Change to our itinerary

Jump to last reply

My wife and kids are traveling to London and Paris in July. Originally, the plan was to fly to London (Heathrow) and take the Eurostar to Paris. After a few days in Paris, return to London via the Eurostar and fly back to the U.S. from Heathrow.

We've noticed that Eurostar tickets, however, for this timeframe are selling out and prices are going up. Looking into alternative methods of travel to Paris, we've found it to be less expensive to fly from Heathrow to CDG in Paris.

We've already booked their flights in and out of Heathrow for travel from and to the United States, so this wouldn't be a connecting flight but rather a separate flight. How long is necessary to account for immigration upon landing in London before being ready to fly to Paris? It will all be the same day, but with their flight landing in London at 10am (if on time), I don't want to book them on a flight to Paris at 11am if immigration will take too long. By the same token, I'd rather not have them sitting in the airport all day by booking their Paris flight too late in the day.

In a nutshell, would a 1pm flight be realistic? 3pm? Should we consider an alternative method of travel? She has NO interest in driving in a foreign country, so renting a vehicle is out of the question. Were I traveling with them, it may have been an option.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
