MORE ON ROUND THE WORLD



Airtreks and Air New Zealand

If you would like information on how to plan your senior round the world trip, Airtreks might be just the ticket.  You can fly ‘Round the World’ on Air New Zealand starting from Los Angeles or San Francisco. Visit the best of the UK, Asia and the Pacific Islands en-route to New Zealand.

Fly out one direction, and come back in the other.  Ride the London Eye, shop in Hong Kong and bungee jump in Auckland. Want to snorkel? You can stop off in the Cook Islands in the South Pacific. That’s a truly global experience for the senior traveler.

Wikitravel Is Helpful, Seniors

Wikitravel is a great site for Round The World travel information.  It offers information on ticket types, conditions, airlines, as well as ‘helps’ for planning your trip.

It sounds complicated to me but if you’re willing to invest your time, the benefits you’ll receive from using these kinds of tickets can be significant.  Read on for an In-Depth Guide to Buying your ticket .  It is a time investment, seniors and you will find that it will take  some work to put together a round the world trip and you will need to enlist the help of a travel agency.

Just ask Chris Guillebeau who travels the world and is said to be a “master of clever air travel.”  This site can be very helpful for the novice traveler with a number of super suggestions to get the job done. You will discover that each airline alliance has its own rules for how the ticket works as Guillebeau points out.
