First-Time Solo Trip FAQ

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

Embarking on your first solo trip might just be the best decision you’ll ever make – a chance to put yourself first and go on the group adventure you’ve always dreamed of. But first, let’s ease you in… Perhaps with some island-hopping around the Philippines, a stint on Sri Lanka’s beaches or an action-packed adventure in Iceland that’ll let you test the waters of solo travel over five short days. As an added bonus, your first-time solo vacation with Flash Pack is designed to get the group dynamics right, connecting you with similar like-minded people in their 30s and 40s, so there’s every chance you’ll return home with a whole new crew of well-traveled friends.

Why should you embark on a group solo trip?

We understand group solo travel can be daunting. But it just might be one of the best things you’ll ever do. Taking on new challenges is what we’re all about at Flash Pack and stepping that little bit outside your comfort zone is 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 people – all in their 30s and 40s – and make amazing new friendships along the way.

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

Back in 2014, our co-founder and keen traveler, 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 traveling together – and leave having made a whole bunch of new friends.
