What is your hot tip for a RTW?
Despite my last answer, quality over quantity. The temptation is always to see and do as much as possible, but be realistic with your time-frame and budgets. Often it's better to do fewer stops and do them really well, than a whole lot of travelling with hardly any time to actually enjoy your destination. Take a quality camera with you! Pay the extra to get a flexible fare, it's worth it in the long run.

Why you should book your RTW trip with me/STA?
Having put together and been on some of the most awesome Round the World itineraries, I know them inside out! No matter how obscure, I got you covered!

Hey Tash, where are you from?
I am originally from the UK, but now call the Sunshine Coast, Australia home

My top 3 travel destinations are...
Egypt, Jordan, Bruges

What would be your craziest RTW (Round The World) itinerary?
Where do I start... the possibilities are endless! My dream RTW would be a combination of some of our best land components as well as flights - Flying from Australia to Auckland, then Auckland to LA via Tahiti, over to New York then across to London, via Iceland - a rad little European adventure with Contiki followed by the Trans Siberian train from Russia to China, stopping off in Mongolia for a G Adventures Local Living Experience. Then, back home to plan my next trip, and yours too!

Flexibility when booking so we can get you the best flights, and then as you go so that you can get the best experience! We can get you an unlimited Multiflex Pass that will allow you to change your flights as much as you want - you don't want to be tied to dates if you're having an amazing time.

STA's exclusive Blue Ticket fares make your RTW trip next level. Before you go, you can layby your trip (that's right, all of the flights and your tours too!) and pay it off up to 10 weeks before you go. The tickets are also super flexible, so you can change the date and sometimes the destinations of your trip Booking RTW's is my favourite thing ever, and I would love to help you piece together your dream adventure.
