There are currently low fares to several cities around the world!

Secret Flying has pieced together a round-the-world itinerary from Newark to New York, with plenty of stops along the way!  Here’s the routing:
  • Newark – London (via Reykjavik) on WOW Air
  • London – Dubai (via Istanbul) on Pegasus Airlines
  • Dubai – Singapore (via Manila) on Cebu Pacific
  • Singapore – Melbourne (via Kuala Lumpur) on Air Asia
  • Melbourne – Auckland on Jetstar
  • Auckland – Los Angeles (via Honolulu) on Hawaiian Airlines
  • Los Angeles – New York (JFK) on JetBlue

Along the way, you can stay in great hotels, like the Hyatt Regency London, or the Hilton Auckland!

With this itinerary, you’ll be flying ~28,000 miles!  So look to see how many miles you’ll earn for the flight, and credit the miles to an airline you use often.

You can check Secret Flying for how to book.  Or see my posts for how to use ITA Matrix to find sale dates.

Then book directly on each airline’s website, or through an online travel agency like Expedia, Kiwi, etc.

If you book a ticket with an online travel agency, you may be eligible for a refund within a short time of booking your ticket.  Check out my post on cancellation policies for airlines and online travel agencies for more details!

JetBlue Tips

Folks with the JetBlue Plus Card or JetBlue Business Card from Barclaycard get a free first checked bag for the cardholder and up to 3 companions on the same reservation when you use your card to pay for your ticket.

Keep in mind you have 24 hours to cancel a reservation if the flight is at least 7 days away.  So, you can take advantage of these extremely cheap fares and finalize plans later.

WOW Air Tips

Link:   My Review of WOW Air

I’ve written about WOW Air, a budget airline based in Iceland.  They’re a great option for no-frills flights, with good service and clean planes.

Remember, WOW Air charges fees for seat selection, large carry-on bags, and checked bags.  You’ll get the best deal if you can pack light.

And here’s my trip report from my visit to Iceland.  I learned Icelanders are some of the kindest folks in the world!

Hotel Information

If you book these flights, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending.

Check out my favorite Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, and Starwood hotels in Europe!

To find hotels that can be booked with points, I use Hotel Hustle (which even shows you if rooms are actually available!) or AwardMapper.

Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.  

Note:  If you prefer to book paid stays, check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals.  But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized!). Airbnb is another terrific way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays.  Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price, and how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.
