--- In, "Wade Allsopp" <wade9@h...> wrote: The RTW fares can be a little complcated. For my trip I bought a
Global Exporer. Which is a similar price and basis to a RTW trip but
designed to go Europe-Asia-Australasia-(Africa)-Europe without going
RTW or
through the US. This might be one possibility for your Bulgarian
though she may have to buy it or start it from London. Theother
for her would be a RTW fare where she transited in The US. You dont
need a
US visa for this, though they give you hassle and you have to be
through immigration to the transit lounges etc, but it would break up
journet, she could stip over in Mexico, Central or South America or
if she can get a visa there. However most Oz - AMericaS Flights do
go via
LA. (I think One World may inclusde a Lan Chile flight fro,m OZ
aviads the US and goes to Chile )

My second section of the trip was with a Star Alliance RTW which I
bouht in

I personally find Star Alliance has better coverage than OW, esp if
you want
to cover Asia wherree Singapre and Thai are much more conveneint than
based Cathay Pacific. However there have been a couple of negatives
Star Alliance since then firstly Ansett went bust which was bad news
anyone contemplating internal flights in Oz. Secondly United is now
Chapter 11, so is likely to have to shrink itsnetwork at best and
might have to close completely - though I suspect that some successor
airline would pick up most of the pieces.

Re buying via an agent rather than airline. In London you will get
the same
prices. In a couple of markets eg Delhi and Bangkok, agents will
give you a
5% discount on the List price offered by the airlines. I prefer
going via
an agent as the bst ones are much better informed than the typical
staff, who in my experience anre most interested in sellings imple
business flights, rather than complicated RTW flights, which to be
are a pain in the neck for the airlines and a loss leader. If you
someone like Trailfinders in Lonodn you should be able to speak with
specialist in RTW fares.. If you really have someone which knows
what they
are talking about, you should be able to increase the value of you
signiciantly by clever routing.If you are based in the US , you might
to world out your exact routig with one of the US airlines on their
free line and then finalise the thing by calling an agent in London.
(Thoughwith discount telecom operators transatlantic calls are now

Im not sure either airline grouping will give you a sensible Delhi
option, you may have to go overland or buy a separate flight with
Royal Air

If you go Star laiinace for example you may wish to add a few more
legs, how
about taking the opportunity to see Fiji?, visit soime friends onthe
coast or pop down to central America?
