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!

Excellent service, very responsive and knowledgeable. Second time using these guys and all has gone well both times. Definitely recommend, see you again next year!
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.
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.
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
Would absolutely recommend. It made booking a group holiday so much easier and completely removes the hassle. will definitely be using again.
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!
Fantastic service for all aspects of the holiday. Made our leaves easy.
Very good service from the team at MySwft. Very responsive to messages and would highly recommend using them...I certainly will be again!
