convertible and letting the wind blow through your hair as you cruise down

the 1 highway in California? Or how about taking the historic 6A route in New England and discover some of the many antique shops and romantic inns en-route? Or maybe you enjoy the feeling of ‘a home away from home’? Then you should check out Sunway’s villa selection in Florida and apartments in New York. Please note, we have 1000’s of hotel rates throughout North America and unfortunately we can only feature a certain amount. If you have a particular hotel in mind, please ask our Sunway specialist for a quote.

Travel Tips It is now mandatory that all Irish citizens must pre-register for ESTA prior to travel. We strongly

6

recommend that you apply for your ESTA number now even if you haven’t decided your travel date. It is valid for 2 years and you can update your information (such as hotel address) as often as you need to on the ESTA website. A credit card is a must have in North America. Most hotels will require an imprint of your credit card at check-in and if you don’t have any incidentals then it won’t be charged. Check out the exchange rates that are available on your credit card. Often it can work out more cost effective to put cash on your card. This way you can benefit from a good exchange rate as well as the added safety of not carrying around too much cash!

Weddings, Honeymoons & Renewal vows Dreaming of a romantic wedding but want something different? Enjoy a state side location for your special and memory filled day.Two of the most popular wedding destinations, USA & Canada provide the perfect backdrop to make your day a memorable one. Imagine your wedding amongst the towering skyscrapers of New York or enjoy the lights of Las Vegas and get married in “A Special Memory Chapel” that offers packages like a classic wedding or you can choose to have Elvis escort you down the aisle. Or how about venturing further west to the islands of Hawaii and enjoy the backdrop of palm trees, waterfalls and beautiful sunsets.

How to arrange your wedding

Honeymoons

Your wedding day is very special to you and to us. Please allow us plenty of time to organise and prepare for such an important day. We have representatives in the cities and resorts who will assist you with all the legal requirements and provide a witness if necessary. Flowers, photography and videos can be arranged in advance at an additional charge to the wedding cost.

Dreaming of a romantic honeymoon but want something different? The United States and Canada offer some of the most romantic destinations for honeymoon couples looking for a magical ‘once in a lifetime’ holiday to celebrate the start of their married life together. A two-centre honeymoon can offer the best of both worlds, from exciting cities to scenic vineyards, from theme parks to exotic beaches.

Wedding dates are subject to availability and will be confirmed before your departure from Ireland. Copies of the necessary documentation must be forwarded a minimum of 10 weeks prior to your wedding to allow the relevant authorities to process the paperwork. All original documents must be taken with you to the wedding venue. Please contact us for details.

Las Vegas Las Vegas is the entertainment capital of the world but it is also the weddings capital of the USA.You couldn't find a more exciting, non-stop place to enjoy your wedding and honeymoon. For the classic Las Vegas chapel wedding, we offer “A Special Memory Chapel”. Alternatively, you have a wide range of hotel chapels to choose from.Try your luck in the casinos, enjoy the fabulous spas and relax at the huge pool complexes. A helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon is essential!

Hawaii It's everything couples could wish for, and more! Pearly white sand provides the perfect setting for your wedding, exchanging vows as the waves gently lap the shore. If you prefer a greener, more lush setting, say 'I do' in one of Maui's beautiful gardens, perfumed with the scent of countless tropical flowers. Waikiki is one of Hawaii's liveliest resorts and the perfect place for couples who want a honeymoon that's action-packed.

New York Take more than a bite in the big Apple and choose to get married there! Wedding settings include beautiful Central Park or how about exchanging your vows in an opulent penthouse overlooking Manhattan. When the wedding is over, you can concentrate on seeing the sights. It would be rude not to shop in the world's retail capital, after all! Book a Broadway show and take a carriage ride through Central Park, just like Carrie Bradshaw and 'Big' did.

Orlando Are you dreaming of a romantic lakeside wedding in Orlando, Florida? We can provide a beautiful lakeside wedding ceremony and reception complete with a white sandy beach and swaying palms.The natural, scenic beauty of Lake Bryan in Orlando Florida creates a wonderful backdrop for the ultimate wedding in paradise. Whether you're envisioning a formal black-tie luau with ice carvings or a casual barefoot barbeque complete with jet skis and boats; we can customize your wedding within any budget so you can relax and enjoy your special day.

San Francisco San Francisco has been voted America’s most romantic city for 6 years in a row! Take a stroll on the beach and watch the beautiful sunsets. Dine in some of its fabulous high-end restaurants! Where better to enjoy your special day than overlooking San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge than in one of our premier wedding locations.

Five mountains can be accessed with the New Hampshire lift pass. We feature accommodation at Loon mountain resort, which is fast becoming a popular choice amongst Irish visitors.Transfer time from Boston to Lincoln is approx 2 hours.

Breckenridge has as much to offer off the mountain as it does on any of its 146 trails. The Summit lift pass is valid for skiing at Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin. Half of the days may be used at Vail or Beaver Creek.These resorts are easily accessed by a scheduled bus service. Breckenridge resort is located at 3,000 metres with the highest lift reaching almost 4,000 metres. Some visitors may suffer from altitude sickness. At this altitude the resort is very snow sure with good skiing right to the end of the season.Transfer time from Denver International to Breckenridge is 2 hours.

Apartment stays are a great alternative to traditional hotels, especially if you are a group of friends on a shopping trip. Why not shop during the day and then compare your purchases in your cosy apartment that evening and order in a pizza? Apartments are also ideal for families, where you can rest assured that your loved ones are close by. Apartments are becoming increasingly popular so you are strongly advised to book in advance, especially for November and Christmas.

Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are just a ferry ride away and are well worth a visit. Sunway also offer private home rentals on Cape Cod. Ask our USA specialists for more details. Provincetown

North America Fly Drives Fly-Drives are self-guided driving tours for the independent traveller and are a fantastic way to discover and explore North America! The flexibility and freedom of a fly drive make it a really exciting adventure. Roads are excellent, wide and well signposted! Itineraries

Hotels

Sunway have selected some of the most popular preplanned fly/drive itineraries covering the USA and Canada. However if you have somewhere specific inmind and it isn’t listed, please give us a call so we can tailor make the perfect itinerary for you!

Please keep in mind that hotels located in major cities often charge overnight parking rates.This can range from $20 to $45 and must be paid locally. We advise you to double check the rates prior to parking.Very often less expensive parking alternatives are located close by. Please note if the brochure featured hotel is not available, a similar hotel will be confirmed.

Car choice A good rule of thumb for car hire is to book a car that is a similar size to the one you travel to the airport in. This gives you an indication for the luggage space required. It is also worth considering that American cars tend to have large interiors but fairly small luggage space. Booking a smaller car and then upgrading locally costs more than booking the right size in advance.

Easy Travelling! Satellite Navigation ensures an improved customer experience. Sunway can pre-book SAT NAV rental for you.This option is available in most locations.

Carbon Off-setting Sunway's USA Fly-Drives include the Terra Pass which means we include 100% carbon offsets for these tours. Carbon offsets fund projects that reduce CO2 emissions, effectively resulting in a carbon-neutral tour. This cost is not passed on to the customer.

is known as an idyllic holiday spot today, but its history is not so peaceful. In the 18th century, the island was at the centre of a bustling pirate culture, as swashbuckling pirates such as Blackbeard and Drake traded stolen wares in the port of Charlotte Amalie.

Phlipsburg,St.Maarten

When the Spanish closed their colonial fort on St. Maarten in 1648, a few Dutch and French soldiers hid on the island and decided to share it. Soon after, the Netherlands and France signed a formal agreement to split St. Maarten in half, as it is today.

Nassau, Bahamas

For a city now known for its warming sun and balmy breezes, Nassau has a tumultuous past. First settled by the English, the area was contested by England, France and Spain. For many years, Nassau was a home base for notorious pirates, and it was burned to the ground by the Spanish on three separate occasions.

Hubbard Glacier Highlights Inside Passage (Cruising) This is one of the most famously beautiful passages in all the world. It features virtually everything you came to Alaska hoping to see, including rain forests, glaciers, fjords and white-capped peaks. All of which create a setting that's perfect for viewing whales and sea lions.

Icy Strait Point, Alaska Fifty miles west of Juneau and at the mouth of Glacier Bay, lies historic Icy Strait Point. Travelers have the unique opportunity to experience Tlingit culture, superior wildlife viewing opportunities and years of Alaskan history.

Hubbard Glacier

Hubbard Glacier is the one glacier in the world that does not move at a glacial pace. Quite the opposite. In fact, in 1986, Hubbard Glacier - the largest tidewater glacier on the North American continent - moved an average of just under 5.5 feet per hour.

Once a hot spot and hideout for some of the most notorious pirates ever, Grand Cayman now hosts a much more refined clientele. Stingray City, named as one of the most rewarding experiences in the undersea world by National Geographic, allows swimmers to mingle with stingrays. Soft white-sand beaches and sensational duty-free shopping abound on this island of treasures.

Panama Canal

"The land of the divided, the world united." It's hard to imagine a more fitting motto for what in no uncertain terms irrevocably changed the Western Hemisphere forever. For fifty miles the canal transects the exotic emerald jungles of Panama and gives one an appreciation of what a Herculean task it was to build this waterway before the advent of computers and giant earth movers.

Los Angeles, California

Rodeo Drive, Spago, Mann's Theatre, Sunset Boulevard. There is so much to see and do in this entertainment capital, you'll have to be judicious with your time. Shop and sightsee as you keep your eyes open for Hollywood's heroes and villains in their off-screen persona. L.A. has it all and then some. See the homes of the stars, or visit the Griffith Observatory and do some celestial stargazing.

time of the change. However, this is not advisable and should be avoided if at all possible. In case of extreme emergency please refer to your Insurance Policy.

Seats on Aircraft Although with certain airlines we are pleased to make requests for seats in specific positions, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE WE ABLE TO GUARANTEE SUCH SEATS since airlines can change their configuration and also programmed aircraft at the last moment for operational reasons.

Baggage Free baggage allowance is normally 15kgs to 20 kgs for Economy and 30kgs for Business and First class.These allowances are subject to change. Please note some airlines charge $50 for a second checked bag.This fee is payable directly to the airline. Please reconfirm with your consultant.

If baggage is delayed, lost or damaged the passenger must write and complain to the air carrier as soon as possible. We strongly advise against placing valuables in checked in baggage.

What’s included in the Hotel Price. Our prices include standard run of house room only accommodation, unless otherwise stated. In rare cases hotels are fully inclusive (i.e. food and beverage included) this will be clearly listed in the hotel description. None of our packages include attraction tickets or resort facilities such as kiddies clubs, massage therapy or spa treatments. Although we list the facilities of a property in our hotel descriptions this does not necessarily mean that the use of these facilities is included in your price or free of charge, if you are in any doubt please inquire from our reservation staff at the time of booking.

Check-in, Checkout Time Please note that at most hotels and lodges check-in is not until 1500 hrs and you will be expected to vacate your room normally between 1000 and 1200 hrs – irrespective of the time that you intend to depart. If the hotel is not full then it is usually possible for early check-in or late checkout arrangements to be made locally, a charge is usually applicable. Resort Fees:You should be aware that certain properties levy clients directly in resort with fees for the use of various facilities at those properties.

Hotels will require an imprint of your credit card at check-in to cover for incidentals and for security reasons. Car hire companies will also require a credit card imprint of the nominated driver. In our opinion you should not leave home without your plastic friend. The currency in the U.S. is the U.S. dollar & in Canada is the Canadian dollar.

Where mistakes do arise the consumer shall be informed of the correct price as soon as possible and the consumer shall be entitled to either confirm the booking at the correct price or cancel the holiday immediately in writing and receive a full refund of the monies paid.
