Hello fellow travelers,
Like many of you, I've stumble upon the "Proof of onward travel" way too often. Especially while nomad-ing in South-East Asian countries. Many places (airlines, to be exact), such as Bali or Thailand, require a return ticket, before they check you in. I don't have an intention to overstay the visa period, but buying tickets a month in advance kills my flexibility.
I tried out a few sites that generate fake booking confirmations and temporary tickets and never been happy with any of them. Though paying for their services. So I decided to create a new site, that generates exact copies of Expedia booking confirmations, so I can use it myself. But also would like to share it, if some find it useful too.
Some more notes:
- It's FREE while in beta.
- Use at your own risk. Site takes not responsibility whatsoever for any consequences of use.
- Pick an airline that's different from the one you are actually flying with.
- Confirmation is an exact copy of Expedia confirmation. Let me know if you can spot the difference.
- Itinerary numbers are unique. (but of course are not registered in Expedia)
- Flight information is real (real airlines, prices, flight numbers, duration, stops, etc…)
- It does not create a PNR. (Afaik, Expedia does not create a PNR right away either for flights that are weeks away)
- I've never been asked a proof of onward travel by immigration (YMMV), but always by airlines.
- I've flew with a generated ticket last week to Bali — airline crew took my onward ticket, keyed-in the airline and flight number in their system (and probably date). They did not key-in itinerary number or booking number. I checked in successfully, without questions.
Would like to get feedback on this
- What could be improved?
- Are there good proven alternatives to faking onward tickets?
- In your experience, which countries/airports have been strict and do verify the validity of tickets?
