Round the World Experts, the online flight specialists were pleasantly surprised by the steep rise in demand for business and first class around the world flights. One normally associates the round the world journeys with the backpackers. Going round the world first class seems to be a new phenomenon. The company feels that the surge in demand is due to cash-rich professionals taking a career break or those using the money they might have spent on a holiday home.
Round the World confirmed that they have recently taken a round the world booking for 50,000 British Pounds. It is a first class world tour with 5 Star stops in Asia and Australia. The special package created also includes a luxury yacht charter in the Whitsunday islands and a place on the lead boat for the Sydney New Year’s Eve flotilla.
This is a completely new type of round the world traveler. This is generally a professional, over 50, who still have a burning desire to see the world and experience new and different cultures. They have been inspired by young travelers and seek a similar experience but with an added element of comfort. Demand for such business and first class itineraries have trebled in the last six months.
