What is a Multi-stop flight?

If you're short on time or cash, a multi-stop might be the better option for you. With a multi-stop ticket, you can focus on one area of the world and fly to a few destinations on your trip. These tickets cost a little less than big Round the World trips, and you can choose from our popular itineraries or create your own route with our Round the World Travel Experts.

How do round the world tickets work?

In short, a round the world ticket with STA Travel enables you to discover multiple countries around the world with one all-inclusive flight itinerary. Simply speak with one of our knowledgeable round the world experts, let them know where you’d like to visit and they’ll do all the leg-work and find you the best possible deal.

How much does a Round the World ticket cost?

The cost of a Round the World ticket varies depending on the amount of stops and distance travelled. The more countries you fly to, the more it costs. Smaller multi-stops range from £339 to £999, but you can still travel around the world for under £1000 - just check out our Rock My World and Across the Pond routes! If you're a student or under 30 years old, you can take advantage of our exclusive BlueTicket fares to save more money or book further in advance to get the best deals.

I'm not a student, can I still book?

Absolutely! Students, teachers and fully-grown adults... we have Round the World flights for all adventurers! No matter who you are, we have the cheapest, most flexible and unique airfares on the market.

Can I change the flight dates on a round the world ticket?

Yes, with STA Travel's MultiFLEX passes, you can make easy date changes on the road without having to worry about expensive airline fees. Just ask us which tickets are eligible for the pass and choose the different options available. While you're away, contact our Global Travel Help team, available 24/7, with any problems or changes to your booking.

Do I have to fly around the world?

No. Some tickets will take you all the way around the world in one general direction, but if you're not into that, you can go out and back the same way or just casually circle a continent or two. We even do one-way multi-stops for when you're headed Down Under for a working holiday and want to explore a few countries on the way.

Can I use the £49 flight deposit on Round the World tickets?

Yes you can! To give you more time to save for your trip, guarantee the lowest price seats with a £49 deposit and pay the rest before you fly. Ask us which of our tickets are eligible.
