Have you been yearning for some Paris in your life? With round-trip flights to France’s capital for under $320, there’s no reason you can’t hop aboard and enjoy a little time in the world’s most romantic city.

Let’s take a closer look at this deal.

Fare Deal — Details

If there is a route you’re looking to book, you’ll want to act quickly. We don’t expect this pricing to last.

  • Class: Economy
  • Routes: Chicago (ORD), New York (JFK, EWR), Boston (BOS), San Francisco (SFO), and Washington, D.C. (IAD, BWI) to Paris (CDG, ORY)
  • Dates: February 2023 to November 2023
  • Rates: As low as $311 round-trip

This sale comes courtesy of a variety of airlines, although the cheapest rates are operated by Icelandic carrier PLAY, which means you’ll see a stop in Reykjavik (KEF) on your way to Paris.

At just $311 round-trip, you won’t find prices much lower than that. Be aware, however, PLAY is a low-cost carrier, which means you’ll need to be on the lookout for fees. This includes additional costs for bringing a carry-on bag and selecting your seat.

Cheap rates are pretty widespread, including options from Boston for just a few dollars more.

Don’t count out the West Coast, either, as Portuguese airline TAP is offering routes for as low as $373. This is an excellent rate for West Coast flights — generally, you can expect to see pricing hovering between $900 and $1,200 for a roundtrip flight:

Best Ways To Book

Because you’ll be paying cash for these tickets, you’ll want to use a card that’ll give you elevated earnings for your purchase. This includes travel rewards credit cards such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which will earn you 3x Ultimate Rewards points per $1 spent. We value Chase points at 2 cents each, which means that you’ll net a 6% return on all travel bookings when using this card to pay. This is true even when booking via a third party.

If you’re choosing to book directly with the airline, The Platinum Card® from American Express is the card you’ll want to use. It earns 5x Membership Rewards points per $1 spent (up to $500,000 per year). Because we value Amex points at 2.2 cents each, you’ll be scoring an 11% return on your booking with the Amex Platinum card.

Final Thoughts
