“I used otbeach to book 2 weeks in a 4 star hotel in...”

Written on: 05/07/2007 by sossi (3 reviews written)

I used otbeach to book 2 weeks in a 4 star hotel in Algarve in June for a family of 3 and have no complaints. The same fortnight in the same hotel with a high street travel agent was almost 3 times more expensive (I paid £800, high street £2200).
OK, we had to book our own transfers but I'm glad that I didn't pay for the services of a travel rep who we wouldn't see anyway.
Overall, I have no complaints about otbeach and would use them again… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/07/2007 by janetlloyd (1 review written)

The holiday was exactly what we booked and paid for. There were no hidden extras and the price did not change once we booked. The only thing I would suggest is DO ring the company to make your booking, and DO ask them for transfers, and if required, book at the same time… Read Full Review

“We used On The Beach to book our first summer holiday...”

Written on: 29/06/2007 by nicolab (1 review written)

We used On The Beach to book our first summer holiday with our new edition to the family, our 7 month old baby. At the booking stage I would say the service was OK. We booked our trip 5 months in advance in order to make sure we could meet our requirements. When we paid our balance in full we didn't receive any acknowledgement of payment, I had to email to get any sort of receipt. When our tickets were due 7-10 days prior they never arrived. It got to the Friday before we were travelling on the… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/06/2007 by Kel7 (1 review written)

Well let me start by saying that this web site is extremely good for money. A lot of complaints are on the review websites which nearly all contain to money issues. Please before you book all you need to do is read the terms and conditions. The company is a go between - between you and the Tour Operator. The only problem is they provide at 48 hour Admin Service as there sales team has a telephone number but the admin conduct there service through e-mail. About the money side of things the 48… Read Full Review

Booked with otbeach, at a good price, then 48 hours later I got a call to tell me the price of the flights has gone up £170, i was hooked by this point as you have had to book time off work, arrange kennels etc, etc.
The price was never what was quoted on the internet, this is there to get you hooked, then they give you the real price..it is a con,, book with a reputable company for peace of mind and assurance..PLEASE DO NOT LET THESE PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH THIS CON… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/04/2007 by jane32 (1 review written)

If your thinking of booking you holiday with this company then don't! Save your self of lot of trouble in the future and book with a reputable company, at least you would be able to talk to someone not have the phone put down on you! Should you have a problem.
I have ended up cutting my losses and loosing £300 deposit, going to a high street travel agent and still saved £50! So not as cheap as they make out… Read Full Review

“I booked a 9 day package in Crete for 3-people, which...”

Written on: 27/04/2007 by whgc (1 review written)

I booked a 9 day package in Crete for 3-people, which included flights and B+B apartment accommodation. Website and payment were easy. It seemed very good value at just £160 per person. The day after paying online, I got a call from them asking me to pay an extra £10 per person in flight duty, since the duty had just been raised by the chancellor, and they had not yet got around to amending their website. I paid it, because I had seen a lot on the TV about the new tax.

However, a day later… Read Full Review

I would not use this company again. What started out like a great find for me has turned into a nightmare. Despite their promise to get back to me on Monday "within 48 hours" I have still not heard from them. Do yourself a favour and pay an extra few hundred quid and go elsewhere… Read Full Review

I have booked a holiday, just heard about the hidden hideous transfer fees to the resort. Has anyone else had this problem?
<br/>When I spoke to them they were down right rude.

Written on: 04/04/2007 by gle727 (3 reviews written)

I booked a package tour to Turkey for two families in August this year (2007) in what was a very nice hotel. There was minimal information about the hotel available, other than a link to the hotel's own website, and it did look very nice. After getting abuse through email from OTBeach for not having done my research on the hotel I'd booked, they reluctantly agreed to try and find more information about the hotel and the All Inclusive package we had booked. After a long and bitter wrangle… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2007 by jheron (1 review written)

Generally overall I think the companys ok. After ringing the company I booked over the telephone. The telephone price was slightly higher but I felt more reassured after speaking to them. Still good value for money around £60 more booking on the telephone. Always pay with your credit card becase you are covered. They are ABTA bonded so there shouldn't really be any problem… Read Full Review
