How do round the world flights work?

A round the world flight enables you to discover multiple countries around the world with one all-inclusive flight itinerary. If you want to go for one month or over a year, we can make that happen! Generally, Round the World fares are valid for 12 months – but if you’ve only got the ‘standard’ four weeks annual leave or want to travel on your uni break, you can still travel the world.

Multi-Stop Flights

Fancy stopping off in a few cities within the same region? Then maybe a multi-stop or multi-city flight would be better than an all-inclusive round the world ticket. Check out our sample routes or contact us to create your own!

How much are round the world tickets?

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.
