Looking to utilize all those years of french i took in school, or at least try to.... But Rountrip Flights in the Summer are $$$$$$! Everything i've seen is like $1500.

Is there a much more frugal way to get to Paris? Maybe Fly to the Nice or Lyon then take a train. Or maybe even flying into more northern countries. Fly to the UK and swim across the channel? anything...so i can spend more money at colette.


Merci pour l'aide.

Handcuff yourself to an inflatable sex doll and pretend you're doing a charity jail break and have to get
as far away from wherever you live in 72 hrs as you can. I remember reading about this granny from
Scotland who did one of those things and ended up in Zimbabwe or something.

if you book early/ get a deal, you can get to Paris for £35 from London on the Eurostar, however the pricing structure seems pretty random at best, and a cheap flight could be a better option.

Or a get a bus, they can be super cheap - sometimes £9-odd each way I think

^thanx for the in fo cue..


This might actually work...looking at flights to London roundtrip seems to be around $800-1000, plus Eurostar from London to paris is around $60 USD....which is much much cheaper than the $1300 straight to paris.


EDIT:Can i as how long it takes between the two places, on rail?
Eurostar says 2.5hrs.


Thanx again...

S'dead quick. Takes about 2.5 hrs. Unless they find any unexploded WW2 ordnance near the line or any tunnels/ supermarket carparks/ east end houses collapse on the train.

But bear in mind they don't let you on if you're handcuffed to that inflatable sex doll.

check out this airline
http://www.flyzoom.c...pubDsp.dspHome

it's a low fare flying from canada to europe (don't know where you are so it might not be helpfull). it's really cheap, a summer flight might cost you as little as 500$ (i wouldn't count on it now cause it's quite late and many flights are sold out, but i'll be much cheaper than with a regular airline).

you can also try priceline, sometimes you can find pretty good bargain.
