Very helpful staff. Have used DialAFlight twice and will certainly use them again. Such great service. Thank you

Flew to Brisbane

We really appreciate the services from DialAFlight. Enjoy having the support of named staff who come across as very caring and helpful. We will be contacting again for next year. Wouldn't go to any other flight provider as long as we keep receiving good service at very competitive rates. The only issue this year was we sacrificed getting a good transfer for cost. We will not make the same mistake next year!

Only drawback to journey was having a 5 hour wait in Singapore with no lounge open for most of that time! Otherwise all well, as always.

Many thanks to Marco and the team. Marco spent a lot of time arranging our holiday to Australia. Everything - flights, overnight hotel, town house in Noosa, hire cars and visas were sorted for us and there were no hitches at all. Delighted with everything and will definitely contact you again regarding next year's holiday. Can completely recommend.
