These are the cities that travelers are building their trips around.

Many travelers want and need help planning a route and choosing the flight path that is going to offer the maximum value for your trip, which is why we designed the Top Destinations article the way we did and why we put together the following bookable routes using the destinations, tips, and advice offered in that article.

Keep in mind that you can utilize these destinations and tips with any airline or company who sells airfare – whether it’s one-ways, multi-stop, or traditional round the world (RTW) tickets.

Though these specific trips were built on our two platforms (AirTreks and Indie), we encourage you to use these routes as a starting point to learn about how airfare works and then tweak to fit your own needs, search and price all available options, then choose the one that’s best for you.


Trips on Indie


Indie is the do it yourself flight booking engine. When using Indie to build, price, and book flights, you can tweak any of the trips below (just click on Price this Trip on any of the route maps below to edit the route and dates to fit your needs). To get a bookable price, you will need an Indie account, which is totally free.

Trips on AirTreks


When BootsnAll and AirTreks merged just over a year ago, we were excited to combine two companies with a passion for long-term travel.

Indie offers travelers a way to build, price, and book multi-stop trips completely online without talking to anyone.

AirTreks does things a little differently by offering an immediate price range estimate on the route you build on their Trip Planner, then directing you to a personal travel consultant to talk about goals and ideas for your trip before helping you build a route that makes the most sense for you and your budget.

It’s highly personalized (with no cost to customers), and their flight planning experts have over 100 years of combined experience helping people plan their long-term trips.

AirTreks is ideal for those who want and need help with complex airfare for a big trip. If you are confused about where to start, don’t have the time to spend researching airfare geography and costs, or simply want help from an expert, then AirTreks is the place to go.

The following trips were built on AirTreks using our Top Destinations of 2015. If you’re interested in finding out more about any of them, just click on the map for that particular trip or build your own route and submit it to their team of experts.
