About Plotpackers

Let’s be honest – it’s all about the plot these days. And when it comes to travelling the world, it’s all about doing it affordably. Introducing Plotpackers.

Here at Plotpackers, we focus on bringing people together from all around the world to have once in a lifetime travel experiences that don’t break the bank. Each of our itineraries has been carefully crafted to give you the best possible value for money at an accessible price point. We pride ourselves on including all of your transport, accommodation and heaps of high-ticket activities on our tours while supporting small, locally owned businesses in the countries we operate in.

While the travel industry is notorious for its greenwashing, at Plotpackers we recognise that this isn’t the solution. We are committed to  increasing our sustainability efforts in proportion to the company’s growth rate. As such, we’re proud to be starting our sustainability journey with Ecologi. We have already supported both climate and community driven projects around the world such as protecting of the Matavén forest in eastern Colombia, supporting the Ouarzazate solar power project in Morocco – where solar power currently represents less than 2% of the energy mix – and distributing fuel efficient cleaner cookstoves in Kenya.

We are also proud disruptors of a male-dominated travel industry. Where the majority of huge travel companies that have a “limited budget” to offer creators are male owned, the majority of travel creators are female, which sounds a lot like a gendered pay gap. With a female founder and a forward thinking, diverse team, we are here to do things differently. With genuinely affordable, high value tours, our glowing reviews and our fair monetisation opportunities available to creators, we are here to do things differently.

About Our Group Tours

Our group tours are designed to take the planning and stress out of your travels, whilst getting to meet like-minded people from all over the world.  We organise everything for you, such as your trip guide, accommodation, transport in between destinations and heaps of high-ticket activities, meaning that your trip will be fully organised for you at the click of a button. Each itinerary has been designed to help you make the most of your time in each location whilst giving you a perfect balance between activities and free-time. We offer a range of group tours across the world, from Costa Rica to Mt Everest, and you’ll even find trips with us where some of your favourite creators will be attending too!

About Our Self Guided Tours

Our self-guided tours are designed to take the stress out of your travels, whilst having complete date flexibility. We’ll organise your accommodation, transport between destinations and plenty of high-ticket activities, so all you need to focus on is enjoying the adventure ahead. While you’re welcome to book with friends, if solo travel is more up your street, you can rest assured that you’ll be booked into social accommodations and activities, meaning that you’ll be able to make friends along the way! With our exclusive trade discounts, we’ve been able to bring these itineraries down to extremely modest, high-value price points, meaning that you’ll be able to enjoy your adventure on a budget.

ONE OF THE BEST TRAVEL GROUP TRIPS YOU WILL EVER GO ON IN YOUR LIFE!! What a fabulous two weeks spent making new friends, travelling around Costa Rica and having an absolute adventure whilst doing it! Plotpackers planned an incredible trip, with so many activities included. It was fantastic to have a whole two weeks activities, accommodation and transport all planned so we could all just go with the flow. The itinerary was carefully planned to give us a taste of everything Costa Rica has to offer and each activity was a success! Horseback riding up the jungle and zip lining towards a volcano was a particular highlight for me … and also the friendships made sat around the campfire! If you’re thinking of booking this trip just do it! Amazing memories to last a lifetime and a fraction of the cost it would take to do all the activities yourself.

I just got back from the 4 day Iceland tour with Plotpackers and Leonie! It was honestly amazing! The group was fab and everyone was very like minded and gelled so quickly! We had loads of amazing experiences and got to see all the famous Iceland sites (including the Northern lights!!! We were super lucky!) Would Highly recommend this tour, it was lovely to meet Leonie and travel with her and I am already looking forward to my next Plotpackers trip!

The best group trip ever! Genuinely had the most amazing time and so happy I booked this trip. So grateful to Louise for organising such an unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience. The Amazon lived up to everything and more and were some of the most exciting and happiest days I’ve ever had! You will not regret booking this trip (or any other plotpackers trip) I met some of the nicest people and cannot recommend this enough!

Frequently Asked Questions

Our self-guided itineraries are very similar to our group trips, only they are a packaged option for solo travellers and small groups on any dates you want. This allows you the flexibility to do things to your own liking, whilst having all your transportation, accommodation, and activities already sorted at a bargain price. These itineraries are great options for people looking to travel with friends or in a smaller group, as well as solo, without the hassle of having to book everything yourself or participate in a larger group. Some of the activities within these tours will have a guide included – but the trip as a whole will be self-guided.
Deposits are non-refundable, but they are flexible. If you are unable to make a trip you have booked, you are able to transfer your deposit to go towards the final balance of another trip up until 90 days before your trip start date.
If adverse weather conditions prevent any excursion from taking place, we shall use our best endeavours to either rearrange the event on a mutually convenient date, provide you / your group with an alternative event, or provide a voucher to you at the value of the activity to use on any future Plotpackers booking. In dangerously extreme weather conditions that result in cancellation of the tour itself (which would only ever be done with your safety in mind), a refund will be provided to you at the full cost of the cancelled elements.
YES. Our trips are welcome to anyone and we welcome friends on guided group trips and self-guided trips. Self-guided trips can also be arranged for you and your friends – just indicate the name of the friend you’re booking with on the order notes. We also do our best to provide complimentary private room upgrades if you book with a friend (or multiple friends) on our self-guided tours.
When you book a trip with us, you’ll pay a 10% deposit to reserve your spot. The final payment will be required 120 days before the trip’s start date, and if the final balance is not paid 90 days before the due date, your space will be automatically cancelled.
Flights are not included as people join from all over different countries, all over the world. This allows participants the flexibility to come early to explore on their own or carry on travelling after their trip.
Meeting points are typically the first night’s accommodation, or the airport if an airport pickup is included in your itinerary. This will be detailed in the full itinerary you receive after booking a trip with us.
You must be 18 by the first day of your trip with us. We have no upper age limit – our tours typically have a range of travellers aged 18-39 in attendance – but we welcome likeminded travellers both young and old to join us on the trip of a lifetime!
