About Us

Ocean Holidays was founded in 2004 by two sets of brothers: Daniel and David Ox and George and Harry Hastings, who are still very much active in the business today.

They set out selling holidays with no website, just a handful of staff and Teletext as their only form of marketing. From these humble beginnings, Ocean Holidays was created, and the company now consists of three unique and distinct travel brands.

Ocean Florida, the largest direct to consumer Florida specialist of its kind in Europe; personalised travel management company, Winged Boots which leads in luxury leisure followed by business travel; and Ocean Beds, the largest worldwide provider of Florida vacation home rentals to the global travel trade.

With Headquarters in Romford, Ocean Holidays continues to innovate and evolve within the travel industry. In 2022 it received a 1 Star Best Companies Accreditation, succeeding its ‘one to watch’ in 2021.

In January 2023 Ocean Holidays were awarded the inaugural Employer of the Year award at the Travel Weekly Globes.

As the UK’s fastest-growing travel company for two years in a row according to ATOL statistics, Ocean Holidays continue to provide an environment where its people can thrive, and where growth and great culture go hand-in-hand.
