NOT SURE WHAT ‘FLASHPACKING’ IS ALL ABOUT?

Put simply, flashpacking is a mix of backpacking and luxury travel. It has the independent vibe of backpacking with the budget (and mindset!) to allow for some splurges along the way.

There will be family-friendly budget and mid-range hotels or hostels (or places like Center Parcs), along with the odd boutique hotel or nice Airbnb thrown in. And whilst there could be a 2nd class rail trip or a long bus ride, there’s just as likely to be car hire, taxis or short flights.

We love the advantages of independent family travel, and like to mix things up. Read more about our take on flashpacking. So far, we’ve been flashpacking our way through a decent number of countries… but there are so many more on our bucket list!
