After doing a bit of research and talking to many people we have found that the cheapest way to go back home is via Paris!
Just to put it into perspective(the flights below are just random dates we selected using SkyScanner)
Sydney Kingsford Smith (SYD) to Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) – AU$1’328! (RETURN)
Melbourne (MEL) to Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) – AU$1’283! (RETURN!)
Your probably looking at the above and saying
I am going to Cork/Dublin not Paris De Gaulle!!!
Well if you can get it for that cheap, with the difference you can actually afford to chill out in Paris for 3 -4 days have a little break and fly direct to Cork or Dublin or wherever you want to go.
Lets face it a typical return flight can cost anywhere from AU$1800 – AU$2000, and that is if you get a good deal.
Q. I am looking to go to Cork/Dublin for a month in Summer next year how much will it cost?
Melbourne (MEL) to Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Sun 1 June – Mon 30 June: AU$1282!!!!
There is probably a lot of people saying not a hope is it that cheap well we have attached a screen shot as proof: :)
Okay so now you arrived in Paris and have to get a flight to Cork or Dublin, your probably saying oh sure you’ll get burnt on the flight over. Well we did another search and see below what we found!
Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) to Cork (ORK) – Wed 4 Jun – Sun 29 Jun – AU$226
Of course we have taken a screen shot for this as well:
Total For Flights: AU1508! :) Not bad!
So if you had budgeted a months holiday back to Ireland to meet up with friends and family consider this as you could spend the additional $500 you would of spend on a little pre holiday in Paris. Of course you will have baggage to but if you are only going for a month you shouldn’t be travelling to heavily(easier said than done)
Below we have the Sky-scanner Widget For Your Convenience(Might not show up yet we are working on it)
We found these flights in about 10 minutes of searching! So if anyone finds a cheaper deal let us know and we will gladly post it up or message us on Facebook
Hopefully it will save you some money on your flights and depending on the times you go I am sure it will save you some of that hard earned money!
