oneworld Explorer is one of the most popular, simple, flexible and best-value round-the-world fares available on the market – and the first multi-airline round-the-world fare that can be booked online. Prices are based on class of travel and, uniquely, the number of continents visited, rather than mileage of the overall trip. This keeps planning as simple as possible. Besides the online booking facility, also features a useful ‘itinerary planning’ tool for oneworld Explorer.

Visit oneworld’s plan and book your itinerary page to quickly build and price your itinerary.


Global Explorer is another round-the-world fare, which includes some airlines that are not part of oneworld, extending the choice of destinations further. Unlike oneworld Explorer, the cost of Global Explorer tickets is based on the distance flown, rather than the number of continents visited.
