    No. There is more than one word in my sentence.

    With Matthew's suggestion in mind, how could you rewrite that?

    Re: Both side travel.

    ... to London. The company ...

    Oh, Tufguy, really?

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Both side travel.

    It would be quite extraordinary for a company to send an employee on a business trip and only pay to send him there, and expect him to pay for his own way home.

    Simply say that they are sending him to London on a business trip. There is no need to specify they are paying for it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Maybe they don't want him to come back.

    Re: Both side travel.

    Matthew is right for me with round trip if you really wish to stress that the company is doing what 99.99% of companies do when sending someone abroad.
