What is a Round the World Flight?

With options available across different cabin classes from economy & premium economy to business or first class – there is a ticket to suit your travel style and budget. Make the most of your next trip with a round the world flight & discover somewhere new you haven’t been before.

Rules of Round the World Flights

As with any airfare there are rules & conditions involved which one of our experienced Travel Associates consultants can take the guess work out of, making your next holiday easy. The main rule with round the world flights is that travel must start & end in the same country & follow the same direction (around the world) – i.e. east to west or west to east. From New Zealand many travellers pass through Asia or the Middle East on the way to Europe & then return to home via North America or vice versa. There are many variations & possible routes which will take you around the world in as little as 3 stops, up to 15 stops or across as many as 6 continents. 

Round the World Fare Types

Depending on the cities you're visiting, there could be multiple fare types to suit you. If flying with one airline you will need to travel via their hub city (e.g. Dubai with Emirates) & your route options may be limited due to the destinations they or their partner airlines service. Oneworld, Star Alliance, & SkyTeam bring together the worlds leading airlines & their flight networks - giving you greater options for your next trip. Their pricing is based on either the mileage traveled or number of stops taken.
