At Travel Tek we are able to offer substantial discounts on any of the published round-the-world fares offered by the major airline alliances such as Star Alliance, Oneworld or Skyteam. The RTW fares use the same general format as the published fares, but oftentimes with greater flexibility.
RTW fares offer a good value for the international traveler whose plans require stops on two or more continents. With most fare formats, the passenger can make up to 20 stops on up to six continents for one inclusive price. Travel can be in either the eastbound or westbound direction but may not contain any major backtracking. The discounted business class tickets do not carry with them any additional restrictions.
As a general guideline, RTW business class airfares will fall in the mid $4000s to upper $6000s for most itineraries. SkyTeam RTW fares tend to be slightly less than Oneworld or Star Alliance fares. The total mileage is a major determinate of any RTW fare.
For Circle Pacific or multi-stop itineraries to Europe, Asia, Australia, or South America we have more flexibility as far as mixing carriers and we often times obtain the greatest savings with these formats as opposed to a straightforward around the world business class structure.
