With package holidays continuing to be a popular choice for Irish holiday makers this year, we decided to have a look at what really appeals to us about the process of booking through an agent or tour operator. Sunway holidays are one of the most renowned brands in Irish travel so we caught up with their team to find out the main benefits of a package holiday. Here’s what they had to say:

“We call ourselves The REAL Package Holiday Company and that’s because when you book with Sunway, you’re getting The Full Package with no extra costs or charges added to your final price. Sunway is an award winning Irish owned Tour Operator and we have over 52 years’ experience! This experience has helped us tweak our packages to meet your needs and wants. Here are the six aspects of our packages that our customers love most:

Low booking deposit – Many people can push off a holiday due to the initial booking costs and expenses. With a Sunway package holiday, it’s simple and affordable to secure your destination. With your deposit placed, you can pay off your trip in installments and if you need to cancel it isn’t the end of the world.

Return Flights – Ever land in your destination after your flight only to spend nearly as long reaching your accommodation? We charter the best flights to get you to paradise. Our flights fly you direct to the closest airport so there’s no added travel time and expense to get you to your chosen resort. Less time travelling, more time relaxing!

20kg Baggage – Sick of cramming everything you own into your carry on? All of our packages include 20kg checked baggage, so there’s no decisions on what outfits to pack, just bring them all! You’ve got 10kg hand baggage included also, if that 20kg just isn’t enough!

Transfers – Avoid the hassle of hailing a taxi or even daring to try make your own way. Sunway transfers take you straight from the airport to your desired hotel and back again. A Sunway Rep will guide you to the bus also, so there’s no chance you’ll get lost!

Quality Accommodation – Our 50 years’ experience has given us the ability to handpick the hotels we feel are suitable for the Irish market. We are constantly monitoring and updating our product so that you, the customer, experiences the best the world has to offer.

Sunway Rep – With every REAL package holiday comes the services of a Sunway Rep. They are basically your mammy abroad! They’ll be there for any questions/issues you may have while also helping you get the best out of what your destination has to offer. They are hard to miss too in their classic green Sunway uniform.”
