Our Core Values


We tackle every challenge with a positive mindset and the determination to solve any problems that arise. We think creatively, embrace new technology and find innovative ways to bring each holiday vision to fruition. From booking flights to sourcing accommodation or finding fun excursions – you dream it, we design it.


 We believe that the best companies empower their people and customers. We are passionate about providing our people with the ability to continually develop their knowledge, and in turn, delivering expert service as standard. At Ocean striving to be the best also means having fun along the way, believing in big effort, bigger smiles.


There are no shortcuts to doing things properly. We work hard to get it right first time and take pride in our commitment to putting our people and our customers first. We take ownership of our roles and take responsibility for our actions in open and honest conversations. We look out for each other, and we never pass the buck!

Our Values in Action

Our three core values are always to be used together to inform our decisions and translate into our day-to-day actions, empowering employees with the best intentions throughout all tasks. Moreover, by creating a culture where developing ourselves and others are the norm, we aspire to improve our services not only for current colleagues and customers but for a better travel industry in the future.

As the UK’s fastest-growing travel company and Europe’s leading Florida holiday expert, we undertook the responsibility of creating new Accessibility Programme. Launched after twelve months of thorough research and development, the programme offers a service and resource hub dedicated to making holidays accessible for all, no matter the disability.

Customers can now book holidays knowing that every additional need is taken care of – whether at the airport or in resort – by staff with an unrivalled knowledge of accessible options in the Sunshine State, all at no extra cost. The programme takes a holistic approach, covering everything from mobility, visual and hearing impairment through to cognitive challenges with accessibility champions in all areas of the business.
