Can I just ask, if you have previously booked a sun holiday (we took our holiday in September '11) will we automatically get a priority code?
And if we do get a code and don't get the chance to use it, will we get further codes in the future or do you need to keep booking the Sun holidays to stay on their list for priority codes?

Hi hun, you dont have to book for every holiday as get a code so long as have been in last 2 years. However, I have never got sent a code automatically since missed 1 4 years ago, but you can email (the link is in their faqs) and request one if you dont receive one (I have done one for this time already incase dont automatically get sent one, despite only going in oct) hth

Hi All,

I am new to this but thinking of trying to book one this year. Can I just ask - what does a priority code do? Does it give you priority over dates/parks before other people or something else?

Thank you in advance x

Priority code means you can book online so can get your booking in before others, and can confirm parks/dates before you book instead of a lucky dip like when you send the paper form off

Keeping my fingers crossed for a priority code in the post this week xx

I've never been on one of these before but am considering it for this year. How do you find out which parks you can go to? Can't find anything from the link... Also are there any parks that anyone can recommend that are quiet and scenic rather than loud and busy?

Were there codewords to input & book online last time? (I may be thinking of a different newspaper/promotion)

Just as a warning to everyone, I applied for a 'Sun Holiday' to Europe last year. I wrote down 5 possible dates, and 5 possible destinations and sent my form off on the first day possible (After the first 10 tokens printed)

I received a holiday back with neither any destinations or dates I listed (I didnt tick the 'send me any holiday' box btw!). My cheque for 120 was cashed, and I contacted the company on numerous occasions via numerous different methods and was never replied to, resulting in me losing 120 as I could not make the date they gave me.

I would suggest if you are thinking of applying for one of these holidays to be available for all dates possible and not be too fussy about your destination.
