First-Time Solo Trip FAQs

Why should you go on a solo trip for the first time?

In our 30s and 40s it can be hard to find travel companions to share our adventures with – but that doesn’t mean you should have to miss out.

Joining a group tour might seem daunting, but it’s often a revelation. You just need to be brave enough to take that first step – and trust us to take care of the rest… In return, you’ll meet like-minded solo travellers and make amazing new friendships along the way (60% of Flashpackers keep in touch).

At Flash Pack, we ensure you get the most out of your first solo travel adventure with our handcrafted group travel packages. Learn more about how it works.

Why choose Flash Pack for your first group solo travel adventure?

Back in 2014, our co-founder and keen traveller, Radha Vyas, spotted a gap in the group-tour market for people in their 30s and 40s. So, she set up Flash Pack to deliver immersive, experience-led group adventures for like-minded people at the same life stage. The vast majority of Flashpackers (98%, in fact) arrive solo, before travelling together – and leave having made a whole bunch of new friends.

What’s the difference between Flash Pack’s different travel styles?

All our adventures are friendship-focussed, with immersive activities, hand-picked accommodation and experienced local guides… but which trip style will you choose? 

Classic: The perfect mix of adventure and comfort in some of the world’s top destinations. These trips are active and fast-paced with internal flights, excursions and most meals included.

Balanced: Even more affordable, slower-paced itineraries with more free time, minimal physical challenge and no internal flights. Fewer excursions and meals out but no compromise on quality.

Bucket-List: Once-in-a-lifetime trips with bespoke accommodation, exceptional service and exclusive activities. More expensive than our Classic adventures but worth saving up for.

Short stay: Three- to five- day trips offering the same level of immersion, adventure and group-bonding as our longer itineraries but in an affordable bite-sized package.
