Deal Alert: Nonstop Flights to Paris From $276 Round-Trip
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
While there have been recent demonstrations in certain areas of Paris, there's still plenty to do and see in the City of Light. And, the decrease in demand for Paris flights has driven prices down — meaning now's your chance to book a cheap flight for 2019.
Note that many deals are in basic economy — so you’ll have to forgo a free checked bag and upgrade eligibility. However, you can carry on a bag with all these tickets, and using an airline cobranded credit card can defeat some negative aspects of basic economy.
To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or through an OTA like Priceline or Expedia.
