RTW Travel – How to Plan Your Itinerary

There are so many different steps to a RTW trip that it’s sometimes difficult to know where to begin. First you have to get through that first stage of actually making the decision to go. Finding inspiration shouldn’t be terribly difficult in this technological age we live in, but actually taking that plunge is a whole different story.

But once you decide that a RTW trip is right for you, where do you go next? Where’s the best place to get started? How do you sift through all the information out there to begin planning your trip of a lifetime?

The folks at BootsnAll have been hard at work these last few months developing the most comprehensive RTW travel guide around, and the massive planning section is at the forefront. This guide takes potential RTW travelers through all the necessary steps of planning a RTW trip. If you’re overwhelmed by the thoughts of planning a long-term trip, then start at the beginning of the guide. You can read it like a book or jump around to the articles that interest you most.

Where Do I Begin Planning a RTW Trip gets you started by getting you to ask yourself all the right questions. Starting there, they take you through all pertinent steps of planning a RTW trip. If you like to read things in sequential order, you can click on the red button at the bottom right corner of each page for the next article in the series.

There are 23 articles in the planning section alone, which covers all you need to know. They answer the big questions, like how to save money for a trip like this and what to consider when making the decision to buy RTW plane ticket or point to point tickets. They even look at the nitty gritty of planning an epic trip like this. No one likes to think about things like immunizations and what to do with all your stuff while you’re gone, but both are necessary steps when planning a RTW trip.

If you’re in the process of planning a trip around the world, be sure to check out BootsnAll for all your RTW travel needs. They have been working hard at developing the most helpful guide around, and they are always looking for feedback regarding their content.

Are you going on a Vagabonding trip or planning one now? If so, I’d like to talk to you and get your opinion on the vagabonding planning process and our RTW Travel Guide. If that describes you, contact the RTW Wednesday column writer, Adam Seper, at adam@bootsnall.com.
