Updated *A RTW Spreadsheet (Updated 1 Jan 2011)

I updated my spreadsheet so all prices should be accurate. The link is the same as has been linked in the Useful Reference Links thread in the FAQ, link here.

As a side question, do the taxes and fees get charged in the local currency also? I figured that'd be pretty relevant with the Krona and Won situation as compared to the dollar.

Thanks for the spread sheet. Lots of useful data.

Re your question, I am not 100% sure. I think it makes sense if tax and fees are charged in local currency.

Did I read this right?

FSTAR1 ex-Iceland is $3900 and CSTAR1 is $2200? I'm gonna have to get on this and start my planning sooner than I had anticipated! I've been wanting to plan my first RTW in C or F and this looks like it just might be the best thing!

I just found out about the crazy prices ex kef better late than never

OnVista and others still claim an exchange rate of 285 ISK to the Euro.

Any news if the RTW is still bookable for the $2200?

From the Bank of Canada website, the Iceland exchange rate has never been 225 to the USD. It is close to 125 now, the high was 03 Dec 2008 147.71 ISK.

That's close to the high BID (though my source says 147.68). The high ASK rate was 152.621.

Thank you for the quick replies. Seems that some forex websites are not correct or have some kind of percentages added to the "raw" price.

I am also getting about 125 to the usd right now, which would be about 2850 Euro für a C RTW ex KEF.

Is 2850 Euro a realistic price at the moment? Purchasable or just hypothetical Would LH ticket this ex KEF?

Whats the cheapest C RTW location to start from Europe? BTW the Y RTW ex LHR seems to the cheapest worldwide at the moment @ 1400 Euros.

Cheers, asmallworld

I used the yahoo currency exchange rates, so I don't know how accurate they are. Did anyone know the answer to my question in the OP? I think I found a way for a very very cheap RTW that I wanted to share with FT, but I want to be sure the taxes and such are in the local currency.
