What do round the world tickets with just one or two airlines have to offer?
Well, if you know what to expect from RTW flights with airline alliances you've already got a pretty good idea.
With alliances you plan your whole trip around a specific group of airlines according to their mileage restrictions, stopover rules and routing regulations.
A bargain deal but sometimes a bit too rigid and regimented — especially for those adventurous backpackers who don't want to follow the crowd at every turn.
Then why limit yourself even more with just single or partner airline round the world flights?
A lot of the pros and cons of backpacking around the world on tickets with the big airline alliances are also true when you travel on tickets with just one or two airlines.
So, if you haven't read up on flying with a group of airlines yet you might want to do that first. You get a basic rundown there on how it all works.
But here are a few other things to consider.
If you're not too thrilled with the idea of having to work your travel plans around a bunch of airline rules and regulations, you do have another option.
And not only is it completely customisable but it can be the absolute cheapest round the world deal going.
