Melissa, It's pretty unlikely you'll be challenged, but if you don't have a return/onward ticket you may be asked to show you have the money to support yourself for the duration of your stay. Take a print-out of your bank statement and show them you have a credit card. Also tell them you intend travelling on, but haven't decided on plane or train and will purchase a ticket in Spain. Smile, be nice. What will get you into trouble is anything that indicates you intend to stay and/or work, so DO NOT have a copy of your C.V. on your laptop.
And just to be clear about Schengen area visa: you can stay for a total of 90 days in a 6 month period - that's all Schengen countries. Don't overstay your visa, make sure you get an entry stampi in Spain (otherwise when you try to leave from say, Germany, they'll have no official record of how you got in).

I'm also traveling on a one way ticket and I have the same concerns you had. I see you got in fine, but did they ask you to show anything? Just want to be prepared as possible. Thanks! almost 7 years agoAnswered by Kevin via WorldNomads.com
well i took a bus in from france with a tour group so we didnt even get asked... i cant see them really questioning you though..
i flew in also with a one way ticket in to croatia from spain and didnt get questioned at all..
make sure you have a story to back yourself up if you do get questioned.. act confident and have proof of any further travel plans or bookings..
thats all i can really say.. i hope this helps and puts your mind at ease a bit
