I see London, I see France: These are some of the lowest prices we’ve seen to the United Kingdom and the City of Love. According to Google Flights, current fares are “$511 cheaper than usual. The least expensive flights for similar trips to Paris, Dublin, Glasgow, Edinburgh, London usually cost between $540–2,000.”
Deals are available from more cities than are listed here, but these are the lowest-fare origin cities we’ve found.
Many of these fares begin in basic economy. Basic economy means different things to different airlines, but you might not have free use of the overhead bins for a carry-on bag, and you probably won’t be able to select your seat, get an upgrade, or earn elite-qualifying miles on your preferred airlines.
To find a deal, 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 an OTA like Orbitz or Expedia.
