Previously Round The World (RTW) trips could only be booked by calling a Star Alliance airline or travel agent. Last week Star Alliance launched their online booking tool for RTW trips. The interactive and easy to use tool allows users to plan and purchase RTW trips on all Star Alliance airlines to all Star Alliance destinations.
The only drawback is that it does give clear instructions on what the rules are for each type of RTW fare in terms of segments and mileage however their are little ‘odometer’ type bars in the bottom right hand corner that show what you are allowed and if you have gone over.
All in all this appears to be a great tool and it will allow many people to customize and book their RTW trips.
