"The big idea behind sunshine was a simple one.If low-cost airlines can work, so can a low-cost travel agent."

We started sunshine.co.uk so we can sell amazing holidays as cheaply as possible. We cut the costs by only selling holidays online (and passing on the savings to you). And instead of expensive advertising, we look after our customers so well that word-of-mouth does the rest. That's why we have thousands of happy customers and can guarantee that any holiday you book with sunshine.co.uk will be the lowest possible price.

Meet the guys who created sunshine.co.uk

Chris Clarkson

The story starts back in 2003... Chris was one half of the team that built HolidayWatchdog.com - a site that lets people read impartial reviews of holidays and hotels across the world. We built the site in evenings and weekends, working from our spare bedrooms, often working until 3 or 4am and later, then getting up to go to our 9-5 jobs! The site got bigger and bigger... until we eventually sold it to TripAdvisor/Expedia.

Alan Gilmour

A graduate of the University of Glasgow, Alan has put his first class honours in Computer Science to good use. Joining the Holiday Watchdog team in 2005, he then took on the task of building sunshine.co.uk from scratch!

Launching sunshine.co.uk

We wanted to make something that helped consumers - just like HolidayWatchdog.com - but instead of reviewing holidays, we'd sell them. Cheaply. In fact, we'd sell them so cheaply that when most people visit sunshine.co.uk for the first time, they can't quite believe how cheap they are.

And that means we've done our job well. We want to sell you and your family the best possible holidays at the lowest possible prices. If we do that, we hope that you'll tell your friends (this helps push our prices even lower). And if we fall short, we want to hear from you - we'll do what we can to put it right.

So what next?

That's up to you. When we started sunshine.co.uk in 2007, we were just selling holidays themselves. Our customers wanted to book airport transfers and airport parking too, so we've added that in. As a result of a survey we did we've added car hire to the site and our most recent addition is airport lounges.

Mr K Moore
Great holidays tailored to suit all budgets at the best prices available with the Sunshine.co.uk fab easy to use website and can secure your future holiday for as little as £1. My preferred online booking agent 10/10.

Mrs W Robertson
Sunshine provided a very competitive cost for accommodation which other major competitors could not match. A potentially annoying problem raised by the hotel was swiftly and effectively resolved by the customer services advisor at Sunshine. I then extended my holiday and booked another hotel through Sunshine which was also the best offer available from a selection of competitors. Having recently used a 'big name' provider which left me massively out of pocket through no fault of my own, I was very pleased with the personal service provided by Sunshine.

Ms A Kostiviarova
Oh I love this website! Booked two trips recently. Both hotels I found were the cheapest option on market and both hotels were the ones I couldn't find anywhere else as on other websites were already sold out. Plus rooms I wanted, I got it on their website without paying extra (In one hotel Tryp in Palma I wanted room with balcony - other websites were charging extra for this). Rooms and packages were exactly the same as it stated on their website. Each hotel have their own policy so if I needed something related to room or package I just went to reception to sort. Didn't need to contact sunshine at all, which was great! They delivered what they promised for lowest price. I will definitely book with this company again and am happy to recommend it to everyone. And another great thing is they don't overload my email with promotions! I just love it! Alenka.
