Amy as always is a delight! Wouldn’t book our flights with anyone else.
Very helpful when I contacted them and nothing a bother
As always our experience was perfect. Enjoyed the Virgin premium economy flight home which gave us extra bags to bring back our treasures after selling our Florida home. Although we won’t be making the trip twice a year to Florida we will always use DialAFlight for our future travels
Have been using you for years and recommended loads of friends to use your excellent service!
Shame BA were not as helpful and despite cancelling our flight they did not help at all in resolving to a better deal to get us home
Theo helped us when our flights were cancelled coming home - would highly recommend Theo and Jeff
Great service, kept well informed
Everything went great. Good company to use
Jack did an excellent job as usual with no problems
First class service as usual from Eve and the team. Always there to keep you right and answer any questions.
Just keep up the fantastic service and a big thank you to Gary
I always deal with Charlie Miles who is so helpful and kind as I know I ask some bizarre questions. Wouldn’t book a trip without him!
Fantastic company with great customer service. I have used DialAFlight for many years and have always been treated with care and dedication. Daniel knows that l am not good with technology and he takes it all in his stride when l phone him. He helps enormously to stop my fears and worries.
Jeff was very responsive. Super helpful and very kind.
Great service overall although on the way back, they put one of our suitcases on the wrong flight so we had to get that delivered to our home which was done very promptly.
Very impressed with support given
Excellent service as always from Dylan Harris. Dylan has helped us with our travel plans for many years and without fail always goes above and beyond with ensuring that every single detail of our holiday is perfect. I would recommend him without hesitation and would never trust anyone else with travel decisions as I doubt there is anyone better.
This is the third time I used you, excellent service thank you
Always good service from DialAFlight !
The guy I dealt with was really good...helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Thoroughly recommended.
As always, friendly knowledgeable staff. Elliot and Roy sorted out my trips to my specific preferences, always at the best price, and send prompts about travel requirements and reminders as my trip draws close. Already have my next trip booked with them.
I have been using DialAFlight for a number of years and would not consider using anyone else. They take all the stress out of planning your holiday.
Brilliant service as ever. Have already recommended to a friend who has booked through DialAFlight
Another excellent trip, kept well informed, will keep on booking with DialAFlight. Any problems are always sorted out.
Gavin is always extremely helpful.
Excellent customer service. Highly recommend
Our travel manager Deborah was extremely helpful and patient in helping us find the exact holiday we were looking for. Everything including flights, car hire and villa were excellent.
Ben Till is an excellent adviser and provided a great deal with really nice service.
Joe is awesome. Ground service and food/ drinks on the flight was a disaster.
Top class service from start to finish. The only people we would book with. Thank you Harry and the team.
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.
