You were, as usual, brilliant. Assistance at Heathrow excellent. At Newark no assistance or help. UA are not offering vegetarian meals. Was told to bring my own! However, flight attendant brought me a spare veggie meal from first class! Heathrow was spacious, calm and relaxing. Newark was loud, crowded, tannoy announcements every few minutes, music, eateries dominating the terminal which made the whole gate experience unrelaxing! I was very glad I had managed to upload all travel docs onto UA Travel Centre because you had to have a boarding card which said Travel Ready to board. If not, paper docs had to be verified at another gate. So, you came out on top. UA and Newark Airport didn’t!
Billy was the best - even the smallest of things he helped me with. I have already recommended him to friends
Thank you for all your help. Everything went as planned!
Ian was fantastic with booking our flights and car. He listened to what we wanted and provided an excellent solution. We have not used a company before to book flights - usually book direct - but our experience with DialAFlight, and especially Ian, has changed this. We will certainly be returning customers
Well done, everything done by your company was perfect.
Not your fault but we were delayed 4 hours on our return. Thank you for organising our trip
Jack and Glen were extremely helpful with the changing COVID regulations.
Fabulous service - will always use you
Thank you particularly for prompt contact when PCR tests were suddenly introduced three days before our flight home. Really appreciated that.
Isaac very helpful
I had used DialAFlight previously so after trawling the flights to see if I could do it myself, and couldn't, I thought I would see if you could help me again. As soon as Eric picked up the phone, I felt looked after. He found the flights, seats, great prices and then gave me time to think and confirm with my brother in the USA. During our trip regulations changed and the phone was picked up on a Sunday and my worries calmed. I hate flying but now, after this trip, I love it and can't wait to get on a plane again. Highly recommend
Your booking arrangements and support were greatly appreciated for all the current areas of uncertainty, and were generally much more clear than other advice.
Thoughtful that you rang just before I departed - much appreciated.
Excellent service and competitive prices - very pleased indeed
Excellent service from Teddy. Phone calls were answered quickly. I haven’t used a travel agency for many years but will certainly use this company again.
Would only use you and have recommended you
Frankfurt airport is a nightmare - never going through there again!
Superb service. Thank you.
Reid was very helpful. Made sure I got all information and on time but he also followed it up with a call to make sure I understand what was needed. Really appreciate your patience.
Everyone at DialAFlight was very helpful. Darryll and crew, thanks for your help. Will be booking again soon
It took 3 hours to get our car and then we could only get two med size suitcases in the boot. Had to change it to a larger vehicle. Not your fault but very disappointing
Declan was great as usual - and his after-care service is second to none!
It's really good to know there's someone at the end of a phone. At both airports, I found that only paper documents were asked for, so all the stress of trying to upload them to apps was a waste of time. Apart from that, everything went very smoothly.
Many thanks for your excellent service and support.
Bailey and his team were fantastic from start to finish. I have already recommended to our neighbours. Exceptional service.
Bruce was on the ball every step of the way - I could not have asked for better help
As ever, Marie looked after our bookings brilliantly
Top company this and a top team l have been travelling with on a regular basis for 22 years. These people always answer the phone. You're not left listening to automated answer phones or annoying music. Highly recommend the team and all their services.
Fantastic service. Everything worked out just as planned and the whole booking process was extremely simple. The help, advice and support was perfect and all the time I was able to talk to a real person who I could understand!
Since it started coming to life as a resort of extreme recreation early last century, Las Vegas has been a place of decadence, excess, and supercharged entertainment.
But it's not all about the dollar-draining casinos, unfathomable heat and oversized frozen cocktails - there's an incredible array of performances, concerts and comedy shows to keep you entertained every single night of the week.
This is all an unbelievably far cry from the town where, just over a century ago, all gambling was banned under strict new laws - even the flipping of a coin among friends to decide who was to pay for a round of drinks.
The name Las Vegas had been given to the area in 1829 by a trading party that was travelling to Los Angeles and stopped for water there - at that time, several parts of the valley contained artesian wells surrounded by extensive green areas. Las Vegas means the meadows in Spanish.
It officially became a city in 1905 when 110 acres of what was to become downtown were auctioned off to ready buyers. By 1931, Nevada state law-makers realised that the city's well-established illegal gambling industry would be more profitable for everyone if it was legalised.
The first gambling licence was issued to the Northern Club, with other venues to follow such as the Las Vegas Club and the Apache Hotel.
The city's first traffic light arrived that year too - and many other lights of the neon type were soon to follow as Las Vegas swiftly rose to be the gaming capital of the world.
Now it's all about shows as much as gambling, and one that's going from strength to strength is The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil, which has just celebrated ten years at The Mirage Hotel & Casino, during which time it has been seen by eight million people. Even Sir Paul McCartney described it as 'the greatest show in Vegas'.
LOVE is just one of seven Cirque spectaculars taking place across the city. The flagship event - O, at the Bellagio - features high dives, walking on water and the most impressive synchronised swimming and diving outside the Olympics.
If watching big-name pop acts is more your scene, head to Caesars Palace. Sir Elton John, Rod Stewart, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey are just some of those currently sharing headline slots.
The merchandise shop is worth popping into too, even if it's just to marvel at the $11 biros bearing the faces of the performers.
COULD IT BE MAGIC
Vegas has a long history of magic powers - and not just the ability to make huge sums of dollars disappear almost instantly. Siegfried and Roy wowed the crowds in Vegas from 1990 to 2003 before Roy was seriously injured on stage by a 380lb white tiger.
Since then, the wand has been passed on to Penn and Teller - they have been performing at the Rio for more than a decade, while David Copperfield is enjoying a residency at the MGM Grand.
Any Elvis fans planning on making a pilgrimage to his spiritual home this year will be in for a treat. The King may be dead, but long live the King - he's being reincarnated as a hologram to perform 15 shows at a venue yet to be announced.
The company behind the technology, Pulse Evolution, previously created a hologram of Michael Jackson for the 2014 Billboard Awards, which drew gasps of astonishment for its accuracy.
Alternatively, Elvis is available in tribute act form - he has been in the building at the Flamingo for the Legends In Concert, appearing alongside impersonators of Michael Jackson, Tina Turner and country star Garth Brooks.
Only in Vegas, right?
