Travel with any combination of Star Alliance airlines (subject to some flight exclusions) and make anywhere from 3 up to 15 stops on your journey (limited to 5 with the Economy Class Round the World Special). You have a choice of fare levels, based on a maximum distance of up to 39,000 miles. No more than 3 transfers are permitted in one city.

The Star Alliance Round the World Fare gives you the flexibility to back-track within a region or continent during your trip. The key requirements are that the journey must start and end in the same country, and that travel is round the world with only one Atlantic and one Pacific crossing are included. Your journey may last any time between 10 days (minimum period only applies to the Economy Class Round the World Special) and a year. You can change the dates of most of your flights at any time, except for those up to and including your first international flight.
