Darryll has been my contact at DialAFlight for years now and has always been excellent with our travel requirements and finds us the best deals. Would highly recommend!
Very well organised as ever - great customer support
Very good, very helpful, brilliant!
Everything went to plan perfectly
Ralph was very helpful along the way, answered all questions. The only thing that was a problem was the airline changed our flights from Gatwick to Heathrow causing extra money for taxi
We had a fantastic trip and all our arrangements went to plan. Great communications from Connie
Great service as always, many thanks.
As always, Joe knocked it out of the park and we were delighted with all the travel / accommodation he had arranged - everything worked perfectly and nothing to distract us from enjoying our holiday. I would absolutely recommend using Joe and DialAFlight for your travel arrangements.
Original flight was cancelled but the 24 hr helpline arranged new flights for us immediately. Arrived later than expected but better than not at all.
Perfect service as always, thanks for making it all such a friendly and straightforward experience!
Excellent service as always and looking forward to our booking for 2024
Great communication and such a bargain price for the flights. Excellent
Brilliant advice and service from Julie as usual!
Matthew Price is a legend in travel.
As always brilliant service from Declan and DialAFlight
The personal touch from Robert makes for confidence when looking to book flights
Everything went according to plan. Thank you.
I have used them for years. Nicky always looks after us. Good company
Just to let you know that Jet Blue has declined slightly since they started transatlantic flights earlier in the year, but still efficient, well priced flights. Everything punctual!
Excellent service and friendly advisers.
Thanks for another successful trip.
Excellent follow up and service provided by Ewan and Lee.
Excellent service. Definitely recommend and will use again
How refreshing it is to deal directly with a person at all times. From the initial travel inquiry, the booking itself and finally a call prior to leaving to say if we had any problems while we were away there was a number we could ring for advice. Particular thanks must go to Jerry, whose communication was second to none.
Matt always manages to get me a good deal - a pleasure to work with him
Always a great experience when booking with Dennis and the team.
I am looking forward to booking my next holiday with my DialAFlight
Very happy to recommend John - he is very professional and makes booking flights easy.
As I get older, I find the hassle and unreliability of looking and booking flights online a dreadful nuisance. I also very much like having a human being to call if there is a query or a problem. I really like DialAFlight.
Eric, thank you for helping me with last minute flights to visit my mother who unexpectedly moved into a retirement home right before Thanksgiving. You worked around and found us good seats that got us there and back in the time frame we needed
I've always longed to visit the Florida Keys because it sounds so romantic. I'm a huge fan of the 1948 movie Key Largo, which starred Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. And of course, the area has a strong connection with Ernest Hemingway - the author lived on Key West.
Fans still turn up in Key Largo every October for the annual Humphrey Bogart Film Festival. One highlight is a chance of a cruise on the fully restored African Queen, the original boat from John Huston's 1951 film of the same name starring Bogart and Katharine Hepburn.
Hemingway fans aren't forgotten either. The annual Hemingway Lookalike competition takes place in July at Key West bar Sloppy Joe's. An entire bar full of Hemingway clones sounds slightly frightening but each to their own.
My actor husband Trevor and I had long ago decided we wanted to visit the Keys, but never seemed to get around to it. However, a pleasure deferred is a pleasure intensified.
After our plane touched down in Miami, we rented a car and headed south. It may not look far on the map but from Miami to Key West is around 150 miles - a three-hour drive because the road isn't brilliant.
We were based at Sunset Key Cottages, reached from the Westin Key West Resort and Marina.
At the Westin we were ushered aboard a little ferry and whisked across to the amazing Sunset Key. It was a fabulous away-from-it-all place but had the advantage of the bustling delights of Key West on its doorstep.
We immediately fell in love with Key West and its coloured clapboard houses. For many young Americans, this is a vibrant party town.
Main Street at night is a delight because so much goes on: music pouring from crowded bars and the occasional Hemingway lookalike waiting for his big day!
During the day there are several interesting places to visit. I enjoyed the Little White House, the holiday home of US President Harry Truman, famous for his remark 'the buck stops here'.
It was on his watch that atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki - the responsibility must have been immense. Another unmissable place is the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum. The writer lived here for ten years during one of his most prolific writing periods. The main attraction here is its 50 six-toed cats.
Hemingway was given a white six-toed cat by a ship's captain, and some of the cats who live in the museum grounds are descendants of that original feline, named Snow White.
There is also a good Tennessee Williams exhibition in Key West - the author had a home here for 34 years. It was in Key West that he is believed to have completed the final draft of A Streetcar Named Desire.
For most of the time, however, we were content to bask in serenity on our 27-acre island, which was a naval base before it was acquired by the Westin. It was a little piece of paradise.
One minute we were in Key West, with its tourist bustle and huge cruise ships - the big Disney liners a particular feature - but when we crossed back to our island, all the noise disappeared.
We had an idyllic white-sand beach and azure waters. It was the best five days we've ever had. Sublime. Watching the sun go down is a big event in Key West - everybody stops to watch. And when it got dark we loved looking up at the stars.
After our Key West stay we drove back to Miami. We were staying in Miami Beach, at the very southern end of the resort. We met some really cool people.
One of my great pleasures was swimming in the ocean - so warm and silky. I'm a Liverpudlian and Liverpudlians have a special love for the US - Liverpool used to the main port for travel to America. Our city is where all the Cunarders used to sail from.
If you're staying in Miami, I would recommend dining at the fantastic Seaspice on the Miami River.
They serve what is described as a 'globally inspired menu' featuring a raw bar and dishes ranging from wood-fired casseroles to Dover sole and branzino, a type of seabass. The views over the city and the river are also very special.
A lot of people think that Florida means Disney World or the start of a cruise, but if you're prepared to search a little further you'll discover that there's much, much more.
