We always feel really confident and reassured when we use DialAFlight. We appreciate the last minute phone call to check we’re happy and have everything we need for our journey. We are so impressed and grateful for the individual attention we get from our ‘own’ representative, who knows our plans, has our travel history and requirements to hand and understands our needs. This personal and reliable service is, in our opinion, second to none!
Megan went above and beyond to get us the deal we wanted and to support us through our difficulties with PCR testing. We had a wonderful holiday in the fabulous Waldorf Palm Jumeriah Dubai. The half board package was brilliant.
Shane has been great as always. Helped us change the trip twice. I recommend him to all my friends….
Experience was extremely hassle free and the staff were very helpful and accommodating
Another excellent service provided by Tristan
Thanks to Marcus we finally managed a fabulous trip!

Excellent sService thank you. Will definitely recommend to friends and family

The whole experience of booking with DialAFlight was excellent from start to finish. We also felt very reassured that if there were any issues you would be there for us
Excellent service, can’t fault them.
Daniel is a legend. I can honestly say that I felt so reassured from beginning to end just knowing that if anything went wrong that Daniel would be at the end of an email to support me. It literally gave me that added confidence that I needed. He is such a professional but also has the ability to be able to add that much needed personal touch, which is why I go back to him every time the people that I know need flights.
Outstanding customer service by Bruce. I'll NEVER look elsewhere.
Fantastic service as ever - many thanks to Gino and the team
Everything went very smoothly, picked up at the airport in a Tesla 4x4 and transported to the Le Meridien Hotel where we were given the Royal Suite for our stopover. Our thanks to Bruce for his organisation skills.
Thank you Shelly - you made our dream holiday come real. Definitely see you soon.
Could not have done more. Outstanding service.
Amazing service from Wayne - thank you!
Very friendly and always helpful
Big thanks to Isaac for another great trip. I was very apprehensive about a holiday after covid but Isaac answered all my questions and put me at ease. Definitely have the travel bug again.
Very flexible as had to move holiday at least three times - they spent a lot of time planning different moves on our behalf and would like to thank Sarah for all her time and patience. Had a great holiday.
Sean has been amazing
Lee was fantastic as always!
Reid always finds the best deals and makes booking a holiday very easy. We will be booking many many more holidays with you.
Great customer service - honest and trustworthy. Never been disappointed.
Another fabulous holiday recommended by Ben at DialAFlight. I can’t recommended him enough. He listens to what you want and delivers every time. Every detail is considered which results in a first class holiday.
Dom and the team always look after me. Been using him for over 10 years.
Fantastic service, hands down the best service from any travel company
This is the city where construction never sleeps. Turn your back for a second and another skyscraper miraculously emerges from the sand, shinier and bolder than its neighbour, adding to the architectural fantasia that makes Dubai one of the most extraordinary man-made creations on Earth.
BIGGER & BETTER
Imagine if the entire planet was wiped out, leaving only dust and we had to start again. Most likely, Dubai would be it, complete with a few reminders of the old world - a Big Ben lookalike, a couple of Chrysler buildings, London's cheese grater. They're all here.
Then there's Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest structure, set to lose its crown in 2020 to The Tower in Creek Harbour a few miles away. Competing against itself is a way of life in Dubai.
A shopping mall to make Westfield look titchy? On its way. Another highway linking the financial district to the Marina? Consider it done. A new water park with scary rides? Form a queue. Fancy eating in a Jamie Oliver restaurant one night, a Gary Rhodes the next, then a Jason Atherton and even a Diego Sanchez at Lima? Take a seat.
On the subject of food, no trip to Dubai is complete without sampling the city’s infamous weekend brunch spots. Like Dubai’s skyline, brunch offerings keep getting bigger and better every week with each venue offering their own unique twist on what has become the biggest weekly social events in the Dubai calendar. One of the most popular spots is Bubbalicious at The Westin Dubai which offers incredible spread with free flowing bubbly at AED 680 (approx £145 pp).
The first high rise was built in Dubai in 1979 and it shows no sign of letting up.
Streets are clean, public transport is efficient and crime virtually absent (I like the story of the taxi driver who found a £780,000 gold watch in his cab and handed it in). What's more, sunshine is pretty much guaranteed all year round.
How it all works is the unfathomable question that merely adds to the intrigue.
New players are arriving all the time. The Versace Palace hotel (1.5 million tiles on its mosaic floor) has opened near the airport; the Armani hotel occupies pride of place at the foot of the Burj Khalifa; the futuristic FIVE (spa on the roof, swimming pool practically in the lobby) is on a beach on the Palm Jumeirah, and now our very own Dukes Hotel (founded a century ago in London's St James's) has opened a 500-room branch on the trunk of The Palm.
PLACES TO BE SEEN
St James's to Dubai sounds farcical but it works brilliantly, right down to the martinis in Duke's Bar, the private beach, the hand-picked staff from the likes of Claridge's and Mandarin Oriental, and the first international franchise of Mumbai's famous Khyber restaurant.
Khyber is on the 15th floor just above the 'floating swimming pool' on the skybridge that connects the hotel's twin towers, high above the lavish lobby, where bemused members of the British aristocracy stare out from portraits on the walls.
It's worth hiring a guide and driver for a whistle-stop tour of the city. Ours was a German married to a Mauritian, who, like so many expats, wasn't quite sure how she ended up in a city where it rains only about eight or nine times a year.
She took us to the spice market where we bought stuff we will never use, and to the gold market where we would have liked to have bought lots of stuff.
We took an Abra boat taxi over the creek, had our photograph taken with a Bedouin and popped into the Dubai Museum, which gave us a crash course on the city's history.
Dune-bashing followed by quad biking, camel-riding and a barbecue in the desert - with belly dancers providing the after-dinner entertainment - is almost obligatory.
At one point, we asked if we could take a walk in the red sand and trekked almost a kilometre. When we turned round, our tracks already had been erased - just as they are in those scary survival movies.
The temperature in the desert reaches 120f in summer - at least it does for now. Presumably, the powers that be will install some form of air-conditioning in the future. Anything seems to be possible here.
