What happens if I buy a round trip flight & only use one way?

What occurs if I book a round trip flight and only use one way?

There are many airlines that introduce various deals and discount offers to help save money for the passengers. Some airlines understand that airlines are the major part of the travel that affects passengers' travel and expenses to a large extent. Leading to this, it has been seen that not only to save their money but also to improve their business and as a part of customer retention, they create such discounts that benefit both the ends. 

One such benefit is the round trip. There are airlines that offer round trip journeys at a lower fare as compared to other types of journeys. Thinking of this, there are many passengers who get the advantage of this offer and some of them take undue advantage. 

Hence, if you are thinking to buy a round-trip ticket and only use one-way to save your money then you are mistaken. Here is what happens when passengers try to do such a thing. 

Getting the Information About Consequences on Using One-way Tickets After Booking Round Trip!

  • When a passenger does such a thing to save his money by booking a round trip and using it one-way then it is a violation of contract carriage. 
  • This situation is also called throwaway ticketing and in such a situation the airline may or may not pursue you for acting like this. 
  • Also, if you are a member of the frequent flyer program of your travel companion and think that you can get the benefit under this section then you might cause trouble for yourself. As your travel companion may choose to revoke your membership and also take back the miles and benefits that you collected by being loyal to them. 
  • There are passengers who try to play with airlines by having conversations without being mistaken or for any other reason. But, this is such a ploy for the airline that your intent, in any case, will not be justified. 
  • If a passenger genuinely missed the flight of a round-trip and they converse with ticketing experts at the airport then they might arrange another flight to reach where you want to but still will cease all your advantages in your round trip journey. 

After getting to know about the consequences of what shall be happening to you if you perform such a game. So, even if you get the best discounts on a round trip then also you need to plan accordingly. However, if you want the same discount on your one-way trip then you can confirm the details first before you get the bookings done with your airlines.
