You can customise everything about your stint in the sun, from choosing flights for the lowest price to selecting a hotel that’s as cheap as chips. Our site puts you in charge of every detail, including airport transfers. There’s even the option to share a transfer with other holidaymakers - the perfect way to get from A to B on a budget. From bargain breaks in the Balearics to cheap and cheerful trips to the Canaries, discover your perfect beach holiday for less with On the Beach.

Cheap holidays for families

Whether you work full time or stay at home with the kids, you and your family deserve a holiday together. Book early to get great rates on sunshine in the Easter, Christmas and summer breaks or, if your little ones haven’t started school yet, keep an eye out for savings on last-minute deals. We have plenty of pocket-money-friendly hotels with kids clubs, splash parks and play areas, so finding cheap holidays for families doesn’t mean compromising on the fun.

Cheap holidays for couples

Holiday romances are the best – even when you’ve been together for years, being by the beach makes you feel like you’re starring in your very own fairy tale. And, with our competitive deals, treating your partner to some sunshine doesn’t have to cost the earth. Fancy a flop ‘n’ drop trip? Or is nightlife the main draw when you’re abroad? It doesn’t matter if your itinerary for two is packed with activities or simply just reads ‘beach day’ every day until you fly home, you can grab a beachy base for a song below.

When’s the best time to book cheap holidays?

If you’re flexible on dates, take advantage of last-minute deals or low-season savings. If you can only fly at certain times (such as during school holidays) then booking your beach break in advance might be your best bet.

Savvy sun seekers keep an eye out for sales and giveaways, too. Have a look at our sale page around Boxing Day, January and Black Friday each year for seasonal discounts. You can also join our mailing list and follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook where you can enter competitions and fill in surveys – you might just bag yourself a free holiday.

Cheap short-haul holidays

Short flight. Low cost. It often really is that simple. Short-haul destinations such as Spain, Portugal, Croatia, Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca can be great for getting some sunshine for a steal. Picking a place to stay with short transfer times from the airport and back again will help keep the price down too. Take a quick trip to one of the below hotels to maximise your budget and your travel time.

Cheap All Inclusive holidays

Going All Inclusive can be a lifesaver for travelling on a limited budget. Is there anything more relaxing than knowing that everything’s paid for before you even land? Whether you can’t get enough of the breakfast buffet or it’s the bar that raises your spirits, wining and dining doesn’t need to cost you any extra once you’ve paid for your beach break. We’ve picked out three hotels below that offer cheap holidays with food, drink and fun, all included.

Cheap holidays to Tenerife

Tenerife is always a popular choice for a beach holiday – year-round sunshine, regular flights and stunning landscape means bargain-hunting beach-lovers return year after year. Head to Costa Adeje for Blue Flag beaches and great golf courses, Playa de las Americas for vibrant nightlife or Puerto de la Cruz for family-friendly fun. There are some brilliant budget hotels in Tenerife; here’s our pick of the bunch.

Cheap holidays to Spain

Spain raises the standard for cheap holidays, offering lovely weather, varied attractions and – of course – beautiful beaches that are as affordable as they are fun. Head to one of the famous Spanish costas for a home-from-home beach break that won’t break the bank – Costa Brava and the Costa del Sol are especially famous for hosting high-quality holidays at low prices.
