    Next month I'm driving Mother Dearest out to Florida. 55 years of avoiding Florida sadly come to an end, but I'm getting off subject.
    I need to fly from West Palm Beach to San Antonio (or Austin), one way.
    I know people commonly buy a round trip ticket for this purpose and just don't use the return portion. Is this still the best deal?

    You'd have to compare fares, if southwest services both cities they'll certainly be the cheapest, and they charge each way usually, so it shouldn't matter. Too bad you're not on the east coast, jet blue would be a good option too.

    Airlines will usually void any discounts associated with round-trip travel if you don't use the return ticket.

    you have to look around.my situation last week:i wanted to fly from boston to raliegh nc. i got a air-tram one way ticket for $139 and had to connect through atlanta,which is out of the way and took longer,but the ticket was $95 cheaper than a direct flight from boston to raliegh.so you have to look around and ask questions.
