Thats not a bad deal but you can get cheaper for a little bit of searching the net. The best way is to buy lots of individual one way tickets rather than an all in RTW ticket deal, I would say you might be missing out by not going to Australia (we're planning on working there for a year) but its up to you. We've managed to get the itinerary below for just under a £1000 just as an example of how cheaply you can do it our flight to Hong Kong cost £167 including taxes, makes you realise how much of a rip off our trains are, when you can fly 9000 miles for same price as peak ticket from Glasgow to London

By getting one way tickets we get to go where we want, when we want for much less money, and its was quite good fun finding the flights and researching the places we're going to stay.

London - Hong Kong
Hong Kong - Singapore
Singapore - Bangkok
Bangkok - Malaysia
Malaysia - Bali
Bali - Sydney
Sydney - Auckland
Auckland - Fiji
Fiji - LA
New York - London

A good Link to try is this one that gives lots of very cheaps flights around Asia

can you please give me some good links to get cheap one way flights, as im also doing a RTW tour early next yr, i think im going to book via STA travel, but if one way tickets work out cheaper, that would be the best option. . .

many thanks!

This one is pretty good it cover most of the world.

Where are you thinking of going? I found that my route changed as I found that I could go to different places on the way for less money, I figure I'm probably only going to do such a big trip again so I may as well make the most of it! eg I was looking for a one way ticket from London to Bangkok and the cheapest I could find with opodo travelocity etc was £300 and I managed to find a flight to Hong kong for £167 so it was just a case of finding flights from there to Bangkok. I ended up getting to Bangkok via Hong Kong and Singapore for less than going direct and we get to take in a few extra places on the way as I' planning to stay in in HK and Singapore for a week or so. ;)

if you're still struggling let me know and I'll give you a hand.

I'm planning my RTW trip at the moment, but can't decide which route is best! Advice would be welcomed!

Went to see STA travel & the lady was super helpful, they've quoted £1251 inc taxes.
Route is - London to Vancouver, LA to Fiji, Fiji to Auckland (NZ), Christchurch (NZ) to Melbourne (OZ), Cairns (OZ) to Singapore, Singapore to London.

The bits in-between will be travelled by bus or car or something else!
I've put 3 months to travel from Vancouver to LA, visiting Montana, San Francisco, Nevada, etc on the way. Then its a week or so stop over in Fiji, then 3-4 months in NZ, and 6 months to a year in OZ.

But now i've just been given the opportunity to go to Ecuador, and i'd like to do that in June. Could i fly from London to E'dor for my first stop, then go to Brazil or Canada and then carry on from there?
