My Personal Travel Experience
I am the owner of Holidays Beckon, a travel & cruise agency offering a specialised & personal service to my clients.
I have been involved in the travel & tourism industry for over 15 years & hold a Certificate III in Travel. I am also a Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) Master.
Being born & raised in Darwin, I consider myself a Northern Territory specialist including the Top End & the Red Centre. I have a large circle of friends & acquaintances in Darwin who, together with myself, can offer expert advice & insider knowledge of travelling in the N.T.
I love to travel. It is truly one of my life passions! I have toured extensively through Europe including Croatia, Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Greece, Iceland, & the UK, as well as Asia, Canada, the US (including Alaska) and New Zealand.
My favourite European destinations include Dubrovnik, Florence, & Barcelona. Some of my most memorable travel experiences have included snow-shoeing near Fraser in British Columbia & witnessing the magic of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) near Reykjavik, Iceland.
I’ve helped clients research, plan & book extensive trips to destinations including South America, Ireland, & Thailand. I’ve also arranged travel for special interest groups & reunions.
My specialties include solo travel, cruising, music cruises, group travel, special events, organised tours, custom itineraries, & LGBTI travel.
I regularly undertake training and certification in the travel & tourism industry to ensure my skills and knowledge remain current.
You can search & book cruises, flights, hotels & tours worldwide on my website, with the added benefit of having my expertise & support just a chat away.
Be assured that you’re dealing with someone who cares deeply about your travel plans & is committed to an ongoing partnership beyond your first holiday!
I look forward to making your Holidays Beckon!
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.
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!
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.
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.
