    Default Return Tickets

    Hi,

    Does anyone know how long a return air ticket is valid for. I am planning on using the return part but maybe not for 2-3 years.

    Thanks

    Mark

    Depends on the airline, can be between 3-12months but I have never seen one you can use for longer than that.. I guess coz of price changes etc.

    I've only heard of open tickets being valid for 12 months.

    I not sure you can get anything good past 1 year. Ask a local travel agent.
