Booking flights to multiple locations
When you are planing a journey that ends in more than one town, it may be best to make a multi-city itinerary. Allows you to make a multi-city journey with a one-way stop-over - a kind of stop-over that lasts longer than 12 hrs, so you have enough travel to each of your waypoints.
It is possible to stop for a few day (or even weeks) before taking your connection to the next destination. This method of reservation often helps to save costs compared to purchasing multiple ticket purchases. Multi-point travel can lead to complex routes and it can be difficult and disconcerting to book a single one.
Luckily, there are on-line utilities (such as Skyscanner and CheapAir) that can help you collect your stop-off choices and get your tickets in order. While most vendors only let you choose up to five or six stages for each journey, you can personalise the journey to make the most of what you have and includes stops around the worl.
There is an air travel options for multi-city travel, where you enter the origin and destination airports and the required data for up to six flights. For example, you can apply for a London to Amsterdam for June 2, one from Amsterdam to New York for June 9, one from New York to San Francisco for June 16, and one from San Francisco to Lima for June 23.
The results will give you the opportunity to fly for a three-week, four-week voyage across three different countries - all in one reservation. Select the timetable that suits you best and Skyscanner will forward you to the appropriate carrier or agency to finalise your book. The CheapAir works similarly, and both air traffic detection utilities mix the results into the smallest possible number of tour operators for each multi-city tour to make sure you are given the cheapest price and easiest to use.
If you are going on a backpacker journey for a few month (e.g. through Europe or Southeast Asia), air transport is not the only means of transport - you may also use busses or tram. This should not, however, prevent you from reserving a single airfare for multiple destinations, as you can incorporate long-haul schedules into a multi-city timetable.
Using an on-line reservation engine makes it easy to plan your rail or coach journeys within a multi-route destination route. You may prefer to take a plane from London to Amsterdam instead of London and from Amsterdam to New York City, take a rail to Brussels and then from Brussels to New York City.
Rather than entering London to Amsterdam for June 2 and Amsterdam to New York for June 9, simply enter London to Amsterdam for June 2 and Brussels to New York for whatever date you are planning this itinerary. You can take arain between these two trips, but you can still get both in one go with a multi-destination flight.
