These days, finding a cheap flight to France does not necessarily mean that you are compromising on the quality of the flight, or the service provided by the airline. Lots of major airlines have found it necessary to reduce the price of their chartered flights to France in order to compete with the smaller discount airline companies that have sprung up in the last few years. This means that it is perfectly feasible to get a return flight for well under £100, with your complimentary gin and tonic and light snack included in the price.

Most bargain flight operators will offer sandwiches and refreshments on board, but as you will have to pay for them separately it is worth factoring this extra cost into your budget.

The internet is the main reason for the recent onslaught of cheap deals on flights across the world, and especially in Europe. An internet based company does not have the same overheads as a high street agent, namely the cost of renting the premises, and so it is able to pass these savings on to the customer by offering cheap deals on flights.

If you want to ensure that you get the cheapest deal possible, whether you decide to buy from a large or a small flight operator, there are a number of rules to bear in mind. Choose a flight time that is very early in the morning or late at night, in other words a less popular flight time, and you will find that the prices are reduced accordingly. Also, be sure to book well in advance and you will benefit from cheap deals because the flight operators like to book up their seats early on. If it is not possible to book very early, try a last minute deal because operators will reduce their prices in the last few days before the flight in order to fill up the remaining seats on the plane.

However, be aware that cheap online flight operators do not always include the cost of tax in their quoted prices this is usually added on at the checkout point and they often quote the price for a one way ticket, then charge a lot more for the return journey. This could mean that an apparently good deal on a flight to Paris is in fact twice or three times the amount originally quoted once you start looking into it.

And if you do manage to book early/late for an off peak cheap flight, make sure that there is transport at the other end to whisk you into the city. You don't want to be stuck at the city's second airport, 30km out of town at 6am with no way of getting to civilization until 9am!
