Round trip tickets are better you can get a round trip ticket for 3 months and still pay the same price for a 1 week visit

do you have to purchase 2 one way tickets if you want to start your vacation in on part of a country but leave in a different part of the same country ?

Thank you! This was so helpful! Almost went for a rtw ticket when one ways are definitely the best option for me!

Just recently started looking into what sort of budget our RTW would be in -- just a ballpark / minimum figures for flights -- and this was a question that kept popping up and now by happenstance I found your channel and you have answered this. Thank you! Subscribed :)

You're welcome! It really depend on where you want to go and for how long. You don't need a lot of money to travel though. It really depends on you and how adventurous you want to get. You can save a lot of money by staying in hostels or couch surfing. Also by eating street food and getting around by foot.

+bald headrasta I spent 9,500 CAD which is is just over 7,000 USD for 10 months in Africa, India, Europe and South East Asia. That included all of my flights, accommodations, food, activities, etc. So yes, absolutely! I seriously need to write an e-book breaking down this trip and the costs haha. What do you think?

Does 10k usd sound enough for dat trip?

What about booking around the world tickets with award miles?
Stamps600 (4 years ago)
Two cheapest ways are RTW ticket through a online/phone travel agent (go to multiple travel agents (airline consolidators, discount brokers and travel hackers, prices will be different) and credit card sign up bonuses for air miles. Don't run up debt on the credit cards, but the bonuses are enough for at least 8 tickets one way tickets. (Some airline consolidators won't deal with a person and only sell B2B. Some do person to person.)

Question: I have a list of cities I want to visit how to I come up with the cheapest itinerary of those cities in one trip. 25 cities!
Stamps600 (4 years ago)
Online travel agent. Call and email a lot of them. RTW tickets are much cheaper and  may be able to upgrade for a minimal fee to business class (maybe less than 25% of the whole ticket). The cheapest way would be through credit card sign-up bonuses and doing the tickets through air miles. Just don't use the cards past the $0-$100 requirements to get the sign up bonuses. 25 cities is a lot of traveling and hotel cost will be $40 a night for a hostel plus $40 for meals which is 5k for two months without airfare or activities. If most of them are in Europe the train would be the cheapest way. I think it is only $400 for a unlimited 3 month pass.

Sounds like a great trip! You can also take the train which could be a lot cheaper. I would look into that as well. I'm glad you're enjoying my videos. More to come.

Hi! So let's say I'm from London and I want to travel through Europe. I'll book in advance one way tickets from London to Paris in March, from Lyon to Rome in June, from Milan to Barcelona in September etc? And then I'll just need to be on those places at that time. That's what you would do? I'm glad I found your videos, thank you.

yeah she is but not just looks ...great personality !

I've never had a problem with purchasing one way tickets in any country but Indonesia. Even then, I was able to get through. As long as you have a copy of your itinerary, bank statements (so you can prove you have money) and an address of where you are going, you should be fine. Confidence is key. Be quick with your answers at customs and they will let you through.

That's great! Thailand is a really beautiful country. The landscapes, people, food. I love it there..especially when you go off the beaten tourist path. That is really great that you are so young and saving for travel. Good for you!
tazmun (6 years ago)
I thought the United States required travelers to other countries to purchase round trip tickets and one ways were not even an option???

I'm thinking of travelling to Chiang Mai (Thailand) first, I'm half Thai and know some of the language so I can get around there with more ease. But then I hope to travel a bit more spontaneously, after ;) I'm only 14 so I have a good amount of time to save up and i've been doing well so far :)
Kristen & Siya (6 years ago)
I'm glad this was able to help you. I never though choosing which ticket to get would be such a big deal either. It turned out to be the most frustrating part of planning my trip. So I'm glad I can share what I learned about it through all the research I did. A money pot! That's GREAT! Where are thinking of going?
M4Ri55A (6 years ago)
Wow, I'd never actually thought of what type of ticket I should get. :D You're so informative P.s I've started a "Travel" Money pot, thank you for inspiring me!
