Your problem could be, that you might be asked to show a ticket out of Thailand before you are allowed to board the plane. Also the Thailand immigration might ask you. So not the best idea, but it is up to you if you want to take the chance.

One way to find out Dave, would be for you to do a dummy booking yourself.

Your friend was telling you the truth, this used to be the case. Booking your flights in two legs (1 over, the other back) from home, would often be cheaper than booking a return flight.

I haven’t bothered to look lately, but you should keep in mind that a “service fee” may be included in the one booking, so this would be times two.

If you’re looking to save some money Dave have a look at the Air Asia website tomorrow. You’ll see a lot of inexpensive flights.

Have fun
