Written on: 20/02/2010

On the Beach are the worst agents i have ever encountered!
The deals seem great at the time but don't be fooled.
Last year we booked to go to egypt with them but were flying with globespan who went bust,we were under the impression we would get a full refund but the hotel was booked seperatly and we basically lost £300. I would advise all travellers to book with a firm that is atol protected. I've now booked a holiday with thomas cook and you know they may not always be that great but at least… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/02/2010

We are currently attempting to cancel a holiday we didn't even know we had booked as it wasn't clear on their website what was going on. We entered our card details to move onto the next screen which we believed would tell us how much our baggage was going to be- it did, but this was charged for seperately once the fee for the holiday was charged to our account. Had we known how much the charges were going to be (having spent lots of time trying to find out) we never would have accepted their… Read Full Review

“My wife and myself along with our children went on a...”

Written on: 19/02/2010 by Holiday Rep (11 reviews written)

My wife and myself along with our children went on a package holiday with 'On The Beach Holidays' to the 'Caria Holiday Resort Hotel' in Sarigerme Turkey - August 2008. 7 persons who paid £600 each for a so called 4 star hotel.
To call this hotel a four star is quite frankly an insult to any other hotel that uses the star motif as a measure of hotel quality/standards.
The only thing that was star rated in my opinion was the awful standard of cleanliness and that definately does get a five star… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2010

The booking was easy, although we did request an answer to a question and none was forthcoming. In the first instance I telephoned and was told to email customer service which we did, but no reply. I would also like to know how they can say a hotel is 4 star when it is clearly at best a poor 2 star. I am talking about the Windsor Hotel, Sliema, Malta… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/02/2010

I booked a holiday to Tenerife in Oct 09. The holiday went without any problems and it was much cheaper than advertised in Thomson, which at the end of the day was the reason we were booking through an internet sight and not through a travel agents. Our flight was with BMI and which was advised to us in our printable ticket nearer the time.
Our flight times were changed however they contacted us in advance to let us know. We did have to change our transfer time that was booked through OT… Read Full Review

Just tried to book a holiday with otb, got a really good deal which is why i rate value for money as a 5, but that is only if they give u the holiday after they got your money.I got all through the booking they took my card details and then told me there was a problem. The hotel looked to good for the price so i couldnt go ahead with the booking. Its taken me 2 weeks to get my money back. DONT BOOK WITH THEM.They sould have told me there was a problem before taking my money… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/02/2010

I feel annoyed, disappointed and foolish to have been taken in by yet another, what appears to be efficient and good value web site.
Please do not build up your hopes that you have booked a holiday when you give all your requests along with your credit card details.
I was 'sucked' into a situation where they were offering much more expensive flights than the ones I thought I had booked.
What a waste of time.
I am very tempted to start using travel agents again!!!… Read Full Review

“BEWARE THESE BOGUS CON MERCHANTS. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE...”

Written on: 09/02/2010 by designerwrist (1 review written)

BEWARE THESE BOGUS CON MERCHANTS. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE + COSTLY 0871 NUMBERS IF YOU NEED TO CONTACT THEM. HIDDEN EXTRAS ON EVERY PAGE. THEY FOOL YOU INTO THINKING YOU HAVE THE TOTAL COST GET YOU TO ENTER YOUR CARD DETAILS. Then HIT you with more charges but no going back from that screen. They are not even the tour operators just an agent for companies like UTravel and UBook. Please think long and hard before trusting them they seriously are crooks.

Absolutely awful,I booked flights through them ,when I received the details I was instructed to log onto Ryanairs site and confirm my booking and download my E ticket this prooved rather difficult as I was in fact flying with Thompson.Felt a right plonker when I complained to Ryanair that their
system wascrap and was told that I was not booked to fly with them.After many attempts and cosiderable expense I managed to sort it with Othe beach.It was like talking to congenital idiots.

“Absolutely awful - would never use this company again,...”

Written on: 03/02/2010

Absolutely awful - would never use this company again, I wish I had seen these reviews before booking as I too was stung with an additional baggage charge of £23 pp per flight after having confirmed the booking - can easily get the flights much cheaper elsewhere, have tried to complain but was met with a very rude operator who told me it was my fault. Have emailed customer services with no reply, have not even had my booking confirmed yet so I am unable to work out whether I even have a flight… Read Full Review

“Thought I'd found a right bargain only it wasn't after...”

Written on: 31/01/2010

Thought I'd found a right bargain only it wasn't after they'd sneakily added on baggage costs after they took my credit card details! They charge £15 per person per flight so I ended up forking out an extra £60. They didn't even give me the option of only paying baggage for one person, it was either £60 or no baggage. Thomas Cook would have been cheaper! Can't believe I've been done. Been trying to call them to complain and surprise surprise no one answers the phone and they charge 10p a… Read Full Review

Dont book with these!!! We did not see the extra baggage cost, so a so called cheap holiday turned out to be £130 extra to the price shown and this wasnt visable until they had our money. We could have had booked with Thompson for the same money!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/01/2010

Do not book with this company! They are not very honest and will try to sneak another product instead the one you paid for. We appealed, they appologized and change the booking, then charged us twice for it! On positive side: communication is fairly good, they are quite quick to amend their mistakes, but YOU must be quick to spot it… Read Full Review

Horrendous! Booked a holiday - seemed a good deal but they cancelled it the next day claiming it wasn't available any more...

1. Why sell holidays that are unavailable?

2. How can you have an operator call me to tell me it's unavailable without any explanation?

An absolute farce and a massive disappointment. Just don't do it… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/01/2010

Do not book with this company! They charge over the odds for cheap flights! just booked a holiday to notice afterwards that buying easyjet flight direct whould have been much cheaper! They charge massive penalties for using a credit or even visa debit card and tell you after they charged your card what the total is. we contacted them 30 seconds after getting the booking summery as we wanted to cancel! Just to be informed that the complaints department would get in touch 3 days later. They… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/01/2010

I have booked with OTB on 3 seperate occasions now and have found them very good in most respects. I would recomend them to anyone. I find their website very easy and prices at least £200 cheaper than booking with anywhere else. The only time I have had a problem is trying to book for 3 adults and 1 child in 2 rooms that seems to confuse their computer as they insist on putting everyone in 1 room!! Easily solved though just ring them and they'll book it over the phone for you. Very helpful… Read Full Review

On The Beach Holidays - Triple Price Match Guarantee (January 2010)

I am a total sceptic when it comes to deals like this, however, I went through the terms and conditions with a fine toothcomb (would STRONGLY advise that you do this first!) to ensure I would satisfy every inch of the eligibility criteria.

After a refusal at first, I persevered and emailed again (correspondence via email only unfortunately). They admitted there had been some technical issues with viewing my attached 'screen… Read Full Review
