This is the itinerary from CALGARY. Click to see our around-the-world itineraries from 7 other Canadian cities for the month of August 2018.
Want to experience the trip of a lifetime and go around the world? Here is a flight itinerary for only $1,517 to explore 7 amazing destinations, including some of the world’s most popular! Yes, if you travel light, you can go all around the globe… at a very low price.
At Flytrippers, every day we curate great flight deals… and give you great tips on this blog. Usually, our deals are pretty straightforward: heavily discounted roundtrips to a specific destination (just one at a time). But we also build amazing around the world itineraries every now and then, for those who want an epic adventure!

We build our “around the world” itineraries so that they can be useful to as many Canadian travelers as we can, so that means we usually go for a trip length of 4-6 weeks. This time, it is for 4 weeks and the next one will be a bit longer… and it will also have something very special (subscribe to our free travel newsletter to make sure you get all our great travel content… and amazing flight deals too!)
Today, our Calgary around-the-world trip costs $1,517, which is actually less than what most people will pay for a boring flight to only one destination, either because they don’t know how to find cheap flights (we’ll be publishing a very useful guide on the subject soon, you don’t want to miss it), because they don’t prioritize low prices (what do we mean? check out our blog this weekend) or because they are obsessed with luggage.
So yeah, the funny thing (or the sad thing) is that a lot of people don’t know about flight deals and will pay that same price just to go to Asia (or even worse, just to go to Europe). We help you go around the world for the same price (including both Europe and Asia, of course).

Traveling really doesn’t have to be expensive if you don’t want it to be (and if you know how to) and that’s exactly what our mission is at Flytrippers: help Canadians travel more, for less, thanks to our dozen daily flight deals from your city… and our tips on this blog!
Read on for all the details but essentially, we’ve combined great one-way deals from all over to help you accomplish what very few people can do: go all around the world in one exceptional trip!
By the way, if you want an epic trip that will cost you this price in total, don’t go around the world. Pick one of the world’s cheapest travel destinations, like Vietnam. Traveling isn’t expensive when you make the right choices, most importantly the choice of your destination. For example, we will have a complete guide on how to spend a month in Vietnam for $1,500 all included, check out our blog next week.
How Does It Work?
So here is our flight deals mashup that gives you an itinerary to go all around the world for $1,517 if you can travel light. By the way, it isn’t harder to travel light for 4 weeks compared to 1 week… you just need to get used to it (and to do some laundry). We’ve done it ourselves for month-long trips, you can definitely do it too. Remember that doing some laundry will cost you about $5 but plane tickets with baggage included will literally cost you hundreds and hundreds of dollars more… you do the math!
Some of these flight segments are on Ultra Low-Cost Carriers (ULCCs), so pack light and instead bring back amazing memories of a unique trip that will make you part of the very select group of people to have experienced going all around the world in one trip! Again, we’ve traveled for a month with a ULCC-sized bag, so if you want to, you can definitely do it for a month and experience an epic trip without breaking the bank.

The takeaway from all this is that plane tickets have never been cheaper in the history of air travel (and 2018 will be even cheaper than 2017). All you need to do is find those cheap airfares.
We do it for you every single day from Calgary (and 8 other Canadian departure cities) with our curated deals, but you can always use our advanced search tool to find specific tickets if you are willing to invest a bit of time.

If you want to buy this round-the-world trip, make sure you book very quickly because these deals won’t last forever and flight segment prices will change. Like all plane tickets, prices for specific dates always expire quickly so hurry up!
The basic rule for multi-ticket itineraries is to book the longest and most expensive segments first (ocean crossings usually), as those are the ones whose prices you want to lock in quickly. If the $22 flight changes to $32 in the meantime well, so be it.
Where This Around-The-World Trip Will Take You
You will fly to Paris (France), Milan (Italy), Athens (Greece), Singapore (Singapore), Phuket and Bangkok (Thailand) and Shanghai (China). You will have visited three continents: Europe, Asia and of course North America.
We planned for the longest part of the trip to be in Thailand, because it is a country so many people love to visit, but most importantly because it is among the cheapest destinations to travel to (the next part of that ranking will be published Wednesday).
We know most of you cannot pack up and leave for 6 whole months (unfortunately). But if you do have more than a month, you can easily spend more time in each of these destinations, or even add more destinations. We’ll write up an article on how to build your own around-the-world itinerary this fall!
You can also check out pictures of each destination after the detailed itinerary.
