Travel packages around the world are an amazing way to see the world and save a package. Many of my friends have made these trips with great success (including me), and everyone around the world has said that it is not only an economic way to see the places they only dreamed of, but also a life-changing event. . .
The most popular travel packages come from the airlines themselves (which is rarely the best deal) or from special travel agencies like Airtreks.com. Here's how it works: These agencies collect flight deals from two or more airlines that typically connect to major hubs around the world (the largest being San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, London, Frankfurt, Barcelona, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Sydney, Auckland, Delhi, Mumbai, Nairobi and Rio). Their logic is that when you buy in bulk, you will generally be priced lower than if you purchased them individually. For example, I bought a round-the-world ticket on the Sydney-Saigon-Singapore-Kathmandu-London-Toronto-San Francisco-Sydney route for less than $ 1,400. So far, excited? On Airtreks, they have a list of specials and they are currently offering a 10-country package deal for $ 2799. It's a two-way return ticket and you'll get more than twice the destination!
The best part of worldwide travel packages is that most service providers allow you to stay in transition countries, which is like transferring a free airline ticket to someone else. I've stopped for free in Austria, Singapore and Laos.
The last word for the wise: if you have bought a travel package around the world, try to pack only enough clothing to last a week. Remember that what you pack today will have to be carried over to next year, so keep it light!
