How to book a round the world trip in a lunch hour

In partnership with:

Just because you’re dreaming of the journey of a lifetime, doesn’t mean it should take ages to plan. In fact, it shouldn’t even take an hour, thanks to oneworld’s round the world trip planner. But wait, it gets better. Opting for this globe-trotting, round the world ticket can also save you tons.

How does it work? It’s easy as 1, 2, 3. Literally. All you have to do is:

  • Select your dream destinations.
  • Pick your flights.
  • Book your round the world adventure.

We’ll go into each step in more detail now.

1. Select your dream destinations.

The whole globe is a blank canvas for your round the world trip. Looking for inspiration? Check out our recommendations for round the world itineraries:

Exciting! To get started, pick a departure city. Say, London. Then, start adding to your itinerary from the 1,100-plus destinations on offer.

There’s a few ways to do that:

Are you a visual person?

You can pick cities on the map – this also lets you see where you can get direct flights to, and determine the best route across continents.

Tip: You can drag and drop cities to re-order your itinerary.

Know your airport codes by heart?

Impressive. That means you can build your itinerary in seconds by typing out the 3-letter codes back to back. For example, “LON REK TUN KWL LAS LPB LON” will take you on a round the world trip of iconic Star Wars shooting locations.

Like making lists?

If you know exactly what you want, you can add one city after another by entering them and hitting the plus sign.

Tip: Want to create multiple wishlists and itineraries? You can do so by creating an account and logging in.

Just FYI – you can pick as little as 3, and as many as 15 destinations. Once you’re done, add in the same city you started from – again, let’s say London – and the tool will take you to the next step.

2. Pick flights for your round the world trip.

Now it’s time to decide how to get there. With oneworld’s 13 member airlines, you’ve got almost the whole world covered. All you need to do is:

  • Choose a departure date.
  • Pick a flight from the list that pops up.
  • Repeat with your next destinations – the period between two departure dates shows how long you’ll be staying there.

Want to play around with dates, or pick another flight? You can make changes for each separate leg of the journey.

Tip: If you’d like to find your own way from city A to city B, you can tick “surface sector” next to it.

And good news – you’ll get two pieces of luggage free for each flight.

3. Book and travel.

Fill in a few details about yourself, choose how you’d like to pay, and that’s it. Done! Now reward yourself with something sweet.
