Multi leg flights are an ideal choice if you want to visit two or more locations on a single trip. Due to their size and diversity, areas of the world such as the Far East, Australia or the USA lend themselves perfectly to the multi leg option.
The great thing about choosing to take multi leg flights is that you don’t necessarily pay more for choosing to stop over in a country on route. The rules of mid and long haul flights normally allow you to stopover at least once free of charge. So for example, a flight from London to Sydney can have a stop over in Hong Kong and on the return you can stop over at Singapore, all for the same price as a return ticket to Sydney. The only thing to consider is that you may have to higher air port taxes.
There are many options to choose from if you decide to take a multi leg flight, and if you can’t find an itinerary that suits you then you can have a travel agency tailor a quote to meet your specification. To give you a few ideas, below is a list of the most popular multi leg itineraries.
