    Probably, but would cost more I would say.

    Do you possess Canadian Citizenship?

    Think some countries have issues with this depending if your a citizen of the country/ies or not.

    Ie they want proof your not planning to stay forever!

    Cant you get an open ended ticket that you have to use in a fixed period of time (ie: within 6 months) where as all you have to do is book and confirm the flight back? I know you used to be able to do that for some countries (such as UK, Australia), but I havent travelled for about 8 years so it may have all changed.

    It often makes it much easier going through immigration if you have a return ticket.

    You can buy a return ticket and effortlessly change the return date. I am not aware of any airlines that won't let you do this. Air NZ do it for $50.

    Prob issue with immigration.

    Canada does not have cheaper airlines with NZ, so you have only the larger carriers. When I looked at them, they do charge something like 70% of a return ticket for a one way ticket.

    I think you can change dates, there may be a fee involved diff to each airline and you need to pay the difference in fare as well. Extreme example - you booked a offpeak ticket, then you change the return date around Xmas/NYRs, of course you need to pay the fare adjustment Until payment has been received in full for that particular date/flight, fares will need to be adjusted on a 1-1 basis. Unless you buy an open ticket but look at the conditions

    Usually with most fares on so so sales - there is a validity date when you can travel for that price.

    I would get an open ended return as I think they only need a couple of weeks notice of when you want to fly, I've done it before and I'm pretty certain you wouldn't be let in without a return ticket of some kind. You really don't want to P*ss off immigration, I nearly got thrown out of Canada years ago and I wish I had played by the rules as it was a major headache if they had of thrown me out
    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    Get people to watch very closely, because you can do that only once.

    Telling the airline "I didn't like the ride, you can just take me home and refund my money" won't work either.
