Hi,

I have booked my RTW trip with STA and have a couple of questions for anyone who has done this before...

Does anyone know how easy it is to rearrange flights as I have 9 in total for a 12mth trip!?

How do I do this?

How much notice do I need to give before I change flights?

Is it easier to organise this before I go? When I booked back in Feb they couldn't book flights after Dec 30th 2005 and i'm not due home until Aug 06!

Is there a cheap way to check flights once organised i.e. online? STA recommend phoning the UK to check this - over 1 year this seems like an unnecessary cost!

I'm leaving on 2nd August, any ideas when I?ll get my tickets and discount cards?

Any help, insights or useful hints would be good!

Thanks

Hey there,

We did an STA RTW last year and decided to change one flight (only a data change). It literally took 10 minutes. We were in the Vienna airport anyway and just walked up to the airline's desk and got them to move our flight home back 1 week. Of course, if the flight had been full, this would have been impossible.

If I were you, I'd make any changes as soon as possible for that reason. I'm not sure what the deal is if you actually want to change the places you fly though - I think you would incur a charge for that.

Cheers, Peter

It's hard to pin point exactly when I'll want to be moving on from places but I will certainly try to do this before I go.

Thanks for your help!
