Important Information for passengers travelling to the USA or via the USA On January 12th 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 orwater vessel bound to the USA. A s of S eptem ber 8th, 2010 there is a $14 fee when applying for your ESTA number. Payment can be made through the following website: https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov A n approved travel a uthoriz a tion via E S TA is: • Required for all VWP travelers prior to boarding a carrier to travel by air or sea to the U.S. • 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. P lea se note pa ssengers who fa il to pre-reg ister with E S TA m ay be denied boa rding ; experience delayed processing or be denied a dm ission a t a U.S . port of entry.

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 and pay the $14 fee for ESTA prior to travel. We

6

strongly recommend that you apply for your ESTA number now even if you haven’t decided your travel date. As it is valid for 2 years 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 checkin 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!

Or how about combining a US city break with a tropical beach break in the Caribbean? The itineraries outlined below are just a small sample of the combinations available.

h h h h h h h h Weddings, Honeymoons & Renewal vows h h h h h h h h h 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 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. 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.

Honeymoons 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.

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, nonstop 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.

h

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. Make your lifetime commitment above the sweeping streets of San Francisco in one of its most iconic buildings.

• Required for all VWP travelers prior to boarding a carrier to travel by air or sea to the U.S. under the VWP since January 12, 2009; • Valid, unless revoked, for up to two years or until the traveler’s passport expires, whichever comes first;

Booking Conditions Please refer to the Sunway Booking Form for details. Before completing the Booking Form, please read conditions carefully, if you have any queries please contact your agent.

• 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; and

Insurance Sunway strongly advise you to carry the appropriate travel insurance. Details available on request.

Health At the time of going to print, no compulsory health requirements are currently in force if travelling to USA and Canada.

Passports and Visa It is your sole responsibility to ensure that all passengers including children and infants are in possession of a valid Passports and Visa’s. The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) enables Irish citizens to travel to the U.S. for tourism or business for 90 days or less without obtaining a U.S. visa. If you do not hold an Irish passport, you must check with the applicable embassies of the countries you will be visiting during your holidays. Passports must be valid for at least 6 months after your expected return date to Ireland. Irish Passport holders do not need a visa if entering Canada for tourism purposes. All that is required is a valid passport. A stay of up to six months is permitted but you cannot work during this time. Machine Readable Passports (MRP): From 26th October 2004 passengers entering and transiting the United States under the VWP are required to hold a machine-readable passport (MRP). If any person who is a citizen of a VWP (i.e. Irish citizens/holders of Irish passports) does not have a MRP, then they will need to obtain a U.S. non-immigrant visa prior to departure. Children: Over 16 years of age: must hold a valid MRP. Under 16 years of age: Children who have previously been added to a parent’s passport will also be required to have an MRP in their own name. Please note that Passports take between at least 4-6 weeks to secure, so applications for passports, including applications to exchange a non-MRP for a MRP should be made in advance. It is your responsibility to ensure that exactly the same name (including initials) appears on your ticket as in your passport. If there is any difference, you may be refused entry onto your flight. We regret we cannot accept any liability if you are refused entry onto any flight or into any country or otherwise suffer any difficulties or incur any costs as a result of not having an acceptable passport or any required visa(s). Passengers, who have previously been refused a US visa, should contact the US embassy. Those intending to re-enter during their vacation i.e. on a coach tour into Canada or cruising the Caribbean or Mexico should ensure on doing Immigration that Multiple Entry is stamped on their passport.

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

160

• 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 from January 12, 2009 onwards 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.

Flights and Flight times When you receive your travel documents, please check the flight numbers and timings on your tickets. Any flight route or timings shown in our brochure are for guidance only and may have changed. Check-in for international flights is 3 hours prior to departure. Some direct flights have an en-routed stopover for technical or operational reasons. Customs and immigration can usually be cleared at your first point of entry to the United States. Passengers travelling from Dublin or Shannon can normally clear US Immigration before your departure from Ireland. There are occasions, completely beyond our control, when a flight is delayed and Sunway Holidays do not have any liability for delays that may arise. Such changes will not be regarded as a significant change and you will not be entitled to cancel you holiday without paying the appropriate cancellation charge. Reconfirmation of Flight Times: Customers must reconfirm their return flight at least 24 hours prior to departure. Contact details included in travel documents.

Internal flights within the US & Canada Please note, if you are travelling on an internal flight within the US & Canadafor example from San Francisco to Los Angeles, the airline may charge domestic baggage fees. This varies per airline. Your travel documents, issued nearer your departure date, will list your baggage allowance for each flight. Please ask your sales agent for more details. Please note on the international portion of the flight (for example Dublin to New York), you will not be charged baggage fees unless you have exceeded your baggage allowance.

Fitness to Fly Conditions such as Deep Vein Thrombosis may be associated with any form of long distance travel whether by air, car, coach or train. In particular, Longhaul air flights (flight lasting longer than 5 hours) where passengers remain immobile in the seated position for long periods of time may be associated with an increased risk. Some people are deemed to be at greater risk and these categories are listed in the latest government advice, and they are advised to seek medical advise from their GP before travelling. People with other conditions may need special assistance from the airline. If you have any concerns about your fitness, then contact your doctor for advice.

Please note some airlines charge $50 for a second checked bag. This fee is payable directly to the airline. Please reconfirm with your consultant. Baggage Delays; In the case of baggage delay the air carrier is liable for damage unless it took all reasonable measures to avoid the damage or it was impossible to take such measures. 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.

Not included in the price • Holiday insurance. • Overseas airport departure taxes payable locally (unless otherwise advised) • Irish or other government taxes. • Fuel supplements. • Room service, telephone charges, porterage and all items of a personal nature not listed in the brochure. • Flight and hotel supplements for meals and/or upgraded accommodation. • Hotel facilities, e.g. sport and leisure equipment.

Price Variation All prices, which are given in Euros, are based on tariffs and exchange rates current and appropriate at the time of publication. If any of these vary the holiday may increase/decrease accordingly. Whilst every effort is made to avoid mistakes in prices arising, occasionally, due to the complexity of pricing and fares and the high volume of transactions carried out by Sunway, bona fide and genuine mistakes occur. 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.

Description of Accommodation & Resorts We have done our utmost to be accurate in our accommodation and resort descriptions but due to maintenance, refurbishment, low season, weather, public holidays and religious festivals, facilities and entertainment may be temporarily withdrawn without notice. Information on public holidays and religious festivals are available from the Embassies

Hotels, Lodges & Rooms Accommodation is based on standard twin/double bedded room unless otherwise stated. Higher category rooms can be secured at many of the hotels and the applicable supplement will be advised 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. We have, where possible, in this brochure, detailed such fees in the hotel descriptions applicable. Parking: Most properties offer free parking, however some establishments do charge a daily/weekly fee. Where possible, we endeavour to advise of these charges.

Escorted Tours All touring holidays are fully escorted from the point of arrival in America or Canada and to the point of departure, unless specified otherwise on the tour pages. Should you choose to extend your holiday no representatives will be available. However, an emergency contact number within North America will be provided. Details of how to contact our agents will be included in your travel pack sent with tickets. Please note hotels maybe substituted for a similar or higher category of hotel.

Fly Drive Itineraries Please note hotels maybe substituted for a similar or higher category.

Currency and Credit Card We believe it is essential to obtain a credit card prior to your departure. In America credit cards are a way of like. 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.

Drinking Laws Regulations in America and Canada vary but normally it is 21 or over. It is often necessary to provide ID before being served alcohol.

Car Hire & Driving Please note that most hire companies require a deposit at the commencement of any hire to cover the refilling of your petrol tank at the end of the hire. Seat belts are compulsory. Driving under the influence of alcohol is a serious offence and traffic laws are strictly enforced. In USA and Canada it is compulsory for drivers to carry a Valid Full driving licence with them at all times. Driving is on the right hand side of the road.

Currency We suggest you take your spending money in dollar Traveller’s Cheques or use a credit card.

Complaints Any Complaints you might have should be brought to the immediate attention of our local agent, and if not handled to your satisfaction should then be submitted in writing to Sunway’s office in Dublin within 28 days of your return. Please refer to sections 13, 14, and 15 of the Booking Form for further details.

A final word Whilst every endeavour is made to ensure that your travel plans run smoothly there can be times, thankfully very infrequent, when arrangements can go askew due to local circumstances of which we are unaware and have no control over. Every effort will be made by the company and its local agents to minimise any inconvenience.
