Hello all,

I'm a litle confused and wondred if anyone could help me out on this one, or i'll be forever trying to find the answers on the net!

I am planning to go to Oz for quite some time and want to know about flights...i've heard of open ended flights-but is this the same as one way?

Everything i go and search on there is either the option to book a return flight, multi-stop or one way, so i am a little confused (that's prob just my normal state!)

I may be away for a few months, maybe a couple of years-i just don't know and am going to go with the flow!

Be grateful if anyone could give me some answers and de-confuse me a lil bit!!

Hi
An "open ended ticket" as far as I know is a return ticket but NO return date!! and is valid for3-6 months/1 year!!!!!,whatever you want to buy.
When the time comes when you want to return within the times you confirm it by the Airline or Travel Agent!!
Hope this helps and enjoy your travels.
al de bes
