Why Book One Way Flights

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

Cheaper Flights

One-way tickets can often be less expensive than round-trip tickets, so many travellers will choose to buy two separate one-way tickets to save money. Depending on the airline you're flying with and the locations you're travelling to, round-trip flights can frequently be expensive.


Greater Flexibility

You can return home whenever you want by purchasing a one-way ticket! With a one-way ticket, you can be incredibly flexible and stay as long as you desire wherever you're going and then when you feel like you want to go back home or to the place from which you originally took off, all you have to do is buy a one-way ticket back! With a one-way flight, you can stay abroad for days, weeks or even months.



Another reason as to why people may buy one-way tickets is due to permanent relocation to another country. Usually, when people move abroad they only book one-way flights since they have no plan to return from the original departure city for a while.
