    many times, just be careful about the amount of people in a room. eg if 6 of you are going they will put you in 2 rooms even if you are married couples. Other than that they were OK

    am i right in thinking the transfers arent included?

    They never have been when I have used them, why not try icelolly or R-travel, they usually go to the same places and offer as good if not better deals

    icelolly is by phone, and you phone up and they say they aint got them and try to sell you something else

    whats r travel

    Be careful with otb. They take your card details and once they have them they automatically add on extras such as transfers, luggage etc.

    Try other similar sites such as alpharooms, sunshine.co.uk etc. They normally all have the same accommodation and all prices are fully broken down so what you see is what you pay

    You might have had a bad experience but you make it sound like they do this EVERY time. Which they do not. You have to add this on through their extras page and they do not just do this automatically.

    I have used them 7+ times...and it has never happened to me.

    grrrr i give up



    The price they quote at the end is for all taxes, the hotel and flight. You need to add on transfers etc through the link on the last tab. It either says "transfers" or extras.

    When you click your flight it will show in a box on the right hand side what your baggage allowance is.

    However found a few for anyone interested. Can't get flights for much less than £600, however BA are running a few ]deals. Select London to Barbados 22/6-29/6 and you'll get a holiday for £499 per person including flights.

    nope, not bothered where, just cheap, found one for all all at onthebeach, but by the time they add everything on it loses its cheapness

    For a few years we booked the accommodation separate through holiday-rentals.co.uk/ and then cheap flights. We saved loads doing it like that. If u do look at that website and see something u like DONT OFFER ASKING PRICE!! Tell them your on a mega strict budget and ask if they are willing to accept x amount. We always done that and it was always accepted - as its the owner of the property ur dealing with

    I have recently been checking prices with onthebeach as they were giving the best deals daily for the holiday I wanted, I noticed that they offer a cashback should you find cheaper but then realised you have to book with onthebeach and then claim it back, many many stipulations.

    I then looked directly at Monarch, same flight, same hotel, transfers were add ons on both and found the holiday over £200 cheaper so booked the flight and hotel with Monarch, but not as a holiday, seperately, I'm going in 5 days and still onthebeach arent as low as it was with Monarch.

    used them once - there was about 20 pounds more on the direct debit than there should have been and we never go to the bottom if it.
    The transfers we booked with them and they mucked them up in that the transfer taking us home picked us up from another hotel about a mile down the road. Had to phone england from spain on the mobile and that was at my cost too.
    Wrote a letter of complaint and they asked for more detail and made some sarcastic remark regarding the transfers.
    All in all the rest of the bookings were fine but the muck ups left a sour taste so i doubt ill be using them again.
