In order to appeal to customers’ desire for more individualised travel options, we recently launched themed itineraries, which we hope will inspire travellers to book the Round the World trip they’ve always dreamed of.”
The new themed itineraries include: World Food, World Wonders, Architecture Hotspots, Nature Trail, Aquatic Wonders, Ramsar Wetlands, Natural Wonders, Great Hotels, Sports Hotspots, Wine Tasting, Romantic Journey and Luxury Lifestyle.

Supporting the launch of the new Round the World themes, Star Alliance and Marriott International have jointly engaged seven travel bloggers to travel on a themed itinerary and report on their journey. Star Alliance is providing air transportation and Marriott hotel accommodation. Migrationology’s Mark Wiens is tasting culinary delights across the globe, Mapping Megan’s Megan and Mike Jerrard are on a Romantic Journey, True Nomad’s Justin Carmack is diving at underwater hotspots, Scott Eddy is tasting wines on six continents, Instagrammer Michael Schulz is photographing architectural wonders, and Cool Hunting’s Karen Day is on a whirlwind “Professional Gap Year” tour. Last but not least, Oneika-the-Traveller is exploring the wonders of the world. You can view all of their itineraries and learn more at http://www.staralliance.com/en
To facilitate booking these new inspirational journeys, the Alliance’s online Round the World booking tool, “Book & Fly,” was recently upgraded. New features allow potential travellers to choose the airport closest to their home as the starting point for their selected themed itinerary. Customers can also now share their selected itinerary through the various social networks. Further customisation by adding, removing or exchanging destinations is also now possible. The online booking tool can be found on the Alliance’s website at www.staralliance.com/en/book-f
