Trip Report My Super Low Budget Trip to Paris

Jump to last reply

This trip to Paris was arranged a bit impulsively. I already have an October trip to London and Rome that I am supposed to be saving for. But then, late last December, I got an email from Travel Zoo telling me I could to fly roundtrip to Paris from Toronto for a grand total of $550.

$550......Really? I just spent more than that on Christmas gifts for people I barely like or know. Maybe it was the post-Christmas blahs, or maybe it was the stress and work load at the office finally getting me down, but suddenly I felt like I needed- like I deserved- a vacation.

The hamsters had their work cut out for them as the wheels in my head kicked into gear and slowly started turning. Before I booked a non-refundable, non-transferable plane ticket, I needed to make sure I could secure an inexpensive place to stay.

I sent out an email to the owners of a little studio apartment I first saw on the SlowTravel website a couple of years ago, and have had bookmarked ever since. I received a response the very next day. Yes, they had the dates I wanted in late April available and yes, the total price for a stay of one week would be 300€.

I immediately booked the apartment and bought my airline tickets. And just in a nick of time too, as it was the last day of the ticket sale. Before I knew it, I had a trip to Paris to plan. Isn’t the internet amazing?
