To secure your reservation you must pay the minimum deposit required. Unless this is done the service package offered may become unavailable or else the total price may rise. It is always recommended to secure the reservation of any service at the earliest as once this is done all the services that make up your purchase will be in turn blocked off under your name. All rates quoted on SunDreams Travel are inclusive of taxes and are applicable for online bookings, confirmed in real-time, with payment confirmation effected by credit card online. If booking or altering any of the services featured/booked online with one of our reservations staff (offline) a service fee of 5% is applicable on the total amount due. For groups, events and package deals all online rates are featured as “starting from” and will be subject to a confirmed quotation to be sent to you by our reservation staff. We do our best to honour these rates in our quotes too and reccomend that you plan ahead to get these packages confirmed at the featured rates. All pending quotes and unsettled amounts in any currency other than Euro are based on the stability of the said currency. In the rare case that there are huge fluctuations in the said currencies’ value the final quote or unsettled amount due may fluctuate accordingly. Credit card details will be retained as a guarantee. Any unpaid extras ordered and unpaid items left on account following your visit to our islands willbe charged to your credit card.
If the same holiday is found at a lower price somewhere else on the internet within 24 hrs from booking your holiday with Sun Dreams, kindly email us promptly and we will refund the difference to you. In your email you must include your booking reference number and putting the words ‘Price Match’ in the subject line, enclosing evidence of the lower price for example a screen shot and the full details of the lower rate along with the link or the contact where the offer was found. The lower rate must be available for booking with identical specifications of the original request (ex: same hotel, same date and same room type, same basis, same tax and service inclusions). The price match guarantee only applies to our internet rates and online bookings processed through our online reservation system. To be eligible, you must have had already prepaid your reservation online. Sun Dreams reserve the right to refuse any claim where we are unable to verify the claim to our satisfaction, in accordance with the above points. In the case of a confirmed booking becoming unavailable, we will endeavor to offer an alternative hotel at an equivalent standard and price, as close to your original hotel as possible.

It is always safe to be at the airport 2 hours prior to flight departure time. It is recommended to reconfirm your flight timings with the airport or the airline before your departure. This is usually best done 2 days before your travel date. Baggage allowance on most airlines we use is standard for short haul flights within Europe to Malta and that is 20kg in luggage and up to 6kg in hand luggage unless otherwise specified. Most flight operators do not allow name changes on confirmed flight seats. However Air Malta, Ryan Air & EasyJet are exceptions to this and allow name changes subject to a rebooking fee and supplementary charges (being the difference in fare between the fare available on the day when the change is effected less the fare paid on booking).
When renting a car in all cases there is full comprehensive insurance included however in case of accident there will be an amount to pay in excess. You may always waive this excess upon booking the car through our system however if you don’t you will always be given the opportunity to waive this excess while picking your car up. In fact most delivery drivers will try and upsell this to you as insurance so make sure you are aware of what you are signing for. All traffic fines incurred during the renting a car will be your responsibility and will be charged directly on the credit card number given when signing the contract in Malta. Fuel charge is never included and is usually to be paid on signing of contract however some companies give the option to return the car with the same amount of fuel. In all cases it is your responsibility to read the contract in detail prior to signing.
