Every time I phoned they were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
Always a joy to book my trips with Robert at DialAFlight. Knowledgeable, patient and supportive
Our agent was very patient and helpful
Holiday booked in 2019 but cancelled a couple of times due to Covid-19 but DialAFlight kept with us and it was great
I would recommend premium economy which we will do the next time
Kieran is extremely helpful, professional and knowledgeable and always finds me amazing deals.
Can't wait for the next flight! Thanks for all your help.
Wonderful company will definitely use again
Going to book another trip to Australia again through you.
I have been booking through DialAFlight for over 5 years and have always had a wonderful experience. Nadia has always been at hand to offer support.
Harry was amazing
The flights were a good price, you saved me money by changing days, you answered all my questions and got in touch just before we left to make sure all was OK.
Thank you Cody. First rate.
Always helpful - I usually ask for Amy and she's great
I tell all my friends about DialAFlight. I cannot recommend you highly enough.
Bradley always comes up with the best routes and prices. Always reliable, friendly and so helpful too. A professional service.
Nicole Luong gave us a wonderful service
Always excellent service. Polite and helpful at all times.
Chris Briggs was fantastic, very helpful and will definitely use him and DialAFlight again.
All arrangements made by you were perfect and your help and support is valued
Great service but Qatar flights are not very good
It would be helpful if next to each of the international flights on your app that you put how many hours the flight is. It is difficult to work this out with the different time zones.
From the moment I booked my trip to Australia everything ran smoothly. Having just returned after 4 weeks away the only item DialAFlight can’t fix is my Jet Lag. Thankyou Barney for all your advice and commitment that ensured my most memorable holiday ever
Waiting at Heathrow for 6 hours for a 35 minute flight to Manchester wasn’t much fun Otherwise well done DialAFlight.
Lee Coughtrey has been brilliant as always. Thanks, all worked great.
Great communication from Gino, we found him very helpful
Great service and customer support throughout. The holiday worked out perfectly.
My recent trip to Australia was a family emergency. Noah was very helpful and went out of his way to ensure I got to my destination as quickly as I could. He assisted me to check in when I was unsure what to do. I will continue to use and recommend you to friends and family.
Been with you for years -,always been contactable and helpful
Australia is awash with 'must see' destinations, but the Gold Coast was at one time never really one of them. Queensland's formerly brash coastal holiday spot - home of the bikini and dubbed the nation's plastic surgery capital - was long regarded as a kind of Antipodean Blackpool. But boy, have things changed!
THE NEW GOLD COAST
A thriving film industry has sprung up. Thor: Ragnarok, starring local Chris Hemsworth, and the latest Pirates Of The Caribbean are two blockbusters filmed at the huge Gold Coast Village Roadshow Studios.
Then there's the mega theme parks such as Dreamworld, Wet'n'Wild Water World and Warner Bros Movie World which have helped make the Gold Coast an exciting family holiday destination.
And Spring 2018 will see the region's coastline and glorious rainforest interior beamed on to our screens during the 21st Commonwealth Games, held on the Gold Coast and in Queensland's state capital, Brisbane.
The Gold Coast is actually a collection of vibrant and distinct neighbourhoods fringing 41 miles of breathtaking beaches.
One way to discover them is on the new hop-on, hop-off G:link tram network, which trundles up and down the coast from Surfers Paradise down to Broadbeach, with its elegant concert hall, casino, and huge, designer-label packed Pacific Fair shopping mall.
Just behind the beachfront, neighbourhoods have been turned into island communities by 162 miles of inland waterways.
'We have more canals than Amsterdam and Venice combined,' our captain tells us as we sail off to explore the waterways with family-run Wyndham Cruises.
'We may not have the history, but we have the beauty. And we often see ospreys, turtles and dolphins around these waters. And 17,000 humpback whales migrate past the Gold Coast each year.'
The boat slips around water-ways that have folded the land into lush pleats of acacia, palm and eucalyptus trees. On each pleat sits a lavish house, where his 'n' hers jet-skis spoon on private jetties.
This is ultra-exclusive Main Beach, Hollywood's home from home when on location ('that's Johnny Depp's house, that's Penelope Cruz's').
A TOUCH OF GLAMOUR
When they want to party, the stars head to nearby Marina Mirage: decidedly more Monte Carlo than Blackpool, this is the upscale harbour attached to the swanky Palazzo Versace hotel.
The Gold Coast is bursting with imaginative eateries and artisan breweries, and there's a booming nightlife to go with it. The Collective - a five-kitchens-in-one concept with roof bar at Palm Beach - is standing room only.
It's also standing-room only at Miami Marketta, an old tram shed converted into a mix of bars, street-food stalls and live bands. We eat, drink and dance as if we're at a music festival.
An hour's drive up the coast, Brisbane may be Australia's third-largest city, but parts of it have the feel of an old-fashioned country town with plenty of colonial architecture.
I follow the picturesque Riverwalk footpath along the banks of the Brisbane River to New Farm park. Popular with locals for weekend barbies, the key attraction is the magnificent Brisbane Powerhouse: a former 1920s power station, now an arts complex with terraced bars, DJs and bands.
The 214-mile-long Brisbane River flows through the heart of the city.
AT ONE WITH NATURE
I catch a Miramar Cruise from South Bank - Brisbane's cultural hub - to see more of it. It's a beautiful journey past eucalyptus trees crammed with parrots, and vistas of mangrove lagoons and bat colonies. We disembark at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, a wildlife centre for rescued orphaned and injured koalas.
Although they are notoriously lethargic, they are also adorable, and seeing them in all their fluffy-eared cuteness is the perfect end to a trip Down Under.
