Easyjet paris to London

Our Holiday is ending in Paris and we will be flying back from London to Vancouver Canada. My question is taveling from paris to London the day before our flight home would it be better or easier to use the Eurostar or EasyJet. The price of easyjet is so low I can't hardly beleive its real. 50 euros for 2 people including taxes. Comments? and Thx

Eurostar goes from the Gare du Nord in Paris to Waterloo station in London. Easyjet go to an airport a long way from London. Eurostar has a half-hour check-in time and a journey time of around 2 hrs 35 mins, so the total journey will be less than by air.

Consider BMI - http://www.flybmi.com . They often have cheap rates and fly CDG-LHR.

Keep in mind that Luton, north of London is the arrival of EasyJet flights from CDG, if you leave from LHR it requires more time and added expenses.

Luton is slightly further from the centre of London than Heathrow, but the train from Luton takes about as long as the tube from Heathrow, so it's really immaterial. However, you do have to get out from Paris, go through the terminal experience, fly to Luton, get the bus 5 mins to the airport station, take the train, then probably change to the tube.

Presumably you've already planned to travel the day before the transatlantic flight, so you've no particular interest in using the same London airport for both flights. If you planned to stay overnight at the airport, take Will's advice about cheapos on bmi (though check AF and BA too)

Eurostar almost always is the quickest way between the two centres, and is less hassle for most people. It's very unlikely to be anywhere near as cheap as Easyjet, though in the time since you posted the amazingly cheap flight has probably disappeared.

Understand EasyJet's idiosyncrasies (this board is stuffed with descriptions), and then decide between the relative prices and convenience.
