The first two results offer multi-stop flight itineraries for Africa.  The first result is Travel Nation.  You can fly to 4-5 cities in Africa from London for £999- £1,195 ($1,275-$1,525).  https://www.travelnation.co.uk/round-the-world-flights/africa-multi-stop-flights

At SkySurf.Travel, I was able to build an itinerary to 10 cities in Africa from London, England for $1,548 (£1,215) with taxes included.    That’s twice as many cities I’ll be visiting for about the same price.

Here’s how I did it:  I clicked on the “multi-city” tab, then entered in “London” in the “Traveling From” field.  Since I’m flexible with dates, I selected “August 2017” after clicking on the “Depart Date” field, and finally clicked on the “Search Best Deals!” button.

A list of the cheapest flight options returns.  I see a flight to Hurghada, Egypt (a beautiful place with very clean water, beaches and coral reefs, and wrecks of ships) on August 31, 2017 for $182.  I add this flight to my flight itinerary (BookIt List) by clicking on the “+Add to BookIt List” button. A pop-up then appears such as the one below:

I decided to stay in Hurghada for 5 nights, so I selected September 5, 2017 and then clicked on the “To another destination” link.  A new list of results returns; this time with the cheapest flights from Hurghada on September 5th.  My cheapest flight option is to Cairo, Egypt for $47.  I add this flight to my BookIt List, and then repeat the above process until my final flight is back to London, England.

Here’s my complete flight itinerary (BookIt List):

You may need vaccinations, visas, and appropriate clothing before traveling to Africa.  It is highly recommended to do research of the country you will be visiting before booking any flights, such as travel advice, advisories, and warnings.

Africa is amazing and everyone should visit.  It has something for everyone.  If you do visit, make sure to take a ton of photos of Africa’s stunning landscapes, which are as diverse as the animal kingdom.

Safe travels!

Travel Russia for Cheap by Plane: 9 Cities for Less Than $650 in One Trip

Russia is the world’s largest country by landmass.  It includes nine different time zones and shares land borders with 14 neighboring countries.  Russia offers many natural sights, from the sandy Curonian Split on the Baltic Sea coast to the vast Golden Mountains of Altai in Southern Siberia. Whether you’re exploring the grounds of Moscow’s Kremlin or wandering the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, a visit to Russia will introduce you to the beauty of a land which is rich in culture and history.

Russia largest country map

Many people traveling to Russia are aware of the Trans-Siberian railway.  It is part of the longest railway system in the world running from Moscow to Vladivostok.  The line is known as the route of the tsars, begun in 1891 by Tsar Alexander III and completed by his son, Tsar Nicholas II, in 1916. According to an article from The Telegraph entitled, “Everything you need to know about booking a trip on the Trans-Siberian railway”, the cost for a one-way journey by service train to Vladivostok from Moscow, is about £500 ($644) in second class and £800 ($1,030) for first class, including food. Bedding is supplied in first- and second-class coaches.  If you plan on making stops in between, you’ll need to pay extra.

Trans Siberian railway map

For people who really want to see Russia, the Trans-Siberian Railway is a great way to get a good look at about 6,000 miles of it. But for those who’d rather fly, get to their destinations faster, and spend more time in cities than on a train, purchasing air ticket deals would be the better option.  And for those that like both can mix it around with trains and planes.

In this blog entry, I’ll be giving you an example of how to travel to 9 cities by plane for less than the price of a one-way Trans-Siberian rail ticket from Moscow to Vladivostok using the online flight deal tool SkySurf.Travel.  I’ll be beginning and ending my journey in Moscow, visiting 8 cities in between for the total price of $628 USD (taxes included).

Here’s how I got this super deal:  I first typed in “Moscow” in the “Traveling From” field, and then selected August 2017 in the “Depart Date” field.  Finally, I clicked on the “Search Best Deals!” button and a list of the cheapest flights returned departing from Moscow in August 2017.

My cheapest flight option is to Nizhniy Novgorod for $42 USD on August 9, 2017.  I added this to my itinerary (BookIt List) by clicking on the “+ Add to BookIt List” and a popup appears, such as the one below:

russia added to itinerary

I decided to stay in Nizhniy Novgorod for 4 nights, so I selected my departure date as August 13, 2017.  Then I clicked on the “To another destination” and a new list of results has returned.  You’ll be able to customize your trip anyway you like by repeating the same process as above until you reach your final destination.

Here’s where I’ll be traveling to for $628 USD (taxes included):

  • Moscow, Russia (starting point)
  • Nizhniy Novgorod – August 9, 2017 ($42)
  • St. Petersburg – August 14, 2017 ($62)
  • Rostov-on-Don – August 18, 2017 ($72)
  • Sochi – August 23, 2017 ($52)
  • Krasnodar – August 29, 2017 ($61)
  • Tyumen – September 4, 2017 ($170)
  • Novosibirsk – September 9, 2017 ($54)
  • Surgut – September 13, 2017 ($52)
  • Back to Moscow – September 19, 2017 ($63)

Before visiting Russia, you will need to obtain a Russian tourist visa. For more information on how to obtain a visa to travel Russia, visit https://russia.travisa.com/.  Here’s a list of countries that do not require a visa to enter the Russian Federation: http://ru.vfsglobal.co.uk/visa_free_regime.html. You’ll also need to get an invitation (also called visa support), which is a special document issued by the party that invites you to Russia. The invitation is required by a Russian consulate to be able to process your visa.  The invitation (visa support) can be issued by a Russian travel agency, or by a company or organization authorized by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).  Here’s an in-depth article on “How to Get a Russian Visa” by The Points Guy, and a “Russian Visa Support Application: Step by Step Guide” by Way to Russia.  If you need help with Russian travel, you can message our friendly live online support at SkySurf.Travel.  You do not have to buy air tickets in order to get a visa but you should take the following into account:

  • If you apply for a visa before buying your tickets, it’s possible that you won’t be able to find flights for the exact dates for which you applied or they may be more expensive. Most often, the earlier you book your flights the cheaper they will be.
  • It is possible that you will purchase tickets in advance (if you’ve found a great deal or good price) and then not receive your visa. If you’re going as a tourist, have no criminal issues, have an invite and travel insurance, there’s very little chance of you being denied; however, it is not 100% guaranteed you’ll get a visa.
  • If you need to get a visa, you should begin the process at least 5 weeks ahead of time.

Privyet!

How to Book the Cheapest Flights

In this blog entry, you’ll learn how to find the cheapest flight deals possible to anywhere in the world using the flight deal website SkySurf.Travel.  This is an innovative online service for anyone who wants to go somewhere on a budget, but doesn’t know where exactly. It can also be used for finding the most economical flight path to multiple cities. For example, if your overall flight ticket budget is $500, you can view all your one-way, round-trip, or multi-city flight options for under $500.

One-way flights

Let’s say you’re looking to travel around the world, and looking for flight ticket deals whenever you are ready to depart a city.  For this example, I’ll be looking for flight deals under $100 departing from Beijing, China sometime in August 2017.  I enter in “Beijing” in the “Traveling From” input field, and select “August 2017” in the “Depart Date” field, and finally click on the “Search Best Deals!” button to retrieve a list of results of the cheapest flight deals for the month of August 2017.

Here are the results:

If I plan on staying in China, I can choose from 19 cities that I can fly to for under $100.

If I plan on leaving China, there are 4 countries I can fly to for under $100 (Malaysia, Hong Kong, Philippines, and South Korea).

You can also choose the exact date, and if you’re flexible, you can subtract or add days to your departure date by clicking on the left or right arrow buttons after your results appear, such as the ones below:

Change departure date by left or right arrows

Round-trip flights

There are a couple ways of finding the cheapest round-trip flight deals.  First, click on the “Roundtrip” tab, type in where you’ll be traveling from as well as your departure and return dates.  For this example, I’ll be traveling from New York, NY, USA, for one week, so I’ve selected August 16-23, 2017.  A list of flights returned that are sorted by cheapest to most expensive.  There are 17 countries I can travel to round-trip from NYC for under $500. Four of them are to Europe (Scotland, Ireland, Denmark, and Finland).

Another way of finding cheap round-trip flight deals is by repeating the above steps, but this time clicking on the “Show me two one-way tickets that I can book separately” option. You’ll be able to choose your return flight once you choose your departure flight. (This can at times be cheaper).  For this option, you’ll be able to see if booking two separate one-way flight deals is cheaper than purchasing a round-trip flight ticket.

If you’re flexible, you can also search by month to view the cheapest airfare for any month, or click the “anytime” option to see what the current cheapest destinations are for anytime.

In the top navigation, you can also click on the “Flight Map” button to view a world map of all the destinations you can fly to.  There’s a price range slider to select your max airfare price, and see where you can fly to on a world map.

Airport destination flight map

Multi-city flights

I’ve written a few blog entries on how to travel around the world or a continent to multiple cities in the most economical way. Here are a few:

The options are endless on finding your ideal and most cost-effective travel itinerary.  Whether you’re planning a cheap one-way, round-trip, or multi-city trip, SkySurf.Travel is the tool you’ll need to build the most economical flight itinerary to anywhere around the world.  If you need help with building your travel itinerary, there’s live online help at SkySurf.Travel.

Cheap Round the World (RTW) Tickets – 15 Countries for under $1,500 in One Trip

The world is a majestic and wonderful place.  Being able to travel and explore the world and experience cultures is priceless and, in my humble opinion, the best thing you can spend your money on.

According to Nomadic Matt’s “The In-depth Guide to Buying an RTW Ticket” article, “RTW tickets prices range between $2,700-$10,000 USD, depending on your mileage, route, and number of stops, though a simple two- or three-stop RTW ticket might cost as little as $1,500 USD.”

He also mentions “you can find a better deal by booking through a third party such as Airtreks, STA Travel, or Flight Centre (OZ/NZ). Third party bookers don’t just deal with one alliance – they mix and match from all available airlines (excluding budget airlines) to find the lowest price, which saves you money.”

What if I told you can save even more money on RTW tickets with SkySurf.Travel?  There is no “they”, so you can customize your RTW trip ticket anyway you like online, and budget airlines are also included to save you even more money!  If you need help building your RTW travel itinerary, there’s live online help.  In this blog entry, you’ll learn how to save a ton of money on RTW tickets.  I’ll show you how you can travel to 15 countries around the entire world for under $1,500.  No mile points needed, and no strings attached. Some airlines charge an extra fee for larger baggage.  Make sure to check each airline’s baggage terms before booking your flights.

For this example, I’ll be starting my journey from New York, NY!  I enter in “NYC” in the “Traveling From” input field, and then select “July 2017” by clicking on the “Depart Date” input field to find the best deals in July 2017.  Finally, I click on the “Search Best Deals!” button and a list of results return.  I first want to travel to Europe and found a great deal to Edinburgh, Scotland for only $80!  The flight departs from Stewart International, which is about a $20 bus ride to get to from NYC.  I add this flight to my RTW itinerary (BookIt List) by clicking on the “+Add to BookIt List” button.  A popup then appears such as the one below:

I decide to stay in Edinburgh for 5 nights, so I select the date July 26, 2017.  I then find a great deal to Dublin, Ireland for only $38!  I add this flight to my BookIt List and repeat the above process until I’m back home in New York City.

Here’s where I’ll be traveling to for only $1,475 (taxes included):

  • New York, NY USA (Starting point)
  • Edinburgh, Scotland – July 21, 2017 ($80)
  • Dublin, Ireland – July 26, 2017 ($38)
  • Cardiff, Wales – August 1, 2017 ($33)
  • Madrid, Spain – August 6, 2017 ($49)
  • Milan, Italy – August 10, 2017 ($33)
  • Prague, Czechia – August 14, 2017 ($35)
  • Kiev, Ukraine – August 21, 2017 ($108)
  • Ankara, Turkey – August 25, 2017 ($56)
  • Tbilisi, Georgia – August 29, 2017 ($80)
  • Baku, Azerbaijan – September 1, 2017 ($51)
  • Tehran, Iran – September 6, 2017 ($52)
  • Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – September 11, 2017 ($188)
  • Manila, Philippines – September 15, 2017 ($49)
  • Seoul, South Korea – September 19, 2017 ($114)
  • Los Angeles, CA USA – September 23, 2017 ($344)
  • New York, NY USA – September 27, 2017 ($165)

Here’s a screenshot of my entire RTW itinerary (BookIt List) below:

Each time you click on the “+ Add to BookIt List” button to add the flight to your itinerary (BookIt List), a popup will appear such as the one below:

How to Travel the United States by Plane for Really Cheap. Fourteen States for Under $600.

Ever wanted to backpack around the United States by plane, but thought it would just be too expensive?  The United States isn’t that popular of a destination for backpackers and budget travelers, most likely because the flights to get around the United States aren’t as cheap as they are in Europe or Asia.  The United States is a big country (3rdlargest country in the world by area) with lots of national parks, a diverse geography, culture, music, and great regional food.  You can rent a car and drive around, or get around by bus or train; but what if you would rather fly to get to your destinations even quicker?  After doing some research online, I wasn’t able to find any articles on how to budget travel the United States by plane in the most economical way.  In this blog post, you’ll learn how to use the online tool SkySurf.Travel to find the most cost-effective way of traveling around the United States by plane.  No mile points needed.
 
 
 

For this example, I was able to build an itinerary composed of 14 states, all non-stop flights, for a total of $583 with taxes included.  Most of these flights are with Spirit airlines*, and a couple with Frontier airlines**.

Below is a list of cities I’ll be flying to.  I’ll be spending about 4-6 nights in each city for this example.  The cost of each flight ranges from $30-$60.

  • New York City (starting point)
  • Orlando, Florida ($40)
  • Atlanta, Georgia ($34)
  • New Orleans, Louisiana ($41)
  • Dallas, Texas ($41)
  • Chicago, Illinois ($40)
  • Minneapolis, Minnesota ($40)
  • Denver, Colorado ($46)
  • San Diego, California ($45)
  • Las Vegas, Nevada ($41)
  • Kansas City, Missouri ($58)
  • Detroit, Michigan ($58)
  • Boston, Massachusetts ($49)
  • Atlantic City, New Jersey ($49)

I’ve ended my trip in Atlantic City, NJ because there are frequent and cheap bus rides back to New York City (about $20).

Here’s the flight map of my travel route that was generated at SkySurf.Travel after building my complete itinerary:

 

And here’s how I got these really cheap prices:  First I clicked on the “Multi-city” tab, I then typed in “New York City” in the “Traveling From” input field, select the “Depart Date” (I’ve selected “May 2017” to see the cheapest destination I can fly to in May) and finally clicked the “Search Best Deals!” button.

A list returned of the cheapest flights.  I clicked on “United States” to browse the cheapest flight destinations in the United States, and then clicked on the “+ Add to BookIt List” button to add flights to my itinerary.  A popup then appears for each time I click on the “+ Add to BookIt List” button, such as the one below:

 

I select the date on when I plan on departing each city, and repeat this process until I’m satisfied with my “round-the-United-States” itinerary.

Below is a screenshot of my entire itinerary (BookIt List):

Here’s a great article from the Huffington Post on 21 Ways To See America For Cheap.

First I clicked on the “Multi-city” tab, I then typed in “Singapore” in the “Traveling From” input field, selected the “Depart Date” (in this case I’m pretty flexible, so I’ve selected “May 2017”) and finally clicked the “Search Best Deals!” button.

  • Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – May 24 – 28, 2017 ($32)

All non-stop flights!  According to this article How to Hit Europe’s Greatest Cities for under $500 in One Trip, you can visit 15 cities in Europe for under $500 by bus or train.  That’s a great deal, but what if you would rather fly and get to your destinations faster, and pay even less?  Or possibly mix it up a bit with plane, bus, and train to get even a cheaper deal?  That’s totally a matter of preference.  You might enjoy sightseeing when riding a bus or train, while reading a book about your next destination, or perhaps you prefer flying through the sky with a bird’s eye view of the lands below?

Now be forewarned:  The prices below were found during the time of writing this blog.  Prices change frequently for flights.  You can still find great flight deals for under $500 if you plan 
your own economical travel route using SkySurf.Travel.  Possibly even cheaper, or slightly more expensive, depending on the time of booking and where you want to fly to.  Also, some airlines such as Wizzair allow passengers a free small cabin bag carry-on the size of 42 x 32 x 25 cm.  To see what a carry-on bag of this size looks like, click here: http://amzn.to/2qzjtcZ, so packing light is a good idea if you want to fly for really cheap.  If you need to travel with a larger carry-on, some airlines may charge an extra fee.  Please see baggage policies of each airline before booking.

Here’s my European vacation travel route (17 cities):

Not too bad, eh?  Seventeen cities in Europe traveling by plane for $487 with taxes included!

Here’s how I got this awesome deal:

I clicked on the “Multi-city” tab and entered in my departure city, which is London, England (LOND). I then clicked on “Depart Date”, clicked on “June 2017”, and finally the “Search Best Deals!” button.

The cheapest flight that came up in the search results was to Olsztyn-Mazury, Poland on June 13, 2017 for $16! (Which, by the way, is a charming city in Poland with many beautiful lakes in the area.  Great for boating, camping, nightlife, and more.)

Once I add this flight to my BookIt List, I get a popup such as the one below:

I choose the date when I want to depart, and then click on the “To another destination” link, or click the “Back to London Luton LTN” link once I want a return flight back to London.   I repeat this process until I’m done adding all my flights to the BookIt List.

It’s possible to go even lower in price!  Try it out yourself (possibly even with trains, buses, or ferries) and let me know what great itineraries you can come up with.  Try Asia!  It’s also cheap to get around by plane.  And even the entire world!

Happy and safe travels!

How to Travel Europe for Cheap

SkySurf.travel (http://skysurf.travel) is not just for booking cheap round-the-world air tickets.  You can also find cheap one-way or round-trip airfare deals, or customize your trip anyway that you desire.  For this blog entry, I’ll be giving you an example of how you can travel around a few countries in Europe for mega-cheap from NYC.  If you already live in Europe, it’ll be even cheaper.

Let’s say I want to visit Europe for two months, visit a country each week, and then return back home to New York City.  I enter in NYC in the “Traveling from” field and September 1st as my departure date.   I select the “Multi-city” option and click on the “Search Best Deals!” button.

The cheapest flight to Europe on September 1st is $306 to Naples, Italy.  I’m pretty flexible with dates, and would like to see if there are any cheaper flights to Europe in September, so I click on the “Find the best deals for September 2016” link.  I find a flight to Oslo, Norway for $181 on September 29.   I add this flight to my BookIt list.

A popup appears, such as the screenshot above.  I am going to spend a week in each country, so I select October 7 as my departure date and then click on the “To another random destination” link.

The cheapest flight on October 7th is to Germany for $41.  I add this flight to my BookIt list and repeat the process above until I’m ready to add my return trip flight back home to New York City to my BookIt list.

Below is my final BookIt list:

Please note that some airlines may charge an additional fee for baggage.  Usually carry-on luggage is included free of charge.  If you want to fly cheap, packing light is a good idea. 

That’s a total of 8 countries in 2 months for $567.17; all non-stop flights.  According to this Business Insider article (http://www.businessinsider.com/10-cheapest-flights-from-nyc-to-europe-2014-9), the cheapest round-trip flight to Europe from New York City, on average, is to Oslo, Norway for $552.  So instead of just visiting Oslo, Norway, I’m visiting 8 countries for about the same price!  It’s as if I’m getting free trips to other countries by using the online service SkySurf.travel.  Here are some tips on getting the cheapest airline deals for when flying to or from Europe.  Try to fly into or out of these countries for the cheapest deals: Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, France, Iceland, Russia, Ireland, or the United Kingdom. Norwegian airlines are usually the cheapest and they fly to Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Ireland, United Kingdom, and France non-stop.

Let’s say I were to live in Germany and did not need a return flight trip back to New York City.  I would be paying about $175 for flying to 8 countries around Europe for 2 months. Not a bad deal!

Here are the countries I’ll be visiting in Europe for 2 months from New York City:

  • Norway – September 30 – October 7
  • Germany – October 7 – 14
  • Poland – October 14 – 21
  • Sweden – October 21 – 28
  • Romania – October 29 – November 4
  • Italy – November 4 – 11
  • Ireland – November 11 – 18
  • Denmark – November 18 – 25
