Hi Everyone :)

I'm planning to go travelling in around april time but at the moment I have no idea how to go about it :S (if not April just before xmas)

does anyone know where i can buy one of the tickets that have around 6 stops on?

Also Im going to be travelling on my own and being a 20 year old girl im slightly nervous of going it alone! if anyone fancies joining me please comment!

I'd like to go: Australia, New Zeland, Thailand, Hawaii, America

Thanks xxxxxxx

You mean a RTW (Round the World) ticket. Given your age, you should pop into a branch of STA Travel, they often have (or had, I haven't been into one for ages, since I'm sadly now 31) great deals for under 25s. Back in the day I purchased a London-Bangkok-Singapore-Melbourne-Auckland-Los Angeles-New York-London ticket with them and it was a great deal. Also check on sites like Kayak and ebookers as you can look up "multi-city" itineraries, although with 5 or 6 planned stops a RTW ticket is almost certain to be cheaper.

Happy planning!

I'm planning on going to live and work In New Zealand for a year in December alone. As i have friends that have done the trip before they are helping me organise what to do. So now i'm just saving up now.

Yeah I´m also planing on going to New Zealand and Australia in August/September and I don´t have any idea where to start what to see...

I only know that I have one year time :)

... and It would be nice to not travel alone...

Hi :)

Not sure if this is still relevant but I am travelling out there mid April 2014 on my own, I would like to travel up to Cairns from Brisbane and also visit Sydney at some point too. I've never travelling on my own so the butterflies in my stomach will be soon approaching :)

Let me know if you fancy joining me as I am going alone (first time!) and will be using Oz Experience from Brisbane to Cairns :)
