Which of these 5 Round the World routes is right for you?

A Round the World trip is The Dream. Ask anyone who’s ever thought about strapping on a backpack, and they’ll tell you that if they were handed a Round the World ticket, they’d be off in a flash. And it’s easy to see why.

A jaunt around the world is the ultimate journey; your opportunity to travel through countless countries, experience different cultures, and see what this big ol’ globe of ours has to offer.

It’s the kind of trip where you could be lazing on a beach in Thailand one week and trekking through the Amazon the next. You could find yourself munching on an In-N-Out burger in LA on Monday, and chowing down on nshima in Zambia on Thursday.

From deserts to mountains, beaches to backwaters, savannas to skyscrapers – a Round the World trip can pack them all in, and then some.

This could actually be you. Yep, you. Right there.

Which Round the World route is right for you?

With so many possibilities, it can seem a bit daunting trying to whittle them all down to make the perfect route around the world for you. But don’t stress!

Our Air Product Executive and all-round flight guru Ali Dale has picked five of her favourite Round the World routes, so that whatever your budget, whatever you want to see, and whatever you annual leave allowance, you can find a way to make that Round the World dream a reality.

1. Best route if you’re on a budget

There’s a dirty rumour that to get round the world, you’re gonna need a lot of money. Not true, people! Just take a look at the Kwikfire Kiwi.

Our cheapest Round the World route, this little gem will take you from the UK to Dubai, all the way down to Auckland, wayyy across to Los Angeles, before flying you out of New York back to good ol’ Blighty once again – all from just £1,049. Seriously!

I love this route because it’s screaming at you to take an American road trip! Ain’t no better way to get from LA up to The Big Apple than by hitting the road and living out the road trip dream you’ve harboured since watching Saved by the Bell (go on, admit it).

2. Best route if you want to see it all

Do you like your travels BIG? Then look no further than The Trekker. This route will take you across four awesome continents, leaving you room for some epic overland adventures, too. Ready to find out where The Trekker will take you? OK, deep breath…

Dubai, Bangkok, Singapore, Brisbane, Sydney, Christchurch, Auckland, Los Angeles, New York, Lima aaaaand Rio de Janeiro, before taking you back to the UK.

Want your Round the World trip to take in Rio? No problem!

Yeah. I know. Pretty freakin’ good.

3. Best route if you’ve only got a month

OK, so you want to take on a big trip, but you don’t have long to spare? Not a problem. We’ve got a route that makes it all as easy as a walk Round the Block.

Perfect for the uni Easter break, or to use your four weeks annual leave on, this route will immerse you in all things Asia.

Take Ali’s advice, and spend one week in Sri Lanka, a few days in Singapore, one week in Delhi and 10 days relaxing and partying in Thailand. I can think of worse ways to spend a month…

4. Best route if you’ve got a year

Got a year to spare? First of all, lucky you! Well jel’, and all that. Secondly, REALLY lucky you, cos’ you get to take on our mightiest Round the World route yet called, appropriately, The Mighty Mighty.

This beast of a route will take you to core Round the World stops: Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the US of A.

All aboard! A stop in Australia is a Round the World staple

Ali says, “You’ve got a year, so take your time in each place. I recommend spending four months in Thailand to make your money last longer. Then head to Australia for three months, New Zealand for two, take a couple of weeks in beautiful Fiji, before finishing up with 6 weeks in the USA.”

5. Best route if you want to do something a bit different

Already been to the staple backpacker destinations? Then take a look at Wild at Heart.

This route will give you a taste of Africa and some lesser visited Asian spots, taking in Johannesburg, Nairobi, Bangkok, Hanoi and Beijing, all from just £1079.

3 tips to get the most from your Round the World ticket

1. All our Round the World routes are just suggestions – we can basically tailor make any route you want!

2. The routes can last as little or as long as you want. You just have to be back in the UK within a year (or 18 months, in some cases).

3. Fun fact: our average Round the World customer changes their itinerary five times once they’re on the road. So before you leave the UK, it’s worth grabbing a Multiflex Pass. It means that for just £99, you can make changes as much as you like. So if you fall in love with Thailand, for example, you can delay your flight for a few weeks. Run out of cash? Bring your flight home forward. Simple.


Fancy a Big Trip of your very own? DO IT! Check out more of our favourite Round the World routes, and then book an appointment with one of our Travel Experts to get that dream trip booked!

    Hi,
    I’m looking to travel in late Sept for 6 months & there are lots of countries on my list of places to see but I am not sure what is feasible in terms of time and logistics.

    I woud particularly like to do the Trans Siberian Railway journey from Moscow to Beijing, spend some time in China, ferry across to South Korea to visit a friend and maybe seeing some of Japan.

    I wouldn’t mind including a short trip to Myanmar and Sri Lanka but they are both in the opposite direction and I would also like to see some of South America…..miles away. Arrrgh – spoilt for choice!

    Any advise on if this is doable or a more sensible option??

    Many thanks.
