Why book one-way flights

There are many advantages to booking one-way tickets - these include cheaper flights, more flexibility with your travel plans and also for permanent relocation.

Cheaper Flights

Instead of booking a round-trip or return flight, why not book two separate one-way tickets? Depending on the airline you're flying with and where you're flying to/from, round-trip flights can be very expensive compared to one-way flights. Flights to New Zealand are often very expensive due to the flight duration and the popularity of the country, so try booking separate one-way tickets to and from New Zealand and save money!

Greater Flexibility

If you're aching to go on vacation but not sure how long you want to go away for and when you'd like to return, why not book a one-way flight? Spend as long as you need to in a destination of your choice and when you think it's time to return home, book your one-way ticket back to where you originally came from! Please note that travel and visa requirements will vary however you can stay in New Zealand for up to 6 months!


Moving to another city or country can be stressful, especially if you need to fly back and forth from your former place of residence to your new home - this can end up being very expensive. Instead, you can book a one-way ticket to your new home and if you need to return to your previous address, you can book another one-way ticket back!
