Reports of fake On the Beach holiday representatives
It has been brought to our attention that a small number of individuals in select Eastern Mediterranean resorts have been falsely impersonating reputable online travel agencies, including On the Beach. These individuals often wear On the Beach branded t-shirts and claim to be in-resort holiday representatives working on our behalf.
On the Beach is an online travel agency, which means that we don’t have high street stores or any in-resort reps – which is one of the reasons we’re able to keep our costs so low. We are continuing to monitor the situation with our resort partners, and provide an in-resort support team during office hours and a 24/7 support service for emergencies
