My Reviews

Once again Philip has organised a fabulous holiday

Once again Philip has organised a fabulous holiday for us. This one was just for a week but Philip still came up with great suggestions, and put every effort into making it all run smoothly as usual. Any questions were answered promptly and all correspondence was detailed and reliable. We will certainly be planning our next holiday through Holidays Beckon.

Extremely friendly and helpful

I booked a family cruise through Philip a few months back! He was extremely friendly and helpful with all of my questions and advised me of things I didn’t even think about! This was our first time on a cruise and Philip made the whole process so easy!
We had three separate bookings to make but that was no problem at all for him as he was always willing to help!
The day before the cruise he even reminded me about printing our check in papers and bag tags! Lucky because we would have forgot!
We will definitely use Philip again in the future when making any holiday plans!

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.

Amazing support in planning & during our holiday

Thank you Philip for organising our 7 night interstate holiday in the Northern Territory. We found our holiday not only stress free, budgeted but very comfortable, and well organised. Our holiday was fantastic and tailored well to our wants. Detailed particulars, insights and support given in planning and during our holiday by Philip were amazing.
