OnwardFly is an exclusive Flight Ticket Rental Service. We provide you with international flight tickets (travel itineraries) with your name on them to use as proof of onward travel plans when you travel abroad.
Why? Because in many countries around the world, you will not be allowed to enter as a tourist without proof of onward travel. Put simply, if you have a one-way ticket and no proof of future plans, you can be refused entry. Our service gives you proof of onward travel, without the hassle of paying for expensive airfares upfront. You simply “rent” the ticket for a small fee.
This website is developed and operated by digital nomads who have been traveling around the world for years. We have experienced the hassle of onward ticket rules and wasting money on tickets that you never actually use. OnwardFly’s ticket service is provided by an air travel agency who is legally allowed to purchase refundable tickets on behalf of their customers, and to cancel the ticket purchase after a maximum period of 48 hours. However, if you need a ticket that lasts more than 48 hours, please contact us for a quote.
If you’re about to fly into a country with a tourist visa, but you’re not sure how long you want to stay for or where your next destination will be, you should consider using our ticket rental service. Here’s why: without evidence of an onward flight, you could be suspected of planning to overstay your visa. Obviously you’re not going to do that! However, without the onward ticket as proof, you could be denied permission to board your flight or cross the country’s border. Many people in this situation have no choice but to book expensive onward flights to places they didn’t plan on going, at prices they didn’t want to pay, just to show they plan on leaving the country before their visa expires.
By booking an onward ticket, you need to provide us with your title, full name, date of your desired onward flight, and of course your departure & arrival airports. We’d recommend to set your arrival airport to a different place from your original departure country to make it an onward trip instead of a return trip, unless a return ticket is required.
After an order is made, our staff will process the booking with your provided information. An email with your e-ticket (a PDF file) will be sent to you immediately from the airline (not from us). You can print out this ticket. The ticket will come with a “Confirmed” status which means has been paid in full. After that, you can go to the website of the airline, select “Manage My Booking” menu, input your name and booking reference code to see details of your ticket. Sounds great, right? These tickets are the real deal.
Depending on your booking option, the ticket will last for exactly 24 hours or 48 hours, so all you need to do is make sure you’re arriving at your destination within 24 hours or 48 hours of booking your onward flight with us. The ticket will be automatically canceled after that period. Contact us for a quote if you need a ticket that lasts more than 48 hours.
The tickets are legitimate. They are booked and paid for by us. Therefore, you can legally use them as proof of your onward ticket. We don’t allow you to book a flight that departs very soon after your arrival, which means that there is plenty of time for the ticket purchase to be cancelled and you will never need to actually use the ticket.
We do all the hard work for you! This means we automatically cancel the tickets 24 hours or 48 hours (depending on your booking option) after they are purchased, leaving you free to enjoy your trip.
