Curtis has always been a great help especially when we had to change our flights due to storm Dennis.
Brilliant help and Hotel Las Palmeras very good as were the flights.
Travel arrangements were flawless but the airline performance was hampered by weather.
Great service from Darryll - responsive, proactive, effective.
Interesting that British customs are rigorous about separating gels into separate bag but Schipol has the technology which allows passengers to leave everything in bag,
Fabulous trip thanks to Carter
It was good to have a short break that worked for once, save for one hour delay on Easyjet outward.
I have booked other trips with DAF and it has always been a very pleasant experience
Always going that extra mile to make sure everything runs smoothly
Brilliant team at DialAFlight especially Kieran.
Happy with service
Brilliant service from a great team
Quick and easy. Handled very well
Very, very good service. Everything in order and received texts about coronavirus updates
From my very first phone call to information regarding possible delays to my flight home DialAFlight was excellent. Cannot praise them highly enough. Have already recommended to friends and family.
We have been booking flights for several years now with DialAFlight and mainly with Ralph. We always receive excellent service and competitive prices.
Logan is always helpful and provides a great service.
First class support
Clare and her team were efficient, helpful and friendly as always
Great flights each way with EasyJet. Great customer service from DialAFlight. Trevor rang us the day before and said have a great holiday and if you have any problems give me a ring. A great service and would only ever book through them again and certainly recommend 100 %
Adam went above and beyond to make our trip perfect. This was the third of four trips he has organised for me during the past year and all absolutely faultless
Great trip. Hotel was excellent as was your service. Will definitely use you again and have already recommended you.
Excellent service once again - just what I have come to expect over the years.
Ashley delivered as usual

Alfie as usual got us a great deal .
Vinnie did everything we wanted. Travel and accommodation were excellent. He has never let us down.
Wonderful as always! Thank you Neil
Where do we stand on nudity? I quite like it myself, when traipsing from the bathroom to the bedroom on a balmy night or swimming in a moon-lit sea when no one else is around.
But that's not the Formentera way. After a superb lunch at the Gecko Hotel and Beach Club – our extremely comfortable billet on Migjorn beach on the island's southern flank, with glorious Mediterranean views – we head off for a leisurely postprandial but are soon distracted by a couple lying naked in the sand.
THE NAKED ISLE
The man is all legs akimbo, his female companion spread out as if slumber has taken hold midway through a yoga stretch. They are far from the exception.
But, then, this 12-mile long island (a mere 30-minute ferry ride from Ibiza) has long been one of the let-it-all-hang-out capitals of Europe. And one of the most paradoxical.
It's where the languid, carefree spirit sits alongside a strict policy to protect the seagrasses; where construction of new buildings is limited; where you'll find no mega music clubs, not even (unlike its loud neighbour) much in the way of nightlife.
It is the smallest of Spain’s Balearic islands – and is popular as a day-trip destination for people staying in Ibiza. Formentera is particularly well known for its clear waters and long stretches of beach backed by dunes and pine trees. Compared to busy neighbours Ibiza, and Mallorca, nothing much seems to happen on Formentera – and that is meant as a compliment.
The main hub is Sant Francesc, a sleepy village that always manages to wake up in time for drinks and dinner. On a Sunday evening, a group of boys is playing football in the square, using the town hall door as one of the goals, with the white-washed fortress church of Sant Xavier looking on.
There's not, to be honest, a great deal in the way of culture on Formentera – although the Sunday and Thursday Hippy Market in Molar is a good window to the island's soul. The market is more chic than shabby, with whole families coming out to browse and, crucially, to browse at what everyone else is wearing.
GECKO BEACH CLUB
Back at Gecko – a favourite of Sienna Miller – it's all about pared-down luxury. Rooms are on the small side but most come with balconies and some have plunge pools. There's a long, wide pool in the garden on one side of the hotel, a huge lawn with cabanas on the other.
The sea is right there, and at first it's not especially luminous, but walk through the reeds and it soon clears invitingly. Where the water famously is compared with that of the Caribbean is along the northern spit, especially Illetes beach.
We hire bicycles for a day (€6 per bike) and pedal over to Illetes, stopping for a coffee in Es Pujols, the nearest thing Formentera has to a resort town. It's really one main street that leads down to the sea. Unspoilt, unshowy.
A word of warning about Illetes. Time your arrival with care, ideally before the day trippers arrive from Ibiza or after they have left. We make the mistake of turning up at midday and its beauty is somewhat overpowered by the crowd.
We eat our last lunch at a simple Chiringuito right next to the hotel called Kiosko 62, where you perch on stools. My lamb burger does a brilliant job of offering Formentera up on a plate. Cooked pink, it arrives without ceremony in a plain white bun with a slice of tomato on the side. Simple, unpretentious and utterly delicious.
Another extremely popular spot for lunch is Juan Y Andrea which is something of an institution. Open since the 1970s it serves Mediterranean specialties like fresh lobster in glorious surroundings overlooking Illetes beach.
The tables are arranged on the beach and the white-suited waiters walk barefoot. The venue attracts everyone from shipping magnates to movie stars, from ex-Presidents to honeymooners, much like the island itself.
