How to find "sale" pricing on RTW

By gbw001 | Jun 08, 2019, 07:32 AM
Hi all.
I just received the Qantas email that the RTW fares are on sale until June 30. But when i click the “search Sale fares” button, it just goes to step one of the complicated OW RTW booking engine. I know from previous attempts It’s a tedious process finding what airport routes are needed, so is there any way to know WHICH dates / flights are the SALE fares? I can be flexible with dates, but how would i know if going in January (for example) saves me big, compared to going in November?

Save yourself some heartache (and a few thousand $) and just email the guys at Qflyer for a Finnair rtw deal. Chances are they’ll be emailing you with a deal within a month or two (if not immediately) as Finnair are pretty accomodating for rtw travel even when it’s outside their sale periods.

I paid $5900 with the PER-SYD-LAX and SIN-MEL-PER legs on QF metal and one internal Euro leg (HEL-LHR-HEL) included. It’s probably the only time I’d recommend a travel agent, they’re very knowledgeable on getting the best bang for buck from your travels!

Travel agent. Look at roundabout travel, they specialise in RTW tickets (same company who owns Qflyer who specialise in Qantas tickets, so both are probably appropriate).

Is a right PITA to do it yourself

I agree with the above. Travel agent is the best way to go for RTW and I never use travel agents otherwise. For RTW they have way more flexibility than online booking or booking with the airline. I used roundabout travel last time and couldn’t fault them
