Hello,
I just became a memeber after being just a regular visitor to the website for the past 6 years, I hope I can contribute something to the community.

On to the question: I am planning a trip this summer to Asia and Australia. I was wondering how I would go about finding the cheapest Pacific Circle ticket that would allow me to get from San Francisco to Hong Kong to Singapore to Sydney back to San Francisco. I've checked aa.com and could only find one for $2500, way too much for a broke college student. Should I try a travel agency, any suggestions? Thanks everyone

Welcome to a.net - and if I were you, I'd try a travel agency specialising in student travel (the fact that I work for one of the companies with offices all around the globe probably influences that opinion just a bit...  Wink).

Anyhow - I'd say try companies like STA Travel, Student Universe, ...

Regards,
Frank

There is a Star Alliance Pacific circle ticket.

I am not sure though, how much it is.

Here is a link.

This is the direct link to the Star Alliance Circle Pacific Fare:

http://www.staralliance.com/star_all...nce/star/content/pacific_fare.html

The fare (originating in New Zealand) is given as NZD 2989 for the 22,000 miles version, which currently converts into around USD 2225... while the fare might be different from/to the US, I guess it'll probably still be somewhere in the same region.

Thanks for the replies. I had found one for US$1300 and I'm totally kicking myself for not buying it now. If anyone can help, here are the dates

7/20 - SFO (or SJC) to HKG
8/12- HKG - SIN (or BKK)
9/1 - SIN (or BKK) to SYD
9/13 - SYD-SFO

The dates are flexible really. I also checked the staralliance website and the oneworld one, but they just dont quote the price.

Thanks again!

There is a specialist in San Francisco that deals with your type of itinerary: Air Brokers International. The owner's name is Eimhard. You probably can get a deal for about $1,200. Google Air Brokers. They are on the web.

The best travel agent, IMHO, that provides circle pacific and RTW fares is Air Treks http://www.airtreks.com

You can chat your own itinerary and get a price.

Welcome to the site. Try looking in the LA or SF Sunday paper travel sections. You'll see tiny ads for round the world and circle route airfares that are competitive. Call and ask the terms, airlines, etc. However, some don't allow you to earn miles. Good luck.


Don't just stand there, go get some glue!
