I just signed up with xe.com and they needed me to call and speak to a representative to clear up a question. That taken care of, I asked if it mattered that I was moving, and they said it was fine.

Re: Help! Scared and confused about using one-way ticket

Re: Help! Scared and confused about using one-way ticket

I can certainly do that. Also, someone recommended talking a travel agent into making one of those "dress rehearsal" type itineraries just for something to show. Eh maybe, I don't know.
