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

"My friend's company is sending him to London. Company is paying for the going and coming or for the both side travel."

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

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.

Maybe they don't want him to come back.

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.

Okay, so I can say "My friend's company is sending him to London. The company is paying for the round trip."

Who would want to come back from London. If this happened, he would think like this "yes, this is what I wanted one way trip."

I'm always happy to come home from London!

I don't. I do enjoy being in London, but I wouldn't want to live there- visiting it a couple of times a year is enough. Many who go there find that life is a lot harder than they had imagined.

Yes, I live in England but I don't live in London. That's why I'm always happy to come home from London. It's too big, crowded, noisy, dirty and expensive. I always feel like I need a shower after a day out in London!
