Should I buy an Around-the-world ticket or should I pay one-way budget fares to save the most amount of money?
Here are the deets. I am travelling one year from Canada to Australia, NZ, Fiji, Indo, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, India, Nepal, Vietnam. What would be my cheapest option... A one-year round the world ticket under star alliance or something of the equivalent, or budget one-way fares from point of departure?
Can someone please lend their experience in my direction
I'd * definitely * recommend you buy tickets as you need them, primarily because whenever I've travelled for extensive periods, my travel plans have been just that, plans. And plans invariably change, usually for the better! You meet people, have new ideas, circumstances change and opportunities arise. You've got a year: be free and flexible. Oh, and you might save yourself some money too! over 7 years ago
Hi Kailey, I'd agree with Simon, plans change, particularly over a year, so you'll need to keep some degree of flexibility. One company you might want to check out is http://www.Airtreks.com. They specialise in around the world airfares and it's a good place to get a quote so you can compare. Cheers over 7 years ago
If you are heading to SEA then check out AIR ASIA airlines as they have flights around SEA especially Indo, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, India, and Vietnam and they are some of the cheapest I've seen.
