Why book one-way flights

Booking one-way tickets has its benefits - below you'll find a few reasons as to why many travellers book one-way flights instead of round-trip flights:

Cheaper Flights

If you're lucky, a one-way ticket can often be cheaper than if you book a round-trip or return ticket. Round-trip flights can be expensive but this all depends on the airline you're flying with and where you're flying to. Flights to Thailand can be pricey, but if you'd like to save a few pennies, you can book two one-way tickets to/from Thailand which may be cheaper.

Greater Flexibility

Booking one-way flights is great if you don't want to have a time restriction on your holiday. If you're not sure when you'd like to return from your vacation, you can be as flexible as possible by booking a one-way ticket and spending days, weeks or even months away before booking another one-way ticket home!


Moving can be stressful, especially if you're moving from one city or country to another. One-way flights to Thailand are extremely popular for relocation purposes. If you're not sure whether you'll need to return to where you came from, you can always book a one-way ticket back to your original location whenever you need to.
