Hey to all the seasoned air travellers...I have been planning to go to Australia for the past few months. My sister is there until February and I wanted to go travel with her for a bit. But she emailed me today with an idea that struck me as rather interesting as well. She is going to Bangkok before heading back to Canada and traveling around there for a while and thought it would be kinda cool if I joined her there instead before heading to Oz.

My question is this. What kind of flight would I get? Would I just have to buy separate ones? Or is there a special kind that I can get to take me from Toronto-Bangkok and then over to Sydney? I was thinking perhaps a round the world ticket, but I don't really know how these work either.

Anyone have any advice? Or should I just head to a travel agent and bug them?

I think a travel agent may be beneficial. You can buy all one way tickets, but you have to look really hard to get overseas one way tickets cheap and book ahead. A good site is Sidestep or if you're a student, Student Universe. They do one way tickets at regular OW prices. There are a few others, but I found those two to be the best.

You can also get a RT ticket from Toronto. Some sights (can't think of any offhand!) allow you to land and depart in two different cities (Tor-Bang, Syd-Tor). Then, you'd just have to get a OW ticket from Bangkok to Sydney.

You can start by pricing those out. If it seems affordable, I'd say book. If not, then hit up the travel agents. I'm sure they've dealt with many, many situations like yours.
