Proof of onward travel required?

Posted by gottagetaway on 10/5/2011 at 02:45

My one-way flight from LAX to BKK (Air Berlin) leaves this saturday. I'm deciding my travels from there as I go.
Is it true that I need proof of onward travel to board the plane? Or when I arrive?

If so, what is the cheapest way to find an onward ticket, either ground or air, just to use as proof, assuming that I probably will not use it.

Are there any other alternatives? I had heard of an exemption if you were able to offer proof of finances to prove you won't be a burden, but my monies are spread across a few accounts.

I appreciate any input anyone may offer!

Air asia. Buy a ticket and get refunded later. there may be a small fee....but check their site.
The trouble will most likely be from your airline not the Thais.

Thank you Thomas! As far as I can tell, Air Asia doesn't let you compare ticket prices - any recommendation as to the cheapest out-of-Thailand destination, from any Thai airport?

from looking at, the cheapest out of Bkk is to Rangon, Myanmar. if you have any other suggestions of airports to fly out of or into, for cheaper, please let me know!
