For single professionals in their 30s and 40s, the quest to find a travel buddy can be a bit of a deal breaker when it comes to making a dream travel experience happen. This is why Flash Pack was created, to unite soloists to join together for adventures of a lifetime. But these are no ordinary group tours. Expect adventure-packed itineraries with luxury hotels and unforgettable experiences.
The best bit? You get to share the adventure with like-minded solo travellers in their 30s and 40s: the same life stage, the same age group and the same desire to travel the world.
For solo people at this point in their lives, we believe it’s the perfect time to meet new people and quench that thirst for wanderlust. Just choose your destination and we’ll set you up with fellow travellers ready to explore life off-the-beaten path. We’ll also put you in a position to make new friends and form unbreakable bonds.
Meet solo travellers in their 30s and 40s
The majority of group tours out there can be a bit of a (not so) lucky dip when it comes to who you’re travelling with. So, it may sound ruthless, but we’re really strict about keeping our adventures solely for single travellers aged in their 30s and 40s. In this age range, we find people want awesome adventures, balanced with luxury and comfort.
A large portion of our customers – 68%, in fact – have never been on a group tour before, often because they’ve had their career hat on and been busy carving out a successful life. Now, with a little more money under their belt, the nagging feeling of missing out on seeing the world is too strong to resist.
But as their friends settle down, have kids and head off on family holidays, trying to find people to travel with becomes increasingly difficult. That’s why we specifically target our marketing to get the right kind of Flashpacker on our trips. So, you won’t find 18 year olds looking for late nights or retirees in search of gentle coach tours.
Share meaningful experiences together
We’ve learnt along the way one very simple equation: like-minded travellers + epic experiences = the best kind of friendships.
It seems that when a group of similarly aged people find themselves doing something new and exciting, this is the ultimate situation to meet new travel buddies and form beautiful bonds.
There’s something about pushing yourself beyond comfort zones together that ignites connection. Whether this is trekking to the colourful summit of Rainbow Mountain or bathing in geothermal pools in Iceland, these experiences create memories and friendships that last a lifetime.
Swerve the single supplement
On our adventures, you get to swerve the single supplement normally incurred when solo travelling, because instead we match you up with like-minded roommates.
This may seem a bold move at first, but we believe this is a really great way to get to know your fellow travellers. The rooms are all same gender, but we’re not talking bunk beds and lights out at 9pm.
Our accommodation is unique and consciously chosen – think converted safari trucks in the Serengeti and hideaway hotels on private islands in Finland. Whether you’re staying in the desert or glamping in the jungle, as a solo traveller, it’s so much more fun this way.
Get together for reunions
After all the memories you co-created with your fellow Flashpackers, we bet you’ll be planning a reunion as soon as you land.
We get that making new friends in your 30s and 40s alongside a hectic career can be rare, so we love bringing together like-minded adventure travellers that often remain friends for life.
Flashpacker Amanda who travelled to Vietnam with us, summed up the experience: “I truly believe that no one will understand the essence of a Flash Pack adventure until you have been through it yourself. I wouldn’t hesitate to do another Flash Pack trip, not just because of the amazing itineraries and destinations, but because what’s not to like about potentially making great friends for life?”.
