"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.

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.

Mrs S Kelly
I have been using Sunshine holidays for a number of years and can honestly say they are great, no problems with anything and always well within my budget.
Jul 2016

Mr L Morgan
Sunshine was an excellent way to book a holiday that suited our needs and at a very reasonable price. All of the documentation Sunshine gave us was very handy, and they kept us up to date on how things were going right up to the holiday! The hotel we stayed in was excellent for the price we paid; we were particularly impressed with the food. It was our first time using Sunshine or any other website to book a holiday. This will be the only way we would book a holiday in future! Thank you for a lovely holiday!

Great service from start to finish, great value for money, very informative staff, and good to be able to pay your holiday over several months, great company.

Miss E King
This is the second holiday we have booked through Sunshine and we were not disappointed! The reminder emails up to your departure date are so handy and the hotel we stayed in was so clean and friendly. We always recommend Sunshine and will be using them for our holiday next year as there is nothing to fault!

Mr T Wilkes
We used Sunshine last year for our holidays. It gave us a really good quote for our holiday plus it's really useful being able to pay amounts off the total whenever it suits us. We have booked 2017's holiday with you already.
