Thank you so much to Max and team on looking after me during my travels and bringing me home safely with out a single hiccup. You are the best
Oli was really very helpful as my flight kept getting cancelled. He did a very good job getting me back
The team were absolutely amazing and supportive during my extended stay in Cape Town due to the cancellations of BA and KLM flights because of the pandemic. I am so glad I had booked through DialAFlight as I don't believe I would have been able to manage the changes that came in. I can't thank you enough for getting me home safely and being so supportive and motivated even though it must have been a nightmare for you!
I have found everyone at DialAFlight very professional particularly Harvey, who always goes the extra mile to help me and ensures that I get a good deal.
I really appreciate that you kept me updated about changes or cancellations on flights. You did your best, however the situation was beyond your control. You also kept your promise about partial refund. A very big thank you to the DialAFlight team.
Christian and his team were outstanding from start to finish with not a detail left to chance. Even when Christian wasn’t available his colleagues were briefed and supported him fully. We felt looked after at all times. I would recommend them to anyone. Excellent experience
The team at DialAFlight helped us with a tricky trip to South Africa with cancellations by various airlines.. We got stuck in South Africa and if it were not for the persistence and professional attitude by DialAFlight we would still be stuck there.
I was in South Africa and had to curtail my trip due to COVID and spoke to the 24 hour help desk. Particular thanks are due to Pauline who amended my travel plans promptly and to Leah my travel manager.
Gavin has been excellent! Plus Callum and Ted.
Good support in difficult times
A usual an excellent service and it's great to have a helpful agent at the end of the phone when flight changes are needed.
I want to thank Bruno for going the extra mile to get me back to the UK before the lockdown in South Africa. He answered all my questions and concerns. I have been using DAF for many years
Thank you so much Stafford for an amazing itinerary, hotels and locations. All jaw dropping good. Also thank you for coming up trumps when BA cancelled our return flight. Unlike some people travelling with other travel companies who were left stranded, you seamlessly re-arranged everything and kept us notified - a fantastic service in trying times!
Jerry was very helpful when we needed to come home early due to Coronavirus. When we need flights we can always rely on him.
The young man who sorted my flight was very helpful. He did a great job and luckily I got back safe during this very difficult time.
Whenever I emailed for information you always responded which was a great help and gave me peace of mind while I was trying to get back home to my family.
DialAFlight are just the best. And Ryan pulls out all the stops for us. Very many thanks
With a very difficult situation all members and especially Niall were brilliant. Flights changed and constantly keeping us informed
Thanks for very efficiently arranging to change my flight back given my decision to cut short my trip
Thanks for the professional and helpful service rendered while out in South Africa at the height of Covid 19, bringing me back safely to my family and friends
Thank you Lincoln, Luke and colleagues for all your help in getting us speedily back to the UK
Jacob was wonderful as were the other members of staff I spoke to in trying to get early flights out of South Africa. They have forged our loyalty for future bookings.
Lucas kept me up to date. Always receive an excellent service from him
So impressed with friendly and efficient service especially during this virus outbreak. App easy to use. Will be my go to booking agent from now on
Stan was an absolute star! Even my wife noticed.
Went above and beyond when our flight was cancelled
You were accessible, helpful and efficient.
Fantastic service especially when flights had to be changed at the last minute. Thank you Chris and Sally
Roger was very helpful when I needed to bring my return flight forward from Cape Town.
Friends have been raving about Cape Town for so long now, that finally I thought it was about time I paid a visit. It's one of the easiest longhaul destinations to visit - because with hardly any time difference (an hour ahead when we went) there's no jet-lag to deal with. So after a direct flight to South Africa we could start to enjoy the holiday the moment we arrived.
A TRIP OF A LIFETIME
The trip with my boyfriend Eddie was for eight days, which I thought was probably not long enough to do all the things we planned. We wanted to see great places during some sightseeing trips and visit top restaurants, and the holiday also had to include golf, as Eddie and I are keen players.
We started with a three-night safari at the Sabi Sabi game reserve, situated on the edge of Kruger National Park. We couldn't wait to take a game drive through the bushveld. The Earth Lodge in the reserve was wonderful. I expected we might have to rough it on a safari, but the place was luxurious, serving great food and excellent wine (it had the most amazing cellar – one evening we had a private dinner and sampled lots of fine wines).
One of the highlights for me was a sunset picnic during one of our game drives. We had gin and tonics and some nibbles while sitting on top of our 4x4 as we watched the sun go down. It was a magical experience, and Eddie and I were both blown away by it.
OUR SAFARI EXPERIENCE
To see the wildlife you have to get up early, and the close encounter we had with a leopard, who was strolling behind the vehicle at one point, was fascinating. It wasn't frightening at all, rather a great feeling that we were in the middle of a huge adventure.
Back at the lodge, it was great talking to the other people who had been out on walks and drives. It was a chance for all of us to share our experiences.
CAPE TOWN CALLING
After the safari, our next stop was Cape Town, which is one of Africa's most fashionable cities. We stayed at the Cape Grace Hotel and our room had a fabulous view of Table Mountain. The Cape Grace had the feel of an old-school grand hotel and occupies a brilliant location near the busy V&A Waterfront, which has lots of shops and restaurants.
The great thing about South Africa for British travellers at the moment is the exchange rate. While sterling is struggling against the euro and dollar these days, we got about 17 rands to the pound, and prices are very reasonable. When Eddie studied the menu in restaurants he would point out wines for £20 which would easily cost £80 a bottle in Britain.
On the spur of the moment, one day we decided to hike up Table Mountain, which took about two-and-a-half hours. We were warned that it could be very windy at the top, but fortunately the weather was really warm and sunny during our jaunt.
FOOD & ACTIVITES GALORE
On another occasion, we managed to secure a table at the trendy and very popular Shortmarket Club restaurant in the city centre. The restaurant serves modern food with a South African twist.
We'd been looking forward to a round of golf since our arrival, as South Africa has some famous courses. We had an excellent round at the Steenberg Golf Club. The fairways and greens were well manicured and the course had amazing views. A good round of golf was followed by a great meal in the club's fine bistro, where we had a glass of sublime local wine.
Another place worth exploring are the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens which host numerous outdoor concerts during the warmer months. The whole holiday was perfect and at the end I said to Eddie: 'I don't want to go home!' When we left for the airport, I had tears in my eyes, and that doesn't happen very often at the end of a holiday. I really want to go back and next time I'll take my seven year-old daughter Betsy, because I think she will love it.
And Eddie is keen to go diving with sharks. I think I'll give that experience a miss… perhaps I'll go shopping with Betsy that day instead.
