Flash Pack Unveils B2B Program Aimed at Travel Advisors

For the first time in its history, adventure travel company Flash Pack is opening its doors to a global pool of travel advisor partners. The London-based startup—which specializes in small group escapes for travelers in their 30s and 40s—has seen strong growth since its November 2021 relaunch, with 55 employees in 10 countries.

Now, the company is looking to expand its product to third-party agents. The move comes at a point of growth for the brand, which has already exceeded pre-pandemic levels of revenue and plans to double growth in destinations over the next 12 months.

“Flash Pack has always been a direct-to-consumer brand, so our new travel agent scheme represents a significant shift—for the first time, we’ll be looking to partner with other sole traders and small businesses in the industry,” says Ike Offor, Flash Pack’s head of sales. “We believe that, with travel set to bounce back in a huge way into 2024, the timing is right for this evolution. We want to be ready for the spike ahead and we’re confident that we can draw on the talent of agents around the world, who believe in our vision of people-powered adventures, to help meet our ambitious growth targets."

He added that they are looking to work with U.S., U.K. and Australian-based partners "who can support our mission to find the right people to travel with us." 

Flash Pack curates such experiences like sleeping in a converted Land Rover suite in the Serengeti, dining with Sumos in Japan or staying on a private Arctic Island in Finland. These are combined with the knowledge of Pack Leaders, who share local insight and cultural authenticity of their countries.

Travel advisors who want to be part of this vision are expected to be great team players, with a strong growth mindset and focus on customer experience. In return, Flash Pack says it can offer "a track record of delivering adventures that clients love," along with a 12 percent commission rate. Partners will also be granted access to a dedicated Flash Pack travel consultant for client queries, along with early updates on new product launches and promotions in the company’s monthly newsletter, which goes out to 150,000 subscribers.
