One way ticket

Hello everyone,

I'm going to India in Oct 06 :D and want to get a one way ticket, but I'm worried I won't be allowed into India without a return ticket, or proof I will be leaving after my 6mth stay. Can anyway put my mind at rest:confused: I'm hoping the trouble in Nepal will calm down as one option was to fly to Nepal with a stop over in India, this will sort this problem out but as yet this looks unlikely with all the trouble going on out there[cry] .

I'm also considering booking up two nights in a hotel/guest house recommend in the Lonely Planet, as some of them have an email address, so I thought I could arrange this via email before I leave. I only want a budget place and only considering doing this so if my pack goes missing I will have an address to give to forward it on once it arrives. Can any one suggest a cheap, but comfy :cool: place as I'll be jet lagged and will need to get over the cultural shock [Blush] also the heat when I arrive (it's been 12 yrs since I was last in India so I would imagine it's changed quite a lot [whoa] ).

Thank you and I've found this site already very usful

You can arrive with a one-way ticket. It's not a problem.

one way ticket and hotel booking?

Thanks that's a relief. Any advise on my other queries? :confused:

Please bear in mind that sometimes it is cheaper to buy a return ticket than to buy a one way ticket.

I remember a relative needing a one way ticket from Birmingham(UK) to Delhi in 2004. It was actually cheaper to buy a discounted return ticket than to buy a one way ticket on the same airline. My relative used the ticket for the flight out then bought a single ticket back to the UK from India.

In recent years the Embassy doesn't ask to see the ticket when issuing the tourist visa, and no one at Indian immigration in new Delhi has ever checked my ticket.
