How will our RTW Concierge Service help you? Well by saving you £335
Not only are we committed to providing you with first class service during your world trip, we provide this with no administration fees! We have spent over 13 years learning all there is to know about round the world trips. And if there's one thing we've learnt, it is that no matter how organised you may be, something is bound to change. We have found on average, our customers require approximately six changes to their flight schedules during their journey at up to £50 per change. This could cost you around £300 with other travel companies, but with us, it's completely free! We also offer a 10% discount on our insurance for all our RTW passengers - that saves an additional £35. Thus saving £335 plus....

Ticket Changes once you have left the UK
We know that the ability to change dates on a round the world ticket is very important, especially if you are planning on being away for a long time. To make your trip as hassle free as possible, roundtheworldflights.com provides a free date change service once you're travelling (subject to seat availability in the same booking class). The only fees payable by you will be those passed on from the airline or other third parties if they apply.

What airline fees are payable ?
On many ticket types, there is no fee to change dates. On others there is a set airline fee. We will of course provide details of these fees when you book with us.


Why is the roundtheworldflights.com Free Date Change Service important ?
We are the original round the world travel company and we have sold over 80,000 round the world tickets, and since we set up in 1997, we were the first company to offer a centralised date change service for people on round the world tickets. Our customers have told us that some airline offices make an additional ‘service’ of anything between £25 and £150 when date changes are meant to be free, or add these service charges to the set fee if one applies. By using our service, you avoid these additional ‘service’ fees.

  • It isn’t always easy to get hold of airlines on the phone. They don’t usually accept or respond promptly to emails and phone calls involve lengthy waits on hold.
  • Depending on where you are in the world, you have no guarantee of airline staff speaking good English.
  • Staff at airline offices around the world are not always familiar with the all of the rules and intricacies of round the world tickets.


RTW tickets feature many different airlines on one ticket. Even when these are part of a well known airline alliance, the reality is that the ‘right hand doesn’t always talk to the left hand’. Airlines often use different reservation systems and often cannot change dates on other airlines, or see flights changed by other airlines. This means additional calls are needed to each carrier to co-ordinate your changes.

You can avoid all these potential headaches by booking with roundtheworldflights.com. Our customers tell us our free date change service is absolutely priceless, everything is processed by us in one place saving you time and money on your travels. Moreover, we don’t farm this process out to another office as some other companies do. Where possible, the consultant who made your original booking will look after you as you travel.

Just as is the case with booking your round the world ticket in the first place, the further in advance you do this, the better your chances will be of getting the dates you want!

Important Information

We will endeavour to get back to you ASAP (usually the same business day) and always within 72 hours. However please note that we cannot change any dates departing within 7 days and will also need at least 7 days notice to book any new dates – in these cases you must contact the airline directly . Please also note that we are only able to change certain airlines, and that sometimes a booking drops off our system and becomes embedded within an airline system after you have left the UK. In that case you MUST contact the airline directly. There are some fares that do not allow changes - ( please see your Booking Confirmation for details) and there are also some cases where although changes are permitted with the airline, they cannot be made by roundtheworldflights.com after you have left the UK. In these cases you MUST contact the airline directly.


How to change
If you want us to change your dates, please email your consultant and cc in This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your ideal dates and advise how flexible you are eg plus 3 days, plus or minus 1 day etc. For security reasons we will not do this over the phone. Please include your roundtheworldflights.com Booking Number and the debit or credit card you wish to use for any airline fees that will be noted on your booking confirmation (with expiry date and 3 digit security number). If you do this when you are in a place where you are able to access your emails regularly then it will definitely make your life easier too.

 

RTW airlines
Changing dates can be easy if you're in an airport too. On your RTW you will be spending a lot of time in airports - this can (not always) be the best time to plan and change your RTW. This is what most passengers do most of the time. Not on the phone (where service can be sporadic) but in person - Below are links to some of our more popular RTW carriers - they will give you the address of local airline offices.
