Important news about the future of Flash Pack

Updated 3rd November 2020

It’s been an adventure

Sadly we are no longer trading, but we will be back soon

Like many travel businesses, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on Flash Pack. The industry has been hit hard, affecting group travel aimed at solo travellers particularly badly.

We’ve spent every day of the last seven months searching for ways that would allow Flash Pack to continue, from funding to furloughing. And, although we know travel will return, continuing to search for a viable solution with no clear idea of when this will happen is now too great a risk. 

With that in mind, Lee and I have decided to place Flash Pack into administration immediately, to help our existing customers get a refund as quickly as possible.

However, we’re not ready for the adventure to end.

By remortgaging our home, we’ve been able to save the business – and our hope is to relaunch some time in 2021, when or if the pandemic allows. The future of our adventure is still uncertain and we have no idea if we’ll be back but, for now, our website and social channels will remain online, in hibernation.

If you’re an existing customer then you should have received an email from us, however if you require more information please visit our FAQ section for further guidance. If you need any additional support then please contact [email protected] where Lee & I will be responding and helping you, as soon as we can.

We’d like to thank our wonderful community of Flashpackers, for everything – it’s been an enormous privilege. Your courage, friendliness and spirit of adventure is what made Flash Pack today, and the thousands of lasting friendships formed on our adventures – along with the growing confidence in the joy of solo travel – are the legacies we hope will continue into the future, with or without us.

Thank you everyone for what has been an unbelievable adventure – our wonderful customers, our global partners and, above all, our supremely talented team. 

We wish you all the best – please stay safe and keep your travel dreams alive. We hope to see you again soon.
