Hi everyone

Like lots of people I am trying to ensure that I get the best deal for my RTW flight ticket, so was just wondering if any other travellerpointer's have a good story about a great deal they got with a company?

My route is:


I am currently being quoted £1350 by Travelmood, £1496 by STA Travel and £1478 by Roundtheworldflights.

Does this sound about right?

I went with travelNation and they charged me £1300 for the following route:

UK-NY-San Fran //overland//LA-Auckland //overland// Christchruch- Melborne //overland// - Brisbane - Bali - Singapore //overland// Bangkok - UK

This is for June 2008 and the prices go up by c.£200-£400 from 1st July onwards.

Instead of doing the 'normal' route i.e. From the UK heading east, maybe consider doing the states first. The two main advantages of this are:

  • you are always following the sun and miss the moonson seasons
  • You do the expensive places first and finish in Asia when you can live until your budget runs out.

Hope it helps
