On the Beach Reviews

On the Beach has a score of 1.5 out of 10 on the review website TrustPilot. Regular complaints from customers include changing the holiday a few days before departure, a lack of in-resort help, a long wait for confirmation of the holiday booking and a hotel not being as advertised. The company was also featured on BBC Watchdog back in 2012 where three disgruntled customers shared their experiences of booking a holiday with On the Beach.  However, some reviewers on TripAdvisor state that they have never had problems with On the Beach and found them to be good value for money, as long as you read the booking conditions first and double check prices using travel search engines.

About On the Beach

On the Beach was founded by entrepreneur Simon Cooper in 2004. The idea of a beach-orientated travel agent came from Cooper’s already successful business, On the Piste, which provided ski holidays for students. Thomson purchased On the Piste in 2008, leaving Cooper to concentrate on his newer venture.

Since then, the company has invested in several other companies such as Resort Taxis and On the Beach Beds, to secure better prices for customers.

In 2012, the company relocated its head office to Cheadle which is near Stockport. This was due to an increasing need for more space for recruitment.
