Using only the 1st part of a R/T ticket internationally

Jump to last reply

I've started thinking about the summer, and while skimming through some plane fares trying to get a grip on what they're like now, I noticed that Amsterdam-EWR was easily 1,200 but Amsterdam-EWR-Amsterdam was 720!
While I'm DEFINITELY not ready to be purchasing summer tickets yet, it made me wonder...

If one were to purchase a round trip ticket and just not use the second half, is there anything that could go wrong? What do you say at customs in Amsterdam to keep from getting in trouble (assuming that: I want to go back home and I bought a round trip ticket because it's cheaper is NOT the right thing to say)
Will they ask about the return portion at customs?

Or is this not something to worry about?

Thanks!
