Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare between New York and Paris starts from $756 in late November (Icelandair). Add to that $185 per person without taxes for three nights at the Hotel Kyriad Tours Centre, $105 per person without taxes for two nights at the Hotel Kyriad Caen Nord Memorial, and $96 per person including taxes for two nights at the Timhotel Boulevard Berthier, and you're already spending $1,142 on airfare and accommodations alone. For $357 more than that, this travel package gives you the same perks, plus a six-day car rental, daily breakfast, and covers all hotel and air taxes and fees.
More Several optional tours are also available, including a romantic cruise down the River Seine by night for $49 per person, a half-day guided tour of Versailles Palace for $103 per person, and a half-day guided tour of several Paris attractions—including the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Palace de la Concorde, and the Champs Elysées—the for $75 per person.
