Flash Pack

Flash Pack connects like-minded professionals in their 30s and 40s in groups to travel together. Flash Pack curates the group dynamic, so that everyone is on the same wavelength.

They also have a kind-people only policy: to make sure that everyone shares the same travel values.

Flash Pack’s idea is simple, match like-minded souls with comfort-bursting adventure to create some great memories and make the most of their holidays. Flash Pack also sets up the Flash Pack Foundation to channel money back into local communities the groups travel to and support local businesses.
