The whole thing was very smooth and effortless and it was really handy to have Packed on whatsapp meaning you could as a question anytime and it was fairly informal too! I will definitely be recommending Packed to others!

Oliver Salisbury
"TOP customer service!!!"

I approached Packed with a work project, searching for a Ski trip for 50 people. Right from the beginning the customer service was super, within a couple of days I had 2 trips that fitted the criteria perfectly. Due to the nature of my job I was unable to progress quickly and was back & forth with questions and requests, but nevertheless Ed Mellor continued to be professional, extremely helpful and patient. There was never a delay is receiving responses to my many emails.

Trusted Customer
"Responsive and helpful, thank you!"

Excellent response times, nice query too small and just made my life so much easier. Thank you!

Great team, great service. Will definitely use again.

Lewis Jones
"Simple, fast and super helpful"

I saw an advert on Instagram and thought it’d be worth a shout as I was having a hard time booking a ski trip for myself and 6 mates. From start to finish it was easy messaging through WhatsApp and they found brilliant deals for us. Would happily recommend to anyone thinking of using them. Ed was fantastic and super fast to reply and keep my up to date

Trusted Customer

Would absolutely recommend. It made booking a group holiday so much easier and completely removes the hassle. will definitely be using again.

Trusted Customer

I've booked with My Swft for the last 3 years, 4 holidays in total. This year was even better. The new online booking is really simple to be able to share with the group and get people to choose a location. Then everyone managing their own booking makes it even easier for the group leader!

Adam Burrage
"Fantastic Service"

Fantastic service for all aspects of the holiday. Made our leaves easy.

Melissa Harris
"Excellent service and highly recommend!"

Going Pains

As lead booker, organising a group holiday can be a nightmare. All considerations rest on you to herd the party towards a date and location, balancing concerns and managing budgets and payments

It's time consuming

The time invested is staggering. On average group leaders will consult 38 different websites before settling on a location and will set foot on the plane having undertaken anywhere from 10-30 hours of planning. By way of comparison, in 24 hours Jack Bauer stopped a political assassination and rescued his kidnapped wife and daughter.

Booking big parties is not much fun

Large travelling groups bring many problems. The first big issue you’ll have to negotiate is nailing down a date you’re all free. Even presenting an initial range of weekends that the girls aren’t already backed up with weddings can be challenging.

But you finally have a date. How to organise the thing? Long email chain? People don’t check it often enough and will inevitably miss crucial emails. WhatsApp it is. With the onus on the group leader to double save all the documents and track responses to questions about individual needs. Dietary requirements? Ski carriage needed? Flying from a different airport to the rest of the booking? Every change, every question, every detail must be accounted for and relayed. And now there are just 16 lots of payments to be made on time. In one month. And then again in three months time…

Payment problems solved

Group holidays usually mean the lead booker will have to police payments being made towards the holiday on time. It’s often a thankless task given that you may not know every party member. It can make tapping people up repeatedly to pay money an awkward experience for all involved.

Not when you book with packed. We give every member of the party a separate booking link, so we know who pays what and who still owes. Leave chasing the stragglers for a final payment on payday to us and we’ll keep you posted.

Pressure to get it right

Although most decisions will be made in concert, the group leader may feel the weight of a successful holiday rests on them. This should never be the case. Booking a holiday should be an enjoyable process based on camaraderie and looking forward. Allow an expert group travel planner to take the weight off.
