As an online travel agent, we let you build your own holiday by giving you access to a wide range of cheap flights, hotels and transfer suppliers, saving you money. And it’s great to know that when you book a flight-inclusive package holiday through On the Beach, every part is financially protected by the ATOL scheme. On the Beach is also a member of ABTA which means you have the benefit of ABTA’s assistance and Code of Conduct.

What is ATOL protection?

ATOL protection means that customers have financial security and that if we, or one of our travel suppliers, has a problem then customers won’t lose money paid for a package holiday, and are not stranded in a foreign country.

When am I covered?

All of our flight-inclusive package holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. But ATOL protection does not apply to all holidays and travel services listed on this website. This website will provide you with information on the protection that applies in the case of each holiday and travel service offered before you make your booking.

What if the government advises me not to travel?

Booking a package holiday means that you are covered by the Package Travel Regulations. If after you have booked a package holiday the government advises against travel to your chosen destination, then you are protected. In these circumstances we will try to find you alternative travel arrangements but if that is not possible, or you do not want to accept the alternative arrangements, then you will be offered a full refund.
