Of course I'm going to buy a return ticket rather than one way ticket. Because flying one-way with many of the major carriers is normally far more expensive than half of a return due to the way airlines price flights (not as unusual as you might think!). And if you spend a lot of time reading up on the visa/entry requirements for countries around the world as I do, you’ll realize that a high percentage of countries do require tourists to have a return ticket in order to be granted entry.
Of course I like to have my return ticket with an open return date because I'm flexible. I don't have to fit in with the date of return, which I initially appointed when purchasing a return ticket. Especially if I plan a longer stay and I don't know exactly when I'll be back.
Of course flexible return tickets are VERY expensive and the longer the ticket is open, the more expensive it will be. So next option is to book the flight back way past the intended return date but close enough so that I'm not indicating to an immigration officer that I will overstay my visa requirements. Then I'll just buy a new ticket to get back home instead of using my old one.
Sounds like a hell lot of hassle and money? I know. That's why I use returnflightonwardtravel.com!
I don't have to spend a helluva lot of money for a return ticket that most probably won't be use. Or buy a flexible/open return ticket where I have to pay additional fee for every changes I make.
How much money I spend? Only $9.99! Now, this may sound a little shady to you.
The $9.99 you're paying is basically just a deposit so you can't actually use the flight but the ticket is enough for the purpose of showing proof of onward travel and it's cheaper than paying for an actual flight which you are not going to use.
I have been using them after that incident and it works all the time without any problems.
You can also get it for for as low as $3.99 or FREE!
