If you're looking to spoil yourself with the ultimate Christmas gift, you may want to start packing your bags. One travel website is giving away Round The World flights for mega cheap.
Flytrippers, a new Canadian flight deal website, has done the hard work for every traveller out there with a thirst for travel and an empty wallet. By combining low priced one-way deals from all over the world, the deal-finder is helping you accomplish what very few people can actually afford. The RTW ticket comes in at US$ 950, or C$ 1,211. And it's an incredibly good deal.
First off, Round the World tickets are hard to come by, and when they do happen to pop up, they're expensive. As a basic rule, the more stops, continents visited or miles flown, the more expensive the ticket. Generally, the bare minimum lead-in rate for the most basic RTW tickets departing from Canada is around $1800-$1900CAD for economy class.
Have you packed your bags yet?
Flytrippers' RTW ticket will take you across four continents over a month of travel. You'll stop in London, United Kingdom; Milan, Italy; Athens, Greece; Singapore; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Honolulu, Hawaii; and back to Canada, according to their website. They're are also short layovers in Reykjavik, Iceland and Osaka, Japan.
The majority of these flight segments are on Ultra Low-Cost Carriers, which usually don't allow for checked baggage (unless you're willing to pay an extra fee. The trick? Pack light and pack everything in your carry-on.
