Tell people who are travelling to OZ that there is duty free at airports on arrival. This saves time if you have only hand luggage as I had. If you buy in Dubai, for example, you have to have it wrapped and taken to a different place then collect in baggage in 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!
