Questions about purchasing flight tickets in Thailand.

Recommended Posts

Hey there. Have a predicament here. I'm schedule to leave sometimes in September from Los Angeles to Thailand for my long awaited retirement.

 

I might have to return to the states in a month or two later however...for a stupid,utterly dumb reason. But MAYBE NOTTTTT. I might not have to return at all. I don't know at this time. I won't know till I'm told. 

 

I have the option of buying an open round trip ticket,good for 3 months for $1,300 or just buying one way ticket for approximately $650,which I'm really leaning toward.

 

So just in case I'd have to return to America.

 

How does it compare buying tickets there in Thailand to the states? One way or round trip?

 

Do they cost more or less or basically the same? I've bought tickets there for my travels in Asia but not to Farang Land,if you know what I mean.

 

What do you suggest I do?

 

Thank you

first I am pretty sure depending on your age you need a return ticket for arrival unless you can get the appropriate visa to stay without return ticket.

tickets are approximately the same.

these days you may as well by them on line direct from air line so no difference at all;

however one way tickets are always more expensive

Ask a silly question and i'll leave a silly answer  

Would have been easier if you googled it yourself.

I found air tickets to be a little more expensive when bought in Thailand. Maybe 10-20% more.

 

I think the reason is that not many Thais travel compared to Westerners. Therefore there is not as much competition and discounting by the ticket sellers.

 

Obviously I dont know the details of your situation, but from what I read I would go for the 1-way ticket. Maybe you can use price/availability of flights as an excuse to avoid going back if the situation arises :)

 

Enjoy you retirement.

Next trip Aug 31-Sep13, theme: try more freelancers, get dirty! Note to self: TAKE MORE PHOTOS!!!

Two points

 

1. Tickets from Thailand out bound are usually a little more expensive

 

2. In my experience, and others may differ, I get (slightly) better prices from "agents" here than I can get online for outbound flights. I am not sure if this is the norm' but makes them worth checking out.

I'll have retirement o-a visa.

 

Par 47 Enjoy you retirement.    You have no idea. Have been counting down the days for 16 fxxking years mate!!

 

The worst part about this is that I have not idea IF and When exactly I'd have to return or NOT. But not permanently...just for a week or two to make an arrangement.  So. Its not the end of the world my pal tells me.

 

thanks

That is not my experience. In 2012 I paid approx £3000 (in Baht) for return Business Class BKK-LHR -ABZ (Aberdeen) My daughter told me her neighbour paid over £5000 for the trip starting in Aberdeen at about the same time.

 

In May this year I paid £2400 (in Baht) to BA for return Biz class same trip from BKK. When in Aberdeen I decided to come back earlier than my return ticket showed. I looked at the BA website to check  avaiability of seats (sometimes the ABZ -LHR is the problem) and they were showing  a price for one way ABZ -LHR-BKK as £4750. Incidently it cost 2500 Baht to change as i am no longer Silver class.

Sex without love is an empty experience;

 

But as empty experiences go, it is one of the best.

I live here and always book through the airline site itself.  Delta has been the cheapest for the last couple of years - unless you go with a China or Korean long layover airline... Shouldn't be a problem to book with the airline online wherever you are.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
