Josh was extremely efficient and helpful especially because we were stranded out of the UK because of the Covid-19. Josh arranged new flights and was contactable 7 days a week.
During a difficult time abroad with the development of the Coronavirus, your assistance and reassurance was greatly appreciated.
Excellent help, quick with flights - and they have been amazing considering what the country is going through
Thanks Troy for getting us home. We will always come to you for our travel needs
Fabulous trip, everything went like clockwork as usual from Neil and his team
Eric was outstanding
A big thank you to Michelle
Great service and help from Barry. Nothing was a bother and he sorted everything we needed. Great service
Another great holiday organised by Ted Millerick. I enjoy being greeted at varying locations for transfers etc. Often when tired from travelling it’s great to have that continuity. The recommended hotel in the Maldives was great. My daughter has now booked her 3 week honeymoon through Ted and I will be using you again in the future. Thanks for a well organised holiday.
Would definitely book with DialAFlight again. Big thanks to Chris Coulter.
Always use Christian at DialAFlight. Amazing holiday
Just back from paradise. Thank you Manny and DialAFlight
The best holiday we have had - well organised and just what we wanted
Excellent service from Darren
Mark delivers well, as always.
In terms of ease of booking and transfers being seamless DialAFlight were great. The only issue we had was that the resort became very heavily populated with children half way through our stay. This was a honeymoon and at times the resort felt like a creche. It might be better to give a bit more information to the client as to the type or resort it is likely to be. Apart from this the holiday was lovely
Stuart got everything correct for us as always.
BA flight check-in is awful but you're great
Leah is incredible. So patient with us while we are trying to find our perfect destination and then always happy to answer my ongoing questions!
Amazing trip to the Maldives organised by Stacey. Thank you again for such an incredible holiday. You’re the best!
Scott answered all questions and made sure I had all documents and no final questions which was added reassurance of your commitment to customer service. Resort excellent and all travel arrangements went smoothly. Mny of my family and friends have been recommended to you so please keep it up.
Scott is always helpful and knowledgeable about destination and makes the whole process less stressful.
Had a lovely time - perfectly organised
Rupert advised us perfectly - the holiday was amazing!
10/10 for Dexter once again. Absolute pleasure to deal with and it goes without saying I’ll be contacting him again without hesitation to plan my next trip.
Great to have someone on the end of the line for reassurance if needed. They come back to you when they say they will.
All went to plan travelwise
Nicole is one amazing lady, have dealt with her for many years
All your staff are very helpful and friendly
Michelle came recommended to me by a work friend. We wanted something special as it was our honeymoon and she really helped us find the holiday of our dreams. Once we had agreed on the package, Michelle arranged everything. The process was so slick and straightforward I have already passed her details on to friends
My first family break was in 1978 to Burgh Island, the Art Deco hotel in Devon that inspired Agatha Christie to write And Then There Were None. For me, however, the place's major delight was not its murder-mystery connections but the brilliant sea tractor ride from Bigbury-on-Sea.
I spent endless sunny days hunting spider crabs, and then eating hot crumpets at 4pm. It was the best time of my life. Granted, it was the only holiday of my life at that stage, but I can remember it as clearly as yesterday, and what are great holidays but memories glued like fading polaroids to the albums of our minds?
It was a question I asked myself again as I waved goodbye to Martin Cody, manager of the Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru in the Maldives. The ingredients of a brilliant break are well-documented - good weather, impressive accommodation, wonderful food - yet the end product is less clear-cut.
I've stayed in some of the finest hotels in Dubai and yet have no memory of them whatsoever. However, I'll never forget the weekend in a crumbling two-star hotel in Bangkok en route to my first bar job in Koh Samui - but that's another story.
Manager Martin told me that there are never too many guests on Landaa Giraavaru. My guess is that is because few can pronounce it, let alone spell it. But once you have overcome this potential pitfall, I can promise that you won't be disappointed - nor should you be with rooms costing up to £30,000 a night.
The Maldives are going through a period of one-upmanship in an effort to attract suitors from Russia and the Middle East. Essentially, this means building villas the size of leisure centres. While this has little impact on us mere mortals, it does make for some interesting gossip around the pool.
The resort is situated just 30 minutes north of Male and reached by seaplane. As you can imagine, this caused much excitement among my two young boys - Sid, five, and four-year-old Kit.
It's quite large by Maldivian standards, measuring 44 acres, and Sri Lankan-based architect Geoff Bawa has done a clever job of blending understated luxury with complete privacy. The 102 thatched bungalows and villas are located on the beach, over the lagoon or within the lush gardens.
The spa and Ayurvedic retreat was a big hit with my wife Sophie. Here our Ayurvedic physician suggested a chakra blessing, which at one stage involved sitting on a terracotta chimney pot as he lit incense beneath us. With our chakras suitably blessed, it was time to visit the Marine Discovery Centre.
The centre is in the nearby Baa Atoll and was recently awarded Unesco World Biosphere status. This means you can enjoy the company of manta rays and whale sharks at the atoll's Hanifaru Bay. Sign up for the Manta-On-Call programme and you'll even receive a text to invite you to swim with giant mantas when the beasts make an appearance.
For the less adventurous, you could always spend some time with Elisa the turtle. According to the WWF, six of the world's seven species of sea turtles are endangered because of the human consumption of their eggs and the effects of rising ocean temperatures. Elisa is fitted with a GPS device, which helps track her movements on the atoll. Such a device was not something I needed in the Maldives - the most energetic thing I did most days was to decide where to eat.
Any Four Seasoned traveller knows that the dining experience is a priority, and Landaa doesn't disappoint. Our favourite was Blu, an Italian bar/restaurant with a view over a narrowing strip of beach which disappeared where the sea meets the sky. While the boys raced crabs, mum and dad sank watermelon cocktails.
During the day, the boys often went to the Kuda Velaa kids' club and were kept occupied with a programme that included craft sessions and making ice cream. If it's tranquillity you're after, lazing by the pool and being interrupted occasionally by a spot of pampering in the spa, Landaa hits the spot.
If, however, you fancy something a little more active, there's plenty to get you off your lounger - from motorised underwater scooters to yacht parties, arranging a private picnic on your own private island, or being serenaded under the stars by a local choir.
In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find a hotel that offers a better definition of the perfect holiday - and that includes Burgh Island.
