One way to do that would be to embark on a trip around the world in business class.

You can book that dream for $2999 all in, with only one catch, as noted in the title. If you're not already there, you'll need to use points or a cheap flight to get to Paris.

A Few “Around The World” Options

Combining a few amazing flight deals will allow you to see three continents with ease, and you can choose how long you stay in each. To make planning a bit easier, here is a layout of some potential trips.

  • In Oceania, the cheapest destination is Auckland. For Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane the price will go up to around £2600
  • In Asia, you can choose from Bangkok, SeoulHong Kong, Shanghai or Beijing 
  • In North America, from San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Vancouver, New York and probably a few more.

There are a few instances where you would need to buy an extra ticket to get between the two points. It may not add much expense if you use miles or cash.

Two examples:

You could fly to New Zealand and then travel to Australia. You would just need to buy an additional ticket from New Zealand to Australia.

In North America, you could fly to Las Vegas and then take a flight to San Francisco or Los Angeles. There are some examples that offer live pricing.

The fares work both ways around the world.

Dates can be found in each month from June to September.

The cheapest time to fly is in November and December. The price will go up to $3800 for the other dates, which is still a great deal.

How to Book

The fares have to be booked through an online travel agency. There are a few examples with links and prices. If you want to book one of these deals, you need to change your dates once you click over.

Lufthansa Business Class Seat

Star Alliance gold should be made again. One of the best places to sit by a beach, drink something tropical with an umbrella and watch the world go by is in Mexico's Cancun. It has a buzzing nightlife scene and a variety of lodging options.

Tokyo At Meguro Canal

Selling Tokyo is similar to selling air conditioning in the desert. You know you want it, you know you need it, and if you like food, it is a whole new level. There are a lot of clever ways to use points, but not many cheap ones. Unless
