One Way Ticket- Onward Travel Required?

Recommended Posts

I have been to Thailand 6 times, coming from the USA. When I leave the USA to come to Thailand, I like to come on a one way ticket, as I am never sure when I want to return. I have a retirement visa,which I renew yearly, so that is not my problem. The last 2 times, when I tried to check in at the airport, in the USA, traveling on American Airlines, the ticket agent gave me a VERY hard time and almost didn't let me fly because I had a one way ticket. Even though I bought the one way ticket through American Airlines.com . He said that I must have proof of "onward travel". Finally, after much fighting and calling several supervisors I was allowed to fly. I don't want this problem every time. Any suggestions, besides buying a expensive round trip ticket and changing the dates as needed. Do you think it would be OK, if I bought a cheap bus/train ticket inside Thailand showing travel to Loas/Cambodia?

Generally onward travel needs to be an air ticket, not always with the same airline.

The issue is that if for whatever reason you are refused entry to Thailand (as unlikely as that may be) the airline is responsible for flying you back to your country at their expense and they also have to pay a sometimes hefty fine for for allowing you to fly without all required docs (in your case a ticket).

Some airines enforce it more than others, some not at all.

I'd look at buying a cheap Air Asia ticket to Cambodia or KL as a way around it. They are only $40 or so, sometimes even cheaper.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)
