Archives: How Round-the-World Tickets Really Work

Round-the-world fares are a great choice for those that want to travel the world without being on a set flight schedule, and it’s a good choice for your wallet, too, as anyone who has tried to purchase open-ended or refundable tickets or one-way international flights well knows. Prices can be ridiculously high prices and so are those change fees, so this is where RTW tickets are a good choice.
