In respect to Avis car hire you need to warn people that if they dont take Sun pass or Epass if they go through an unmanned toll then the pass will be automatically switched on plus $5.95 a day for 5 days PLUS TOLL CHARGES
Great service as always
Everyone cares and it's like talking to a family friend. They listen to you. That's important.
Lily and Billy have yet again exceeded expectations - good ideas and support throughout. A great experience
Excellent service as usual. Andrew goes above and beyond!
Thank you to Michelle - who looked after us excellently and with great calmness and charm.
First class service - Gary is so helpful. I wouldn't deal with anyone else
I have been using DialAFlight for at least the last 15 years. They have always given me the best service that I could wish for. On one occasion due to an illness they rearranged my flights and got me home earlier. I just explained the situation and they sorted everything.
First class service from start to finish
As always. The management and the team are simply the best.
Always helpful. Quick responses to any query.
Considering all the changes made by the airline and by myself from the initial booking everything went smoothly
Noah provided the perfect hassle free trip. Thanks again for making travel easy.
Libby is amazing!
Very helpful. Frazer was excellent
Perfect as always. Elliott did a great job. Thanks
Claire was excellent. British Airways flight was fine, the food service was terrible and BA charging to book seats for our family of 14 was very disappointing.
Nicole was brilliant
Excellant fisrt rate service as always from Dale and the team.
As ever all details to perfection. Great service as ever by Kelly and the guys.
Lloyd is always really helpful. He finds great deals and puts together an itinerary. He's helped when flight times changed. I call him for all my flights.
Reid did a great job as always.
The ability to contact people out of hours was a great help when our flights were delayed and cancelled. Everything that they said they would be doing they did. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking to book flights or a holiday.
Elliot was very efficient and helpful and left me with no hesitation that I could contact him with any queries.
Well done Teddy
I will certainly book through you again
Some of us just don't do theme parks. The last time I went on a rollercoaster (by mistake, thinking it was a scenic water ride), I was green for the rest of the day.
So when my husband suggested we should take the children to Orlando in Florida, we came to a compromise. I would find as many alternative activities for the family to enjoy, on the understanding we would never set foot in a theme park (not one with adrenaline rides anyway). The children, Ella, 11, and Ollie, 8, were sure I would relent once we got there.
While there's nothing particularly scenic about Orlando's main drag - the sprawling International Drive, with its huge shopping malls and eat-as-much-as-you-want buffet restaurants - if you drive south for 30 minutes to the Central Florida Everglades in Kissimmee, the scenery changes completely.
You can whizz through wetlands which stretch in either direction in an airboat at Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures. Out on the water, we see alligators basking in the sun, their heads emerging from the murky depths. The children squeal with delight.
On land, there's a replica Native American village, where we learn about the Jororo Tribe, which once lived on the Kissimmee River, from a local. The children love his body piercings and tattoos.
To get close to the alligators, we head to Gatorland . The wildlife park has been dedicated to 'gators great and small for more than 70 years, and is 20 minutes by car from International Drive.
We goggle at 14ft monsters in the breeding marsh, feed medium-sized alligators bait, and see the razor-sharp teeth of beady-eyed babies.
As if we were in any doubt, The Gator Jumparoo and Up-Close Encounter shows, where keepers show off the power of some giants, demonstrate only too clearly that alligators are not to be messed with.
They don't call Florida the 'Sunshine State' for nothing. Orlando has year-round sun. So for a day in the shade, we head to WonderWorks, an indoor 'edutainment' centre on International Drive, which promisingly offers exploration and learning at the same time.
I feel smug that I am ticking the 'good parent' box, in zones including 'natural disasters' and 'space exploration', where we experience a hurricane and earthquake and take on a glow-in-the-dark rope course.
There are no big rides at WonderWorks, but head to ICON Park, less than a mile way, and you'll find a 400-ft observation wheel, where the far-reaching views stretch to the East coast.
Nights out on holiday can be restrictive with children, but at Old Town Kissimmee we join petrol heads in a gleaming Chevy from across the region for the Saturday night Classic Car Cruise.
Get lucky and you'll see a real rocket launch at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex on Merritt Island, just under an hour's drive from Orlando.
We get very lucky indeed, watching a satellite shoot into space. In the centre itself, there are enough exhibits to visit over several days. Walk underneath the suspended 364ft-long Saturn V, the largest rocket ever flown, and you feel very small.
Ella is particularly interested in the Heroes & Legends area, which documents the success of space pioneers. My husband is so impressed with the dramatic recreation of the 1969 Apollo 11 launch from the actual operation room used on the day that he goes back for more.
It was the children who spotted Epic McD, the world's largest entertainment McDonald's on West Sand Lake Road, not far from International Drive. It turns out to be a good find.
As well as a free soft play area, there's an arcade of 50 games with pre-loaded money cards.
Taking children shopping is an endurance test, but at Florida Mall the hands-on Crayola Experience helps a lot. Here we make personalised crayons.
Buying time for grown-up purchases of cut-price sportswear, my husband promises the children we'll later visit the huge M&M store.
Back home, Ollie has an alligator claw keyring from Gatorland, while Ella has a personalised Chevy number plate on her wall.
And no one asks why we didn't do theme parks.
