We think the urge to travel has only grown stronger since the COVID-19 pandemic. Paris continues to be the most popular destination for travelers from all over the world. If you have not been to the capital of France yet, then you definitely should to visit there. How much does it cost, a trip to Paris? We tried to calculate the approximate cost of a trip for tourists with different budgets.

The ticket price is indicated with departure from New York.

Best Deals for VIP-persons and the wealthy travelers

There are quite a few people who prefer all the best in travel: a business-class cabin on an airplane, good hotels, a taxi for VIPs to the airport. This is necessary to highlight their image as a successful person and to preserve their privacy.

Christmas and New Year is a very good time for traveling. But the prices for air tickets and accommodation at this time are very high.

Suppose that we go to Paris around December 23, and return to the US around January 02.

One of the flight options. AirFrance business class round-trip ticket could be bought at a price of $2397 today. (NY John F. Kennedy International Airport - Charles de Gaulle Airport.)

You can choose another flight, for example. La Compagnie boutique airline company ( DreamJet SAS) offers business class flights between Paris Orly Airport (France) and Newark Liberty International Airport (US) for $ 2,215.

You need a nice hotel too. For example, consider the five-star La Tremoille Paris hotel. The hotel is located very convenient for tourists, roughly between the Champs Elysées and the Eiffel Tower. The cost of a spacious room in this hotel today was $350 per day. (We wanted to offer you the legendary Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris 5 star hotel, but there were no available rooms for the entire period alredy.)

How do you plan to get from the airport to the hotel? We assume that you are not taking the bus or subway. The solution is simple - order a taxi.
🚕 You can book a taxi from the airport to the hotel before the trip, online. (You can choose the type of car during the booking process.)

You probably want to visit some guided tours during the trip. Order a personal guide if you do not want to travel in a group.

The cost of a ten-day trip to a luxury hotel for two will be quite expensive. (It can be assumed, it is much more than 10 thousand dollars.) Many people do not need some of the services offered to rich people. But, in order to confirm their status, they have to fly in the business class by airplanes of the best airlines and live in luxury hotels.

Middle class travel

The peak of the tourist season falls on the summer, Christmas and New Year's Eve. If you want to save money, then you better choose another time to travel to Paris. For example, April or May. At this time, the weather in the city is already good, but prices have not yet reached their maximum (vacation season has not started yet).

We depart from New York at the end of April, we return from Paris in May. This is a great time to travel. Round-trip ticket for these dates today could be bought at a price of 438 dollars. Flight by American Airlines to France and Iberia Ailines back (with an intermediate landing in Madrid). (You can also visit Madrid for one trip.) The cost of direct flights starts from 450 dollars (Norwegian airlines).

Let's choose a hotel. As a good option we suggest to consider «Hotel Lorette — Astotel» 3 star hotel(3 stars). The hotel is located very convenient for tourists, between Montmartre and the Champs Elysées. The North station is also within walking distance. (You can get to the airport conveniently by public transport from the North Station.) Near the hotel there is a supermarket where you can buy croissants, cheese, wine and other food. Some cafes are also on walking distance.

The cost of a double room in this hotel starts from about US$152 per day (2018). You can get from the airport to the Northern Station by commuter trains of the "RER" system or by bus (the cheapest option).

It will be more convenient for you to order a taxi if you have large-sized luggage or if you travel with children.

You also need to reserve money for food, entertainment and transportation.
Such a trip from the US to Paris will cost at least $2,000 for two people (with a one-week vacation). You can save if you choose a cheaper hotel or shorten your vacation duration. (It's cheaper to travel on weekdays, excluding weekends and holidays.)

You can choose and order a sightseeing tour online. We also recommend buying an e-ticket to the Louvre or the Eiffel Tower (so as not to waste time in line at the cash register).

Cheap trip to Paris

Travel to Paris will be quite expensive, even if you try to save on everything. First, you need to choose a time when fewer tourists will be in the city. At this time, you can find hotels and air tickets at more favorable prices (compared with the peak of the tourist season). For example, February or March.

It's cheaper to spend the night at the hostel. For example, the bed at the A good hostel «Peace & Love Hostel» for these dates costs from 22USD per day. The hostel is located near the Gare du Nord, next to the Jaurès metro station. The distance to the Louvre is about 3.5 kilometers.

The hostel has a kitchen with an oven, a microwave and a fridge. This makes it possible to save a little on nutrition. You will find a supermarket nearby.
