Flightfox, a platform that allows you to “outsource” your itenirary planning to a community of expert travel planners, just announced some amazingly cheap around-the-world itineraries that touch 6 continents. An all coach itinerary for $1,730, and the real kicker, business for $3,630! That’s taxes and all. There are one way flights that I have been looking at, which are well over $1000, so these numbers are really impressive.  Yes, there are understandable catches, but even if you paid double, it’s a steal.

If I didn’t have so many frequent flyer miles already, I would definitely be using this service for my own ATW journey.  For full details on their contest, read the official post:  http://flightfox.com/rtw
