We’ve “shopped” with you for years and never doubted your professionalism, commitment to your customers and your very competitive prices. However, when we recently had to abort our travelling and get home, from the USA, you came into your own. Sean was wonderful and got us new flights in minutes. It made a very stressful time much more bearable and manageable. This was whilst a friend was simultaneously trying to get information and change her flights with on online provider. She was on the phone for 5 hours!
Excellent service - Scott was very helpful. He went the extra mile to make sure that we were able to get home in these very uncertain times and followed up with a call just to make sure that everything had been good
Always so helpful
Cannot rate you highly enough. Got us home from USA with minimum fuss in these troubled times. Will tell all far and wide how good you are.
Zayne again bent over backwards to help in these uncertain times. He made everything easy and put us at ease. We would not deal with anyone else
Can’t praise DialAFlight enough. Adrian was able to help us to return to England from the USA by working on our behalf to get us an earlier flight home. We are so grateful for his help
Your advice and help were spot on. Jay is a star. Home safe and delighted we chose to book flights through you,
After finding out twice that our flights were cancelled and offered a flight home by Delta and an unsuitable alternative we contacted your emergency department. They could not have been more helpful in sorting out an alternative flight. I would like to thank all your staff especially Rory who we have contacted for all our travel arrangements for the last three years.
We had to change our flight back home because of the covid19 situation. I phoned the emergency number and a very nice young man named Shane sorted out our change of flights. So glad I booked with DialAFlight.
As always Manny goes above and beyond. With my daughter's flight being cancelled Manny actually called me the same evening to rebook an alternative flight. Simply the best!
Acted quickly to get us home from USA during corona crisis. AA changed the flight you booked twice and rerouted us through JFK but at least we were on the list. Thank you Cooper and Stafford
Excellent service in a difficult situation returning from the States early because of CV. Again DialAFlight have ‘come up trumps’.
Thanks Chris for getting me home safely. Hope you and your staff keep well. Hopefully booking again once madness dies down.
I had to get back from USA early as they cancelled my flights. Leah was exceptional and got me sorted out and reassured me despite her being ill herself. What an asset to your Company. I have told all my family and friends how great you are. My American friends were amazed how accessible Leah was and how quickly issues were sorted out. Fantastic!
Support was second to none
Reid and his team are marvellous
As usual DialAFlight have been excellent. Due to the Covid 19, our return flight from Tampa was cancelled and BA referred us to you. Thank goodness they did as Nick was absolutely outstanding in getting us on connecting flights from Tampa to Miami and then on to Heathrow. Absolutely first class customer care and when the crisis is over we will use nobody but yourselves for future trips.
Your service is fantastic and I have recommended you to many friends. Quick, efficient and friendly. I don't know why anyone trawls the internet themselves when you do such a better job of it.
Excellent staff and that’s why I keep using DialAFlight. I just give them my dates and location and they take care of it all.
Philippa couldn't have done more to get us back from New York. Our flight was cancelled and she advised us it was better to get home as soon as possible as flights were being cancelled. She rearranged our flights very quickly and was reassuring. Couldn't fault what she did for us.
You arranged my flight home from San Diego when the original one was cancelled. All went smoothly. My thanks to all concerned .
Teddy is a star. We had many difficulties whilst in US for a cruise/trip. These were dealt with calmly and sensibly.
Stephen worked as quickly as possible to change my and my daughter's flights and hotel bookings as the Corona virus situation on both sides of the Atlantic got worse. He was most helpful and understanding
Saf is an amazing travel agent. He goes the extra mile to always help me with any queries that I may have.
Great service in unprecedented times. As soon as Samuel was given the go ahead by the airline, he had us booked on flights home very quickly.
In spite of the circumstances Samuel did everything he could to get us home having had our first flight he rearranged cancelled just hours after we had booked. Hopefully he will be able to bring the rest of our party home. He is a credit to your company.
Great prices, excellent support, great App for the mobile and professional back up from Roy
Joseph, as usual,you were very efficient. Many thanks.
Always able to rely on you to rearrange flights when travel plans are disrupted.
Great service in difficult times
Sitting on San Francisco's famous Pier 39, sauce-stained children slurp huge bowls of clam chowder. In the background, Alcatraz's forbidding, mist-shrouded silhouette rises from the ocean.
The nearby gift shop is doing a roaring trade, churning out striped underpants and replica prison-issue toiletries bearing the tag line, 'don't drop the soap', all to a soundtrack of the pier's famous blubbery, barking sea lions.
WHERE TO FIRST
But the waterfront – with its many fresh crab restaurants – will soon look very different. The green-fingered team behind New York's urban High Line has now turned its attention to the Presidio – a beautiful, sprawling park overlooking the bay.
The tunnels burrowing through it will soon form the base of a spectacular, 14-acre park known as Tunnel Tops. When it opens in 2019, there will be beautiful views of the bay and meadows filled with fragrant wildflowers.
During 1967's Summer of Love, pier workers fought their way through crowds of garland-waving hippies who gathered here to shout about the Vietnam War.
THEN AND NOW
Now, more than 50 years on, hipsters have replaced hippies in Haight-Ashbury. A handful of psychedelic shops filled with tie-dye are squeezed between boutiques and organic cafes.
The closest encounter I have with a possible hippy is when I crouch down to take a picture of an enormous rainbow-themed piece of street art and accidentally disturb a dreadlocked local dozing in a doorway.
At Pork Store Cafe, a 40-year-old Haight Street institution famous for its huge breakfasts, I meet Amanda, a local, who tells me how the area's beautiful, Victorian, pastel-hued houses are being snapped up (and lovingly refurbished) by dotcom billionaires. She complains that prices have rocketed.
As I cycle towards the city centre, a smiling skateboarder shouts his encouragement and speeds past me – uphill. I realise his skateboard is battery-powered. I recall my chat with Amanda and wonder if it's Mark Zuckerberg or someone similar.
On the recommendation of a friend, I stop by Hotel Zetta in downtown San Francisco. Since last spring, it's been home to the world's first hotel-based virtual reality room. It's free to try – those in need of a moment of escapism (without the mind-altering drugs) can simply walk off the street into the padded room and slip on the headset.
I do so and find myself standing atop a shipwreck, one of several colourful worlds to be explored.
Neon fish swarm around me and when I turn around, I'm face-to-face with a huge, blinking whale. The next moment, I'm in a mountainous valley (apparently it's modelled on the landscape of Washington State).
Despite being just metres away from the rumbling trams, I can wander to a cliff edge and peer into a valley so deep that my stomach flips.
On my final night, I check out China Live, one of the city's newest restaurants. The walls are lined with hand-painted tiles showing local landmarks, such as the Transamerica Pyramid.
I sit at one of the communal tables and try jellyfish for the first time (it's salty, rubbery and delicious) with a potent, dragon fruit tea-infused cocktail.
Chinatown borders North Beach, a bay-side neighbourhood with a huge Italian community. I cycle home past Italian flags painted on lamp posts and delis blaring opera music.
In a nearby park, Chinese women perform perfectly choreographed tai chi routines near students making the most of California's decision to legalise marijuana. Suddenly, that Summer of Love doesn't seem quite so far away.
