Some of the tours and treks packages on that website look really good, one in Canada for a week from 281 quid.
#4
Tempting, I need to book a couple of these this year.

I'd avoid using STA if all possible - I used to, but they reneged on a deal they were offering (an "if you can find a cheaper flight elsewhere we'll refund the difference type thing), which I was not impressed with. Also good luck trying to get a flight for the £729 they're offering - that price is just to get you through the door!
#7
STA are great. Not long ago I was thinking of jumping ship with work and going round the world. I had a personal member of staff who helped make a package for me and it only ended up a few hundred more than this.
#8
Yeah £729 seems too good of a price, I wonder if theres a catch.

Must disagree, Ive used them several times and they are faultless and couldn't be more helpful to the point where I had a member of staff's direct line/email address, popped them an email when I wanted to move on and the done the leg work to find cheap flights that fitted my schedule.

One of my mate sis currently 10 months into a 18 month round the world trip with STA providing the main travel and it has been faultless...just wish I wa sin Beijing with him!

Cracking deal. If I could afford the trip I'd take a month off work for this.
#11
NB this route avoids Sydney and south island NZ (the main reason to go there... Auckland was quite boring for me relatively!)... you also have to make your own way from LA to NY. so quite uninspiring route!!
... then you have to add taxes.

Indeed. The wife and I went in hoping for this offer but it only applies if you can go off peak season and are under 26/student. Otherwise it's £1019 off peak and considerably more during peak season. That 'from' needs a bit of investigating.

try actually getting it for this price......

STA used to be good. They are cheap, i give you that, however the customer services sucks majorly when problems occur, especially ones of their making and costly ones. Customer service make you jump through hoops, managers don't reply. You'd be better off contacting a company like Dial A Flight, who are surprisingly cheap on ROTW trips.

Nice one, I'll have a proper look at this later

Voted hot.

I did the "Round the world" thing with STA a few years ago, and STA's service was excellent. They sorted out a problem with Qantas for me really well when I got back to the UK.

I also did a tour from Singapore to Bangkok with these guys (also through STA), and I would recommend this to everyone. Do it once. You'll never regret it.

(Btw, I'm slightly biased.. One of the other women on this tour ended up being my wife. They didn't warn me about that in the small print..!!!)

LA to NY Roadtrip!!!

Round the World is a great option for a big trip, saves a lot. I did almost this route a few years ago. Remember you have to add airport taxes for each stop, which will add a few hundred pounds, and some internal travel (eg. driving/flying across USA).

Personally, I'd skip Dubai, and add south-east asia and Australia, plus a lovely stop in the Cook Islands between NZ and LA (you'll need a chillout break after all the zooming around).

It would take 38 days exactly to walk it! (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&q=la%20to%20new%20york&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wl)

Only 1 day 21 hours in the car!

Done NY to LA a couple of years ago which was amazing. 6 lads in a van, toilet blocked within 4 hrs of starting but besides that, it was incredible!

£729 will generally be low season leave in June.

I off to see sta tomorrow for London-Tokyo-Bangkok-Perth-Christchurch-Cook Islands-Los Angeles-London.

Do you have any advice on the best way across, e.g. car, coach etc. I know you drove but I'm booking tomorrow to do ny-la, NZ and Australia and Thailand on the way back. We've got 17 days in America, would so love to drive across.

Sorry, I know you didn't ask me, but I've been to the USA 5 times and have visited about 44 of the 50 states. Before I can advise you, how old are you and how old are the people you are travelling with if any?

Thanks. There are 3 of us, were 23. I've got Chicago already planned as I've always wanted to go there, but apart from that I don't know the best route across or places to see.

Hope you have a couple grand spare for that one! Cook Island will bump it up abit too.

is this just students?

STA are a great company, but it is the Student Travel Association, so don't expect luxury :0)

STA quoted £1560 inc taxes to do the trip we have planned but we have a cheaper quote for it from http://www.roundtheworldflights.com.

Cook Islands will be worth whatever the extra.

Going by Google maps though? Trust me, you won't do it in under 2days! It would take a week for most people when you factor in sleeping. eating, toilet breaks etc. and thats without doing any touristy stuff/exploring

You are all in the perfect age group to take a tour from Contiki, a holiday company for 18-35's. (It is a million times better than the 18-30 holidays to Europe you may have heard about!). I have taken 4 Contiki tours to the USA and have had some of the very best experiences of my life. In my opinion, there is absolutely no better way to see the USA (or any of the other countries that Contiki tours operate in, though I have only been on Contiki tours to the USA). Plus you make loads of new friends every time, in fact a whole coach load, and they are all really very friendly and adventurous people (mostly from Australia by the way - Ozzies clearly love travelling!).

Check out the Contiki USA tours at the following link: Contiki tours North America. Personally I recommend the Grand Northern tour (a tour I have been on, as well as the Grand Southern) as you want to visit Chicago (in which case you must go up the Sears Tower, just like Ferris Bueller, his girlfriend Sloane and his best friend Cameron!).

The main issues are basically: how much time you have, and how much money you have, as Contiki tours are not particularly cheap (although I consider them to be excellent value), but you do get all your accommodation paid for (and they are all really good motels and hotels, but you'll mainly be spending your time on excursions, at dinners, socialising and partying!). You also have to allow some extra money for some optional activities and excursions that are not included, but having said that, you do get a lot of dinners and activities included in the tour price as well.

By the way, I don't work for Contiki but absolutely ADORE their tours! And guess who the first person who told me about a Contiki tour was - a travel rep at STA Travel at my old university! Also I have only ever travelled alone on Contiki tours, but made about 40 new friends on each tour within half a day of starting the tour. And some of those people are fantastic. And after all, you go travelling to meet new people as well as seeing new places.

Having typed out all the above, I've got a feeling that Contiki tours may be out of your budget 9and also you may not have enough time - in which case I still strongly recommend one of their shorter tours, say 12 days), but I strongly recommend them for the future anyway.

If you or anyone else has any questions about Contiki tours (to the USA anyway), please feel free to ask me or PM me.

I am typing this at nearly 5 am so I'm tired, but whether or not you go to the USA by Contiki tours, I will try to find time next time to give you a list of some things you must do. Personally my favourite place in the USA is the Grand Canyon (something that has to be seen in person to be believed), which I have walked down and walked up (not to be underestimated - it takes HOURS!!) 3 times. Also you must see all the main sights in New York of course. And hang out a bit in Las Vegas for fun (but I can't handle Vegas for more than a few days at a time). When I remember other places, I will mention them.

Have fun travelling, you lucky so-and-so!!

Great offer! I went round the world with Sta travel last year and it was a LOT more expensive than that! It was worth it though.

Has anyone always wanted to see the Northern Lights? I just came across a competition on Facebook to win a four-night holiday to the Arctic Circle. Wow! The page is called 'I want to see the Northern Lights' and all you have to do is like the page to enter. Now that would be an experience!
