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.

Vinnie did everything we wanted. Travel and accommodation were excellent. He has never let us down.
Wonderful as always! Thank you Neil
'Over there,' said our driver gesturing to a smudge of land barely discernible in the gathering dusk, 'is Ithaca: the home of brave Ulysses.'
He put the stress on 'brave' as if there might have been another Ulysses around who had less of an appetite for man-to-man combat.
Nikos, our driver, was a man of the classics, it appeared. 'According to legend, Ulysses spent ten years fighting the Trojans in the Trojan War and then it took him ten years to get home after the war.
'This journey home is the story of The Odyssey.'
Unlike Corfu and other tourist-savvy islands such as Rhodes and Crete, Kefalonia still has the look of a place surprised to find itself in the holiday business.
If Ithaca has Ulysses, Kefalonia has heroes of a more recent vintage. The island was the setting for Louis de Bernière's modern classic Captain Corelli's Mandolin.
FIT FOR THE BIG SCREEN
And, surprisingly - as Holly-wood almost never seems to shoot films in their authentic setting - this was where Penelope Cruz, Nicolas Cage and Christian Bale came to star in the film of the book when it was made here in 2001.
The locals are ambivalent about the film, as it makes narrative capital out of the two worst events to affect the island in living memory.
The ill-fated occupation by the Germans during the Second World War (which resulted in the massacre of more than 5,000 Italian troops as portrayed in Captain Corelli's Mandolin); and the terrible earthquake which destroyed large parts of the island in August 1953, killing 600 people and making thousands homeless.
Driving across the island today, however, there is little to suggest recent troubles.
Kefalonia radiates a quiet contentment, perfect for someone who has arrived, like us, searching for utter peace and quiet. What quickly endeared us to Kefalonia was that this was a 'real' place where the locals clearly have a life beyond tourism.
FAVOURED BY THE STARS
It has become popular with the rich and famous as the perfect place to tie up their luxury yachts as they make their way around the Mediterranean.
We had a fabulous lunch at a harbourside restaurant where our waiter confided that Tom Hanks and his wife were on a yacht nearby and were expected to arrive for lunch imminently.
We strung out dessert as long as we possibly could, but Mr Hanks didn't put in an appearance (or perhaps he is so good at disguises that we didn't recognise him).
What was also impressive is that while the place is probably the nearest thing that Kefalonia has to a major resort, it didn't really feel like a tourist honey pot -it certainly wasn't crowded.
And, best of all perhaps, the excellent meal was very reasonably priced.
The island has only recently begun seeking to attract tourists and doesn't seem to have been alerted to the possibilities of ripping off visitors.
We took our trip to Fiskardo in the evening when the heat was tempered by a cooling breeze from the sea.
Close to our apartment were plenty of good tavernas and bars where we could enjoy a reasonably priced meal in the evening.
It may have taken Ulysses 20 years to return to Ithaca - we shall be heading back to Kefalonia much sooner than that.
