Are Southwest one-way flights cheap?

Purchasing two separate one-way tickets might can often be less pricy than booking a roundtrip flight. However, this isn't always guaranteed. When there aren't enough seats for the number of passengers who wish to fly, the airline may increase the prices of flights. Given that prices change frequently, it's difficult to say whether Southwest one-way flights are less expensive than roundtrip trips.

What is the difference between a one-way and roundtrip flight?

One-way flights are flights that only fly you to a destination and don't include a ticket back to the departure city. A two-way ticket is an itinerary that includes two flights (e.g. one flight going to LAX and another coming back from LAX).

Do I need a visa for one-way flights?

This all depends on the length of your stay and the nation you travel to. A travel visa is an official document that lets visitors from another nation enter or stay in that nation for a period of time. Please make sure to research the visa requirements of the country you're flying to if you're considering relocating.
