Your calls always answered within 5 rings.
Thank you Bella for all your efforts and putting up with me!
Leo Thompson Persaud and his team are fabulous, definitely go the extra mile. I always try to book through DialAFlight. Trustworthy and efficient
A flawless trip once again, so thanks to Dominic for all his help - and to his colleagues when he wasn't there. Hopefully I'll be in touch again soon to start organising the next trip.
Accommodation in Wellington was not satisfactory. No hotel facilities and in noisy part of city
We had business flights to and from Australia but domestic within Australia. We were allowed two items of hold luggage in the business flights although the e-tickets specified one each of 40 kgs. The domestic flights restricted us to one piece of hold luggage each. It would have been good if we had known the luggage restrictions.
Very helpful, knowledgeable staff. App easy to use. Always answered the phone
I was hesitant flying with Royal Brunei but Michelle was right, the service was excellent!
As usual DialAFlight and Bruce in particular gave a brilliant service for which we thank you very much
All good. We flew Emirates this time. We preferred Qatar from previous.
Fabulous, professional, responsive - excellent service
Once again my journey from Aberdeen to Melbourne (via London) went smoothly and I received the assistance I required.
Good service, flight times, suggestions and price. Will use again.
Use you guys all the time - the best!
Very happy with the service provided by your company. So pleased that the worry of making flight bookings was in your safe hands.
Perfect trip thank you
The app is a great tool for multiple flights. Checking in via the app made the whole process easy and stress free. Hotel provided was ideally located for me to access the Sydney bar area activities and bars/restaurants. Great job by Joey.
Rob has always looked after us. Wouldn’t book with anyone else
All worked well and transfers never let us down. Bintan, being in Indonesia, caused a small issue with additional unexpected payment required for visa. No cards accepted! Worth mentioning to other travellers...be prepared!
Everything went according to plan. Very much liked that we could pay for our 'big trip' in instalments.
Thanks to Harry Clark for always getting us the best deals and making adjustments when we decided to extend our trip to Australia. Very helpful and patient which we appreciate
From my first phone call to DialAFlight through to embarking on my holiday I felt complete support. I experienced no issues whatsoever and would highly recommend this business. They provide a personal and complete service. Well done and thankyou
Just perfect. Thank you
Amelia was very helpful and efficient.
Excellent service. We are looking to book again for October 2025
It was great to have a helping hand with the booking of a long distance flight, a stopover and return trip. We haven't flown to Australia for over 20 years and the options seemed endless, so having someone to simplify and explain everything was brilliant. The process didn't seem to take very long and I liked the fact that DialAFlight sent reminders when necessary, but didn't bombard me with irrelevant information.
Very good service, but a bit expensive!
Brilliant service, very helpful, listened to our requirements, no problems whatsoever. Thank you so much.
Great service. Charlie was so helpful all the way through
An excellent service provided from beginning to end. Molly was always at the end of the phone whenever I had any queries and if she was not available another member of the team was there to step in. A lovely gesture having a call from Molly a few days prior to my flight asking if everything was okay and wishing me a happy holiday.
Our second trip to Australia booked through you and everything worked well. We have recommended you to friends and will continue to book though you.
An earthly paradise was how boatswain Thomas Jones described the Seychelles when, in 1609, the British merchant ship Ascension was separated from its fleet by a storm and dropped anchor in Mahé.
And ship's agent John Jourdain, who was sent out by the East India Company, wrote in the first known description of the islands: 'It is a very good refreshing place for wood, water, coker nuts, fish and fowle, without any fear or danger ...'
Some 400 years later, the same can still be said. It boasts some of the world's best beaches and most diverse wildlife.
The hotels are wonderful, but these islands never forget that the top selling point is still the fresh, natural splendour that first caught Thomas Jones's eye
It is all about the destination here, says Edouard Grosmangin - even though, as manager of the new Six Senses Zil Pasyon resort, he is justly proud of his hotel.
This ethos of cherishing nature is echoed everywhere on the heavily-forested Félicité Island, where Six Senses opened recently. Its 30 villas slope towards the blue ocean, perfectly poised to catch the sunrise.
The beaches have just a few hammocks swinging lazily in the breeze - and of course, perhaps a hawksbill turtle or two coming to lay their eggs.
The hotel doesn't compete with nature, rather it allows you to stare at the ripe mangoes and emerald green lizards from your bathtub or bed.
There are no room service charges (try the coconut pancakes with lime syrup and mango compote at breakfast). It is also within easy reach of other islands, which you can explore.
Twenty minutes away is Praslin, the second largest island in the archipelago, where the Unesco World Heritage Site of Vallée de Mai was mistaken for the Garden of Eden by British General Charles Gordon in 1881. He thought the suggestive seed of the Coco de Mer palm, the largest seed in the world, must be the forbidden fruit.
Praslin is also famed for its soft white sand. Anse Lazio, on the island's north edge, is considered by many to be the best beach in world.
Admire it from a seat at restaurant Bonbon Plume, where under thatched umbrellas you can eat octopus curry.
A MINI CYLCE TOUR
On another day, we bicycled around La Digue, a slow-paced island opposite Félicité, where not long ago the only mode of transport was ox cart.
We passed vanilla plantations and takamaka trees (also the name of the local rum) and swam off the beach of Anse Source d'Argent. The water is translucent and two dogs chased large fish in the shallows. Needless to say, this quarry is too nimble for their clumsy paws. Along the shoreline, giant granite boulders add structural beauty.
You can kayak across the ocean to the Île Cocos, part of the Marine National Park, where snorkelling reveals powder blue surgeonfish, Moorish idols, parrotfish and the striking oriental sweetlips, with black and yellow stripes and dots that could grace a catwalk.
Other islands in the archipelago include North Island, where William and Kate honeymooned, and Frégate, the luxury eco-resort where celebrities arrive by helicopter.
There are plenty of fish to be spotted on the corals around Félicité, but it's also worth heading inland to see the trees.
TAKING CARE OF WILDLIFE
South African Steve Hill, the resident permaculturist, who eradicated rats and introduced tortoises to the island, has been here for nearly nine years.
He has supervised the removal, across hundreds of acres, of the coco plum, which strangled many native species. In its place he planted indigenous trees and shrubs to encourage birds such as the Seychelles white-eye and fody. As we walk around avocado and mango trees, stop under the shade of the takamaka — and look at the fruit of the bigarade — Steve gives his vision for the island's future.
Commitment to preservation comes from the top, and is on the school curriculum. Steve believes Félicité can be the Seychelles' bio-diversity hotspot. Here, nature is the star of the show.
