This trip makes a great diversion while holidaying in the Rainbow Nation.

BA's handling of firearms is a fiasco. An expensive fiasco. The protocol BA told you did not match what T3 security chose to do, and G4 [the outsource that manages firearms paperwork landside] stated that T3 security are out of step with T5 security AND head office. I paid an additional £315 to get my rifle onto BA059 and charging for the carriage of the ammunition case per a second firearm is a travesty. I am appalled at BA's lack of professionalism in central bookings, in T3 security and their T3 ticketing.

The flight from London to Cape Town via Doha is very long. I would not recommend this route to others, and I would not take it myself in the future

We had an amazing experience and many thanks to Carter for his advice and planning. of the holiday. Eighth year of booking longhaul with you!

I think you should advise customers travelling on motorways in SA that there are tolls and GB credit cards are not accepted for payment. It caused us a major headache as we had to return to a services to get cash as we had used it all up.

Flights were all great - can really recommend Lufthansa! The only thing I would say is that we do not recommend Bidvest Car Hire - the vehicle they gave us had absolutely non existent shock absorbers - very dangerous.

Everything so easy particularly when you need help because of age and infirmity. Many thanks particularly to Vinny.

Although your service cannot be faulted on our return flight no wheelchair assistance was booked from George to Cape Town and then no Halal meal was booked for my husband by BA from Cape Town to London. I don't believe DialAFlight is at fault but I think you should know how the airlines get it wrong.
