Everything You Need to Know About a Round-The-World Trip
When you see the world via pictures and/or through the eyes of others you don't experience local activities, see the depth of color, hear the sounds, smell the odor nor taste the regional food as it is actually cooked. These experiences are what drives many travelers to circumnavigate the globe. If you would like to live these experiences, and more, now is a great time. Keep in mind, the more complex a trip you embark upon, the longer and more taxing it will be.
Where to start?
Like any trip, round the world trip needs to begin with booking round the world tickets in business class, first class or economy class, whatever suits your budgeting requirements. To help be more cost effective you should to know how many RTW packages are sold. There are airline coalitions, involving many airlines joining together to offer the best and most flexible trip routing for the most reasonable amount. This ensures you are routed through all the places you wish to visit with less hassle than finding and scheduling all the flights on your own.
Generally, there are some "rules" when planning your trip. You want to follow one global direction, which is East to West, remember, no backtracking and your start/finish should be in the same country. Another helpful tip, book all your flights before departure, albeit you can perform changes on them later, though you should know, doing so may incur additional charges.
When to embark on such a trip?
You cannot expect ideal weather for all your stops. So, it is better if you make a list of things you most want to do on your trip. Once your list is made you need to research to find the time best suited to your preferred activities. No matter if you want to ice skate in Vienna, explore the scenic beauty of Peru, swim with the sharks off Western Australia, go on a Himalayan trek or something else that has taken your fancy and you want to make it the highlight of your trip. Your trip can be planned around the time that would be most feasible for your activities. Be mindful of the fact that it is likely you will land in some regions with an uninviting climate in order for you to reach other regions during their best climatic conditions in sync with your itinerary.
How much time do you need?
Don’t be surprised if you come across an offer of whipping around the world in a weekend though you would be flying non-stop. The minimum time most reasonable RTW tickets is as short as ten days. This will still be insufficient for someone who is looking for an elaborated experience touring the world. You should try to take at least two months to fully enjoy this tour the way it should be. However, for the "ideal" experience and to fully enjoy the different regions, countries and ethnic areas you will encounter, an ideal period would be between six and twelve months for your RTW trip.
What destinations should be be included in your trip?
Thinking of the classic RTW tickets, which happen to be the least expensive, they are going to have a few big cities as part of the itinerary. It could be London, Bangkok, Sydney, LA. Keep in mind that any offbeat destination included in your RTW ticket will cause the cost of the ticket to rise, the more out of the way the more the cost rises.
Remember the season, enjoyment, cost and even comfort are all tied together in an endeavor such as this. To ensure full enjoyment of your round the world trip, make sure you evaluate everything before you go to book your ticket.
