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.

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

Immediately after winning the Great British Bake Off, I escaped to the delightful Greek island of Kefalonia to kick back after such a hectic time in the tent.
I can still remember that moment in 2016 when I was floating around in the pool and my triumph finally sank in: 'I've won Bake Off!' I said to myself. It was truly wonderful.
TIME FOR A BREAK
My partner Ian and I recently returned to Greece, this time staying at the Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort in Halkidiki. The resort sits at the heart of a large beachside park facing the Aegean, and our first impressions were very good.
Inside, things got even better. The smartly designed rooms all had balconies or patios with sofas, there was free wi-fi, flatscreen TVs, and tea and coffee-makers (amazingly these days there are still some 'posh' hotels that think that offering coffee-makers is somehow naff).
As someone who has a professional interest in cooking these days, I was delighted to discover that the Miraggio has four smart restaurants (and six bars).
One of the hotel's key attractions is its luxury spa that features hot spring water: there are also outdoor pools and a very good gym.
When you're in a resort as good as the Miraggio, it is so easy to stay put. We had a suite with a private pool and it was just what we needed relaxation-wise. We did lots of carefree chilling out and I have to admit not very much sightseeing! In fact, I'm afraid we left the resort just once for an evening in Paliouri, a gorgeous fishing village located on Kassandra, one of the three fingers of land that stick out from the peninsula.
During a lovely stroll around the village, I just had to check out the competition from the local bakers. I couldn't resist the baklava - rich, sweet dessert pastries made with layers of filo, filled with chopped nuts and held together with honey. They were wonderful and I made a mental note to try making them myself.
BEST THINGS TO DO
If you do want to be busy (as you might have guessed, busy was not on our agenda on this trip!), there are organised activities during the day: everything from archery to zumba, and beach volleyball to water-polo. The organised fun continued after dark thanks to the in-house entertainments team putting on their versions of musicals including Grease.
We did feel a bit guilty not making more effort to get out and see the sights, because Halkidiki is full of history and has some fascinating archaeological sites.
It is a peninsula extending into the Aegean Sea in the far north-west of Greece. Settlers first came here in any large numbers in the eighth century BC and founded cities such as Mende, Toroni and Scione. The city of Stageira, on the east coast of the peninsula, was the birthplace of the philosopher Aristotle - his teachings are said to have influenced every possible branch of knowledge.
MORE THAN JUST AN ADVENTURE
But confusingly we found we weren't sure exactly where we were, as no one can agree on exactly what the peninsula is called - Chalcidice, Chalkidike, Chalkidiki or Halkidiki, depen-ding on who you talk to.
We decided to stick to Halkidiki. Over the centuries Halkidiki has been part of the Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman Empire - and was finally incorporated into the kingdom of Greece, as it was then, in 1912 after the Balkan Wars.
There are many intriguing ancient archaeological sites all over Halkidiki, including excavations that revealed stone houses with one or two rooms built by communities in Neolithic times. Many incredible artefacts are on display at the Archaelogical Museum of Olynthos.
In some places on the peninsula, lush green forests reach down to some excellent sandy beaches - and there are some exhilarating mountainous parts too, with slopes covered in pine, oak, fir and chestnut.
There is plainly plenty for me to justify a return visit! But I have also promised myself something else for that trip. I would love to go back to the Miraggio and do a baking demo. Maybe my version of the Parthenon (although not a Kefalonia icon) made out of nougat would be a good showstopper!
