On the Beach

From humble beginnings in 2004 as the start-up business of our CEO Simon Cooper, to our 2015 listing on the London Stock Exchange; we’re proud to be one of the UK’s leading online retailers of beach holidays. We're a dynamic, agile, technology focused business at the cutting edge of digital and ecommerce.
We do not sell package holidays, we allow you to choose any flight or hotel singly or together to suit your requirements. We offer value for money flights and hotels to the world's most popular beach holiday destinations, providing consumers with a huge selection of travel products, from 50 million available flight seats and more than 30,000 hotels around the world, insurance and in-resort transfer partners. Customers can choose and build their own holiday online or by calling the UK call centre 0871 474 3000. On the Beach operates with the financial protection of ABTA K0813.
We now send nearly one million happy customers away on their perfect beach holiday each year, but our ambitions are much bigger than that and we need the right people to help us. We're looking for ambitious, talented people to join our team.
