Urgent News: If you want to travel around the world for ridiculously cheap, read this RIGHT NOW!!! This deal will not last.

I just booked a ticket from New York City to Milan AND from Prague to Tokyo for $215, and I can show you how to do the same, but you have to act right now.

***UPDATE: From what I can tell, it seems that the deal is over. Im sorry for any of you that were not able to get a ticket, but if something like this comes up, Ill try to make sure you get it first.***

There is some sort of error going on with Priceline.com. Right now, if you go to their website and book a multi-destination flight with the same destinations that I have chosen and you set the dates around November, you can get some CRAZY good deals.

Im am flying New York to Milan November 1st and then Prague to Tokyo (The world’s smartest city) November 30th for $215 INCLUDING INSURANCE!!! And that’s not $215 each, that is $215 total.Β That’s actually cheaper than the cost from San Francisco to New York…

Why are you still reading this? Get over there now!

Here’s the steps to do it:

  1. Go to their website
  2. Click on the Flights tab
  3. Select Multi-Destination
  4. Enter New York City (JFK) to Milan (MXP) for the first flight and choose a date in or around November
  5. Hit the plus sign to add another destination
  6. Enter Prague (PRG) to Tokyo (NRT) as the second flight, also some time in or around November. (UPDATE: for the second flight you can also fly out of Lisbon and choose other Asian cities to fly into. Bangkok, Beijing, Singapore, and Tokyo are confirmed for cheap flights)
  7. Then book that baby

Play around with the dates. There are tons of people getting all sort of different prices and dates. The best I saw was $177 after taxes. Mine was actually $180 after taxes, but I got the insurance also.

Even if you have no desire to take both flights, this deal actually makes it cheaper to just take one of the flights and skip the other rather than booking the one you want on its own. Crazy.

And remember: Even if you are not sure, book it anyway. You cancel within 24 hours for a full refund if you change your mind.

You should also note that these deals require you to get TO New York and get BACK from Tokyo/Bangkok/Beijing. If you want to find some cheap flights for that, you should read my article “My 3 step process for cheap airline tickets. I recommend using Skyscanner’s “Whole Month” view, and I even have a handy little sidebar widget that you can use for that πŸ™‚

With that trick, I was able to get then ENTIRE round the world trip, L.A. to New York to Europe to China and right back to L.A., all for under $1000. I hope it helps you do the same.

If you do book something, please let me know so I get an idea of just how many people are going to have an amazing journey this November. Either contact me privately or post your flights and dates in the comments so others can see. Maybe we can all meet up somewhere.

  1. Hi Austin, how did you book for a cheaper flight? Did you call Priceline and cancel your ticket, and then rebook another one, or is there something else you did? I booked for $269 but just found tickets for $184. Please let me know!! Thanks so much.

    • Hey Brit. Great question! This was a REALLY annoying thing for me because I missed out on the ideal flight that I wanted due to a conflict on dates, but having been through it now, I can help you.

      Go to your confirmation email and at the top you should see”Flight Confirmation – Your trip number is **********”

      Next to that text there is a link to “View full itinerary.” Click on that link and it will take you to your itinerary page where you will see a tab to cancel flights.

      You will have to cancel before you book your new flight, so just make sure its still available (clear your browser cache and refresh the page just to be sure). After that, book it, fly to Europe, fly to Asia, take lots of amazing pics, make tons of amazing memories, eat lots of amazing food, and tell me all about it when you get back πŸ™‚

      Dont forget to follow on Facebook or Twitter for the updates and share the post so all your friends and family have a shot at it too.

      What were the dates for the cheaper flight by the way?

    • Brit, Im not sure what dates or destinations you are looking at, but I did recently help my dormmate find a flight for $169: JFK > MXP on Nov 12 and PRG > NRT on Dec 10. I also saw someone on Facebook post that they got a flight JFK to Milan then from Lisbon to Bangkok even more recently for about $211. I think its still possible, but might take some more searching. Ive updated the post with some of the other cities I have heard are working. I hope you can find something, and if you do, let me know.

      • I can’t seem to get it to work either, has it been patched?

        Reply
        • My blog, Facebook, and Twitter have all been blowing up about this. The most recent booking Ive seen happened just about 20 minutes ago for about $200. I know its annoying to do a lot of different searches, but I think the deal is still on, you just gotta find it. And if you do, the hundreds of dollars you save will be well worth the hour you spent you spent.

  2. So there’s also the issue of getting from Milan to Prague? I suppose that gets dealt with once you’re there?

    Reply
    • Yeah, you can cross that bridge when you get to it. But I wouldnt consider that so much of a problem as it is an opportunity. There is a lot to see between Milan and Prague and unless you booked your ticket a few days apart, Im sure you’l have a blast seeing it it all πŸ™‚

      Reply
      • There are cheap flights out daily. $48 if you take the PM flight or $78 if you take the first AM flight out. There’s always the train too.

  3. You can get a pretty good price out of LAX! I would so go if I wouldn’t have 3 kids under the age of 5!

    Reply
    • Yeah, LAX and SFO both have flights to JFK for about $200 from what I found. Funny that I paid less for my flight to Milan and Beijing πŸ™‚

      Sorry you cant make it. That’s a bummer.

      Reply
  4. The only catch to this though is getting a flight back home right? Because I’ve been looking at prices returning home and they are pretty steep.

    Reply
    • Edgar, it really depends on how you look at it. Ive flown out to Asia a few times now and to me, $600 is a good deal (you can get some for about $600 from when I last checked). The trip is ALWAYS worth the cost. And with this trip, if you spend more time in Asia than in Europe, your dollar will so VERY far. My whole cost for all flights is just shy of $1000 and for 1 month of travel around the world…you really cant beat it. Anyway, I hope you have an awesome time and let me know if you want to meet up πŸ™‚

  5. I definitely am considering it, I live in Orlando so I’m trying to see how to best arrange all the flights. This would be my first venture abroad to Europe and Asia and I’ve been dying to go so I don’t want to miss on this opportunity. Meeting up would be great πŸ˜€

    Reply
    • I can only put it this way: Put yourself 7 months from now (or roughly on month after your flight back could be), are you going to regret GOING on this trip or are you going to regret NOT GOING?

      Now, I know there are a lot of variables to consider with jobs and work and everything, but this is your life. And this opportunity is here for YOU! Money comes and goes with the wind.

      And besides, November is still 6 months away…plenty of time for the pieces to fall into place. You just gotta put that one big piece in the right place so all the other smaller ones can fall neatly around it.

      Do it, then buy me a beer when we meet up πŸ˜‰

      Reply
      • I’m gonna check back on Tues/Wed and hope the price goes down a bit, it’s 330 right now for the JFK>MXP>PRG>NRT combo which also isn’t bad but wouldn’t mind it cheaper.
        And yeah, definitely beers on me, this is great help and I appreciate it man.

          • David, Im flying out of Beijing which will be going through Manila (33 hours total :/) and its $571 to LAX right now. I havent booked it yet since this one is not a glitch. Ill see what else comes up, but depending on what city you fly into from Europe, a flight home booked in advance should run you around $600. Pretty standard in my experience from South East Asia to the West coast.

        • Oooh, gonna wait on it? Its probably not going down. You should check the other cities as well that I have listed in the second update. I know people ate still getting some for around $200. I wouldnt wait on it, its not likely to go down. But its your call so I can just wish you the best of luck.

          Reply
          • Well I noticed the concern in your tone Austin lol and I actually did just find a cheaper deal just now so I booked it for $292. JFK>Milan Nov 4th then PRG>Beijing Nov 25th. I’m so excited I’ve never been this impulsive before haha. Gonna save up for the journey, and see where I go πŸ˜€ I have some ideas and I’ll def have to buy you a beer for the help man! Maybe I’ll see if I can convince some friends to come, if not I don’t mind a solo adventure!

    • Hey, sorry but from what Im hearing now, it does seem like the deal is over. Theres still seems to be some tickets for really cheap, but not $200 cheap.

      Reply
  6. I just bought LAX->Milan 11/6 PRG->Beijing 11/17. $485. I have no idea what I was thinking and I’m shaking and SO EXCITED because I WANT to travel more than I do and this is how you become who you want to be – you know? πŸ™‚

    • Julie, you hit the nail on the head. You just made me so happy to hear that. This is exactly the kind of response I was hoping to get from people. Im stoked for you, youre going to have a BLAST!!!

      Reply
    • Maybe we’ll run into each other Julie, I’ll be in those cities around the same time. Trust me I was nervous, shaking, and excited too…but sooo worth it in my opinion!

  7. I’m trying to leave from either LAX or JFK and would prefer to go through milan, lisbon, and/or budapest to vietnam or thailand. I’d like to leave in january if possible. What’s the cheapest for these options? I’m finding about 500-600 for the deals.

    Reply
    • Caitlin, from what it sounds like, the ridiculous $200 flights are pretty much gone, but I think you can still get some for around $500 (still an awesome deal). Have you found anything yet?

    I see the amazing prices but it will not allow me to book it.

    Reply
    • I had that same problem on one of the flights. I ended up changing the dates of one of the flights, found the same price, and it worked. Let me know how it goes for you.

      Reply
  9. Great article! I’m playing around with the dates and cant seem to get anything below $600 for JFK-MXP-PRG-NRT…..any specific dates that you know of? Or has this glitch been fixed?

    Reply
    • Im not sure if the glitch has been fixed, but I know the prices are definitely no longer as cheap. Maybe all the cheap ones got picked up already. Still, I have to say that $600 for that deal is pretty freakin sweet. Its not $200, but its still a steal. If you can find anything in the $400 range, I would probably take it.

      Reply
  10. Hey are the prices going up? I can’t get anything under $376!

    Reply
    • Yeah, I think all the cheapest deals are gone, but at $376 youre still lucky. That is an awesome deal for this flight package. I would take it. Did you?

      Reply

    NOOOOO!! I waited too long!!! All back up to over $1,000 πŸ™

    Reply
    • Laura, thats a bummer. Im sorry that you could not find anything. There might still be some out there for around $500 if youre willing. Its still a good deal.

    How did you come upon this deal, any chance something like this will happen again…

    Reply
    • These sorts of things have happened before, but its usually only due to a system error or something like that. These prices were way too good for it to be a promotion of any kind. So, I think it could happen again, but I wouldnt wait around for it.

      Reply
    • It looks like the well has gone dry… I think some people are still finding flights in the $500 range which is still a good deal, but its not $200…sorry

    Ugh, wish I could see the time stamps. It’s Friday 2:30 PST. Still working? πŸ™‚

    Reply
    • Hey, I think the deal is pretty much done. Ive heard of some flights going for around $400 though, if thats still in the budget range. Its still a great deal.

      And I will try to include time stamps in the comments. Most of my posts arent THIS time sensitive, but its a good idea πŸ™‚

      Reply
  15. I am hoping that they do not refund the money and cancel the ticket! Fingers crossed!! How do you know if they do that? Do they send you an email? Or do you just have to watch your credit card?

    Reply
    • Kam, most likely if that were the case they would send an email or call. Can you imagine if they didnt tell anyone and herds of people showed up for canceled flights? haha.

      But the good news is that I heard that airlines now have to honor all bookings even if there was a pricing mistake on their part. Its considered false advertising otherwise. Now, my only concern is that the actual airlines did not advertise those prices for those flights, Priceline did and Priceline is not an airline so I guess well have to wait and see. I havent booked my New York or back home flights yet though.

      Reply
      • I haven’t booked my to NYC or return flight either, was going to wait a bit and see. But hopefully this trip does work out because it’s going to be epic!!!

  16. Is it still active. I’ve tried to search multiple times and still no success ?? Even tried the most recent flights from the comments and no luck 😐 Cheers:))

    • Hey Haza, I think the best deals are definitely gone. You might still be able to find something in the $500 range though. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

    Is this deal still up an working? I can’t seem to get it to work πŸ™

    Reply
    • Lauren, I think it is sadly over. There might be some $500 flights left from what I can gather, but the best ones are gone. Sorry.

      Reply
  18. Austin- thank you! This was seriously amazing. A friend turned me on to your post mid-morning and I jumped on it! We missed out on the best deals (<$200) but my fiance and I ended up paying $350 each (still an AMAZING price) for flights from NYC to Milan in early November and then from Lisbon to Bangkok in early December. We've been looking at multi-destination tickets like this for a while and they are usually in the $2000 range. We were also looking to travel starting in November this year, so basically this could not have worked out better. Again, thank you!

    • Colin, Im just glad to have had the opportunity to share it with so many other people. Seeing others get to experience the world and explore is what gets me pumped. That’s why I write.

      Anyway, bummer you missed the best, but you did still get a KILLER deal, and Im happy to hear that it worked out so perfectly for you two. Stoked!!!

      Anyway, if you really want to thank me, just follow the blog, share the stuff that you think is good, comment, and let me know how I can improve. I always ask for criticisms before compliments, that way I can keep making it better for everyone that comes.

      Anyway, have a blast out there. We will be on a very similar route at the same times so if you want to meet up, let me know. Oh yeah, and please post your dates and what time you booked so others might get a chance still.

    Thank you so much for posting this! A friend sent the link last night at 11:30 pm and my husband and I booked by midnight. Hoping Priceline honors it but so excited. We were supposed to go to Europe this year and then it didn’t look like it was going to happen with work schedules, but with a deal like this — and the destinations — we couldn’t pass it up so THANK YOU! We leave Nov 18 and go JFK-MXP, then PRG-BKK. Just also hoping that Thailand’s political issues are resolved πŸ˜‰

  21. Anonymous 6:50 PM, let's presume that you're not being sarcastic with your remark.Now let's follow the logic. He's the greatest Afaneri-Amcrican president this country has ever had. He's also the only African-American president this country has ever had. Which then makes him also the worst African-American president this country has ever had.If that's what you meant then I apologize for needing to re-state it so bluntly.
