Stop dreaming about seeing the world and start planning. It's less expensive and less complicated than you might think.

To show you how reasonable around the world airfare can be, we've compiled a list of 5 amazing RTW routes starting at less than $2,000.


A lot of people are under the impression that big multi-stop or around-the-world trips are just plain too expensive to even consider.

I want to be the first to tell you to stop that kind of talk. Because it simply ain’t true.

If this blog post should do anything it’s show you that you can take amazing trips to multiple destinations for only a little more than you would spend if you just, say, went to Japan and back.

Today I’ve compiled a short list of sample around the world itineraries that start at less than (as in “<“) $2000 American dollars, and that’s after tax with our fancy post-departure travel insurance to keep you protected in case of delays, cancellations or lost luggage..

These bargain routes were chosen for their amazing starting prices. Customizations may result in higher fares–but sometimes paying a little more is worth it to get what you want.

So without further ado, here are 5 RTW routes that start at $2,000 or less.
