You should be fine laying them on sand. It maybe better in the long run to put a dry mix of sand and cement in between the gaps.

And unless you're really strong, check you can lift the paving slabs easily. Speaking from experience here - we cheerfully went ahead and bought the ones we liked, without taking this into consideration, and it made the whole thing a nightmare to do.

We just used sand for our path down the side of the house. the slabs were so heavy I doubt they will ever move! Luckily dh is a bodybuilder and did all the lifting (I couldn't actually lift them ). We used a couple of inches, and it was about a bag for each slab (big slabs though). The simplest thing is to ask the supplier of the slabs how much sand you will need.
