I'm really up for travelling this summer , and ive got all the money needed , I just don't know what's the best way to arrange all the flights , ive had a quote from a company called travelbag but I feel im a bit tied down because I need to arrange all the flight times and dates although the price isn't bad ,
Is it best just to go to your first destination and move on from there without committing yourself?
im hoping to vistit the following places ,
Hong Kong - Singapore - Tokyo - Sydney - Perth - ( then on to the states , havent planned destinations yet )
can anyone please help me !!
You could try Trailfinders. You need to know where you want to go to book the ticket, but can book "dummy" dates for your flights & then you can change them once you are out there, once you know when you want to travel. I think it does cost around £10 or sometimes free to change flights. Otherwise try Sta travel (I haven't used them but quite good from what I've heard). Or BA. There are quite a few companies who offer round the world tickets & I assume they all run pretty much the same. i think you would be better off popping into one of the places though & talking it through with someone so you know what's going on & how much you are realistically going to have to pay.
Yep trailfinders and travel nation are pretty good to help with advice and do RTW tickets - website links are as follows: -
There is also www.roundtheworldflights.com
and there's a bootsnall website which quotes RTW tickets in US$'s I think it is www.bootsnall.com
Best of luck
It'll depend where you are leaving from which websites are able to help out the most. Bootsnall uses the same RTW ticket booking system for example that Travellerspoint does (don't forget to check ours out too under the TOOLS tab ) and although it is good, it is developed with the US as a departing point in mind.
Companies based in the UK if you are departing from the UK might be able to do better.... specials etc. aside.
For this type of itinerary one of the airline alliance tickets wil be ideal. I assume that Travelbag suggested that is what you do. I so you do generally select the dates, but can chnmage them as you like with no fee. Changing the routing generlaly costs about £50 so u do need to decide where you want to go.
