I honestly don’t have a budget when I plan a trip to Paris. That doesn’t mean that I don’t have ways I save on my trip.
Here is some ways I save money when I travel to Paris.
(This is not an ad. I am not getting paid for any of this info.)

There is a reason why Paris in the fall is my favorite time to visit. It’s technically off season for travelers, so I can usually find more affordable flights from September-December in Paris if I book early. I try to book my flight to Paris at least three months in advance to save the most coins. I always track my flights on Google Flights and the Hopper app.

When I book my airline flights for my yearly travels, I buy them on all the same credit card and pay it off. I rack up thousands of points doing so without interest. I use those points and save hundreds when I book my flight to Paris.
I have an Amex Platinum credit card which comes with tons of travel perks such as 5x points on hotel bookings, $200 hotel travel credit, travel lounge access, travel insurance and more.

If I’m not booking my flights through my travel credit card website for more points, then I book them on Booking.com. I have booked so many hotels through Booking.com this year that I automatically save 10% of my future hotel stays and free breakfast at certain hotels.
*This year Booking.com even paid for my transport from CDG to my hotel in Paris saving me $100USD. It pays (LESS) to book consistently.
I also save money during my Paris travels by walking the city or using public transportation/ Metro as much as I can.
