1. BOOK AS EARLY AS YOU CAN
Round the world tickets are a tad different from your weekender inIbiza; you need to be on your game as early as possible to score the savings. Did you know you can book up to 11 months in advance? You do now. If not, you’re not reading this properly. Back to the beginning, and start again please.
2.LEAVE THE UK IN LOW SEASON
Remember the acronym: AMJS. We just made it up to highlight the months of the UK’s low season: April, May, June, and September. Alternatively choose from SMAJ, or JAMS, or JASM.
3.BUY ALL YOUR TICKETS BEFORE YOU GO
Buying flight tickets is like buying winning lottery tickets. You will be excited. You will cheer. You will whoop. You may even wee yourself, just a little bit. But it will also allow you to secure travel visas, as you’ll be able to prove you have an onward ticket. The bonus ball is that you can plan ahead.
4.CHALLENGE AN STA TRAVEL CONSULTANT
Reckon you can catch one of our travel consultants out with a tricky itinerary? We doubt it. They’re the best in the biz at finding the most cost effective ways to sort you out with a round the world ticket.
Contrary to popular belief, flying indirect doesn’t make it more expensive. Quite the opposite, actually. You’ll often find a nice stopover included in the ticket.
If you’re piling high on experiences, a button will appear on our consultant’s keyboard which will say: MAGIC DEAL. They’ll press it, sparks will fly, an impromptu dance might occur, and they’ll hand you the ticket of a lifetime.
7.PRE-PAY A MULTIFLEX DATE CHANGE PASS
The likelihood that you’ll want to change your flight dates is higher than a giraffe with its hands up. Give into the truth; snag a Multiflex Pass, and stuff some savings in your back burner.
8.ADD IN AS MANY DESTINATIONS AS POSSIBLE
Don’t miss out on your dream destination. Slapping on Fiji for an extra £100 might seem like a downer; but then, you’re visiting Fiji for £100… suddenly, it’s the bargain of a lifetime!
