I have blogged before about the RTW tickets you can get with Skymiles. For this deal you will need to call the round the world desk to get this 10% discount (btw, these reps are very very good and know the partners better than most mainline reps).
That said, is this a good deal? For me the idea of a round the world trip in coach is not my idea of a dream vacation even at 10% off. It would be one thing to be on the “Amazing Race” and fly around the world in coach, but another for fun. For me, business class would be the way to go.
Another point to keep in mind of buying vs RTW award vs a std award ticket is with stopovers and open jaw tickets you can, with that many Skymiles, get a bunch of trips booked as well that are not bound to 1 ticket.
You have until the end of March to take advantage of this discount so you have some time to think and plan and see if this is for you and you can find some value – René (also sorry about the re-do; hit publish rather than save draft in progress… some days-ugg)
PS – I found some new fun travel swag
I may just give away tomorrow on the blog!
