National Geographical Traveller, October 2014

 

Stuart Lodge, director of roundtheworldflights.com, says: “Recently, South America (Peru and Brazil) and Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Thailand and to a lesser extent Burma) have boomed, but with the Australian dollar decreasing 30% against the pound in the last 18 months, we’re seeing an upturn in people wanting to go back Down Under.”

Lodge also says there has been a shift in how the round the world tickets are used. “The average time away has come down from eight to nine months a few years ago, to five to six months now. This started to happen around the time that university tuition fees were introduced in the UK.”

The tickets are also being used for shorter trips, particularly honeymoons and short sabbaticals from work.

The Sunday Times,  August 2013 - thrifty travel for grown-ups

 


Get there

Check out specialist travel agencies – the kind used by backpackers for

round-the-world trips. They could save you a packet on long-haul,

multi-stop flights and they’re particularly good for multi-leg itineraries.

For example, a one-month London – Hong Kong – Auckland –

Sydney – Bangkok – London jaunt costs from £1,273 with

Roundtheworldflights.com (020 7704 5700, roundtheworldflights.com),

yet the same BA and codeshare flights cost £3,950 if you book online with BA

 

MSN Travel August 2013 - Australia

 

 



A much needed devaluation of the Australian dollar – it has dropped 10% against the pound in the last

couple of months – should see Oz become more popular again for backpackers. Better connecting

flights to Darwin mean the Northern Territory’s Top End is emerging as an alternative to the well-travelled

East Coast route. Stuart Lodge from Roundtheworldflights.com says: “Darwin has a great mix of

rough-and-ready Outback character, hippy influence and Asian migration.'

 

MSN Travel August 2013 - Southern Laos

 

 

Vang Vieng – once notorious for its alcohol and drug-fuelled tubing scene – has calmed down following

government intervention. The buzz in Laos is now around the south of the country – particularly the

4,000 Islands in the middle of the Mekong River, where Don Det is a chilled out spot of hammocks

and homestays. Stuart Lodge from Roundtheworldflights.com also highlights “Pakse’s riverside bars,

fabulous trekking at great prices on the Bolaven Plateau, and arguably the region’s most incredible

temple - Wat Phu.

"Who hasn't dreamt of packing it all in for a grown up gap year? The you surf the web for round the world tickets before you stick your resignation letter in a shredder. For complicated multi-stop itineraries, it's often better to pick up the phone. They're experts at digging out special tickets, lesser known airline alliances and loopholes rarely found by website booking engines....but was a bargain £1080 (as opposed to £3430) when we called roundtheworldflights.com"

Grantourismo 2011
On behalf of Sarah, Anca and the HomeAwayUK team, and Terry and I, we are writing to thank you for your extraordinary support of our grand tour over the last year or so - your expert advice when it came to figuring out itineraries, your administrative support when it came to re-routing and ticket changes, your tireless support online, and your support in spirit - THANK YOU!
It was an extraordinary year that was both the best and worst year for Terry and I in some ways. It was a trip of a lifetime and the most rewarding of our travels so far in terms of the experiences we had and the people we met, but it was also the most challenging - we've never caught so many planes and worked so damn hard in our lives!
Now that the trip is over and we've had time to reflect as we've been tying up loose ends over the last couple of months, we have to say that we'd probably do it all over again if given the chance, and we'd do it all over with you and roundtheworldflights.com too!
Please also pass our thanks on to your team members there too who responded a couple of times when you were out of the office - their help was also greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to working with you in the future and don't ever hesitate to let us know if there's anything we can do for you.
Thanks again & warm wishes,
Lara & Terry, April 2011
