Why It’s a Deal According to a recent Kayak search, the lowest round-trip fares between Miami and Paris are about $870 with taxes for travel in late September/early October (TAP Portugal). Add to that $438 per person with taxes for six nights, not including breakfast, at the Timhotel Boulevard Berthier Paris XVII, and you’d be paying a total of $1,308 if you booked the components of this package independently. For $130 less, this Virgin Vacations package includes the airfare, six nights’ hotel, all taxes and fees, plus breakfast.
More Optional activities include an evening cruise on the River Seine ($49 per person), French wine tasting ($40 per person), or a tour of Fontainebleau and Barbizon ($96 per person). Additional nights at the Timhotel Boulevard Berthier start from $74 per person per night. Hotel upgrades start from an additional $50 per person for six nights at A la Villa Saint-Martin.
