Special November 2012 fares for multi-stop tickets on BootsnAll

We’ve written about the Round the World Ticket Report on Vagablogging before – once back in March when we published the first version, and then again in June when we published version 2.  One thing we like to do at BootsnAll is to continue learning about the trends in long-term, round the world travel, so the minute we finished version 2 in June we began working on the next installment, which just went live a couple days ago.

Version 2.1 is actually an addendum to June’s report.  We knew since we started doing research on round the world flights vs. buy as you go that there was a flaw when searching the DIY (do it yourself) one-way ticket option.  The way we searched the one-way flights was to simply search each leg, which we did over the course of a day or two.  But this didn’t accurately portray what this option would actually cost a traveler who was on the road.

For those travelers who choose this option of traveling around the world, they do so to have the ultimate flexibility, so they are most likely not going to be searching and buying their tickets up front as we searched.  For this version we tried to simulate this flight option by pricing flights on the original search date back in April 2012, then again 6 weeks, 1 month, 2 weeks, and each day the final week prior to the flight.  There are trends that developed, and all results can be found in this new version of the report, added at the end as an addendum to version 2.
