If looking at the news these days has you feeling low, you have two choices – you can stay glued to the television until there’s something good to report, or you can get out and make something good happen. We are, of course, advocating for the latter – and we think one of the best ways to create your own good news is by getting out and seeing the world.
Easily one of the best things about traveling right now is that there are exceptional deals available. Airlines and hotels (among other travel-related industries) are cutting prices in order to lure travelers back out of their economic-slump-induced hibernation, so if you can take time out for a trip right now you’ll be in for some amazing discounts. And that includes RTW tickets.
Here are the February RTW ticket deals – these prices are good through February 28, 2009.
- Los Angeles – Hong Kong – Bangkok – Singapore – Bali (Denpasar) – Los Angeles from US$1195 (plus taxes)
- Los Angeles – Sydney – Christchurch – Tongatapu (Tonga) – Nadi (Fiji) – Honolulu – San Francisco from US$1649 (plus taxes)
- New York – Beijing – Hong Kong – Singapore – Bangkok – Bombay / Mumbai – Nairobi – Cairo – Athens – Rome – Copenhagen – Berlin – London – New York from US$2999 (plus taxes)
These itineraries are just a sample to get your mind going – they might be just what you had in mind, but if they’re not exactly where you wanted to go that’s okay, too. You can plan your own customized RTW trip in seconds and visit just the cities you want.
