    Although, it is now known to be issued by airlines in the global alliances, a round-the-world ticket (also known as round-the-world fare or RTW ticket in short) is a product that enables travellers to fly around the world for a relatively low price.

    RTW tickets have existed for some time and in the past were generally offered through marketing agreements between airlines on several continents.

    Now, they are almost universally offered by airline alliances such as SkyTeam, Star Alliance and Oneworld, or by specialist travel agencies that will spend time helping customise a trip to the consumer’s needs.

    However, it is good for customers to know that round-the-world tickets are priced according to travel class, origin of travel, number of continents, mileage and sometimes season of travel.
