No dating, no drama: just single people travelling together

Here at Flash Pack, 80% of our customers are single. We specialise in holidays for solo travellers, drawn together in the framework of a group.

6 covert ways to get fit on your travels

Hands up who wants to get fit? It’s an ambition many of us hanker after at the beginning of a new year – but wow, can it be boring. There are only so many re-runs of Home and Away one can watch on a treadmill before losing the will altogether, and the appeal of swimming […]

In an age of supreme digital connectivity, it’s ironic that many of us feel more disconnected than ever before. Having friends is strongly linked to health and happiness, and quality trumps quantity every time.

This is the world’s reigning gin capital

Here at Flash Pack, we have a penchant for all things gin. You could say that our appetite for the juniper tipple is so great, it rivals our passion for travel. Both are potent and moreish delights, with endless scope for adventure. And, while an ice-cold G&T is shorthand for a hot summer’s day, gin […]

Epic beach experiences for travellers over 30

Forget lying on a beach. That’s so last year. Instead, we crave experiences that make our hearts skip a beat. We want to get out on the waves, with the fresh ocean spray on our cheeks.
