Why Book One Way Flights

There are many reasons why travellers book one-way tickets instead of round-trip tickets:

Cheaper Flights

Many travellers book a one-way flight ticket as a strategy to save money - two separate one-way tickets can often be cheaper than a roundtrip ticket. Cheap one-way tickets are popular among low-cost carrier airlines.

Greater Flexibility

One-way flight tickets offer greater flexibility than return flights! With a one-way ticket, you can spend as long as you want in your holiday destination - when you're ready to return home or fly back to where you departed from, all you need to do is book a one-way ticket back!


A one-way flight is perfect for those who are planning to permanently relocate to another city. If you're planning to move abroad, you may be uncertain when you'll want to fly back e.g. to visit family and friends. Round-trip flights are too restrictive, but with a single flight ticket, you have the freedom to return whenever you'd like.
