Given the need to change flights due to the Covid-19 situation your staff were first class and we were able to return safely all on time.
Quick response to my concerns over covid19. Flights rearranged efficiently. Thank you for your excellent service throughout.
Change of flights to Edinburgh instead of Copenhagen was really appreciated - thank you
With all the travel problems caused by the Coronavirus epidemic, and cancellation of my return flight by Qantas, Roray saved the day by getting me a seat on an earlier return flight.
Josh and Stella were outstanding during this hard time and got me home safe.
Marco and Troy are the team that dealt with my booking. They were both very helpful and couldn't do enough for an oldie like me
Great flights. Malaysian are excellent.
All I can say is this disaster has caused so many problems for people like us going to visit our family in Australia. But being told that we can be flown home on the 1st June is a bonus
Elizabeth did our original booking and she was brilliant. We regularly use DialAFlight and have recommended you often
Kylie checked day before leaving Sydney that all OK with coronavirus issues.
I would just like to thank Harriet for going above and beyond her duty to make things in this difficult time less stressful - even emailing me to make sure my dad got home safely which he did but only because she managed to get him on an earlier flight. I will be using you guys from now on as in my opinion you are a step above anyone else
I can’t thank you enough for the speed and the work you put in to get me back from Australia earlier this week when I was notified that my original flight with Emirates was cancelled.
Kieran was brilliant with how he went the extra mile
Excellent, always use and recommend
Due to the coronavirus situation flight times changed. I cannot thank or praise DialAFlight enough for their calls of reassurance and updated information. Well done.
DialAFlight provided an excellent service for my recent trip both in booking the trip initially and then in making adjustments as airlines started to close down operations. Importantly they were there to give good advice when it looked like I would be stuck in Australia. The 24 hr helpline was brilliant and very reassuring under difficult circumstances. I was recommended to use DialAFlight and in turn I will now thoroughly do the same to all my contacts. Thanks to all the excellent staff working at this difficult time.
Had to phone out of hours twice from Australia to re-arrange flight home and they were brilliant. Had it not been for them we would have been stuck in Australia due to flights being cancelled due to lockdown. Thank you DialAFlight for raising your game when needed.
Many people could not contact their agents and were having to buy new flights home. We were lucky. Many thanks
Gavin went beyond his duties and thank you for getting us home. Qatar were excellent too.
As the impact of the Coronavirus started to take its toll worldwide, Stephen contacted me to offer an earlier or later departure window from Australia. I was on a family visit and his speedy intervention was much appreciated.
Absolutely excellent in every way. Thank you so much for getting our son home safe and well at last minute. You are a brilliant team
Was very pleased when l had to see if l could get an earlier flight back to London because a connecting flight was cancelled. I was impressed that my call was answered quickly and at 5.30 am by a very polite lady.
The booking process was easy and thorough. Leo saved the day when KLM cancelled our return flight. We travel frequently to Australia but have always booked directly with the airline (8 times with Etihad or Emirates). In future, we will only use DialAFlight.
Thanks to Mason who got me home from Oz
Got us home from Oz after flight cancelled
Our return flight from Sydney to Singapore was cancelled due to Covid 19. Joey worked hard to contact Singapore Airlines and make sure we got home safely. Thank you.
No problems whatsoever - as always brilliant service and answers to any questions in a polite and professional manner
Francis was excellent and we were so lucky to get a flight home for my sister. He went out of his way to help. Can't thank him enough.
We had to cut our holiday short due to Australia shutting its borders. Rang Finn to sort out a new flight home and he went above and beyond and got us home a day before shutdown. Can't thank him enough for all he has done.
In these difficult coronavirus times the DAF staff were excellent. We needed to change our return plans. They answered the phone very, very quickly and efficiently and offered us alternative flights home. I can’t thank you enough as travelling with your company took all the stress out of a very difficult situation. Can’t rate your staff and company high enough
Sydney is one of the best cities in the world to fly into. It always makes me smile. You see Sydney Harbour in all its radiance and prepare yourself for a beauty fest. In this perfect city, the sun shines, the water sparkles and superb sights abound. We were treating ourselves to five days there to celebrate my husband Jonathan's birthday, and had splashed out on the Park Hyatt Hotel, perfectly located for the historic Rocks district and busy Circular Quay, and boasting ravishing views of the pearly white Opera House. It was also handy for climbing the Harbour Bridge.
On the big day, clad in the special blue and grey bridge suits, having taken the required breathalyser test and signed the necessary forms, we joined the eager climbers aiming for a 360 degree view of the city. Not only was the climb brilliantly organised, but the views from the 440ft vantage point at the top were astounding. I'd booked Nomad in the Surry Hills for Jonathan's birthday dinner. Think old warehouse with lots of light, chic yet intimate. Also think glossy goat's cheese drizzled with truffle honey, juicy roast pork with cheese and sweet potato gratin, and feather-light doughnuts dipped in rosewater and cardamon custard.
The meal was outstanding. We ended the evening with champagne on our hotel balcony, humming Lou Reed's Perfect Day and drinking in the view of the shimmering Opera House. I wanted to book something extra special for my car-loving husband's birthday gift. So, the next day, a lovingly polished 1964 EH Holden Premier picked us up. Even at the Hyatt, where flash cars are common, this gleaming motor icon caused quite a stir.
We cruised around the boho Redfern district and were charmed by Bronte Beach. We sipped flat whites on a grassy knoll overlooking the rolling waves of Bondi Beach and lunched at Kitchen by Mike, a fab favourite with Sydneysiders.
A must-do is a trip to the Blue Mountains, so named due to the blue haze from sunlight interacting with eucalyptus oil particles in the air.
A two-hour drive from the city brings you to views that blow you away. There are hundreds of uncrowded lookout points, cascading waterfalls, steep ravines and rain forests. The area is steeped in Aboriginal history. We checked into the stylish Lilianfels Resort & Spa, a five-star hotel renowned for fabulous food and adjacent to the awesome rock formation called The Three Sisters.
Lilianfels is also next to Scenic World, with the world's steepest incline railway, a cableway to and from the rain forest floor, and the Scenic Skyway, a glass-bottomed cable car gliding between cliff tops across the stunningly rugged Jamison Valley. We'd been told nearby Leura village was flush with restaurants and coffee houses.
We strolled down the tree-lined main street, popping into quirky boutiques, and picnicked on Leura Bakehouse fresh-from-the-oven pies in the idyllic grounds of the renowned Everglades Gardens. And so to the highlight of our New South Wales adventure. The drive from the Blue Mountains to the Wolgan Valley was scenic and relatively short. We arrived at the One&Only Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa, where red sandstone rocks towering above this most tranquil of private valleys gleamed in the evening sun, kangaroos and wallabies grazed peacefully, and the beautiful, scattered resort cottages were barely visible. In ours, a double-sided cosy fireplace separated the lounge and bedroom, the shower had a glass star-gazing roof, and we had our own 25ft heated pool.
Mountain bikes are parked outside and hiking and horse riding are included, as are all meals. The dining experience, from breakfast to dinner, was superlative. The spacious spa is private and akin to pampering heaven. If you want some serious spoiling, fantastic bush walking and wildlife spotting, this is the place. The only downside? We booked three nights and wish we'd opted for six.
