Visiting Paris on a budget is very possible this summer, with hotel rates and airfares down partly because of terrorism fears.

However, if you want to splurge, now can be an opportune time, because high-end travel options to the City of Lights are also heavily discounted.

For instance, in celebration of La Compagnie’s third anniversary, the all-business-class airline is reducing airfares from Newark to Paris’s Charles de Gaulle. With The Family Trip offer, adults pay $1,300 round trip and kids pay $1,000 — saving children $800 dollars and adults $500 as tickets for La Compagnie normally start at $1,800 roundtrip. For example, a total savings of $2,600 for a family of four.  (Book and travel July 10-Aug. 27.)

Once in Paris, the elegant Le Meurice is also discounting its traditionally pricey room rates – with a 4 Nights for the Price of 3 offer.  This offer includes luxury accommodations for two, complimentary  access to the sauna, hammam and fitness center.

(Travel dates: July 9, 2017 – August 31, 2017.)

Le Meurice is also offering Family Time, which gives travelers 50% off their children’s room when they book two rooms at Le Meurice, and a special kids’ passport filled with fun challenges to guide them around the city’s famous landmarks and a hotel treasure hunt.

What’s the Deal?

Ok, so this isn’t the biggest bargain in the world, but it is a chance to splurge on a 5-star visit to Paris.

Le Meurice is one of the city’s best hotels, dripping in opulence, fresh from a major redesign by Philippe Starck.

With a superior room quoted starting around $920 a night, with a fourth night free, it works out to just over $700 a night.

The business class airfare deal is excellent, when you take into account that $1300 roundtrip was a coach class fare not so long ago. Plus you get in-flight amenities such as Samsung Galaxy tablets, Caudalie cosmetic kits and La Carte dining service.
