  1. Important Travel scope holidays.

    If you paid by credit card contact your card company now for a full refund.

    If you paid by debit card contact you bank immmediately

    There will be no holidays with travescope, so if you have booked a holiday consider it to be canceled.

  2. Please,please, please let us know if the “NOSTALGIA WEEKEND” at Sand Bay has been canceled or not, we have been promised an answer for weeks. We do not want to re-book this privately as we would loose our payments if we re-book and then you say it’s still on.

  3. Hello Danny

    Its important that you contact you card company for a refund, as its very unlikely your trip will take place.

    No other company will take over the debts of travelscope.

  6. We were booked to travel with Travelscope at the New Year. Obviously, our trip was cancelled and we were told that we would be hearing regarding repayment very soon.

    Can you please let me know when in fact we will receive details regarding obtaining a refund as soon s possible.

On the beach holidays review

Beware of, OTBEACH or ON THE BEACH Holidays plus otbeach.co.uk and finally OntheBeach.co.uk -

On the beach complaints and reviewsOn the Beach Otbeach warning.

Or check out - On the beach holidays, ot beach, I book holidays a con site?

otbeach on the beach holidays The bulk of the "On the beach complaints" concern - Persistent call backs after you think you have booked online to ask for more, huge extra cost surcharges. Extremely poor customer service .

According to ABTA they trade as: On the Beach, I book holidays, Otbeach so be careful.
