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.

The Portuguese have a specific word to describe a nostalgic longing for a place, 'saudade', and after visiting Lisbon it’s easy to see why.
It's conveniently close to the UK, it's in the same time zone - and is a hotbed of cutting edge culture and nightlife, exciting architecture, music events and super cuisine including a thriving pop-up restaurant scene.
Music festivals, headed by Nos Alive in July, rival Glastonbury and Reading.
At Nos Alive, one arena is dedicated to Fado, the melancholy music that originated in Lisbon in the 1820s and is making a big comeback. The festival shows how high Lisbon sits on the 'cool' scale, with a huge buzz in the city’s arts and design sectors.
Lisbon has helped fund many free music and arts events in troubled neighbourhoods to bring investment to the areas and the city is reaping the rewards.
A prime example of the success of this policy is an inner-city area called Mouraria, which used to be the old red light district but is now one of the city's trendiest locations and a magnet for visitors.
It has some of the most beautiful tiled buildings in Lisbon and is one of the top foodie hangouts.
WHERE TO GO
For global cuisine, head to the food market in Martim Moniz Square, or ask the advice of locals about many of the little-known restaurants - some in seemingly private kitchens.
There are also plenty of pop-up events run by Elisa Sartor and Valentina Toscano of Mani In Pasta, who also introduced us to the famous Portuguese custard tart.
The original tarts can be found at the Pastéis de Belém in the Belém area, but for an equally delicious treat in a more central location, try the Confeitaria Nacional shop at Praça da Figueira, which was built in 1829 and still contains its original interior. The pastries are a breakfast delicacy - copy the locals by sprinkling the tart with cinnamon or icing sugar.
From Praça da Figueira, a short Metro ride takes you to a jewel in the Lisbon crown - the indoor Time Out Food Market, which houses artisan food and drink stalls run by some of the biggest bars and restaurants in the city.
Visitors can choose from a number of culinary delights, including steak, sushi, dim sum, local cheese and charcuterie. I opted for a salmon, cuttlefish, tomato and seaweed burger in a cuttlefish ink bun that was absolutely delicious.
There are plenty of places for a more upmarket meal too, including the Bica Do Sapato restaurant, co-owned by Holly-wood A-Listers Catherine Deneuve and John Malkovich, and the hotel Tivoli, which features the Brasserie Flo, a grand 1920s-style dining room serving French food.
I indulged in some local oysters, followed by the most delectable prawn and asparagus risotto I have ever eaten and a salted cod with chorizo crumble.
Upstairs at the Terraço restaurant, diners get one of the best views of Lisbon. Later, we enjoyed a drink at the Sky Bar, a terrace with panoramic views.
Thanks to its hilly nature, Lisbon is famous for its terraces and visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to verandas with a view that serve food.
People looking for a more modern and relaxed vibe should head to the Memmo Alfama though, a boutique hotel in the Alfama area that is built into the medieval walls of the city. Just a stone’s throw from the hotel is the Clube do Fado in Alfama, widely considered to be the best bar to hear Fado music.
The quaint streets of the historic Barrio Alto area come alive at night, with traditional and modern restaurants, Fado houses and lively bars staying open well into the night.
Lisbon is well-known for its extremely photogenic tiled facades. In some neighbourhoods almost every home is covered in the ceramics, splashing entire streets with rainbow colours.
Nowhere is this more evident than at Pestana Palace, a five-star hotel in a restored 19th century palace with views over the Tagus. The grand reception rooms boast fresco ceilings and decorative furniture.
On top of all this there are beaches less than an hour away from the centre and guaranteed good weather – the city with everything.
