Have you talked to a travel agent instead of the airlines or online sites? My sister booked a round the world trip over 4 months and used a travel agent (Flight Centre – do you have that where you live?).

Hi @aussiejenn:  First as you relatively NEW to WBee… let me say a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

My first thought was identical to the one presented by @KingsDaughter:  an “Around the World Ticket” / “Open Jaw Ticket” which will give you maximum flexibility on how you choose your route to and from, as well as dates etc.

I will send you a PM with additional info / resources.

I would highly suggest you speak to a travel agent.  You don’t have to book through them but it’ll give you an idea.  I like to book things myself generally but when it’s complicated, why not let someone else do the work.

@aussiejenn:  “I could go Syd-LA-NYC but would have to go thru London, and somewhere in Asia and back to Syd.

If travelling through Asia is a possibility, have you considered the Maldives?

@aussiejenn:  I use Matrix ITA software to research flight costs. What you’re looking for is a multi-city or multi-destination ticket. You can totally buy those directly from airlines, or from airfare websites like Priceline and Kayak. I’d recomend checking out ITA first to see all your options, it seems to include every airline out there! Good luck!

FWIW, we flew from Houston to Sydney for our honeymoon, with a layover in LA. There weren’t too many airline options between the US and Australia. So I’d probably first look into which airlines offer flights from Australia to the US, and then see where else those airlines fly. Like, does Qantas offer flights to Bora Bora? Or United?

@aussiejenn:  We use hipmunk.com to compare flights with multiple stops.

Edit: But it seems to hate French Polynesia for some reason.  I found a $3000 RT ticket but there’s only one option.  Maybe it’s a little too early for the dates you are looking at?  We’re flying to the UK in December and every few weeks more flights and airline options open up.

It may be worth it to use a travel agent for the flights because they have better software and experience in planning those types of trips imo.  We are booking our main flights from Florida/MCO to London and back to Florida/MCO from Amsterdam using Hipmunk.  But we had to use a different site (small local airports in Europe) to plan our flights from the UK to Paris and Paris to Amsterdam in order to get the best prices.
