How does Paris for Valentine’s Day next year sound? ^_^

EVA Air, one of the top 10 airlines in the world, is currently offering round-trip tickets to Paris for only $480, for flights departing January, February or March 2017. That’s just a little over PHP 23,000 for tickets that usually cost PHP 50,000 or more! Take note these flights to Paris depart from Hong Kong but you can nearly always get cheap tickets to Hong Kong from the Philippines, so that’s not going to be a problem.

Here’s how to book:

_

Go to Google Flights.

_
In the Where from? box, type HKG (or Hong Kong). In the Where to? box, type PAR (or Paris).

Click on the box for the departure date (the one below the Where from? box) and a two-month calendar will drop down. Use the right and left arrows to navigate between months. The $480 tickets start in January 2017 — they’re the lowest priced tickets so they’ll be in green, easy to spot. If you want to arrive in Paris on February 14 exactly, choose February 13 as your ETD.

Next, click on the box for your return date (below the Where to? box). You might have to wait a few (milli)seconds for the prices to populate. Choose a date that also shows $480, e.g., February 27.

Google Flights will give you a list of flight options, first for your outbound flight and then for your return flight. For both, choose the $480 EVA Air option.

When you have selected your outbound and return flights, Google will give you links for booking your flight — directly with EVA Air or with booking engines such as Expedia.

Just click on one of those blue buttons, book, and voila! Valentines in Paris! 🙂

For your flight from the Philippines to Hong Kong, the price will vary, but definitely look out for seat sales. (Read: Piso Sale! How to Get the Cheapest Airfare Deals.) During the last piso sale, I was able to book a Cebu-Hong Kong flight for PHP 151 and a Hong Kong-Cebu flight for PHP 1,063.10, for a Cebu-HK round-trip total of PHP 1,214.10.

To give you an idea of how much a trip to Paris can cost, read this:

It’s an old article and some of the prices may have increased a bit, but it will give you an idea of the expenses involved.

The article above is based on a frugal 7-day Paris budget. If you’re the type who’s willing to spend a bit more for a more comfortable vacation, this article will be a better fit for you: How Much Does A European Trip Cost?
