My Reviews

Thank you for organising our Darwin holiday.
Thankyou Philip for organising our Darwin holiday. Philip was professional, friendly, informative, happy to answer any of my questions, no matter how silly…and explained anything I didn’t quite understand.
Very satisfied with the service from Holidays Beckon 😎🏖️🛫🌞🌞
- Julie Cee, WA
Service was excellent; knowledgeable & helpful

I used Holidays Beckon to organise and book a trip from Brisbane to Cairns on the Spirit of Queensland train. The service was excellent, and I found Philip to be knowledgeable and extremely helpful – even following up on my further questions after I had made the final booking! I would not hesitate in recommending Holidays Beckon to others.

- Andrew Aylesbury, NSW
Extremely happy with the service

We recently returned from a holiday to Phuket. Philip organised all our flights, connections, transfers etc and made the whole process so easy! The service was so good – about 1 week prior to leaving, we received an email with ALL relevant paperwork located in the one email (we’d been emailing back and forth for a while) which seriously just got us so organised. Extremely happy with the service and would definitely use Philip again for our next trip.

Rock the Boat

Philip Clape was very helpful to us. Everytime we had a question or request, and the cruise itself was a real blast. We had more fun than I could have imagined.
