How to Book It!

Link:   Google Flights

Here’s how to use Google Flights to find sale dates.

If you book a ticket with an online travel agency like Orbitz or Expedia, you may be eligible for a refund within a short time of booking your ticket.  Check out my post on cancellation policies for airlines and online travel agencies for more details!

What’s the Deal?

You can fly from New York or Chicago to Paris starting at ~$492 round-trip through April.

I was able to find round-trip flights from Chicago to Paris this spring!  This would make a perfect trip to visit the Louvre, enjoy the cafes, and walk over the bridges to Notre Dame cathedral.

To get the deal, you must depart and return Monday through Thursday.  There’s a 3-day advance purchase requirement, and tickets are limited.  I was able to find lots of open seats through late April, when it starts to get warmer.

Emily and I enjoyed our time in Paris!

Which Card to Use?

Remember to pay with a card that will earn you bonus points for your ticket:

Link:   Hot Deals – Hotel Credit Cards

If you book a cheap flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending!

Check out my favorite Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, Ritz-Carlton, and Starwood hotels in Europe!

To find hotels that can be booked with points, I like using Hotel Hustle (which even shows you if rooms are actually available!) or AwardMapper.

Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.

Note:  Folks who want to book paid stays could check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals.  But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized).

Airbnb is another terrific way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays.  Or for folks to prefer a more local feel.  Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price, and how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.

Bottom Line

Under $500 for round-trip flights to Paris is an excellent deal!

Fly from New York or Chicago to Paris starting at ~$491 round-trip in coach on LOT.

Travel through April, and be sure to purchase your tickets 3 days in advance.  To get the deal, depart and return Monday through Thursday.
