One of the common problems of frequent travelers face during check-in is providing return/onward ticket to the airlines and immigration. This is a basic requirement by majority of the countries as many become stricter with their policies. This is not an issue if you have fixed schedule and itinerary. But for someone like me who doesn’t know which country I will fly from going back to my country or not even knowing when I’m going home usually, this poses as a big issue to me. Unless of course, I am willing (every time) to shell out extra money for cheap ticket that I won’t use just to have something to show.
Then I heard people who use old tickets and edit them through PDF editor or any basic editing software. It’s a cool idea but for a noob like me, this is serious threat to my brain’s equilibrium :P. This is the reason why when I found out this site that does the job for you, I almost sent a message to the website’s creator to ask him to marry me! Okay, enough of introduction. Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to create fake return ticket without editing skill.
Step 1: Click on this link: http://www.returnflights.net and fill up the necessary information.
a. Use real flight details such as flight number, ticket price date and time to make it more authentic. You can use www.skyscanner.com for that.
b. Do not use the same airline as your outbound ticket for obvious reason that airline can easily check your record to their system.
c. Use a different airport/ origin/ country from your outbound ticket. For example, when I went to Europe, my outbound flight is Manila-Prague via Dubai. I created a fake ticket that originated from Munich (not Prague) to Manila via Bangkok. This is because normally round-trip ticket is cheaper and it’s unusual to use a different airline if you’re just going to fly out from the same airport of your destination. So to avoid suspicion, better use a different flight origin.
Step 2: Click on “Create Ticket” button at the bottom of the form and save the .zip file.
Step 3: Unzip the .zip file, click on the “returnFlight” folder and then click on the agent.dll.htm which will direct you the html link of the ticket.
Step 4: Just right click to “print” it. If you want a soft copy, then just click on “open PDF in preview” after you click on “print”. From PDF preview, you can now save the ticket on your computer or mobile phone.
I have used this website in my recent trip to Europe and immigrations and airlines really scrutinized them so I can really recommend that this trick works. I also created rush fake tickets for my cousin and her boyfriend when they flew in from Saigon to Bangkok and the airline won’t let them in without onward tickets. So to the rescue, I used the similar process and in less than 10 minutes I managed to send the tickets to their emails and they were able to fly. Obviously, you also have to be confident in answering the airline personnel and immigrations because none of these will work if you act like you are hiding something.
