Deal alert: Flights to Paris from $357 round trip
If you've been dreaming of creating your own "Emily in Paris" travelogue, this new travel deal is for you. Flights to Paris from various U.S. cities in the fall and winter are on sale for less than $400 round-trip for travel on TAP Air Portugal. Departure cities in this deal include Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Miami, New York and even San Francisco. There are some incredible fares available, so don't wait too long to book.
This sale is for TAP's economy tier, so checked bags are not included. Tip: It will cost you roughly $65 each way to upgrade to a fare that includes a free bag, and that's less expensive than paying for a checked bag each way.

Check out this stellar fare from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Paris-Orly Airport (ORY) in late October for only $357 round trip. There is a layover in Lisbon each way, and as mentioned earlier, checked bags will cost extra. You do get a free carry-on so if you travel light, you can avoid the bag fees. Also, this ticket is almost $600 cheaper than normal for this itinerary.
You can book a flight from Dulles International Airport (IAD) outside Washington, D.C., to Paris in October for just $410 round-trip. Same as with flying from New York, you have a layover in Lisbon each way.

Paris in the fall at rock-bottom prices? Mmm, we can almost taste the freshly baked croissant already. The only downside is that you're booking travel that's still at least six months away. However, that just means you have more time to plan the perfect itinerary for when you arrive.
