Which is the cheapest throwaway ticket?
« on: April 07, 2017, 07:16:03 PM »
I am planning to come back to this lovely country.
Is it OK to ask here?
Which is the cheapest throwaway ticket? (I often use Air Asia, but the old one Clark-Kota Kinabalu is gone.)
I come from Sweden. How many days do I get before I must go to immigration if I enter on my passport and onward ticket only?
Thanks.

While this is the wrong section for visa questions, I will answer your question here since one question belongs here. You can stay 30 days without a visa and usually the day of arrival does not count in the 30 days, Sweden is on the list at the link below.

So how many days before you have to go get your renewal will depend on if the 30 days falls on a weekend or a holiday, if so then you have to go before that. Also you can usually extend your visa at the airport of arrival for another 29 days.

I do not know the answer to your other question, I am sure someone else will answer it for you.

Thanks. You guys are always helpful. I just can't seem to find the copy of the one I used last time, that was after Clark-KK stopped running.

One suggestion I could make it why not buy a refundable onward or return ticket and then once here, ask for the refund.

It's much easier to purchase a roundtrip ticket with confirmed travel dates, if you only plan to stay for a short period or within your visa dates without overstaying.

You can also try checking flights from Cebu Pacific airline and other online agencies (like expedia, skyscanner, etc..)  for price comparison if I remember it right, thrre's piso fare right now from Manila to Guangzhou, China.

Thank you for your information and suggestions. I live in Asia most of the time and I seldom go back to Europe, not sure of next destination. There are sometimes fees and bureaucracy with refundable tickets, but maybe I just haven't found the right options.
Thanks.

Yes I know from experience, once refundable tickets are paid for, they are a pain to get refunded and yes they take part of your refund that you are trying to get refunded so you will not get all of what you paid for them in the first place, just a percentage. Sometimes one-way tickets comes close to round trip ticket prices.

You can cancel all flights within 24 hours for a free refund.

Buy a cheap flight, print confirmation, cancel reservation.

Proof of onward flight for free.

I thought everyone knew this trick?

Yeah, that is a pretty good trick all right.  Present them with an onward confirmation that has been cancelled.  I don't need to worry about that stuff now but what is the problem with plucking down 40 to 50 bucks for an onward and avoid headaches and do away with the chance of getting nailed at the airport?  To try and save a few bucks?

All of them.
What about the cheap flights that are not refundable.  You know, the ones that say, "Non-Refundable"?
Whatever floats your boat.
