 Peak season:

Springtime is very popular in the romantic city of Paris, so it is often considered peak season in the French capital. Increased flight costs and larger crowds come with that appeal, but this also extends to autumn time as well, to experience Paris culture book flights to Paris during September to November—these are the months when Parisians have returned to the city after their own holidays to make it, well, more Parisian.

 Off season:

Paris gets rather cold during the winter months between November and March, which arguably adds to its charm and makes it even more memorable as a holiday destination. For this reason, it gets fewer tourists and has its off season during this time, so you’re most likely to get cheap flights to Paris in winter. That does not apply to Christmastime, however, as tourists flock to the French capital to enjoy a quintessentially French festive break.

When is the best time to book a flight to Paris?

Summer brings out the tourists in Paris, and that means soaring temperatures and soaring airfare. If you want to visit between late May and August, book early to find the best deals. Start looking at least four months in advance. Spring and fall offer comfortable temperatures and cheaper airfare, making those times a good balance of cost and comfort. Another perk? The city is much less crowded, so you won’t have to compete with other tourists. Winter brings the cheapest airfare to Paris, but you also face cold temperatures, gray skies and windy, damp weather. For off-peak times, booking one to four months in advance is best, unless you’re traveling during a holiday. Book early for trips during summer, school breaks or holidays. Midweek booking often results in the lowest fares.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Paris?

Wednesday is currently, on average, the cheapest day to fly to Paris. Flying on Friday will result in higher flight prices.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Paris?

At the moment, flights in the evening are likely to offer the best value for money for your Paris trip. A flight in the afternoon will more often than not be of higher cost.

Paris Travel Guide

 Paris, the City of Light, is one of the world’s most magical cities, a byword for romance, glamour and style. Its landmarks – the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, L’Opéra de la Bastille, Notre Dame Cathedral – are world famous.

Its 20 arrondissements spiral out from the middle of the city on the right bank of the River Seine, each one with its own personality. La Cite, part of the 1st District, is the historic heart of Paris, home to the cathedral and the Sainte Chappelle. The Latin Quarter is the traditional student quarter, centered on the Sorbonne and Panthéon, a district of cheap restaurants and charming old streets. Pigalle and Montmartre, the ninth and 18th arondissements, are where Paris parties. Le Marais is the Jewish quarter and the 13th district, Chinatown, is where Paris’s large Chinese, Vietnamese and Cambodian communities live and trade.

Paris’s sweeping boulevards, public squares, fine palaces, old townhouses, little market streets and hidden courtyards contain a wealth of attractions with more than enough to occupy tourists who have landed on cheap flights to Paris.

Book airline tickets to Paris and you’re on your way to haute cuisine, world-famous art and architecture, and a glimpse into the aristocratic lifestyle of centuries past. While your flight to Paris might be cramped and full of minuscule airline snacks, your meal in Paris will be decadent.

Don’t pack too much on your flight to Paris; it’s possible you’ll leave France with a new wardrobe. From Armani and Chanel to Prada and Louis Vuitton, Paris fashion certainly makes a statement. Make sure you bring an extra suitcase with you – you’ll need it after a stroll down the Champs-Elysees or the Avenue Montaigne, two of Paris’ most frequented shopping streets. But Paris offer more than just food and fashion. A quick jaunt down the 18th arrondissement will land travelers in Montmartre where lesser-known painters created names for themselves and cancan dancers greeted guests at the famous Moulin Rouge. The Sacre Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) sits at the top of the hill and remains a must-see destination point for Paris visitors.

Good news for travelers: cheap plane tickets to Paris can always be found if you’re flexible with your travel dates. Whether you want to stand at the top of the Eiffel Tower or walk along the River Siene, flights to Paris from major U.S. cities are easy to book and readily available.

Hop in a cab, give your driver the required fare and enjoy the scenes and sights along the way to your hotel. After a cup of coffee and a fresh croissant, you’ll be ready to take on the City of Light.

Getting to and around the city of Paris

The French capital has two main airports: Charles de Gaulle International Airport (CDG), which is the largest in France and Orly Airport (ORY), which is also international, but serves the majority of domestic flights that come in and out of Paris.

Named after the former French president, Charles de Gaulle Airport is France’s largest international airport. Distance to the city center is 16 miles north-east of Paris.

The bus and coach provide plentiful alternatives for travel between CDG and the city or, indeed, CDG and Orly airport. Fares start at €2 ($2) and go up to €21 ($22), depending on your final destination.

If you are going to Disneyland Paris, take the Magical Shuttle that runs from Charles de Gaulle straight to the theme park.

 Getting between terminals of Charles de Gaulle Airport: free shuttles N1 and N2 run different routes throughout the terminals in public spaces and are by far the easiest way to get around in Charles de Gaulle.

If you are connecting flights there, there are five color-coded shuttles that can help you get directly to the correct terminal: green, blue, yellow, red and orange. Be sure to check ahead of your journey to find out which one you will need according to your flights.

The Orlyval is an automatic metro that runs from both terminals to Antony RER Station on the other side of Paris to the airport.
