How to Plan for the Ultimate Round-the-World Trip

When you want to visit multiple countries on one trip, you’re planning a round-the-world (RTW) trip. These trips are as diverse as the people taking them, and the itineraries depend on the type of trip you want to take, as well as your chosen destinations. These two factors heavily influence your budget, as the general cost of living, activities, accommodations, food, and your overall preferences all affect prices of the trip.

There’s a RTW trip for just about everyone: adventurers, romantics, first-time travelers, and those who prefer learning over lounging. Accordingly, there are multiple ways to book the flights, and these methods cater to both the budget-conscious and to elite-status airline passengers. Then, once flights are booked, it’s time to budget for the details, including visas, departure fees, travel insurance, vaccinations, and more. If you have a little wiggle room, it may also be in your best interests to pad your budget for laundry services, sim cards, and Global Entry membership.

Planning and taking a RTW trip is an exciting way to see the world. You can find more tips and tactics in the infographic below.
