Considering an Around-the-World ticket

Jump to last reply

I've never bought a RTW ticket and would appreciate some info from those of you who have.

I have just retired and we are thinking about our trips for 2015. We's like to go to Europe in Sept/Oct (several options are vying for our attention, either a Paris (14 nights)/Amsterdam (5 nights) trip combo or an Italy trip (5 nights in Venice, three three-nights stays in smaller towns, 7 nights Rome). Then we'd like some time in SE Asia including at least in week in Bangkok and perhaps 5 nights in Hong Kong. November would be best for these destinations.

We would want to use Star Alliance (as I'm a million-miler) and we live in Seattle. While I'm aware that some places are better to buy RTW tickets than others, I'm not sure if it would make sense for us to fly somewhere to start our RTW trip. We would want Biz class tickets.

Any tips from those of you who use RTW tickets regularly would be much appreciated.

Don Topaz, are you out there?
