Excellent as always.
Yet again Dennis and his team have been excellent in sorting everything out for us including a last minute special meal booking for the flight.
The arrangements for the flight and hotel transfer and stay were excellent. We liked the personal care you gave us.
Fantastic experience booking our honeymoon. Dylan was very helpful and helped us to book the perfect holiday. Everything went smoothly and we will definitely be using DialAflight again
Staff listen to customer needs and wants, excellent service. I've booked many times and never been disappointed
Excellent service. Used the currency converter on the DialAFlight app all the time!
Thank you for the usual highest quality service
Jenson always goes above and beyond. We followed his recommendation and were not disappointed. The Maldives were amazing, the island and accommodation beautiful. Thank you, we will be in touch soon to book our next adventure
Isla was absolutely amazing help and the holiday was perfect
Darryll brilliant as always
I spoke with Sarah Hole regarding my honeymoon in December - we had to make changes several times. She was easy to get hold of, very flexible and patient. We had a fantastic honeymoon and found all our dealings with DialAFlight easy and professional.
Alway great service from Marshall Finnimore
DialAFlight staff are very competent. Will do business again and will recommend your services to others

We can't thank you guys enough (John Huff, take a bow!) for everything. Your organisation and overall professionalism was second to none. If I could give 6 stars I would.
Reece is always so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.
Well done Ralph. 5 Stars
As always Peter Smith was fantastic .. with initial quote/service and follow up making sure our long awaited trip was seamless
There were worries and difficulties arranging and booking tee times. When speaking with a different DialAFlight person I was told this was not something DialAFlight normally did, which was disappointing to hear. This is the second year in a row we have used DialAFlight. In general everything worked out well, but there are times that it got a bit stressful. I would consider using DialAFlight again, but not necessarily as my first choice.
Everything went to plan including the transfers. The hotel room was superb and I would also definitely recommend the hotel. Here's to the next holiday!
Always a great service with every detail covered. DialAFlight is our first choice
We always enjoy working with Tristan. He is friendly and very knowledgeable about flights!
Really pleased with the help and support I had from Rudi from initial booking through to contact before travel - always responded quickly as promised which is rare these days.
Had a fantastic holiday, thanks very much Gavin. Everything went very smoothly and the hotel you chose was excellent. All the people who helped us were also brilliant especially the taxi firm you organised in Mauritius - we went on three additional trips with them.
Another exceptional experience with the team - thank you so much. Absolutely brilliant
Going back to a place you have really enjoyed can be a bit of a risk. Can you recreate those happy memories?
We went to the Maldives four years ago and loved it. This time we returned over Christmas.
This was my first 'hot' Christmas. My wife Storm is from Australia, so when she was growing up, December 25 was a day spent on the beach or playing cricket on the lawn.
I, meanwhile, grew up in Ireland, so I'm used to wet, cold and damp days. If we were really lucky, we had snow.
FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
As we were taking four children - my three older ones, Jack, 18, Missy, 16, and Ali, 12, and our baby Cooper, who was born last April - I was a little anxious. How would a non-traditional Christmas in the sun appeal to them? But from the moment we arrived at Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas, they loved it. We were delighted to discover we even had a Christmas tree in our room - with gifts underneath.
It was the children's first trip to the Maldives, and the journey is a thrill in itself. After arriving in the capital Male, we took the seaplane for the half-hour flight to Kihavah Huravalhi. We flew over glorious desert islands before landing on a beautiful turquoise lagoon.
As we stepped on to pristine white sand, the staff were waiting, singing welcome songs, clapping and beating drums - it was magical. Garlands were hung around our necks and we were handed glasses of fruit punch. We suddenly felt very cosseted.
Next came the excitement of being taken to our villa - an over-water one which was fantastic. In the bathroom there was a glass floor, which made for an interesting, if slightly unnerving, experience.
On the way to the villa we could see uninhabited islands surrounded by reefs which we were told are home to turtles, eels and beautiful coral formations. Anantara forms part of the Baa Atoll, with baby sharks, stingrays and every fish you can imagine. It meant the snorkelling was exceptional.
We needn't have worried about the children having a good time - the staff worked tirelessly to make certain everyone was happy.
LIKE A DREAM
The food was phenomenal, the service extraordinary, the weather brilliant, the sea perfect. We were floating on air.
And any anxieties about Christmas were swept away when Father Christmas arrived on a banana-boat!
At Anantara they take dining to new levels. At Sea, an underwater restaurant, you dine inside a tank and the fish are outside looking in at you.
One of its attractions is the world's first underwater wine cellar. Wine with depth, you might say. But when we were in Sea, we couldn't bring ourselves to order the fish - in the circumstances it seemed wrong!
We liked Fire, a Japanese teppanyaki restaurant, while Salt, an Asian fusion restaurant, was also superb. All the children loved the food. The new Sky Bar, with its own DJ, was a very cool place and it features an observatory. We could have sat there all night looking through the telescope at the stars.
The children were never bored. There was something going on all the time and lots of other children were there, so they were never short of people to hook up with for a game of beach volleyball, for example.
One day we all went on a boat trip which allowed us to snorkel out on the reef - we were right among the turtles.
In the evenings, we loved the open-air cinema, watching movies under the stars.
The resort also had a good kids' club - Ali had a brilliant time making sushi.
In the evenings, there was a pool party with a DJ, and on New Year's Eve there was a band and fireworks. Did I succumb to the temptation of performing on New Year's Eve? Of course I did - I can't help myself. I sang my hit When You Say Nothing At All, which seemed to go down well.
When I was growing up in Ireland, we never left the country - Killarney was as good as it got for me. Every summer, we'd go for a couple of weeks to a guesthouse. We had a great time -but it's still quite a leap from Killarney to the Maldives!
