Cheapest way to fly from Washington, DC to Paris and Berlin?

We would like to take our son to Paris from Washington, DC for about 3 days and then travel to Berlin for another 3 days and back to D.C. Anyone have suggestions on cheapest way to do this? Txs.

Consider an open jaw out of IAD or BWI to CDG; Easyjet from Paris Orly to Berlin; return from Berlin to IAD or BWI

Hi R,

With only 6 nights, I would go to either Paris or Berlin.

You are going to lose nearly a whole day changing venues.

Oh dear, I misunderstood. You are leaving your son in Paris.

No, all three of us will be traveling together and return home. Perhaps since we area spending some much $ on flights, we should stay longer in each place. I really don't understand what an openjaw ticket is and does it cost a lot more?

Txs.

A so-called "open jaw" itinerary is one which involves flying into one destiantion and out of a different one back to the origination point.

These fares aren't necessarily any more expensive than flying a round trip into a single destination.

You can also use www.itasoftware.com and its multiple destination page. If price is more important to you than which of the three area airports you leave from then input WAS as the origination and return point.

I see Wally has seconded my recommendation for using a different (possibly budget) airline to get between Paris and Berlin
