In order to offer you as a customer the absolute lowest prices, you can book a journey that is composed of two one-way journeys.
Booking two one-way journeys can give you more flexibility and can be cheaper, but there are things to consider when choosing two one-way journeys instead of one return journey.
When you have booked two one-way journeys, your journeys are handled independently of each other, which means that;
- The journeys are completely separate with different tickets and thus also different ticket rules.
- Should you receive a timetable change or flight cancellation on one of your journeys, it is not permitted to change or cancel the other journey free of charge, as the journeys are not connected in the eyes of the airline.
- Should an involuntary schedule change or flight cancellation occur on one of your journeys, your other journey will not be affected, therefore any change or cancellation of the other journey will be considered as voluntary and its fare rules will apply. So if e.g. your outbound journey is canceled and the airline offers a refund for that journey, you are not entitled to any refund for the return journey if it operates according to the plan.
- In case of voluntary changes of both of your tickets, you will have to pay double the change fees, as charges are per ticket.
Whether a journey is two one-way journeys or one return journey is shown on the booking page where you select the flights.
