The economy class 3 continent OneWorld RTW fare is $3,519 Canadian dollars if purchased in Canada.
The exact same fare purchased in the UK is only 1,214 pounds sterling.
Converting the 1,214 pounds to Canadian dollars on XE.com equals $2,185 Canadian dollars.
In effect I can fly to the UK and purchase the above fare for over $1,300 dollars less than if I buy it in Toronto! (Although 68 and retired, I’m back and forth to the UK often.)
It seems that buying the RTW tickets in the UK has to be a huge advantage right now!
In fact the only disadvantage with OneWorld’s RTW fares is that CX does not seem to permit HKG-YYZ travel on their non-stop flights!
