    Multi Flight Advice 16th May 18 at 1:17 PM
    I am looking to plan a trip that involves a minimum of 5 international flights (Honeymoon trip, doing safari and then beach holiday).

    I have spoken with Flight Centre and also looked on Sky Scanner but wondered if anyone had any other recommendations (or warnings) for places I should look/avoid.

    Thanks

    As a rule of thumb, book your flights directly from the airline. You might not need all flights on the same ticket, depending on how you're travelling. If you post your scheduled itineary it would be easier to give concrete advice.

    I know the flights are probably slightly too far in advance currently as most airlines are only just releasing them but I am currently working a notice period before starting a new job in June so have a little more time on my hands to plan things.

    The itineary is:

    London (Any airport) to Johannesburg (1st May)
    Johannesburg to Maun (Botswana) (2nd May)
    Victoria Falls to Jo'berg (10th May)
    Jo'berg to Maldives (11th May)
    Maldives to London (19th May)

    BA can do a lot of these flights with their partner in SA Comair.
    Posts are not advice and must not be relied upon.

    As you say flight details are not yet out for those dates even doing a dummy booking on google flights in April 2019 prices are over 2k each. I know you can't really compare as prices can vary.

    You will have more protection if you purchase all flights on one ticket and I would also suggest booking with the airline rather than an ota.

    Have you considered a round the world ticket as they can often work out cheaper? There will be t&cs associated with a rtw ticket so check carefully.

    Thanks guy, will do a bit of research into BA routes and the RTW option.
