Would never use Dollar car hire again - terrible car and service
Everything from DialAFlight was fab as usual but the one thing I would like to say was how terrible Dollar car hire were. 2.5 hour wait in queue with child in tow. Very disorganised and totally battered cars and one nearly broke down. Wouldn’t use Dollar / Thrifty again
Always efficient and nothing is too much trouble.
Finn most helpful. So much so we have booked another holiday with your company
As always Ben Till was great.
Rupert has taken care of my Florida trips for about 25 years. Always great and nothing is too much trouble. Have recommended on numerous occasions and will continue to.
Very helpful whenever we called
All arrangements as we've experienced before were excellent. The only negative element of our trip was the car hire pick up at Orlando, an airport we have used regularly over the last 15 years. Our car hire voucher was for Dollar, and we had a 90 minute queue wait before being served. This is the worst it has ever been
Delighted with DialAFlight throughout and from first call... excellent customer service and attention to detail. All as I remembered from some 20 years ago!
Your team did great
DialAFlight delivered exactly what we expected and kept us updated throughout the process. Part of what we purchased was car hire via Hertz. They however for their part at collection at MCO were very disappointing, only 5 people in front of us and it was over one hour to get seen and get car details. Not ideal
Excellent deal with fly drive and hotel. Prompt response with quote however I wouldn’t fly with Aer Lingus again, old aircraft and not allowed to pick seats, therefore we were sat at the back with broken TV.
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.
