The minimum stay is ten days — except if the origin of the journey is either the Japan or southwest Pacific regions, in which case the minimum stay is five days — after the first international departure; and the maximum stay is six months.

Reservations are required a minimum of seven days prior to departure for all flights.

Travel must begin and end in the same country and must include at least — but not more than — one transatlantic flight; one transpacific flight; and one flight between area 2 and area 3.

I constructed my own independent unintentional itinerary eastbound around the world during autumn of 2014 which involved nine countries using five airlines — including my first flight on an airplane operated by Ryanair — so I never tried to experience one of the Round The World itineraries offered by the SkyTeam alliance

…but as you can save 15 percent on a Round The World itinerary, consider taking advantage of this offer — especially if you have never traveled around the world before.

    Neat! Now, the question I have right off the bat, is there a way to book this with all points and save on the total points “cost”?

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      Not to my knowledge, Carl, as I believe that this sale is only for revenue-based itineraries and not for award travel.

      1. Carl says:

        Ok, thanks. I had a feeling that would be so, but figgered it was worth asking!
