Is it possible to use a 2-4-1 voucher to book travel one way?

Looking to use a 2-4-1 companion voucher but can only find the outbound flight that matches the date we are looking at, is it possible to book outbound as a reward flight using the voucher and booking revenue flight for the return? Our dates are not that flexible as it concerns a significant birthday, looking as LAS at end of August nothing else going into other "local" airports

Itís certainly possible to book a one-way using the voucher but the problem is the one-way cash fare back will be very expensive as BA donít do cheap one-way TATL fares. And unlike Virgin, BA donít let you combine an avios booking with half a round-trip cash fare.

Have you looked at East Cost back on BA, especially NYC, or ATL which is often good for availability. You could try a separate ticket to there if needed although better for it to be on AA.

Otherwise your options for a one-way back could be to use Norwegian - subject to your confidence in their finances - or use miles on another airline.

Have a look at the main 2-4-1 thread; yes you can use one way only originating in UK. However, a return BA flight will be prohibitively expensive on a one way.

BA American Express 2-4-1 Voucher Discussion

Cash prices are very reasonable return in Club World (£1300each), especially if you consider knocking off the amount of Avios you were willing to use on the voucher, as well as factoring in the Avios you will earn:

Virgin stopped offering the "Combi fare" a good few years ago when they merged onto Delta's IT because the Delta IT system couldn't support it. It was a sad day
