It's a case of juggle, shuffle, grin and bear it.

Yes, it's high season again with airport check in systems in meltdown, pilots and baggage handlers threatening to walk out over pay and beleaguered families left stranded as flights are cancelled or delayed, and dream holidays turned into a nightmare.

For those DIY travellers who organise their own trips a hot and crowded airport can be a very lonely place when holiday plans are ruined before they start, the kids are crying, there are no nearby hotels available and you can't find anybody to help you through the chaos.

And while we can't guarantee that your plans won't be affected we'll work tirelessly on your behalf to ease the pain and make sure the delays are minimal, alternative accommodation is found and your holiday gets back on track.

When you book flights, hotels, car hire and excursions with us you always have a dedicated and experienced professional at the end of a phone who can help you to solve any problem that may arise.

10 things you didn't know last month

  1. 1. MacBook Pros banned on all U.S. flights

    Last week, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) surprised everyone by announcing that select MacBook Pros are now banned on U.S. flights as they have batteries that pose a fire risk when they overheat. You won't be able to fly with your laptop in your carry-on or in your checked bag. That means leaving your laptop behind. Apple does seem to be making efforts to put things right by way of a battery swap. To check, enter your serial number on Apple's recall page, then you can send or take your laptop to the Apple Repair Center to have the battery swapped. Once replaced, you can legally fly with your laptop. However, airline staff may not take your word for it, so it's probably best to bring the paperwork to prove that your battery has been replaced just to be safe.
  2. 2. When in Rome don't sit on the Steps

    Rome has banned tourists from sitting on the famous Spanish Steps - with fines of up to £370 if they are caught by the police. The city has previously barred visitors from eating or drinking on the marble staircase leading from the church Trinita del Monti down to Plazza di Spagna. The 174 steps, which featured in the 1953 film Roman Holiday, starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, underwent a £1.4 million renovation in 2016. The marble had become discoloured by pollution, caked in chewing gum and stained from wine and coffee spills.
  3. 3. Beware rip-off airport exchange rates

    Airport bureaux de change are cashing in on the failing pound by giving holidaymakers paltry rates. Families travelling from some UK airports this August have found a pound was worth just 0.78€ and less than $0.90 - close to a third less than market exchange rates. Experts accused airport currency exchange firms of cashing in on the slump, caused in part by Brexit uncertainty, and taking advantage of British travellers. Gatwick earned £26.6 million from bureau de change income in the year to the end of March while Heathrow last published this information in 2016, when it received £50 million.
  4. 4. Black marks for Thomas Cook and TUI

    Eight million Britons travel with Thomas Cook, TUI and TUI-owned First Choice every year - but the three firms got the lowest ratings in a survey. Which? asked 8,000 customers to rate their accommodation, service, the holiday reps, organisation and value for money. TUI customers said they paid extra for a better hotel view that never transpired. Package deal outfit Thomas Cook, which languished at the bottom of the survey, scored just two out of five for its reps with travellers saying they were often unhelpful or non-existent.
  5. 5. Grasshopper plague on sin city

    Swarms of grasshoppers have invaded Las Vegas, carpeting the pavements and assembling in swirling masses in the bright lights above the Strip. They came out of the desert in numbers that recalled the plague of locusts visited upon Egypt in Exodus as a warning to the pharaoh. Though 'sin city' isn't ruled by a pharaoh, it does have a pyramid-shaped hotel which the insects enveloped. In a video shot by a taxi driver, grasshoppers can be seen gathering in the beam of light that shoots from the top of the Luxor hotel and casino. The swarms were so bad they were detected by weather radar.
  6. 6. Airbnb hosts are really cashing in

    Airbnb hosts in Europe's most popular cities are earning hundreds of thousands of pounds a year, and in some cases millions, according to new research by Telegraph Travel. The highest earner in Barcelona had revenue of nearly 2.3 million euros, renting out 63 properties. In Paris, one host earned 1.35 million euros from 50 properties. Earnings were also high in other European destinations, with hosts in Berlin, Brussels, Amsterdam and Munich all earning more than 250,000 euros.
  7. 7. No more dragon spotting for a year

    Komodo Island, home of the scary Komodo dragon, will close to the public for a year from January in an effort to help protect the dwindling population of the rare lizards. The Indonesian island, part of the larger Komodo National Park which will otherwise remain open, has seen an influx of visitors in recent years sparking concern that the habitat of the world's largest species of lizard is under threat. The fallow year will also help numbers of the dragon's prey, such as deer, to recover.
  8. 8. No more guiding by the Ski Club

    That great Alpine institution The Ski Club of Great Britain has announced it is to end its piste leading service in the wake of a legal clampdown by French authorities on unqualified guides. The end of the informal offering was met with sadness by members, with some saying the move threatens the existence of the 116-year-old society. The club's chief executive Ian Holt said: "There is no alternative in the current climate." The popular ski hosting service came under fire in 2014 , when a guide was arrested in Val d'Isere. Now its spin off, the leading service, is to fold across Europe.
  9. 9. Taking the money, not the Mickey

    The entry price into Disney's amusement resorts has soared by as much as 5,000 per cent since the parks opened, according to research. Disneyland California opened its doors in 1955, with a ticket costing just $2.50. By 2005 the coast had risen to $56, but today it is $120 (around £106). Walt Disney World in Florida did not fare much better with the original entry price $3.50 in 1971 and now costing $109, an increase of 3,014 per cent.
  10. 10. For Azamara cruise ship it's a case of dock and roll

    Greggs' famous sausage rolls have become a culinary delicacy - a must-try for foodie travellers, it would seem. The baker received a bulk order for its treats for passengers on board the Azamara Journey cruise ship when it stopped in the Port of Tyne for the first time on Monday and guests were treated to a bumper delivery of sausage rolls, vegan sausage rolls and the north east delicacy of Stottie Cake. Norwegian captain Johannes Tysse said: "Our UK crew told us that a visit to Newcastle wouldn't be complete without a taste of Greggs as a culinary 'must-try.'

    My Favourite Holiday

    Monty Don visits the gardens surrounding the Taj Mahal...

    TV gardener Monty Don slept in a French loo and proposed on a boat in Scotland

    Did you go on holidays much as a child? My father was in the army and my parents travelled widely while they were younger. I was born in Berlin, but travel barely featured when I was growing up. We would house-sit for relatives in Christchurch, Dorset, an hour's drive from where we lived, and that was it.

    When was your first holiday abroad? When I was 18 I attempted to hitchhike to Greece with a friend. I had my guitar with me and he had his leg in plaster following an accident. It was all a bit harebrained. We made it as far as Aix-en-Provence in France where the heavens opened for three days, our tents were completely engulfed and we spent a night sleeping in a public lavatory.

    What happened after that? When the weather cleared I realised what a beautiful place Aix was. I saw a sign advertising French lessons for foreigners at a local college, so, when I got home, I enrolled and returned the following year. I didn't attend lessons much, but I shared a flat with French students and played rugby and learned the language that way.

    How about romantic holidays? When I met Sarah, my wife to be, we spent a week with some friends in the tiny privately owned Shiant Isles, in the Minch, on the Outer Hebrides. There's a fresh water spring and a bothy on one of them and that's it. We took all our food, collected driftwood for the fire and fished for supper - it was idyllic. One day I rowed Sarah out to sea and refused to row back until she agreed to marry me. Thankfully she said yes.

    Do you like adventure holidays? I used to do a bit of climbing, but never had the nerve for the big stuff. I lost a good friend who was a much better climber than me. I'm happy just walking in the mountains. I've hiked in the French Alps, the Pyrenees and the Himalayas and I regularly walk in the Brecon Beacons.

    What places do you like to visit? I love deserts. People imagine them as barren, but the Australian Outback is beautiful. The Desert Park in Alice Springs is fantastic, and the Sahara is quite dramatic. I'm still waiting to see a desert bloom though. My planned attempt to do so in the Kalahari was ruined by appendicitis.

    When do you like to take holidays? Work trips aside, my holidays are taken in winter, as leaving my garden in summer is impossible. I have found a way to combine work and pleasure on a project with a friend to create a garden from scratch at his home on the Greek island of Hydra. Conditions can be harsh - scorching sun in summer and surprisingly cold in winter - so it's a challenge, but a real joy. I've been about a dozen times now and got to know the island and the locals.

    What gardens have impressed you the most on your travels? I've visited gardens all around the world and particularly enjoyed Ninfa, in the Pontine marshes of Italy and Vaux le Vicomte, a grand chateau garden near Fontainbleau in France, which was the template for Versailles. But I'm never happier than when I'm in my own garden in Herefordshire. Longmeadow will always be the most special place on earth for me.

    • Saved our holiday to Copenhagen

      Booked my flights to Copenhagen with DialAFlight and happy with the transaction. Decided to try Airbnb for accommodation but as we arrived, I received a text from Airbnb to say the accommodation had been cancelled and refunded. I made a call from Copenhagen airport to DialAFlight, explained the situation and within a few minutes was booked into a hotel in the centre of Copenhagen, Ben even managed to call the hotel whilst I was on the phone and arranged a sofa bed to accommodate my children and avoid us the cost of an extra room.

      I have been really pleased with DialAFlight and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them - I will definitely be using them for any future holidays - Ben was calm and professional throughout what was a stressful situation for me that could quite easily have ruined our city break. Every time I spoke to DialAFlight in the UK also, I have always had a helpful representative on the phone advising me - thank you DialAFlight.

      Michelle Cox gave DialAFlight 5 stars on Trustpilot. Sparkling footnote: Michelle's name was pulled out of the hat in our monthly Trustpilot draw and a case of Prosecco is on its way.
    • Why I'll use DialAFlight again

      I'm not very good at using technology. Whilst trying to find an affordable ticket to America for me and my granddaughter I came across DialAFlight. I gave them a go and was amazed by the service they gave. Not only were the tickets cheaper than any I had found, the price actually went down before I booked. Next Leo kept in touch making sure I had the necessary paper work to enter the states. Finally he booked us in before we went to the airport and gave me a number to phone if l had trouble in the states. Thanks for a great trip.

    • Fantastic 5 star service yet again

      I've used DialAFlight for several years now. Always dealt with Amy who listens to my requirements and looks for the deals that best suit us. Whether its direct flights or multi flights along with car hire, she works to find us a deal. That's why I return year after year. I've also recommended Amy to friends who have also been very happy. If the price changes for the better on different flights then Amy or one of her colleagues calls and explains the changes and discusses if I'd like to change. Just waiting for next year's flights to go on sale.

      Rob gave DialAFlight 5 stars on Trustpilot.
    • Excellent, personal service

      I have used DialAFlight several times for flight bookings and Jackson and his colleagues have always been helpful and efficient. I like speaking to a "person" rather than the online impersonal experience, which I can recommend highly. I shall always use them as my first choice for flights.

      Tony Bussey gave DialAFlight 5 stars on Trustpilot.
