Planning RTW. Who's Serious?
I am looking for some folks to help me beta-test a trip planner. I need people who are actively looking for prices on RTW or multi-stop (4+) flights. Does not matter where you're starting or finishing, but you should be looking to start within the next year.
Anyone interested, shoot me a PM or reply to this thread.
I'm just in the throws of planning a rtw trip starting this October just 6 months this time.
When I planned our 12 months trip I did lots of research with point to point multi airline costs and compared this to the rtw tickets with different alliances.
You can get good deals with the rtw tickets but read the small print.
If you want to change a date or the route it can be expensive. We found at the time Virgin Alliance were the cheapest if it came to changing anything.
We added on to this the odd flights domestic and international.
In additions to that even when you have the best price check out with the travel agents for deals I managed to get money off and ended with a great price.
Also if you want to travel to Africa or South America the prices go up, standard routes obviously are the cheapest.
Our next trip is non standard so I expect it to be more expensive but I'll still look for saving money.
Best of luck and keep safe.

As for comparing RTW Tickets, BootsnAll has researched and published 3 reports in the past year that compare all the ways of doing and RTW. Alliances, companies, and DIY
Lastly - we update our RTW Travel guide several times per year, and we created a little graphic that compares the different ways of flying RTW.

I will say that there is no right way - and we recommend all services to folks, depending on what there needs are.
Cheers and let us know if we can help!
