Round the World Airfares take advantage of airlines that work together within the various airline alliances that exist. Star Alliance, One World and Sky Team for instance are all alliances of airlines that have teamed up to offer travellers a way to purchase one ticket that will fly them around the world. These airfares can be more expensive than purchasing individual tickets, but they often include stopovers in major cities that would otherwise be difficult and expensive to visit.
Some popular destinations that can be travelled to on a round the world airfare include Bangkok, Thailand; London, England; Los Angeles, California; and Sydney, Australia. Keep in mind that airfares may vary depending on the time of year, so it is important to do some research before booking.
