We don't do ordinary
Forget your average holiday to the Costa Del Dull. Your trips with Flash Pack will be a fully immersive travelling experience – served with a side of luxury. We firmly believe life off the tourist trodden track is where all the fun happens, and we’re passionate about creating unforgettable trips that will quench your thirsty wanderlust.
We've got a kind people only policy
Anyone demonstrating mean-spirited behaviour is not welcome in our Flashpacking world. Expect a call from one of our dedicated customer happiness heroes when you book as we like to make sure everyone is a good fit for our adventures. We are a community of open-minded, open-hearted travel lovers and we don’t accept everyone onto our holidays. Far from your average travel company, we’re all about smaller-sized group trips and our personal touch applies from the moment you express interest in booking a trip. We work tirelessly to ensure harmonious dynamics between each of the small groups and personally curate each tour to pair people up who are most likely to become friends for life.
We do this because we love it
Our business is built on passion and an obsession with globetrotting, and everyone at Flash Pack eats, sleeps and breathes travel. We painstakingly seek out the best experiences and hidden gems for you to show all that a country has to offer.
We believe in making a positive difference
We believe that each of us can make a positive contribution to our world by choosing where to spend our hard-earned pennies wisely. We actively cooperate with a variety of global communities, indigenous peoples, and local businesses to ensure that your money goes directly to uplifting those who need it most.
We look after your money
We include a wide selection of activities on our itineraries so you don’t have to fork out on extras along the way. Our prices might seem a little higher than the competition, but if you compare what you get you’ll see we are much better value for money, with a number of meals included within the price, too. By the end of your trip you’ll feel like you’ve done two months of travelling, just without the sore backpacker-shoulders – the massages will sort that all out!
We love our customers
Our customers are our raison d'être, and your happiness is our happiness. Anything we recommend is because we truly believe it’s the best experience available, and we’re passionate about helping you 30-40 something's create unique memories that will last a lifetime.
We do the boring bits
No one has time to spend 2 months researching their trip and the guide book can only give you so much. We know most of you are too busy kicking ass in the business world and catching up with friends to get bogged down with detail when it comes to planning your trips, so our Travel Experts are on hand to do all the boring bits for you. Whether it’s making sure you’ve got the right visas or simply giving you advice on what to wear, we’ve got your back.
We're not for everyone
We like adventure, fun, thrills and excitement. So if you’re looking for a relaxing 2 weeks by a pool, this is not for you. It is for you, however, if you want to break out of your comfort zone and live life to the full. There may be butterflies in your stomach, crazy traffic, sunburn, spicy food, early starts, bamboozling road signs and language barriers, yet this is what travelling is all about, and we LOVE it! You’ll also be joined by an expert Flash Pack guide every step of the way, so you can relax knowing they’ll take care of all the details whilst you just enjoy the ride…and there’s always our optional beach extension packages if you need to relax before you head home to the 9-5 grind.
We've got your back
Your safety is top of our agenda, and we use only the most experienced local guides who you can trust implicitly to ensure you feel comfortable and secure throughout your trip.

What we do
We meticulously research and curate itineraries with you in mind, seeking out off-the-beaten-track locations far away from the crowds, and organise exclusive activities such as private wine tasting in the desert that would be hard to organise alone.
We make sure you’re spending your precious time off with a small group of like-minded people of a similar age who’ll soon become firm friends, so that you don’t have to worry about singing Kumbaya round a camp fire with a group of dreadlocked teenagers or taking it easy with pensioners who want to be in bed by 9pm. Unlike other group travel companies, there are no enforced single supplements with Flash Pack – we think it sucks. Instead, we give you the chance to enjoy boutique hotels by pairing you up with someone you’ll click with so you can share the cost of the room. Most room buddies come back best of friends! To make it even easier, we introduce you to your fellow flashpackers before you go on holiday, so you get the chance to chat and break the ice before travelling.
