Relax you're ATOL Protected

We're proud to say that back in 2011 we were the first major online travel agent to create an ATOL approved trust, and in 2016 we'll financially protect over 1 million customers' holidays.

That means, when booked together, your flight, hotel and transfer are all financially protected.

Your money is protected - we cannot access it until your holiday is complete!

On the Beach pays customers’ cash into a UK trust account (flights are paid for upfront), so cannot access customer’s cash until the holiday is complete. Many UK travel businesses with ATOL protection DO NOT ACT IN THIS WAY – we were the first ever UK OTA to put this trust account system in place and we have been paying all our hotels and transfers in this way since 2011. Should anything happen to the business, you can be 100% sure you can access your money to pay for your holiday.

Spread the cost with low deposits and flexible payments

With a low deposit from as little as £50 per person, book today and pay the rest of your holiday in instalments and your final payment will be due just two weeks before you fly.

Build your perfect holiday

We let you build your perfect getaway by letting you search thousands of cheap flights, hotels and transfer suppliers in one place, saving you money.

24/7 in-resort support

Sit back and relax in the knowledge that our in-resort support line is available 24/7.
