Had a fantastic holiday and would definitely use again. Excellent service from Olivia Holt from the initial booking to the call before we started our holiday
The service was top notch help when need. Prompted about things that needed to be done. Out of hours service is a help in a pinch. Start to finish A1 service
Once again Sally excelled in helping us make the right choice. She is one in a million, thank you.
Specify exactly if there is shuttle to the airport and the baggage allowance
Too many times airlines change flight times which happened twice to us. More pressure should be put on airlines to financially compensate for this. I can't fault DialAFlight.
Aidan was amazing, as always! Helped out a lot especially as we had to cancel due to covid twice and transfer credit but we just got back from our honeymoon trip in Mauritius and it was the BEST holiday of our lives! We enjoyed it sooooo much and cannot wait to go back!
My only negative is the return transfer was booked way too late and we would have missed our flight had we had to wait in the normal check in. Fortunately one of the transfer team at the airport moved us to priority check in to push us through quicker. Everything else was perfect
Excellent holiday - resort was excellent but we had a 24 hour delay at Gatwick with British Arways and had to find last minute hotel accommodation. Not a good start.
Everything was sorted and worked like clockwork. We had the best honeymoon and didn’t have to arrange a thing.
John and his team were super helpful finding the right flights for us working with our budget.Timely updates and friendly reminders before travel so no issues and will gladly contact them again for our next family holiday
Doug was extremely helpful in rearranging the flights when Qatar Airways significantly altered the timings of my flights.
Orlando was a star as always. From the original enquiry to just before we departed he kept in contact and made us feel that we were always in his mind. Great service from a very helpful employee
Fabulous holiday with room we wanted. Thanks as ever, Kylie. We had a great time. Not being a whizz on the computer, we found the Maldivian health online form a bit of a challenge. It worked much better on our phone, in the end.
Mark was very professional and gave us all the information that we needed for a successful and stress free trip
Our flight to Mauritius was great, however the return flight was really disappointing. We asked for the baby bassinet and we were informed that our baby was too big, although he went in it on the way. So it seems pointless having those seats, as you need to hold the baby throughout the flight. We also asked for the baby meal, which was included in the ticket, and told he needs to be 2 years old to get it.
Jordan's knowledge of the hotel definitely helped to improve our stay. Got us upgraded to better rooms and booked into the happy hour. Perfect!
Very good service all round but it would have been really beneficial to have had our passenger ticket numbers earlier than the day of departure. This would have enabled us to check in online 24 hours before departure rather than on the day itself
Great personal service, answering all our questions and keeping us informed at all times, and providing all documentation early on in the booking.
Service was brilliant. Always updated when needed and contact with Niall was always quick and easy if we had any queries. Would definitely recommend and we will be using again to book our holidays
Amelia is excellent, always willing to help!
We had an amazing holiday in Mauritius. Thanks to Karl for his recommendations and sorting it out for us. We will definitely be using DialAFlight in future
Had a great holiday, thank you for an amazing time
Not overly impressed with BA Premium Economy.
Ryan always very helpful
No problems at all - went really ell.
Excellent customer service from knowledgeable and professional agents
Great customer service
Bradley always provides a smooth, faultless service and this was no different. Quick to respond to any queries and full of helpful advice. Had a brilliant time. Could never use anyone else!
Arthur is the dream maker of DialAFlight
Yet another well organised holiday. Over 15 trips with DialAFlight and they never fail to deliver .
The Maldives gives me the most extraordinary sensation, it is so beautiful - I feel that when I look down I see Paradise, and when I look up I see Heaven.
It comprises more than 1,200 tiny islands - the majority of them are uninhabited but about ten per cent are used by the tourism industry.
For my latest trip, I stayed with my husband Alex at Mirihi, which boasts palm-fringed beaches and sand that is as soft as talcum powder. You won't need your shoes from the moment you step off the seaplane and on to the jetty after your 30-minute transfer from the capital Male.
At just 1,200ft long and 160ft wide, this privately-owned island is one of the lesser known to UK holidaymakers. It is like living on your own private island - classy yet understated and not at all stuffy.
It's the perfect place for anyone looking for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation, or those who want to try some of the best diving in the world. If you are a foodie, you won't be disappointed either.
The 160 members of staff look impeccable in their brightly-coloured uniforms and are a credit to Guenther Kofler, the resort's manager.
Guenther and his right-hand woman Jasmin are the perfect hosts for such an intimate place. Every inch of the resort is pristine and the staff so attentive that you feel every bit as relaxed as one of the petals of the flower Mirihi is named after.
The accommodation is Maldivian with a Swiss twist - luxurious bathrooms, designer furnishings, a sitting area with a sound system, and a Nespresso coffee machine with complimentary pods each day.
There are a total of 37 palm-thatched villas - six on the beach come with outdoor bathrooms, and 30 water villas that have steps straight into the lagoon. Staff outnumber guests by two to one.
As you relax on your sunbed watching the crystal-clear waters ripple against the shore, you can expect to meet Shahula and Sithura each day. They will offer you a cold towel and a slice of thirst-quenching watermelon.
The food is outstanding, from the a la carte menu in Muraka or the buffet in Dhonveli. You can help yourself to fresh lobster or oysters on seafood night, or head for the incredible display of sushi on Asian night. The food looks almost too good to eat.
Felix, the head chef, is one the most passionate people I have ever met, and he is proud to give guests a tour of Dhonveli restaurant each evening to show off his creations.
I did visit the island's gym three times but I'm sure I returned to the UK carrying a few extra pounds. I think I took comfort from Felix's words of wisdom. 'Laura, you are on holiday,' he told me. 'It's fine!'
Although relaxation at Mirihi is key, should you wish to participate in any excursions or activities, the team are happy to book them on your behalf. We took a half-day trip to watch whale sharks, and we also got to swim with dolphins, manta rays and turtles. An unforgettable experience.
We enjoyed wine-tasting with Alexander, who is not officially the island's sommelier but might as well have been. There is the option of rum-tasting, too - Mirihi has the biggest collection in the Maldives, with 130 varieties - but I was happy to stick with the wine, otherwise I think I would have been out cold for the rest of our stay.
What you won't find on Mirihi is a swimming pool, but why would you need one when you have a clear-water lagoon less than 15ft from your bedroom?
The resort had the option of building a pool when the site was renovated in 2014, but opted against it as the thought of individuals fighting for sunbeds was not in their remit. Having visited islands with and without a pool, I think they made the right decision. We didn't miss having one.
However, one thing I can't live without when I'm on holiday is a spa, and the therapists at the Duniye Spa on the island are some of the best. Needless to say, I visited frequently.
Throughout the day at Mirihi, you can use the complimentary kayaks, try your hand at windsurfing or snorkel in the reef to spot the spectacularly coloured fish.
I was happy to kick back, relax and enjoy a caipirinha while watching the sunset in the bar at Muraka, and sit and read my book - I certainly made the most of the amazingly relaxing atmosphere before boarding my flight home to work and reality.
