How to Book
Booking a round the world flight can seem a bit overwhelming. It could be the most amount of money you’ve ever spent in one go, and you’ll want to get the details right. StudentUniverse are professionals at this, they know what they’re doing so put them to good use and let them organise it. To book your RTW flight with StudentUniverse it'll make life easier for both of us if you do something like the follow.
1. Have a rough route planned
We can confirm the details, so long as you have a rough idea of where you want to go. We get the occasional call from someone that goes like this:
"I want to go on a gap year. I don’t know where or when, can you help?"
Well, we can, but you’re better off asking that sort of thing on the gapyear.com message boards rather than over the phone. The website is the expert at advising, the people on the end of the phone are experts at booking.
Grab a map, mark where you want to go, and connect the dots.
2. Count up your piggy bank
It really helps when it comes to booking your round the world flight if you know, or at least have a rough idea of, you final travel budget. You might be surprised at which countries you could add on for a just a few more quid, or, sadly, it could go the other way.
3. Anything else we could help with?
We can also book accommodation, transport, tours and welcome packs so have a think about whether you’d like to add any of these on to your order before you call.
4. Call us
Once you have that sketched out it’s time to give us a call. When you phone have a calendar, a map and a pen or iPad, or something to write with or on, ready. Our experts can devise your route based on your budget and your plan. You can book your RTW flight while you’re on the phone, and any other add ons you’d like. That’s the beauty of the StudentUniverse experts – they can adapt to suit your call.
5. Check your documents
All the confirmation emails will come through to your given address. Check all the details meticulously. Let your dedicated consultant know of any changes.
And that’s it. You’re all booked in for a brilliant gap year!
